Causes of Clogged Drains

The only surefire way to prevent clogged is simply to never use them. Of course, while this way of preventing clogged drains is effective, it is also impossible to achieve. Although that fix is impossible, knowing the most common causes of clogged drains can help prevent them in the future.

Bathroom drains

Most bathroom drains clogs are a result of dirt, skin flakes and especially hair binding to soap scum on the drain pipes. Over time, this potent mixture of gunk gets so large that it constricts the water’s flow.

Removing the drain stopper and cleaning it regularly can prevent hair and other unseemly, constricting debris from clogging the drain moving forward.

Clogged toilets

Is there nothing worse than trying to flush a toilet and noticing that there is no movement? By in large, clogged toilets are the result of residents trying to flush items that do no dissolve or break down in water like:

  • Tampons
  • Cotton swabs
  • Dental floss
  • Pre-moistened diaper wipes
  • Condoms

Waste and paper are the only things you should be flushing down your toilet if you don’t want to deal with clogs in the future.

Kitchen sinks

When cooking, oil and grease stick to drain pipe walls with soap scum and undissolved food particles, and water gets stuck sitting in the sink.

In the future, you should never get rid of grease and oil by dumping them down the drain. Instead, wait for it to solidify and then scrape it into the garbage.

Even if you follow this advice to a tee, your drains can still get clogged. If you are doing everything right and are constantly plagued with clogged or slow drains, the only thing you can do is call DSL Mechanical. When you do, we’ll arrange for an inspection. It could be that the drain line was not properly designed or installed. Whatever the issue, we can apply our years of experience to assess and diagnose the problem so that you no longer have to fret over clogs and blockages in your piping anymore.
