Drain blockages are not something to be taken lightly and should never be ignored, as this can lead to potentially costly and time consuming drainage problems in the future. There are a few key signs that can give you an indication that you may have a blocked or damaged drain:

This can also cause the gurgling sound we mentioned above, so if the two are happening together, you should seek professional help to unblock your drains.
