Common Causes of Drain Clogs
Clogged drains are fairly common and have many causes. Soap, food, grease, hair, toilet paper, and other debris can build up in your pipes over time, causing water to be unable to move away from your property as it normally would. Tree roots may also infiltrate and grow into your pipes, clogging the lines and causing more backup to occur at the site of the infiltration.
Fortunately, there are some steps you can take to be proactive about preventing clogs in the first place. Make sure you aren’t putting food particles or grease down your drains and install hair traps in your bathtub or shower. Do not flush wipes, paper towels, facial tissues, or feminine hygiene products and only use flushable, plumbing-safe toilet paper. If you have a leak or crack in your pipes, repair is as soon as you can to prevent dirt, roots, and other debris from causing a blockage in the plumbing.
We also do not recommend that you use commercial drain cleaners, as these chemicals can have corrosive affects on your plumbing system. Instead, call our team for safe and effective drain cleaning and snaking services.
Telltale Signs of a Clogged Drain
How do you know if your drains are clogged? Fortunately, it is often easy to spot the signs. Look for the following:
- Slow draining or a complete lack of drainage
- Gurgling or bubbling noises from the drain or toilet
- Water backing up into your sink, tub, shower, or toilet
- Bad odors coming from your drains
- Puddles of water around hookups and connections, including washing machines, showers, and more
