What are common causes of clogged drains?
Food waste is the top cause of drain clogs in most instances. Years of grease build-up and “old” food particles are the main reasons for drain clogs. We usually don't realize that without proper attention and maintenance to the kitchen drain, a “simple” clog can result from years of grease building up. If a clog is neglected, the accumulated grease can easily harden and cause a serious backup. A clog can also be caused by a foreign object: a piece of cracker or an olive pit can cause a clog of any kitchen or bathroom sink drain.
- Grease clogs pipes and grease is difficult to get rid of. Therefore, you should avoid pouring fats or oils down the sink because they will accumulate on the walls inside the drain and may cause clogs.
- You host a variety of guests who weren't aware that your drainage system was backed up and resulted in an unpleasant experience
- Water sits in your bathtub or sink for a long time before draining down the drain – if it even drains at all.
- Baby wipes and feminine hygiene products are garbage. These items belong in the trash, not your toilet. When they go down the toilet, they cause a clog, which leads to expensive plumbing repair bills. Failing to separate these products and other solutions can cause the plumbing in your home to back up and end up flooding everything in your home with sewage.
What is involved in your sewer and drain service?
Drain cleaning is a process where a drain is cleared of hair, soap scum and other debris. There are different types of drain cleaners available, depending on the material the drain is made of. The most commonly used drain cleaner is hot water, baking soda, and vinegar. Drain cleaning involves blasting through grime, sludge, and blockages that prevent your drains from flowing freely. Sewer cleaning involves the use of mechanical devices and chemical solutions to get the inside of sewer pipes clean and free of debris and waste.
Q: Can’t I simply plunge until the blockage is cleared?
A: You can certainly attempt plunging on your own, however, not all plunging efforts are successful. After about 10 full minutes of plunging, rest for a minute or two and try another 5-10 minutes of plunging. If you’re unable to clear the drain, then it might make sense to think about hiring a drain cleaning company.
Q: Are OTC drain cleaners efficient?
A: On the contrary, over-the-counter drain cleaners can be toxic and corrosive, just what you don’t want to pour down your drain. For occasional light drain cleaning or freshening of your kitchen and bathroom drains, you can pour a quarter cup of baking soda and a half cup of white vinegar into the drain, wait a full minute, and then turn on the hot tap water for about 30 seconds.
