Causes of Clogged Drains

Kitchens

Kitchen drains are highly susceptible to clogging due to the substances commonly disposed of in sinks. Fats, oils, and grease from cooking can solidify in the pipes, along with food particles that aren’t completely washed away. As time passes, these accumulations build up and impede the flow of water. While some homeowners believe that a garbage disposal will prevent clogged drains, there are still materials that should not be disposed of in the sink, such as stringy vegetables and potato peels. It’s important to be aware of what should never be put down your drain, even if you have a garbage disposal. Some examples of materials to avoid include:

  • Cooking grease, oil, or fat
  • Eggshells
  • Coffee grounds
  • Hard foods (i.e. fruit pits, nuts, & seeds)
  • Pasta, oats, & rice
  • Onion skins or potato peels

If you’re not sure what can or cannot go down your drain, it’s better to be safe than sorry – simply throw out any questionable items before washing your dishes in the sink.

Bathrooms

Proper maintenance of your bathroom drains involves understanding the specific requirements of each drain. Shower and bathtub drains are prone to clogs caused by hair and soap scum accumulation, as they are designed to handle water only. While the occasional use of bath bombs is generally acceptable, it’s crucial to avoid those containing solid materials like flower petals or herbs, as they can cause blockages in the pipes. By being mindful of what you introduce into your shower and bathtub drains, you can help ensure proper water flow and prevent frustrating clogs.

To prevent clogs in your plumbing system, it is crucial not to flush tissues and other paper products down the toilet. While they may appear to dissolve initially, they can accumulate and cause blockages over time. The same caution applies to products labeled as “flushable.” Despite the label’s claim, these items can still lead to obstructions in your pipes. When in doubt, it is recommended to dispose of such items in the trash rather than flushing them.
