Common Causes of Clogged Drains

Whether your drain is draining slowly or has stopped draining altogether, the causes are often the same. Sometimes grease, hair, or other debris has built up on the inside of the pipes, allowing less room for water to pass through. Other times, a single foreign object gets lodged in the drain and creates the clog.

Common causes of drain clogs include:

  • Hair
  • Oils
  • Soap scum
  • Cooking grease
  • Food particles
  • Dead leaves or grass
  • Bathroom tissue
  • Baby wipes
  • Hygiene products
  • Toys

Our plumbers at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Wilmington and Brunswick County routinely clean and unclog bathroom drains, kitchen drains, sewer drains, and garage and basement drains. If your drains are slow-flowing, emanating foul odors, making gurgling noises, or bubbling, you may have a clog forming. Call us at (910) 502-3314 and schedule a drain cleaning service.

What Is the Best Way to Clear a Clogged Drain?

Depending on the clog’s size and makeup, there are a few ways to clear a stopped-up drain. Plumbing systems can be complicated and delicate, so it’s generally best to call a trusted plumber to handle your drain cleaning in Wilmington rather than trying to do it yourself. However, if you absolutely must try unclogging it yourself first, the safest and simplest DIY method of clearing clogs is a good old fashioned plunger. This technique can be surprisingly effective on not just toilets but sinks, tubs, and showers, too. We DO NOT recommend store-bought liquid drain cleaner. These chemical concoctions are at best ineffective and at worst damaging and hazardous.

Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Wilmington and Brunswick County uses various methods to clean drains, from drain snakes and augers to our signature HydroScrub® Jetting. Our skilled team knows the best method to use for any situation.
