Why Is My Drain Clogged?
There is a wide range of reasons that your household drains may become clogged. People like to wash all sorts of different things down their drains that have no business being in there, and many end up causing troublesome clogs. Some of the most common clogged drain causes include hair, cooking grease, hygiene products, food particles, soap residue, small toys, and even tree roots. Sometimes, tree roots will end up growing inside your underground pipes as they search for water and end up causing a serious drain clog.
Risks of Recurring Drain Problems
When water won’t flow down your sinks or showers it can be annoying, but there are more severe risks associated with having a clogged drain. In some cases, the obstruction could cause the pipe to split, which may lead to water damage and expensive cleanup. Foul odors are another risk of clogged drains, and when there is excess moisture around, the risk of mold growth is always a factor.
Tips for Preventing a Clogged Drain
Calling Patriot Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Inc. for timely drain cleaning services is the best way to deal with clogged drains, but you can also prevent them from happening in most cases. Many clogs are formed from years of sludge buildup, so make sure to only wash things down your drains that won’t cause a problem. As an example, that cooking grease may be in liquid form when it’s warm, but once it cools it will solidify and clog your drain.
