When you’re going about your busy day, the last thing you need is to run across a clogged drain. The good news is you may be able to troubleshoot the clog yourself without too much trouble. Consider what might have caused the drain to clog in the first place. Then, follow our expert tips to unclog it.
Bathtub and shower drains usually clog as a result of hair and soap scum buildup. The drain may be slow at first, which is when you should take action. If you wait until the water pools around your ankles without draining at all, removing the blockage could be much more difficult.
Most bathroom sinks become clogged when too much foreign debris accumulates in the pipes. Dirt, dust, skin flakes, soap scum, gobs of toothpaste, and especially hair are common culprits. You can prevent future clogs by putting a mesh strainer over the drain and doing your best to keep hair out of the sink.
A clogged toilet is nasty business. Blockages commonly occur when too much toilet paper is used in conjunction with solid human waste. You also run the risk of a clog if you flush anything other than toilet paper or waste, such as cotton swabs, feminine hygiene products, and baby wipes.
This hardworking drain can become clogged with cooking grease and un-dissolved food particles, such as rice and noodles that expand in water. The result is a stubborn, goopy clog.
Sometimes, even your best efforts aren’t enough to unclog a stubborn drain.
