What causes clogged drains?
Clogged drains are one of the most common problems associated with indoor plumbing. Over time, hair, soap scum, and dirt can build up which leads to blockage and clogs that prohibit the flow of water.
Other common causes of clogged drains:
- Cooking oil or grease accumulated in kitchen sinks
- Washing foreign objects down sink or shower drains
- Flushing non-waste items down the toilet
- Overuse of toilet paper
- Using a non-water-soluble shower or bath product
However drains are clogged, they can be a nuisance for homeowners. Although most drains can be unclogged with a plumber or a drain snake, more severe clogs will need a trained professional. If reoccurring clogs start to occur more frequently, this may be a sign of a more serious problem with your main sewer or water line.
How to prevent clogged drains
Usually, drain clogs can be avoided by making a few simple changes. Refraining from using an unnecessary amount of toilet paper and not flushing non-waste items can help to limit toilet clogs. A hair trap can also help avoid clogs in showers and tubs by preventing the buildup of hair, soap scum, and other products.
