What’s Causing Your Clogged Drains?

For a clogged drain repair to last, our plumbers need to know why they are getting blocked in the first place. Once we have determined the cause of your clogged drains, we can determine the best course of action to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

Some of the things we’ll be on the lookout for include:

Old pipes

Did you know that older pipes are more prone to clogging and blockages? Usually, it is because, over time, the interior surface of the pipe can become corroded, creating more opportunity for debris to cling and collect, restricting water’s flow. If need be, we can install new pipes to make sure you’re not dealing with clogs for years to come.

Hard water

Naturally occurring minerals in hard water, think calcium, can coat the inner walls of your home’s pipes that reduce the diameter and create edges and pits that trap debris. Adding a water softening system can help prevent this from being an issue in the future.

Natural bacteria deficiency

Not all bacteria are bad. Certain types are not only good for your body but your home’s plumbing as well. They can be of great use to your home’s plumbing because they feed on organic residue stuck in your pipes, reducing the chance of organic obstructions. However, the ubiquity of antibacterial soaps and gels and the reduction of natural bacteria in our food can inadvertently mean there is less opportunity for bacteria to naturally break down the material left behind in your pipes.

Grooming products

The number of personal care products we use on a daily basis has grown exponentially in modern times. And while they may help to make you look or smell good, the fact is that anything thicker than water can contribute to a clog. If possible, use these products sparingly because disposing of excess products down the drain might be contributing to the clog.

Regardless of why your drains continue to get clogged, we have the training, tools and parts to make sure it doesn’t keep happening. For clog relief that lasts, contact DSL Mechanical today.
