What Can Cause Clogged Drains?
The best way to prevent a blocked drain is to know what causes these issues in the first place. Some common household items that can block your drains include:
- Large food scraps
- Cooking grease
- Excess hair in the tub or shower
- Sanitary products or q-tips in the toilet
- Cat litter
- Kids toys
- Dirt or yard clippings (for outdoor drains)
Because your kitchen and bathrooms are likely the most susceptible areas of your home, getting drain covers and strainers is always a good idea. These mesh coverings trap debris before they make their way into your plumbing and can help prevent slow drainage.
Additionally, work with your family to make a plan for your home. Be sure everyone knows what can and cannot go down the drain, and before long, you will enjoy a more efficient and clog-free plumbing system.
How a Professional Plumber Can Prevent Drain Clogs
For many Twin Cities homeowners, chemical drain cleaning is the best way to fix issues. However, these chemicals can also cause problems - mainly pipe damage for older homes. Instead, opt for professional drain cleaning services.
At HomePro Plumbing, we use the latest technology and plumbing repair methods to get to the root of your drain blockage. Professional drain cleaning can resolve the problem at hand as well as help prevent these issues from occurring in the future:
- Slow drainage
- Multiple clogs
- Foul odors or residue
- Overflowing fixtures
- Gurgling noises
Not only are clogged drains a nuisance, especially if they’re hampering your ability to use your plumbing, but also they can become a health concern. If wastewater isn’t exiting your home, it can leave harmful residue in your sinks and tubs, and put your family at risk.
Poor water quality can also be a cause for blockages in your plumbing. Be sure to ask about our water softener services and prevent hard water scale issues.
