What Causes Recurring Clog Issues?

Dealing with recurring clog issues can be extremely frustrating. A clogged drain is a minor issue that can ultimately escalate into a major problem. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Phoenix, trusted experts in drain cleaning in Phoenix, AZ, can provide you with the tips you need to prevent and resolve your clogging issues.

Excessive Toilet Tissue Use

Oftentimes, a clogged drain is the result of excessive toilet paper use. To prevent clogging issues from occurring, it’s important to not overuse toilet paper. If you currently use 2-ply toilet tissue, switching to 1-ply can resolve your clogging issues.

Flushing Non-Flushable Material

Flushing non-flushable material like facial tissue, cotton balls, and any feminine hygiene products can also cause your drain to clog. Non-flushable items are not able to dissolve like toilet tissue, and instead, builds up to form a blockage. If a product states it is flushable and is not toilet paper, it is not flushable. Place trash cans in your bathroom and educate your family on proper waste disposal to avoid getting clogged toilets. Clogged pipes are a serious issue that requires the services of a reputable drain cleaning company.

Hair

Another culprit that can cause recurring clog issues is hair. In order to prevent hair from getting into the drain, consider investing in drain screens or guards to catch hair before it can go down the drain. Cleaning hair brushes over the trash can rather than the sink can also prevent your drain from getting clogged. Wiping hands after using any hair products rather than washing it off is best way to keep hair from going down your drains.

Use A Professional Drain Cleaner

While chemical drain cleaners may seem like an easy solution to clogs, they can actually harm your pipes. They heat the clog and when it cools, it solidifies the clogs and leads to a more long term clog. Consider calling a professional for drain cleaning/ drain snaking or hydro jetting instead. These methods are gentle enough to not damage your pipe interior but will get rid of the clog effectively.
