Reasons Why Pipes Become Clogged
There are many reasons why pipes and drains clogged that need to be handled by the experienced plumbing repair near me.
In the kitchen, oils and fats will settle and freeze when especially where there is cold temperatures, causing drains to become clogged. Some people say that you just need to pour hot water down the drain, but this doesn't help to much.
Solution: Call a Drain cleaning service. Because the grease buildup needs to be snaked in order to break up the grease. And Then maybe yes run Hot Water for 10 minutes.
Prevention: avoid throwing oil in drains. And place the food in a plastic bag a throw away.
Food buildup is the main cause of clogged kitchen sink lines. However, the drains in the bathroom may be clogged for the same reason. Some food residues such as tea and coffee grounds are so difficult to decompose that they accumulate in the drains.
And many times the kitchen sink line is also tied into a bathroom sink line.
The fix: use the services of an experienced plumber to fix this problem, and do regular cleaning. Well maybe every couple of years is also a good idea.
Prevention: avoid throwing the rest of the food in the drain. That is why garbage disposals clog up often.
Baby wipes are also one of the main reasons of clogged pipes and drains. Throwing and or paper napkins into the toilet. Baby wipes and paper napkins are two things that are very difficult to decompose and the biggest cause of clogged toilets.
Solution: clean the pipe thoroughly and perform regular cleaning. maybe every couple of years.
Prevention: Try to throw in a trash can paper napkins and baby wipes Rather than in the drain or the toilets.
Clogged drains seem to be a common problem that every home has. So, you should keep the drains from getting clogged by knowing what can cause a stoppage.
