Slow draining sink? We know that this common home plumbing problem can be frustrating. However, knowing what causes drain clogs can help you prevent them in the future.
What is clogging your drains?
- Cooking Grease – What did you do with the leftover grease from your last dinner? Although grease may look like a liquid when it’s warm, it turns into a solid as it cools. When the grease cools in your drain, it will stick to the sides of your pipes and keep the water from flowing smoothly.
- No Strainer – Your kitchen and bathroom sinks, and your shower drain should have a strainer to help catch food particles, hair and other items from getting stuck in your drains.
- Tree Roots – Do you have deep rooted trees around your home? If you have a plumbing pipe with a leak, these tree roots can get into your plumbing system and keep your pipes from draining properly.
