5 Signs You Need Professional Drain Cleaning in Michigan


No matter how careful you are with your drains, you’ll eventually have to deal with one clogging. You might have cleaning products or home remedies that can deal with these clogs. However, you’ll eventually find a clog that is just too tough. When that happens, you’ll need to call Vander Hyde to provide professional drain cleaning for your Michigan home. But how do you know when you need to call in professionals?

Here are five signs you should call for professional drain cleaning:

Backed up drains

When your drains are clogged for a decent bit of time, you’ll eventually start seeing sewage come back up the drain. It’s an obvious problem that requires quick attention. You can also tell a drain is backed up when it makes gurgling noises or there’s standing water in your sink.

Unpleasant odors

A highly visible and disgusting sign of a clogged drain is the stench of sewage. Anything that gets stuck in a clogged drain will have the opportunity to rot and eventually you’ll smell that rotting. If the area gets hot, the heat can make the smell even worse. If you’re smelling something nasty, call Vander Hyde and we can help clean your drains out!

Fruit and drain flies

Those sewage smells coming from your drains is surprisingly appealing to flies. Fruit flies like the sewage smell, and they can cause health problems if they get into your kitchen and food. Meanwhile, drain flies (also known as filter or sewer flies) use clogged drains, septic tanks, and sewers as breeding grounds. If you see more flies you’re used to, you might have some drain problems on your property.

Slow draining

Inefficient drains are the most obvious-sounding indicator of a clogged drain. Are you waiting too long for your washing machine to drain after a cycle? Does your sink take too long to fully drain? That means you’ve got a blockage, and you might need some professional help.

Strange noises

Clogged drains can make a variety of odd noises. When drains get clogged, the water may be forced to go through small spaces or change course. This can result in strange gurgling or bubbling noises from the drain.
