    Common Causes of Clogged Drains

    Clogged drain repair is one of the most common service calls we get here at Mr. Rooter. From kitchen sinks to shower drains, we've seen and cleaned them all. One of the reasons drain clogs are so frequent is many people don't understand what should and shouldn't go down the drain.

    Signs of a Clogged Drain

    Clogged Drain Clogged drains can be a serious issue, resulting in blocked water and flooding. Signs of a clogged drain include a   decrease in water pressure when using showers or faucets, gurgling noises from the pipes when draining sinks,   water backing up in the sink or tub, and odors coming from the drain. To keep your drains clog-free it’s important to use a strainer over the sink and avoid pouring grease or oils down them. Regular maintenance of your drains can help prevent clogs from developing and ensure that you avoid serious plumbing issues down the road.

    What Can and Can't Go Down Kitchen Sinks?

    Water Running into Kitchen Sink
    Garbage disposals aren't indestructible. A good rule of thumb for what should and shouldn't go down a garbage disposal is whether the same material can be broken down by your teeth. Garbage disposals do have "shredders," but they work very similarly to how your teeth grind down and shred food. You wouldn't be able to chew through something like produce stickers or corn husks, for example, so you shouldn't expect your garbage disposal to do the same.

    Likewise, many people will pour substances such as grease or oil down the drain, with and without the hot water running. While hot water will make something like bacon grease liquify, think about what will happen once the hot water stops running and the grease cools again. It will turn back into a thick paste, which combines with other detritus in your pipes and forms a clog.

    Other foods you should avoid pouring down the sink include coffee grounds and foods that swell in liquid, such as rice and pasta. Both of these types of substances can collect in your pipes over time, slowing the normal flow of water and eventually causing the sink to clog.

    What Can and Can't Go Down Bathroom Drains?

    Unfortunately, bathroom sinks and shower drains get clogged easily over time, Bathroom Sinkprimarily due to two substances: hair and soap. The average person sheds between 50 to 100 hairs a day. Add this collection of hair to the daily use of soap and shampoo and you have a recipe for a clog. If you don't use something like a hair trap in your bathroom drains, the hair that collects in your drains tangles with cooling and congealed substances such as soap, toothpaste, and food particles. If you've noticed your bathroom sink or shower draining slower than usual, this usually indicates the presence of a forming clog.

    What Can and Can't Be Flushed Down Toilets?

    ToiletClogged toilets are widespread, especially if your toilets or plumbing systems are older. The only things you should be flushing down the toilet are human waste products and toilet paper (in moderation). Toilet clogs often happen because someone flushes something they shouldn't, such as a child's toy, a sanitary napkin, or paper towels. While you might think it's more convenient to flush something down the toilet, err on the side of caution and throw it in the trash.

    Is Drain Cleaner Dangerous?

    Typically, chemical drain cleaners are caustic for a purpose. Their acidity allows them to break down organic matter that might be causing your clog. However, they can be dangerous to you, members of your household, and your plumbing. Part of what makes drain cleaner so effective also makes it dangerous. Drain cleaner poisoning is a real thing that can cause damage to people and pets alike.

    Additionally, continual use of the substance in your pipes can corrode your plumbing, causing you other, more expensive issues you must deal with in the future. If you can’t clear your clog through normal means, such as by using a drain snake or hanger, consider calling our NJ drain cleaners at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of South Jersey. We’re available 24/7 for any emergency drain cleaner situation you might have.

    How We Can Help

    Sometimes, DIY drain cleaning doesn't always go well. We recommend avoiding caustic substances to clear your drain since they can often damage your pipes while they melt through whatever might be causing your clog. Likewise, caustic drain cleaners can also crack your toilet, which can cause even more costly repairs.

    Our team of plumbers in South Jersey , offers professional drain cleaning services using the clog before we use HydroScrub jetting technology to clean out your drains thoroughly.
