Drain Cleaning Deer Park, TX
Why do you clean the sinks in your home? It’s to keep the drains clear of any debris, correct? Debris can easily slip down the drain of your kitchen or bathroom sink no matter how often you clean the home. How? For starters, having kids in the home makes it more likely for items to find their way down the drain. Sinks are used multiple times per day throughout the week. They are used for shaving, brushing your teeth, cutting your hair, trimming your nails, washing your hands, cleaning a washcloth and much more. All of these activities can wind up leading to items going down the drain and eventually causing a clog.

Common Causes of Clogged Drains
Most homeowners will experience clogged drains often in their lifetime. These problems crop up quite often and can very well be difficult to notice. Why are they so difficult to notice? Most clogs aren’t discovered until it is too late, when the sink is overflowing or when your tub backs up all over your bathroom floor. There’s no easy way to find a clog before it’s too late. The best way to prevent a clog is to routinely clean your sinks and avoid debris from winding up in the drain. There are a wide range of ways a drain can become clogged, including too much hair, an obscure item, a break in the pipe and paper.

Hair Builds Up into a Clump
It’s not out of the ordinary to have hair build up into a ball or clump in the drain of your bathroom sink or the drain of your shower or bathtub. Hair, as much as you try to avoid it, can wind up down the drain easily. Hair from shaving a goatee or beard can easily clog a bathroom sink over a period. The same goes for hair cleaned off a hairbrush from a woman or out of a comb from a man. You need to prevent hair from going down the drain as much as possible to keep the water flowing.
Using Bar Soap
Bar soap is never a good idea for washing your hands. Why? Bar soap is very greasy. In fact, it’s made with grease. Grease is a bad material to have go down the drain of any sink in your home. If you currently use bar soap to wash your hands or face it’s best to replace it with soap in a bottle. The same goes for using soap in the shower or bathtub.
Food Down the Kitchen Sink Drain
Food should never go down the kitchen sink drain, unless you have a garbage disposal. Even then, you should limit the food that goes down the garbage disposal. Be on the lookout for food debris when washing the dishes in the sink. Try to scrape off as much food debris from your plates as possible so it doesn’t make it down the kitchen sink drain. The more food debris that winds up down the drain, the more likely it is that you will experience a clogged kitchen sink drain. If you see food in the sink clean it out with a napkin or paper towel before it gets into the drain. If not, you will need to clean out the s-pipe underneath the sink or snake the drain.
If you kitchen sink backs up frequently it’s probably time to schedule a clogged drain cleaning service with one of our Deer Park plumbing technicians.
Tree roots are a common problem when it comes to clogged drains and one of the more difficult issues to diagnose unless a plumber visits your home. You could spend hours snaking a drain, emptying an s-pipe and trying other home remedies and still be dealing with a clogged drain. The ultimate cause in a situation such as this would be a tree root that has broken through the pipes. When a tree root invades a pipe it easily causes a clog because of its size. Nothing will be able to move past it, even water, if the root is wide enough to block the pipe entirely.
Wipes, Paper Products, and Toys
All three of these items should never be flushed down the toilet or put down the kitchen or bathroom sink. Wipes, paper products, and toys can easily cause a clog that will lead to a backup of water and bodily fluids all over your house. This most often occurs in homes with children. That’s why a lock should be installed on the toilet seat so children cannot flush items down the toilet when unattended. These items are more likely to wind up down the toilet than any other drain in the home.
