Why are my Drains Clogged?
It shouldn’t be a surprise that most drain clogs come down to a physical blockage. Blockages range from residue and sludge build-ups, to larger objects like diapers and feminine hygiene products, and even tree roots.
When things like cooking oil, hair, food, or other items build up inside your drain lines, they eventually turn into stoppages that either completely backup or slow down your home’s draining process. At this point, most homeowners turn to over-the-counter drain cleaners advertised in their local retail stores for a solution, not knowing that they might inadvertently be making heir problem even worse.
In reality, knowing the cause of your clogged drains can be a big help when it comes to clearing it. For example, drain clogs caused by fats can be broken up with a solvent before we resort to physical pressure, thereby putting less pressure on your drain pipes and minimizing your drain failure risk.
