Why Are My Drains Slow?
Your drains could be slow for a number of reasons, from leaks to clogs, to general wear and tear. If you want your drains to flow free, however, the most important thing to do is to avoid putting anything down them that could cause a problem. Keep in mind that the only thing that you’re supposed to flush in your toilet is toilet paper.
Meanwhile, in the kitchen, many assume it’s okay to put almost any type of food in the garbage disposal, but this is simply not true. It’s natural for a certain amount of dirt and grime to accumulate in your drains over time. Between food particles, hair, soap scum, and general grime, there are many reasons to get your drains cleaned. However, you can save a lot of money on repairs by just watching out for the everyday health of your drain lines.
Top causes of drain line clogs include:
- Food Waste
- Feminine hygiene products and cotton balls
- Too much toilet paper
- Tree roots
- Oils, fats, and grease
- “Flushable” wipes and diapers
- Mineral build-up
For the average drain line clog, you may assume that it’s fine to use a store-bought drain cleaner. However, this is not necessarily a good idea. Most over-the-counter drain cleaners contain a lot of nasty chemicals, that may actually eat away at your pipes over time. Moreover, these products also aren’t very effective, oftentimes only getting rid of part of a clog, or even worse, sitting on top of an existing clog. This can create a very bad situation, especially if a back-up occurs and those toxic chemicals come spitting out. For long-lasting, affordable drain care, contact our Long Beach Island drain cleaners. We know how to get the job done while still protecting your plumbing system.
