Common Causes of Clogged Drains
Clogged drains usually develop over time due to grease, oils, food debris and other materials clinging to the pipe wall and leading to narrowing of the pipe. Common reasons for drain clogs include:
- Fat, Grease, and Oil that stick to the pipe walls, expanding over time until the drain is complete clogged. Never dispose of these substances in your sinks, allow them to cool and store in plastic containers. Once you place them in a plastic container, dispose of them in your trash or take them to a recycling center.
- Besides grease, another common cause of a clogged kitchen drain is the improper use of a garbage disposal.
- Hair and soap scum are common reasons for slow drainage in showers, tub and bathroom sink drains. The use of drain screens will help prevent hair from clogging the drain, and it will also catch food in the kitchen sink.
- Knowing the difference between a clogged drain and clogged sewer pipe depends on how many drains are involved. When all drains are clogged or experiencing slow drainage, the problem is typically going to be in the sewer line. On the other hand, when the problem is limited to a single drain, the problem is most likely isolated in the drain for that sink.
