Ways Drains Get Clogged

drain cleaning services

Clogged drains are among the leading plumbing issues in most buildings. When you’re facing a clogged drain, immediate repair and maintenance are necessary. Ignoring blocked drains poses lots of health risks to you and your entire household. At A.M Plumbing & Rooter, we offer exemplary drain cleaning services for your plumbing system.

Here are the main ways you can end up with a clogged drain:

Tree Roots

Thirsty tree roots tend to grow towards water sources, including the plumbing network. Small leaks within the pipes further aggravate the damage arising from tree root invasion. Tree root infiltration in the piping network requires professional assistance. Excavation is the most common method of preventing root infiltration. Additionally, it’s advisable that you plant shallow-rooted trees on your lawn. Consult our local drain cleaning company to protect your drains from root invasion.

Small Objects

Children are highly likely to dispose of foreign things through the drains. Pebbles, toys, tree branches, and leaves clog the drainage system. It will help if you avoid disposing of such items through the drains. Installing mesh drain covers is also crucial to prevent these objects from going down the drainage system.

Improper Food Disposal

Throwing away food scraps through the drains is also harmful. Oils and grease in the food harden upon subjection to colder temperatures. The gradual buildup of food waste eventually leads to a clogged drainage system. Consider investing in drain strainers to prevent food remains from collecting in the sewer lines. Drain snaking is also crucial to correct blocking in the drainage system.

Water Hardness

Hard water contains minerals that gradually clog the pipes. Minerals with the highest concentration in hard water include calcium and magnesium. Accumulation of limescale narrows the piping system, hindering water drainage. Drain cleaning in Lake Elsinore, CA, can involve expert descaling to get rid of limescale. It will also help if you purchase a water softener for your home.
