The Main Causes for Arlington Heights Drain Cleaning
There are certainly many ways your drains can clog, but the plumbers at Precision often run into the 4 following causes the most:
- Cooking Grease: Once cooking grease goes down your drains, it will begin to harden, making your drains practically impassable. Grease can slow passage of other materials in your drains to the point where your drains are clogged beyond belief.
- Larger Food Items: Whole fruits and vegetables are a no-go when it comes to drains, especially if you don’t have a garbage disposal that can chop them up. If you do find yourself in a situation where food goes down the drains, make sure it’s small enough that it can secure an easy passage way through your pipes without becoming stuck.
- Sanitary Items: Got a clogged toilet? Then it may be the result of sanitary items of going down the drains. Items like ear cleaners, tissues, and other items should be discarded in the garbage instead of flushing them down the toilet. Physical objects of any sort can lead to big troubles
- Soap Buildup: The somewhat thick consistency of dish soap can prove harmful to your drains and buildup until you experience a clog. Dish soap passes through your drains too slowly and while it can clean your dishes, it’s best to keep it away from your drains.
