Blocked drains can interrupt your schedule, especially if it is in the kitchen, bathroom or toilet. We have listed a few substances that cause drain blockages. You can prevent clogged drains by taking care of these little details.
- Fatty substances and grease
Grease and fat are one of the most common causes of blocked drains but you can easily prevent them. Fatty and greasy substances mostly come from kitchen residue. When you throw them down the drain, they will stick to the walls of the pipe, solidify, and form a mortar that is difficult to remove. Remove the greasy and fatty substances from the plates or utensils and throw them in the trash. You can regularly use mild homemade drain cleaner or super hot water to prevent blocked kitchen drains or sinks.
- Hair and soap scum
Soap scum and hair get washed down your shower every single day. A few other tiny substances or imperfections can add to this combination and stick to the drain wall. They will accumulate over time and result in a blocked shower drain.
- Foreign objects
Most common foreign objects that block drains are sanitary items, nappies, and soap. If you have young kids at home, there are high chances of toys and other substances being thrown down the toilet. It will cause build-ups and eventually result in a blocked toilet. You can use toilet block cleaners from time to time and prevent this from happening.
- Garden debris and leaves
If you have trees in your backyard or through the sewage lines, then you are most likely to experience clogged drains regularly. Falling leaves that wash down the drain can create build-ups that lead to drainage blocks.
- Tree roots
Roots of trees can crack your pipe and get into the drainage system in search of moisture. They are one of the toughest to deal with. You will have to use a blocked drain cleaner that has the chemicals necessary to kill tree roots. Flushing the chemicals is one way to prevent the growth of the pipe.
- Poor workmanship
The quality of your drainage system has a greater impact on blocked drains. If your pipes or drains have been installed by amateur workmen, then they will be prone to damage that can lead to drain blockage.
- Toilet paper, toilet wipes and wet wipes
The flush cannot magically take away all the toilet paper that you have flushed down over the years. Avoid buying super thick toilet paper that is hard to break down. Only use the necessary amount of toilet paper that can get down the drain with a single flush. Toilet wipes and wet wipes are usually labelled as flushable materials, but they do not easily break down.
- Broken pipes
Damaged pipes will create an uneven surface and eventually the household waste will catch on to it, blocking the entire pipe. Be mindful when you are undertaking earthworks, gardening or landscaping on your property. You should get broken or damaged pipes fixed immediately by a professional.
