Signs You Need to Clean Your Drains

Regularly cleaning your sinks is a task that often slips our minds. You might notice your sink draining slowly, but it's easy to forget as soon as you leave the kitchen or bathroom. Consistent drain cleaning is essential to remove the accumulation of hair, soap residue, and even leftover food particles.

Here are three signs to watch out for that indicate it's time to clean your drains:

  • Unpleasant Odors: If your drain emits an unpleasant odor, it's a clear indication that it needs cleaning. This is a common issue, especially in kitchen sinks, where food waste can become trapped in the drainage system, leading to rot and unpleasant smells. Don't hesitate to contact our expert Andover Drain Cleaning team when you notice this odor.
  • Slow Drainage: Clogged drains don't usually happen overnight. They often start as slow drains and gradually worsen, eventually leading to a complete blockage of water flow. If you observe slow drainage, it's a good idea to reach out to us for assistance.
  • Annual Maintenance: Even if you haven't noticed any of the aforementioned signs, it's wise to schedule preventative drain cleaning once a year. This not only provides peace of mind but also ensures that your drains remain in optimal condition.

What Are the Most Common Causes of Clogged Drains?

In our experience of over four decades providing dependable drain cleaning services in Andover, our plumbing team has encountered a wide array of objects and materials causing clogs.

Some of the most frequently encountered culprits for clogs include:

  • Soap scum
  • Accumulated hair
  • Buildup of dirt
  • Items like paper towels, cotton balls, and wet wipes
  • Grease and oil residues
  • Leftover food particles
  • Mineral deposits
  • Occasionally, objects such as toys or jewelry find their way into drains

It's worth noting that if your property features a significant number of trees and plants, especially near your sewer line, you should remain vigilant regarding tree roots.

Roots have a natural tendency to seek water sources, and since your sewer line contains ample moisture, they may infiltrate the line, growing and ultimately obstructing your entire drainage and sewer system.

How to Decrease the Frequency of Professional Drain Cleaning Services

  • Install a lint-catcher - When your washing machine is done, all of that dirt and debris needs to go somewhere. It's usually drained out of the appliance and often gets stuck in your machine's water line. If you install a lint-catcher, you can avoid needing our Andover drain cleaning for a substantial amount of time.
  • Dispose of your cooking oil in the trash - When you put your cooking oils down your kitchen sink, what happens is that it sticks to your pipes and catches food that's passing by causing all sorts of blockages and clogs. Instead of throwing these fatty oils down the drain try disposing of them in a milk carton.
  • Consider a hair-stopper - The most frequent reason our Andover drain cleaning experts get called into a home or apartment is because of hair in the shower drain. Hair-stoppers are cheap and easy to install and will save you from getting a puddle of water at your feet every few months.
  • Don't put the following foods in your garbage disposal: Celery, pasta, coffee grounds, rice, egg shells and chicken bones can all do serious damage to your garbage disposal and your kitchen pipes. Save yourself the hassle by throwing these food items out in the trash.

While there are many ways to prevent a clogged drain, one of the main things to remember is to be mindful of the items that you put down the drain. It is also important to teach your kids proper toilet and drain usage, so they know not to dump just any item down there.

If you’ve noticed that your drains are slow, try pouring hot water down the drain instead of buying liquid drain cleaners that are corrosive to your pipes. You may also call Simmons Plumbing for professional Andover drain cleaning. We can perform this plumbing service for you not only as a remedy to your clogged drain but also as a preventative measure to keep clogs at bay.


Give us a call at (316) 444-3900 or send us a message online to schedule an appointment. We are available for same-day drain cleaning in Andover, Wichita & surrounding areas!
