Causes of Drain Clogs
Sink, shower, bathtub, and toilet drains are under constant use. Slowly, debris can begin to build up inside a drain. This gradual debris buildup will cause the drain to move more slowly over time. A slow drain will eventually become completely clogged if the problem is not addressed.
Common causes of drain problems vary, depending on the type of drain:
- Kitchen sinks: Grease, oil, food particles, overloaded garbage disposals
- Bathroom sinks: Hair, soap, cosmetics, residue from beauty products
- Tub and shower drains: Hair, soap scum, bathing products
- Toilets: Excessive use of toilet paper or flushing non-flushable items, such as feminine products, paper towels, and other objects
Understanding the source of the clog can help eliminate the clog and prevent future problems with your drains. We take the time to locate the source of the problem and provide the best solution for that type of clog. Regardless of the type of clog, it is always best to address problems early before they continue to get worse. Without proper attention, the clog will grow and may eventually cause damage to the drain.
The Right Treatment for Every Clog
Our service trucks are fully stocked with the tools and equipment needed to provide effective drain cleaning in Benicia for any type of blockage. We use a wide variety of methods, including drain snakes and hydro jetting equipment, to provide the best method for clearing any type of clog. For example, a snake may be great for clearing hair, but won’t provide a lasting solution for grease or other soft clogs.
Hydro jetting equipment uses highly pressurized water to blast through clogs. In addition to removing the clog, hydro jetting completely cleans the inside of the pipe. If you have problems with recurring clogs in a specific drain, you may not be treating the problem effectively. Hydro jetting cleans out the entire pipe and removes all debris, which can keep the clog from coming back.
Preventing Future Clogs
When a drain clog happens, you want to get rid of the problem and keep it from coming back. You can take steps to prevent future clogs in sinks, tubs, showers, and other drains in your home. Because clogs originate from the buildup of debris, future drain problems can be minimized by keeping debris out of the drains.
You can minimize buildup in your drains if you:
- Avoid overloading the garbage disposal
- Keep oil and grease out of the kitchen sink
- Use mesh strainers in tubs and showers to stop hair from collecting in the drain
- Do not flush non-flushable wipes, feminine products, or anything else down the toilet
- Always run the water when using the garbage disposal
Another thing you can do to prevent future clogs is to have regular drain cleaning service performed by a professional plumber. This is especially helpful for drains that are heavily used and prone to clogging. For example, shower drains may become frequently clogged in a house full of women with long hair. Kitchen sink drains may become clogged often when the garbage disposal is heavily used, and care isn’t taken about the amount of food put into the drain. We can recommend additional tips for keeping your drains clear.
