Ways Drains Get Clogged

Most property owners have encountered a clogged drain at least once. These make an excellent breeding environment for mold and bacteria, and pose massive health and environmental hazards to you and your family. Understanding how drains become blocked is crucial to minimize recurring clogs. 

At Plumbing Professionals, we provide unmatched drain cleaning in Mountain Brook, AL. Below are the primary causes of clogged drains.

1. Soap

Soap comprises lots of grease. Thus, soap residue develops a thin layer of scum down your sewer system. Over time, the accumulated soap creates a serious blockage that requires immediate solutions. Homeowners should consider liquid detergents and scheduling regular drain cleaning with their local plumber in Mountain Brook, AL to prevent clogged drains.

  2. Toilet Paper

Flushing down a reasonable amount of toilet paper is absolutely fine. However, clogging occurs when you flush other items such as feminine hygiene products, wipes and other trash down the drain. These build up in your pipes over time, resulting in a clogged drain.

3. Food Waste

Wrong food disposal could lead to massive recurring clogging in your drainage system. When washed down the kitchen drains, food scraps solidify within the drainage pipes. These remains gradually develop into a thick sludge in the interior surface of your plumbing system. Avoid throwing away food waste down your drains to prevent clogs. Additionally, install a drain strainer to collect the food scraps. Frequent drain snaking is vital to ensure your piping system remains clean and clog-free.

4. Foreign Items

Disposing of small items through the sink or bathtub drains damages your pipes. It will help if you provide trash cans in your kitchen and bathroom to encourage family members to dispose of their garbage in the proper place.

Couldn’t be happier with the service received from Plumbing Professionals. Price was lower than others had quoted and service was second to none.
