Common Causes of Clogged Drains

Clogged drains are one of the most common types of plumbing issues, though they can quickly escalate into major problems if they are not addressed promptly. From slow water drainage to corrosion, flooding, or even sewage backup, a clogged drain can lead to a myriad of problems and costly repairs. Fortunately, many drain clogs can be prevented by recognizing their causes.

Most common household drain clogs are caused by:

  • Hair
  • Soap
  • Food waste
  • Tree roots
  • Small objects
  • Toilet paper
  • Cooking grease

How to Prevent Drain Clogs

Homeowners face many challenges in the upkeep of the home and clogged drains present one of the largest nuisances. Most of us like easy and quick solutions, so it can be tempting to run to the store and purchase special drain unclogging solutions. These have been known to cause more problems for drains in the long run. They may wear out the inner surface of the pipes and over time, lead to leaks and other wear and tear.

Here are some to help prevent clogs:

  • Even if you have a garbage disposal, many of us resist tossing trash such as orange peels, banana peels, egg shells, potato skins, and coffee grounds.
  • Run cold water while the garbage disposal runs, so that the waste has a chance to run fully through the system.
  • Avoid pouring oil or grease down the drain, as this can solidify and get stuck to the pipes.
  • Consider purchasing screens to catch food, hair, and other wastes.
  • You should never flush large amounts of paper down the toilet, particularly feminine products as they can clog the toilet and even the entire sewer system.
  • Make it a regular habit to clear out the drains of hair and other particles that may have built up in the pipes.
  • Schedule an appointment with a licensed plumber to periodically clean out the drains from the root. We can snake the main line to get to the source, saving you on costly repairs later on.
