Clogged drains may seem like a simple issue at first, but if left untreated they can cause devastation to the home and everyone inside. Besides poor drainage and drain backup, clogged drains can cause bacteria-infested water, bad odors, and even more severe; leaking pipes. Not treating leaking pipes right away can lead to water damage and become the direct reason for needing home renovation. To treat issues stemming from clogged pipes, contact About Plumbing.
Preventing a clogged drain is actually pretty easy. It all begins with watching what goes down the drain. Hair, soap scum, coffee grounds, and grease are all common culprits of drain clogs. Prevent this issue by putting all grease or coffee grounds in the trash or in a coffee can — somewhere other than down the drain. Also, avoid any hair or soap scum from building up, by catching it before it goes down. Drain catcher’s keep hair and soap scum from traveling down the drain and helping to prevent future clogs.
