Common Types of Costly Clogs and How to Avoid Them

There is nothing worse than discovering one of your drains has become clogged, especially in the bathroom. This can completely throw your morning routine out of whack and prevent you from getting ready for work in the way you are accustomed to. However, clogged drains are not limited to just the bathroom and can happen anywhere inside of the house.

The most frequent culprit for clogging up your bathroom sink is hair. Whether it is the whiskers shaved in the morning or hair being washed in the shower, all of that excess hair can add up to some serious drain blockage. Cleaning out your pipes regularly each week can prevent the hair from building up and protect the drain from clogs.

Kitchen clogs are a beast of their own, which is why homeowners needs to be careful with what they are putting down the sink. Even if you have a garbage disposal, breaking up food is necessary to prevent an obstruction. Never put grease down the drain under any circumstances, as it will harden in the pipes and be very difficult to remove on your own.

When it comes to outdoor sewage lines and unexplained blockages, chances are it is the result of tree roots infiltrating your system. This can quickly do major damage to your plumbing, so you will need to call in a professional right away if you suspect this to be the case. Septic systems and pipes are not equipped to handle this kind of blockage, which is why they are such a serious problem for homeowners.

If you are having problems with your plumbing system, you will want to have a professional deal with it as soon as possible. To make an appointment with Mark Tango Plumbing today, contact us online or over the phone at (781) 944-8043.
