3 Common Causes of Clogged Drains

Have you been battling a slow draining sink? You could have a clog. To help keep you from having to call for emergency plumbing in Rock Hill, Fort Mill, or Lancaster, Carter Quality Plumbing wants you to watch out for these common causes of clogged drains:

  1. Grease and oil – Grease and oil are the number one cause of clogs and blockages. Make sure you properly dispose of grease and oil, especially in the kitchen.
  2. Not having a drain cover or screen – Your pipes really suffer when you don’t have any kind of cover, screen, or strainer on your drains. These screens keep food, hair, and other items from going down into the pipes. Keep these things out of your drain and you’ll avoid clogs.
  3. Tree roots – Tree roots can cause big problems for your plumbing, including clogs. When roots grow into your drain line, water isn’t able to flow out. You’ll notice that sinks, showers, and toilets drain slowly or quit working altogether. Make sure there aren’t any trees or shrubs growing near your pipes or drain line.
