ACCUMULATION OF DEBRIS
Stuff like hair, bits of soap, food, and grease can build up inside the pipes over time and block the flow of water.
FAT, OIL AND GREASE
When we pour cooking oil, fat, or grease down the drain, it can harden and stick to the pipes. This makes it easier for other things to get caught and cause a clog.
FLUSHING NON-GLUSHABLE ITEMS
Flushing things down the toilet that shouldn’t be flushed, like wipes, sanitary products, cotton balls, or dental floss, can lead to clogged drains. These things don’t break down easily and can block both toilets and sewer pipes.
WHAT ARE THE SIGNS OF A CLOG?
If water takes a long time to go down the drain or if it starts to pool around the sink or shower, it might mean there’s a clog in the drain.
If you notice a bad smell coming from a drain, it could mean there’s a clog. The clog can trap food or other stuff, and it starts to stink over time.
If you see water pooling around the drain and it doesn’t go away, it’s a sign that there’s a clog stopping the water from draining properly.
If you experience any of the symptoms mentioned earlier, it’s a clear indication that there’s an issue with your drains. Contact us today to improve your plumbing system performance.
