Clogged? Say goodbye to plumbing nightmares

There’s nothing worse than a backed up toilet or drain. Clogs aren’t just a hassle, they’re potential safety hazards that can result in standing sewer water and rotting food stuck in your garbage disposal, while the increased water pressure from clogs can cause damage to your plumbing system and home. If you have a toilet you’ve had to plunge a bit too much lately or notice your sink draining slowly it may be time to call the professionals at PLUMB24 as your home likely requires a professional drain cleaning.

Professional Drain Cleaning is the fastest and most effective way to fix your clogged pipes without causing more damage to your home or property. Over the counter drain cleaners are often filled with harsh chemicals that can corrode and potentially break your pipes and aren’t recommended for older homes or long standing drainage issues.

Common Causes of Clogs

Here are some causes to look out for that may mean you need a
professional plumber to diagnose your clogging issue. 

Hair

Buildup of hair, which combines easily with soap, scum, and grease, is a common cause of drainage blockages. To prevent hair buildup in your drains you can buy catch guards and clean them regularly.

Food

Even if you own a garbage disposal, it is recommended that you throw away or compost as much food waste as possible. The garbage disposal is only meant to catch smaller particles that make it down the sink unintentionally and is often misused. Be careful to properly dispose of food, oils, and grease before cleaning your pots and pans.

Minerals

Hard water is a common cause of clogged pipes, as the minerals it contains can form insoluble masses that require augering to remove. Installing a water softening system is a good way to decrease mineral build up within your plumbing system.

Roots

Root growth often requires serious work to repair the damage it causes to your plumbing system. Roots are naturally attracted to water sources and once they’ve infiltrated the tiniest crack they will continue to grow rapidly. Try to plan your landscape effectively to avoid root growth in your pipes as much as possible.

Toilet Paper

That’s right, good old fashioned toilet paper is one of the most common causes of drain blockage in your plumbing system. Make sure you’re buying the proper toilet paper for your plumbing system and avoid overuse of toilet paper. Never flush wipes, feminine products, or hygiene products down your drain to ensure it keeps running properly.
