COMMON TYPES OF CLOGS
A toilet clog is one of the worst drain clogs you can have in a home because of the foul smell it will leave not only in the bathroom but the rest of the home. Human waste can wind up being dispersed all over the floor of your bathroom and even leak to the floor below before you catch that there is a problem, especially if it happens at night.
It will be nearly impossible to use any of the sinks in your home should you have a clog anywhere in the plumbing system of your home. A clog can affect your entire plumbing system, which means it will be hard to wash the dishes, wash your hands, and more. All of this will depend on how the plumbing is laid out in the home.
CLOGS IN SHOWERS & TUBS
The ability to bathe or take a shower disappears when you have a clog that affects your shower or tub. You might not even realize there is a clog until the tub fails to drain or the shower floor looks more like you’re taking a bath. When you are in the shower the water should drain constantly. If this is not happening you should call a plumber from 24/7 Plumbing & Drain LLC as soon as possible.

CLOGGED DRAINS & THEIR CAUSES
Dealing with a clogged drain can be very difficult, especially if you cannot pinpoint where the clog is located within the pipes. The most common way a homeowner discovers a clog is when it is too late and the sink backs up onto the counter or the toilet backs up onto the floor. For example, when you remove the bathroom sink stopper after shaving and the water does not recede, you have a clog somewhere in the line. The same goes for when you take a bath and the tub fails to drain. There are plenty of reasons why you could be dealing with a clogged drain and this section will review them in detail.
Understanding the greatest contributors to clogged drains is a great way to take precautionary measures to prevent back ups in the future. Below is a list of some of the most common causes of clogged drains and how to avoid them.

HAIR, HAIR, & MORE HAIR
Hair is most often the biggest culprit of a clogged drain, especially in a bathroom sink or shower. If you shave regularly, your hair can quickly build up in the drain and cause a clog. Women who wash their hair everyday in the shower might see a couple strands hit the floor every now and then. Given enough time, if you allow those strands go down the drain they will eventually block up the drain and the shower will begin to drain more & more slowly over time. Clean all drain stoppers weekly. If you develop a clog you need to contact a plumber to schedule a drain cleaning service call.
Believe it or not, bar soap that is used frequently at a bathroom sink can lead to a clogged drain. Why? Bar soap is made with grease, which is never good for your drains. Stop using bar soap to wash your hands immediately and go with soap from a dispenser. There is less grease in soap from a dispenser.
It is quite possible that your drain is clogged because of a tree root that has burst through the pipe somewhere along the line outside your home. This is a common occurrence, especially if you have a lot of trees on your property. This will be an extensive repair project to undertake, which is why you should always use a licensed plumber from 24/7 Plumbing & Drain LLC.
LEFTOVER FOOD WASTE
The less food particles you put in the sink, the less likely it is that you will develop a clog in your kitchen sink drain. Food remnants should never go down the drain, even the smallest bits of food, unless you have a garbage disposal. Even then you should refrain from putting a lot of food down the drain and instead put it in the trash. Food can easily cause clogs, especially foods that are greasy.
TOYS, PAPER PRODUCTS, & WIPES
All three of these categories should never wind up down the drain or in the toilet. This can be difficult to police if there are children in your family. Wipes, napkins, paper towels, tampons and other paper products should never be flushed down the toilet. Put a lock on the toilet lid so your children cannot flush toys or other objects, which can lead to a severe clog.
