Common Types of Clogs

Depending on what sort of drain is blocked—kitchen sink, bathroom sink, tub, or floor drain—you could be dealing with one of several different types of clogs, or even a combination.

Several Common Causes Of Drain Clogs In The Home Include:

  • Fats, oils, and grease—often abbreviated as FOG
  • Hair and soap residue in shower drains
  • Food and cooking debris in kitchen sinks
  • Lint buildup in a washer drain hose
  • Tree roots in underground pipes

Keeping Your Drains Clean

There are a variety of at-home methods for cleaning drains. Some of them work for a little while. Others are ineffective at best and may even be harmful in the long term.

While a commercial chemical drain cleaner can clear small blockages or a slow drain, it’s possible for them to leave behind a residue that contributes to future clogs. Or worse, depending on your system and the type of piping material used, these chemical drain cleaners can corrode pipes or impair your septic system. If you’ve had plumbing problems in the past, or aren’t sure what kind of pipe you have, it’s better not to risk it.

Steps You Can Take To Prevent Clogged Drains Include:

  • Don’t intentionally wash hair down a sink or shower drain. Instead, throw the hair away.
  • Never pour cooking grease down a drain.
  • Scrape cooled cooking grease into the trash before washing pans.
  • Regularly check your tub and sink stoppers for gunk and debris, and clean out any visible buildup at the top of the drain.
  • Use a lint trap on your washing machine’s drain hose and check the hose regularly for blockages.

As with many things in life, preventing problems is the best way to keep your drain system working better longer.
