Agape Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing Lists the Most Common Causes of Clogs to Your Drains & Toilets

Bathroom or Kitchen Sink Slow or Not Draining: No one wants to go wash their hands or brush their teeth with a sink that just won’t drain. The water slowing filling up is not a great thing and at some point you have to stop the water to allow the standing water to slowly drain. The better option is to find out why it is happening and what you can do to clear it out. When it comes to a sink in your bathroom there are some common causes of a clog. The main problem is that the soap that you are using will start to stick to the sides of the walls of the pipes. The soap will stay sticky and then when skin, hair and other debris goes down the drain it will attach to the soap as well. This can lead to the pipe closing off more and more and that will stop the water from flowing freely. You can use a sink plunger to try and remove the clog. If the clog is too tough to remove in this way you may need to call a plumber.
Toilet Clogs Every Time I Flush: A clogged toilet is a scary situation because it can have water that is full of bacteria that has the option to spill over the edge. When this occurs the toilet might continue to fill up thinking that the bowl is not full yet. This is why a clogged toilet spills over. The other problem that you have is trying to find out what has caused the clog in the first place. One of the most common causes of a sewer line clogged to your toilet is from flushing feminine hygiene products. Most people know that sanitary napkins are not okay to flush but tampons are on the list too. They can also cause a clog when they attach to the pipes and expand blocking the drain. Other common causes are Q-Tips, toys and baby wipes. You want to prevent people that live in and visit your home from flushing these types of items. If the clog is too much for your plunger to break down you may need to call out a plumber.
