Causes of Clogged Drains
There are many potential causes of drain clogs. While the most common clogs are caused by hair, food, soap and foreign objects, they all need to be treated differently to assure efficient removal. The most difficult drain clog is a foreign object, which can get caught in the piping and prevent water flow. It’s difficult to unclog because most chemical treatments and gels won’t help. For items that are loose or close to the surface, a snake tool with likely help. In other instances, it’s time to call your favorite plumbers.
Over time, kitchen sinks and drains will clog and run slower than you were once accustomed to. This issue is due to kitchen grease, soaps, detergents, and other fatty build ups that will accumulate on the inner walls of your pipes. If these build ups are not treated regularly, they will cause a blockage than could become a major issue.
Showers, tubs, and sinks in bathrooms all have the potential to get clogged. Rather it be from hair, soap, toothpaste buildup, or other dirt and grime, there will come a time when your bathroom drains need to be serviced. Additionally, toilets can also get clogged past the point of self-repair.
Another drain that you may have an issue with in your home is the floor drain in your basement, garage, patio, or laundry room. Because these floor drains are equipped with specific features to prevent sewer gas odors, they are not common or as easy to fix without the aid of a professional. In addition, because of the amount of dirt and debris that passes through these drains, they are very susceptible to blockage, which can lead to a huge mess for you.
