The Causes of Clogged Drains
The usual stuff that we wash down kitchen drains (along with water) is food, fat, and grease. A simple device which traps these troublesome elements is a fat/grease collector installed in the kitchen sink. But then it requires regular cleaning. Usually, after you finished washing your dishes and crockery you would not have the energy left to open up the grease collector and clean it.
A dishwasher will obviously have no such device fitted to it. Hence all the grease and fat from the dishwasher keeps accumulating in the main sewer pipe.
The common culprits in bathroom drains are hair and fatty soaps. Dental floss seems so harmless but it can also cause clogged drains.
The Perils of Clogged Drains
The clogging material in the drain pipes keeps accumulating over a long period of time. If you ignore this, you can face a number of problems:
- The area of pipe for the draining of water is reduced considerably. This results in pressure buildup. Neglecting this could seriously damage your pipes. A damaged pipe is more costly to locate and repair than a timely cleaning job.
- A clogged drain can be hazardous for health, also. Especially when you can smell a foul odor. This means there are toxic gases building up in your drain pipes.
- A clogged drain can damage your building foundation if ignored for a long time. It can lead to seepage on the walls. This affects their structural integrity.
- A clogged drain is a potential sewer emergency. You will likely wake up to a flooded bathroom or basement if you continue to ignore the issue.
Once the early warning signs of a clogged drain appear, don’t hesitate to call for professional plumbers.
