Clogged Drain? Call McGill! (727) 382-3849

Common Causes of Clogged Drains

Over time, drains can suffer from a buildup of sludge that narrows the space through which wastewater can pass. Sometimes this problem is avoidable with a little drain maintenance and knowledge of what can and cannot go down a drain (looking at you, "flushable" wipes!) Other times, drain problems arise from circumstances outside of our control, such as tree root intrusion into old, aging pipes. Regardless of the cause, drain issues are best left to professionals who can solve the problem at its source instead of bottles of chemical drain cleaners that only treat the symptoms.

Drain clogs can be caused by any of the following common culprits:

  • Hair
  • Soap scum
  • Congealed cooking oil / grease
  • Tree roots
  • Trash
  • Excessive amounts of toilet paper
  • Food particles
  • Damaged sewer line

5 Tips to Prevent Clogged Sewer Lines

  • Proper Grease Disposal: Refrain from pouring cooking grease or oil down your drains. Collect it in a container and throw it in the trash instead.
  • Install Drain Screens: Use drain screens or strainers in sinks, showers, and bathtubs to catch hair, food particles, and other debris.
  • Flush Only Toilet Paper: Only flush toilet paper and human waste. Avoid flushing items like wipes, sanitary products, or paper towels to prevent blockages.
  • Regular Drain Maintenance: Clean your drains regularly using hot water, baking soda, and vinegar to break down buildup and keep clogs at bay.
  • Mindful Landscaping: Plant trees and shrubs away from sewer lines to avoid root infiltration. If you must plant near sewer lines, consider using root barriers.

Get a Like-New Clean with Hydro Jetting

When traditional drain cleaning isn't the right solution, hydro jetting is an option that can provide great results. Hydro jetting involves the use of specialized equipment that sends jets of highly-pressurized water through your sewer lines, blasting away sludge, debris, tree roots, and mineral buildup. The result is clean, well-functioning pipes without the expense of replacing the line. If you're dealing with frequent drain clogs or are interested in adding hydro jetting to your preventive drain maintenance routine, give us a call now to see if this sewer cleaning method is right for your property.
