Why Can Cause a Drain Clog?
There are many origins for a clogged drain and all of them can be a hassle. No matter the issue, Pristine Plumbing will take care of it for you.
Clogged Drains Are Commonly Caused By:
Kitchen Sinks – A kitchen sink can become clogged from the gradual buildup of grease, pieces of food that are too big to pass through the pipe without issue, as well as other materials such as pieces of a sponge or broken glass from a cup that slips during washing. Multiple causes can work hand in hand to create a perfect storm. Maybe food has flowed through your pipes a thousand times before, but now the grease has built up enough to obstruct its passage, or catch it as it goes by and it can dig into the grease as water forces it further into the buildup.
Bathroom Sinks – Bathroom sinks can also fall victim to grease buildup, as well as hair and soap scum. Small objects may be washed down the drain as well, and when all 3 are present you have the perfect conditions for a clogged drain.
Bathtub and Shower Drains – Dirt and hair is almost always the main cause for clogs when it comes to these kinds of drains. Certain products such as bath salts, shampoo, and soaps can also create issues depending on what is involved in the ingredients.
As time passes, a gradual buildup of all kinds of materials can restrict the flow of water through your drain pipes, creating partial or complete clogs and backups. If you notice your drain is taking longer to empty than normal, this could be an early sign of a larger clog coming in your future. Don’t wait until it’s too late and your shower is suddenly out of service until we can fix it. Schedule a time with us for a free estimate and a drain cleaning to give yourself the best chance of a stress-free shower or bath. If you’re here and the blockage has already become a substantial problem, do not fret. We have emergency service available and we will be happy to take care of it for you.
Is There Things I Can Do to Prevent Clogs?
Yes! We often recommend simple additions to your drains such as drain covers or mesh filters to catch any unwanted material or objects from reaching your pipes and causing an issue. Regularly clean these out to ensure your water flows freely and without obstruction. In the kitchen, these protect your drains from tough to flush foods and other objects that might fall in an unprotected drain. In the bathroom, the hair that can collect in your drain and create a problem is stalled by the cover so you can easily dispose of it in the bathroom trash can.
Even with drain covers, grease can still be an issue. If you or any one in your household is pouring grease or oils directly down the drain, this can greatly accelerate the accumulation of grease on the inner walls of your plumbing and create an issue sooner rather than later. Keep an old soup can around and pour the grease into that. Once it is hardened, you can scoop it into the trash, or throw the entire can away. This will greatly extend the time necessary before you need a drain cleaning due to grease buildup.
Regular professional maintenance is one of the most effective ways to ensure a healthy and reliable plumbing system. With a regular checkup from Pristine Plumbing, we can make sure that your drains and pipes flow freely all year long.
