Top Causes of a Clogged Drain Conroe TX

A blocked drain a common, yet frustrating, household issue that most of us have faced at some time or another. Clogged drains can be disruptive, expensive and time consuming to take care of. This is why it is important to use preventative measures to guard your home’s plumbing. As you can probably already assume, the best way to avoid having a pesky clogged drain on your hands, is knowing what the main causes of a clogged drain are.


-Hair: We have all seen when someone pulls out a big dark mass, of wet hair. Hair clogs can extend for several inches, in some cases even feet. This is because hair is especially susceptible to clogging drains and will continuously build up, adding to the mass until the drain is completely clogged and must be addressed. To avoid this, you can purchase a hair trap to set in the bottom of your shower. These were designed to catch the hair that comes out in the shower and protect your drain.


-Greasy Food: Whenever grease is hot or fresh, it has more of a liquid property than solid. However, as grease cools and settles, it congeals and becomes thicker. It is also highly sticky, causing it to collect to the sides of pipes narrowing their pathways and building up. The best way to avoid this is disposing of grease in glass containers instead of down your drains.


-Foreign Objects: Often times, clogged drains come from small objects whether they be toys, hair clips, toiletries, grass, or some other out of place item.This is normally an accident, so prevention can be difficult. Try to limit the items that come around your sinks, showers, and other drains to avoid facing this issue.
