Clogged drains are bad news…
There are quite a few problems that can come from a clogged drain. These problems range from mildly annoying to seriously concerning. Here are a few of the problems that can come from leaving a clogged drain untouched:
Clogged drains bring bad odors. If food bits, grease, hair, or anything else sits for a long time, then it starts to smell. And if your drain is blocked, not letting these nasty things go anywhere, then that smell is going to go back up the drain into your home. If your home smells like sewage or rotten food, then that’s a good indication that your drain is clogged and in need of some work.
When water sits in your pipes, it can often cause other leaks to form. Water can fit through tiny openings and if it finds one, a leak will start. When water sits in one place for a long time, like it does when faced with a clogged drain, then it is more likely to find other places to go and leak through. Leaking pipes are never fun and can potentially take a lot of time and money to fix. It’s better to just fix your clogged drain quickly than have to deal with the myriad of other problems that can result from it.
Bad smells and leaks are annoying, but there are much worse things that can happen if your drain is clogged. Dirty and clogged drains aren’t just gross looking, they can also cause some serious health issues for you and your family members. When dirty water is allowed to sit for days on end, mold and bacteria are able to grow. These poisonous fumes are then able to move up the drain into your home - and into the lungs of everyone present.
It’ll take a lot of toxic fumes to cause serious health conditions, but minor ones can start to appear right away. Minor health problems that can be caused by a clogged drain include headaches and asthma attacks. You don’t want to be breathing in toxic fumes, so if your drain is clogged make sure to get it fixed right away.
Another serious problem that can come from a clogged drain is structural damage to your home. This sounds extreme, and in most cases it is, but it’s possible for certain types of clogs to allow water to seep out of the pipes and into the foundation of your home. This will weaken the structural integrity of your home itself and also possibly cause other pipes to leak and cause even more damage. To prevent this from happening, make sure to have your pipes inspected annually and to act swiftly if you do experience a clogged or broken drain or pipe.
