What are the Common Causes of Clogged Drains?
Unfortunately, clogged drains are one of the most common indoor plumbing problems. Over time, accumulated hair, soap scum, and dirt can lead to reduced water flow and clogs.
No matter the cause, a clogged drain can be a real headache for homeowners. While it may be possible to effectively address some clogs with the use of a plunger or DIY drain-snaking, severe clogs will likely require the assistance of a trained professional. Additionally, if you begin to notice repeated or reoccurring clogs, you may have a problem with your main water or sewer line.
How Can I Prevent Drain Clogs?
Thankfully, drain clogs are fairly easy to avoid by making a few key changes. Using less toilet paper and refraining from flushing any non-waste or toilet paper items can limit toilet clogs. Using a hair trap in the shower can help you avoid shower or tub drain clogs that often result from hair, soap scum, and other product buildup and ensuring that your garbage disposal is only used for approved food items can reduce the number of kitchen sink drain clogs you experience.
Of course, drain clogs aren’t entirely avoidable. When they do occur, turn to the highly-trained plumbers at Excel Plumbing for outstanding drain cleaning services. With fully-equipped vehicles, we’re ready to assist you NOW!
