Causes of Drain Clogs
The drains slowly collect debris over time. As the debris collects in the drain and hardens on the inside of the pipe, the water will begin to drain more slowly. A slow drain will gradually become completely blocked. The material that causes a clog varies, depending on the type of drain. For example, kitchen drains are often clogged by food scraps, while bathroom drains may become clogged with cosmetic products and hair.
Some of the most common causes of clogs include:
- Food scraps
- Mineral buildup inside the pipes
- Damage or corrosion
The first step in fixing a clogged drain is identifying the location and type of clog. We have the expertise and tools needed to find any clog, whether it is located just inside the drain or farther down the sewer line.
The Best Solution for Any Clog
The type of clog and where it is located will help our technicians recommend the best method of eliminating it. While minor clogs may come out with a plunger, don’t attempt to use chemical drain cleaners to clear the drain. They really won’t get rid of most types of clogs and the toxic chemicals in these products can cause damage to your pipes with repeated use.
Our Lexington drain cleaning plumbers focus on providing cost-effective solutions to meet every need. Our technicians will explain the services that are available to solve your problem and the cost of the work, so you can make the best decision for your home or business. We can help you get rid of a single clog and provide regular drain cleaning service for homes and commercial properties with frequent drain issues.
Keeping Your Drains Working
There are things you can do to prevent future drain clogs. Treating your drains with care and performing simple maintenance can make a big difference in reducing clogs in the future. Consider how your drain is used, avoid putting clogging material in the drains, and take a few easy steps to clean your drains to keep them functioning reliably.
You can prevent clogged drains by:
- Keeping food scraps out of the drain
- Never pouring oil or grease in the drain
- Not overloading the garbage disposal
- Using hair screens in the tubs and showers
- Pouring hot water down the drain a couple of times a week to clean the drain
If clogs are a recurring problem, you can schedule regular drain cleaning in Lexington to stop future clogs and keep the drains clear. We can provide drain cleaning service once a year, bi-annually, or according to a schedule that best serves your needs. Our technicians offer drain cleaning and other maintenance services to local homes and businesses with individualized service and total customer satisfaction.
