Clogged Drains

Some common causes of clogged drains

Drains can be clogged due to a number of reasons. Some of which are:

  1. Dirt

Washing muddy shoes, especially in sinks, leads to clogs in the pipes. Always scrape off all the mud from your shoes before washing them. Do not pour muddy water down the drains.

  1. Hair

This is yet another common reason for clogged drains. You can avoid hair from clogging your drains by having drain guards.

  1. Food waste

These are simply the food left on the plates after eating. You should always empty your plates in a trash can, no matter how tiny the scraps are. Tea leaves,  coffee grounds and grease should never be washed down the drain.

  1. Soap

This comes as a surprise to many, but there are some soaps that are made of grease and fat. When these come into contact with minerals in the water, they form a hard residue which is called scum. This, causes clogs.

  1. Mineral buildup

When minerals build up in your pipes, they cause clogs. The mineral build up is usually prevented by having a water softener installed in your home. Once established, they can be very difficult to get rid of.

  1. Toilet paper build up

The buildup of toilet paper in the pipes causes blockages. A simple plunging down of the toilet can easy unclog it.

  1. Tiny objects

Objects like broken glass and small toys should not be flushed down the drain.  Drains that are clogged can cause costly repairs, backups, and flooding.

When clogs are ignored or treated as minor issues they can become big problems very fast. These clogs can start as a minor issue but they quickly escalate into major problems. Clogged drains cause corrosion, flooding, slow water drainage, sewer backup, and costly repairs.

  1. Roots of trees

When your underground pipes are leaking, they attract the roots of trees that are near them. These roots gather inside the pipes, obstruct the flow of water, and can damage the pipes.

How to Prevent Clogs

Many clogs are caused by wrong choices they can be easily prevented. Here are some tips that can help prevent clogs:

  1. Buying and making use of drain covers.

Place drain cover in your shower areas to prevent hair from washing down the drain. Darin covers can be purchased from hardware or plumbing stores.

  1. Do not pour oil and grease down the drain

These should be disposed of in the right places.

  1. Rinse drains daily

You can prevent clogs by rinsing out your drains with hot water, vinegar, and baking soda. This will help to flush down some debris and grease if they find their way in the pipes.

  1. Avoid chemicals

When cleaning or rinsing down your drain try to avoid using chemicals and only use the natural method. This will also save you some money.

  1. Be aware of what you flush

Treat your toilet well. Do not turn it into a trash can.

  1. Always check on what you dump in your kitchen sinks

Make sure whatever you put in your sink has no food scraps. Throw food scraps in the bins and rid plates off grease before washing them.
