A clogged or slow drain can immediately put a halt on your home activities. Drain clogging can be a real nuisance, and can be especially embarrassing if the drains happen to clog up as you are entertaining guests. Various kinds of drain pipe cleaners are available in the market and should be there in the homes for emergency situations. Please note that some off-the-shelf drain cleaning products can damage pipes and should only be used for very “light-duty” drain cleaning situations.
Drain clogs or stoppages, occur in all types of drains for a number of different reasons. There is no foolproof way to prevent a stoppage from happening but there are a variety of ways to clear them up. The most common drain clogs in Arizona are from hair in sink, tub or shower drains along with feminine products in the toilet. Kitchen sink drains usually get clogged with food debris. Some more serious clogs occur when drain pipes corrode, collapse or get damaged by tree roots. In these cases, a seemingly small drain clog could end up requiring excavation and repair of underground pipes.
Stoppage occurs when something is blocking the drain and preventing the wastewater from flowing freely. Usually, this is not complete blockage of the drain but enough to cause a backup. It’s one thing when the clog causes standing water in your sink, shower or tub… but the situation can get really bad when sewage starts to back up 🙁
