What Are the Common Causes of Clogged Drains?

There are many reasons why a drain might become clogged. Some of it is within the power of the homeowner to prevent, but there are some circumstances that are outside of our direct control. It's important to keep this information in mind so that you're more aware of what can safely enter your drain lines and what you should be careful with.

Homeowners commonly have to call us for drain cleaning due to:

  • Cooking grease and oil. These substances can congeal and solidify inside drain lines, so it's important to make sure they end up in the trash instead of your sink.
  • Hair. You might be surprised how much hair the average person sheds while bathing. Hair is one of the top reasons why shower, tub, and bathroom sink drains need to be cleaned.
  • Foreign objects. Toilet backups often occur when non-flushable items are disposed of in the toilet. Improper use of garbage disposal is another common culprit. When in doubt, throw refuse in the garbage rather than letting it enter your drain lines.
  • Sewer line issues. Sometimes, recurring drainage problems arise because of problems with a broken or damaged sewer line. This is often the result of age, corrosion, shifting soil, or even tree root intrusion. There's not much you can do to prevent this, but if this is the case, you'll need to have the affected area of the pipe repaired or replaced to get things back to normal.

How to Prevent Clogged Drains

While our plumbers can expertly take care of your drain issue, there are a few things you can do at home to prevent clogs:

  • Dispose of cooking grease and coffee grounds in the trash, not a drain.
  • Use a filter or screen to keep chunks of waste out of the drain. Most home hardware stores carry inexpensive grates to fit any drain fixture.
  • Running hot water through a drain after use will prevent oils and wastes from building up in the drain.
  • Occasionally pour about 1 cup of vinegar down a drain, let it sit for 30 minutes, and then run hot water through the drain. The acid in the vinegar will act as an organic solvent to remove sludge in the drain.

What Are Signs You Need Drain Maintenance Services?

Clogged drains can cause significant inconvenience and frustration for homeowners. However, many people wait until their drains are completely blocked before seeking professional help. 

Here are some signs that indicate you may need drain maintenance services:

  • Slow-draining sinks, showers, or tubs
  • Gurgling or bubbling sounds coming from your drains
  • Unpleasant odors emanating from your drains
  • Water backing up from your drains

If you notice any of these signs, it's essential to contact our Pueblo plumbing experts immediately. Our drain maintenance services can help prevent costly blockages and keep your plumbing system running smoothly.

Commonly Asked Questions

Can I use chemical drain cleaners to clear my clogged drain?

While it may be tempting to use chemical drain cleaners as a quick fix, we do not recommend it. These chemicals can be harsh and may damage your pipes over time. It's best to call a professional plumber to properly clear your clogged drain.

How often should I have my drains cleaned?

The frequency of drain cleaning depends on several factors, including the age of your pipes, the amount of use they get, and the types of materials that go down them. As a general rule, we recommend having your drains cleaned at least once a year to prevent clogs and ensure proper drainage.

What should I do if my toilet is clogged?

If your toilet is clogged, do not try to flush it again. This can cause the bowl to overflow and make the problem worse. Instead, turn off the water supply valve behind the toilet and call a professional plumber to clear the clog.

Can tree roots cause drain clogs?

Yes, tree roots can cause drain clogs if they grow into your sewer line. If you have trees or shrubs near your sewer line, it's important to have them inspected regularly by a professional plumber to prevent root intrusion.
