Our licensed plumbers are your local plumbers who can take care of all your clogged drain needs. Whether it is kitchen drain cleaning, basement drain cleaning or bathroom drain cleaning, we can take care of it all.

Causes of Clogged Drains

Drains can clog because of different items blocking drain pipes. Some items which may cause drain clog are as follows:

  • Hair -- Hair is a big factor in causing drain blockage. Hair can bind with soap, dirt and other household items which go down a drain pipe.
  • Soap -- Soap bars are actually made of grease or fat. When it goes down drain pipes, it leaves a hard residue, referred to as soap scum, which clogs pipes.
  • Dirt - Dirt from clothing or from our bodies, when washed, goes down drain pipes and binds with soap.
  • Food waste - Food waste should not be allowed to go down drain pipes. It is even a good idea not to let food waste go down garbage disposal. Coffee grounds or tea leaves do not break down and overtime may cause drains to clog in kitchen.
  • Mineral buildup - Hard water contains minerals which can cause buildup over time.
  • Toilet paper - Toilet paper can sometimes clog up toilet drain.
  • Tree roots - Tree roots can grow into small leaks or cracks in underground pipes. Once inside a pipe, tree roots can clog pipes.

Drain issues may be due to different reasons in different areas of your house. Some of the reasons for clogged drains are as follows:

Bathroom Drain Cleaning

Bathroom drain clogs are caused due to dirt, hair, etc. to which soap scum binds and attaches to the walls of drain pipes. Over time, this reduces the flow of water through pipes and your drain starts flowing slow or even getting fully clogged.

Clogged Toilets

Toilets clog mainly due to flushing items that do not dissolve or break apart. Some of the commonly items flushed down the toilets (and should not be flushed) are:

  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Dental floss
  • Cotton swabs (Q-tips)
  • Diaper wipes

In case of clogged toilets, you should first try a plunger to troubleshoot the issue. However, if that does not work, please call us to take care of your clogged toilet drain.

Kitchen Sink Clogged Drains

Kitchen sink drains clog due to cooking oil or grease depositing on pipes. Over time, disposal of grease and oil starts to solidify, thereby clogging kitchen sink drains.
