Addressing Slow or Clogged Drains
Aside from the fact that a clogged drain is inconvenient, it can eventually lead to water damage or other problems. Some common reasons for slow or clogged drains include:
- If you've ever cleaned out the hair collected in a hairbrush, you have seen why hair is such a big culprit for backed up drains. This is especially true if you get a mixture of hair bound with grease or soap.
- Grease is a big problem in the kitchen. Grease should never be poured down a drain but even cautious homeowners may find out just enough grease has still been making its way into your pipes and causing big problems.
- It's common to find slow drains in homes with hard water. As if having this type of water isn't punishment enough, the mineral buildup that results without a water softener can cause serious issues with how your water flows down the drain.
Keep in mind, don't make the mistake of using harsh chemicals to attempt to DIY this type of plumbing issue, you'll end up doing more harm than good and can seriously damage your system.
