What Causes Clogged Drains?

Clogged drains can damage your home and severely slow down your everyday routine. Simply hoping that the water eventually drains out of your bathtub won’t fix the issue, but calling Mr. Rooter’s® professional plumbers will! We can assess what is causing your clogged drains and capably resolve the problem, at an upfront, flat-rate price.

Common Causes of Clogged Drains

Over time, there are a number of common factors that can contribute a need for drain cleaning. Soap by itself is not a problem, but soap combined with hair can become an issue. Another common problem is quilted toilet paper, which doesn't break apart as easily as non-quilted brands. Believe it or not, clumped cat litter can also become a major source of clogging if flushed down the toilet. Starchy vegetables, oils, fats, grease, and hair can also be common items that lead to unwanted drain clogs.

How Do I Know If I Need Drain Cleaning Services?

Some clogs are easily remedied. In some cases you can simply remove the item that is clogging the drain and go on with the rest of your day. However, many drains need professional cleaning in order to regain their usability.

Check out common signs that mean your drain needs cleaning:

  • Drains that are slow to empty after normal usage
  • Garbage disposals don’t eliminate effectively
  • Problems with normal toilet flushing

If this is the case, experts recommend trying a bio drain cleaning solution as a preventive measure, such as BiochoiceES® drain cleaning solution; this works for organic clogs, but if you have foreign objects or hair in your drains you may require additional drain-cleaning service to fix the problem.
