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:
- 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.
