Common Debris That Clog Your Pipes

Common Debris That Clog Your Pipes

When the pipes in your home clog, it’s a problem that can be difficult to solve. There are many reasons why your pipes may clog. You should hire a professional to resolve the issue. Here is a list of some of the most common items that clog plumbing to watch out for:

Hair

Hair is one of the most common causes of clogs. Hair is stringy and can easily get tangled up in your pipes, causing blockages that are difficult to resolve. You can prevent clogs by making sure you remove all of the hair from your shower drain every time you shampoo, and by using a hairbrush before baths and showers.

Hair can be really tricky. If you have long hair and your drains tend to get blocked often, try using a strainer to catch your hair before it goes down the drain. This is especially helpful for those who have long, thick hair!

Grease 

Grease is another common cause of clogs. Whether you cook bacon or fry vegetables, grease can end up going down your drain and causing blockages that are difficult to resolve.

Make sure you pour grease in a can or jar and throw it away, rather than allowing it to go down your drain. This will take care of the problem and ensure that your drains remain clog-free.

Feminine Products

Tampons and other feminine products can easily get stuck in your pipes. To prevent this, make sure you throw them in a trash can and not down your drain. These items are not made to break down in water and can cause serious clogs if they get stuck.
