4 Telltale Signs That It’s Time to Call a Professional Plumber

Our daily routines are so jam-packed with responsibilities, between work, family and social commitments, that when an issue pops up around the house, it can be very tempting to just ignore it and hope it goes away.

At McClain Bros. Plumbing & Heating, we see this all the time with plumbing problems. Homeowners dismiss a poorly functioning system as something they simply have to live with because they don’t want to take the time or spend the money to call in a professional and nip the problem in the bud. Then, guess what? The problems get worse and end up costing the homeowner more time and money.

We don’t want that to happen to you. If you witness any of the following warning signs, pick up the phone and give us a call at 215-788-0803 to schedule service!

Sign 1: Gurgling Sounds

Water makes noise, whether it’s flowing through your dishwasher, garbage disposal, toilet or washing machine. Pipes, however, should not make noise. If you suddenly hear gurgling coming from your plumbing, where there once was silence, there’s a good chance those pipes are clogged and need to be unclogged before your water flow is dramatically reduced.

Sign 2: Strange Odors

This is one you certainly don’t want to live with for very long. The smell of sewage means there’s a leak or breakage somewhere in your drainage system. There are a number of potential culprits, but we’re guessing you don’t want to go investigate this for yourself.

Sign 3: Slow Drains

It seems rather obvious that if you’re experiencing a backup in your sinks or showers, there’s something amiss, whether it’s the cumulative effect of too much hair or grease going down the drain or a sign of a more significant problem. Either way, it’s frustrating — and pretty gross, too! Pouring out a bunch of liquid drain cleaner and hoping for a change is not the answer.

Sign 4: Plunging Is Futile

Speaking of at-home plumbing remedies…if all you’ve been getting out of your efforts to plunge your sink or toilet is a good workout, and backups continue to occur, stop the madness! There’s definitely a reason why your plunger isn’t working, and you’re going to need some help to find out what it is.

Really, if anything weird has been happening with your plumbing system, it’s best to act sooner rather than later. You do not have to live with subpar plumbing when there’s a reliable, affordable plumbing company right in your backyard who can get you fixed up and back to normal in a jiffy, without breaking your bank.

That company is McClain Bros., and we look forward to serving you. Let us prove the difference a professional plumber can make in your quality of life! Call us today.
