Our experienced contractors can provide a permanent fix to your clogged drain issues.
Why Do My Drains Get Clogged?
Clogs are caused when materials are forced down the drain that simply don’t belong there. This can be food waste, hair, soap scum, grease, and other debris. Your bathroom and kitchen drains are at the highest risk of clogs because of their consistent use. Some of the most common reasons include:
Many homeowners believe that a garbage disposal can handle anything, which simply isn't true. There are many food items that shouldn't be put in a disposal. Starchy vegetables like potatoes, as well as pasta, coffee grounds, fats, and oils, can all create a clog.
In the shower, we naturally shed hair while shampooing. Many people also shave in the shower, leaving all that hair to naturally go down the drain. Over time, this hair can clump and catch other soap scum and debris, blocking the drain.
Our toilet systems are designed to handle waste, paper, and not much else. It is important to be mindful of what can and can’t be flushed. Most feminine hygiene products and baby wipes can’t be flushed.
Sometimes mother nature and our home plumbing system encounter one another. Tree roots can spread over time as a tree grows, seeking rich soil to ensure a long and healthy life. This sometimes means that a root encounters your plumbing. This can lead to clogs that require professional removal.
Signs Your Drain Is Clogged
The drains of your home shouldn’t have any backed-up water, regardless of how long you let the water run from faucets. Pools of water around the drain and slow draining, in general, are all signs of a serious clog building deep within your plumbing system. You may also notice your toilet water bubbling when the sink is used. Other signs include gurgles in your drain when running your dishwasher or washing machine. In your kitchen, if you notice unsavory smells coming from your drain, this can be a warning sign that you have food waste stuck in the system.
