Your home’s sewer and drains play an important role in your home's plumbing system and often go unnoticed until a problem occurs. Drainage issues can range from slightly annoying situations to large scale plumbing emergencies depending on what drains in your home are obstructed. If any of the following situations are occurring in your home it is best to call a professional right away to resolve the issue before a small drain problem becomes a costly plumbing emergency.
If oils, fats, grease, and certain foods go down the drain your plumbing pipes can become clogged.

Hair, feminine hygiene products, personal wipes, Q-tips, dental floss, toilet paper, and soap scum can all cause significant buildup in your bathroom drains. If left unattended, serious plumbing problems can occur resulting in either a clogged sink drain, toilet backup, or clogged tub drain.
Sewer drain lines move waste water away from your home into the city’s sewer systems. Common indications that your sewer drain line is blocked are your toilet gurgles and doesn’t flush, tubs or showers fill up when you flush the toilet, when your washing machine is in use and draining after a cycle water comes up into the kitchen sink, shower, or bathtub, and multiple plumbing drains are clogged throughout your home.
All of these instances can indicate you have a serious drainage issue and cause considerable problems or damage to your plumbing system. If these plumbing issues are not fixed properly and resolved quickly, they can cause permanent damage and costly repairs to your home or business; not to mention pose significant health risks to you and your family.

Items put down your drains, including your toilet, that you should never dispose of include: coffee grounds, feminine products, ‘flushable’ wipes, or mounds of hair. Flushing these items regularly can produce a large clog that will ultimately backup your pipes, and require the help of a professional plumber to get the clog cleared.
Most importantly, avoid using chemical drain cleaners! They will slowly eat away at your pipes and usually don’t work anyway. In many cases, especially with larger clogs, trying to fix a clogged drain on your own can make things worse. Your best to contact a professional plumbing company to resolve difficult drainage issues.
For regular drain maintenance, you can either rinse your drains with a large container of very hot water followed with a pot of cool water, or a 1:1 solution of baking soda and vinegar followed by running hot water drain the drain the next morning. These maintenance techniques will help prevent muck from building up in your drains.
While a slow draining sink is an obvious indication you have a clogged drain, there are other less obvious indications that you should also be familiar with such as:
Low Water Pressure: The plumbing system in your home depends on pressure to move water from one location to another. When a blockage occurs in your plumbing system, you can quickly find yourself with low water pressure in your kitchen, bathroom, or any other fixture around your home.
Foul Smells: Anytime residue gets stuck in your plumbing pipes, it can easily begin to decompose and eventually leads to disturbing foul odors coming from your pipes. This is especially true for drains that deal with food waste.
Water Leaks: If water can not drain properly it will eventually escape from another location. Whether that’s under a sink, around faucets or around your toilet, water leaks could indicate there is a clogged drain causing the backflow.
Constant Clogs: If you’re dealing with clogs daily, or in multiple fixtures at the same time, you may have a more serious clog deeper in your piping that needs to be resolved by a trained professional.
