Signs a Clog is Coming

Most clogs don’t suddenly appear; they develop over time due to the accumulation of soap scum, biological debris, hair, paper, and more. Don’t let a minor issue escalate into a major headache—contact IAQ Medics for prompt drain cleaning and clog removal if you notice:

  • Slow Draining Sinks: Slow water movement indicates a developing clog, which could soon lead to a completely blocked toilet, drain, or fixture.
  • Unusual Odors: The distinct smell of sewage or decaying material in your home often points to problematic pipes or drains.
  • Recurring Clogs: If a persistent clog resists clearing, it’s time for a plumber’s expertise and specialized tools to address the issue properly.

If you’re in Northern Virginia, Indoor Air Quality Medics is available to assess your situation, provide tailored solutions, and get the job done right, the first time. For immediate assistance, call us 24/7.

Why do You Need Professional Drain Cleaning?

Clogged drains are a leading cause of costly leaks and water damage in homes. Store-bought cleaners offer quick fixes that can harm your plumbing system, and homemade solutions, typically don’t resolve the issue.

Sinks, Tubs & Showers

If your sink, tub or shower takes a long time to fully drain, you may have a buildup of soap scum, hair, skin cells or debris. A good cleaning may resolve the clog causing your slow drainage issues. However, if you notice multiple drains in your house are clogging and your toilets aren’t flushing well, you may have a backup or clog in your main drain that could also be affecting your sewer line.

If that’s the case, Indoor Air Quality Medics can find the issue, recommend the necessary course of action, and work quickly and efficiently to get your drains working again.

How Do I Know if I Need Drain Cleaning?

Normal buildup in your pipes is expected but can lead to serious clogs if unattended. We recommend yearly drain cleaning to prevent normal buildup from becoming full-blown clogs. Look out for these telltale signs that suggest your drains need cleaning:

  • Slow Water Drainage: A clear sign that a clog is forming.
  • Noticeable, Rank Odors: Foul smells from sinks or toilets indicate trapped decaying material.
  • Frequent Clogging: Regular backups are a red flag that your drains need attention.
  • Gurgling Sounds: If flushing the toilet causes your sink to gurgle, it’s a sign of a potential venting issue.
