Common Causes of Clogged Drains

A clogged drain happens more often than many might think, especially if you aren’t used to dealing with them at your home. When a clogged drain happens you will likely immediately try to remedy the situation yourself. Many people will use a plunger on their toilet and some will even try it on their sink drain. Others will snake their drains or use a shopvac. But, many clogs are too difficult to break on your own and simply need to be handled with the help of a licensed and reputable plumber. Drains are often clogged due to grease, food, hair, paper and other items.

The Use of Bar Soap

One of the biggest mistakes people make is using bar soap to wash their hands. Bar soap is made of grease, which means when it comes off your hands and goes down the sink’s drain it will eventually build up and cause a clog. Switch to soap from a dispenser to wash your hands at the bathroom and kitchen sinks.

Clumps of Hair

You might not think twice about washing loose hair down the bathroom sink drain every now and then or down the shower drain, but you really should think twice. Why? The more hair that winds up down the drain, the likelier it becomes that it will clump and turn into a clog. If you like to shave at the bathroom sink, wipe the hair away with a paper towel that can be tossed in the trash. If you shave in the shower, or a lot of hair falls out when you wash it, remove it from the floor of the shower before it goes down the drain.

Food in the Kitchen Sink

Make sure you remove any and all food remnants from your plates before putting them in the sink or rinsing them off in the sink. Even if you have a garbage disposal it’s still recommended that you put as little food down the drain as possible. Too much food, or grease from your cooking, can easily clog the kitchen sink drain.

Tree Roots

If the clog cannot be found in the pipes inside the home, you might have an issue outside the home with a tree root. Tree roots can easily break through pipes leading to your home. If this is the case, the root can clog the entire pipe and cause a big backup into your home if not rectified immediately.

Paper Products

No paper products should ever be flushed down the toilet. This includes napkins, paper towels, wipes, tampons, pads or anything else that can easily cause a clog. This is where getting a lock for the toilet lid is important if you have young children in the home.

Clogged Sinks & Drains

Should you come across a sink that is clogged in your home, you will not be able to wash your hands, wash the dishes, brush your teeth, shave or do anything else in the sink without the water running over the edges. A clogged drain in a shower or tub can also flood your bathroom.

Backed Up Toilets

No one wants to deal with a backed up toilet. It is an awful issue that every homeowner will encounter at one time or another. A backed up toilet can quickly spill water and human waste all over the bathroom floor, creating a serious health hazard for all in your home. The team from 24/7 Plumbing & Drain LLC will be able to break up the clog affecting your toilet before it spills all over the bathroom floor.

Clogged Tubs & Showers

As mentioned earlier, your tub and shower drains can also clog easily, especially if a lot of hair goes down the drain. A clog in the drain of your tub or shower will prevent you from taking a bath or shower until it is fixed by a reputable and trusted plumber.
