Clogged Drains WhittierOf all the issues that residential home owners face when it comes to their in-house plumbing, clogged drains tops the list. While clogged drains are a common problem, they can become costly nuisance if not properly dealt with or prevented. Clogged drains can annoyingly disrupt the daily tasks, chores, and lifestyle of everyday homeowners and possibly severely damage plumbing systems if left unchecked and unclean. This will lead to a more intensive and expensive process when it comes to clearing out those severely gunked up spots. One Way Rooter’s team of plumbers know just what to when your drains clog up and how to keep them from clogging up in the future.
What Causes a Clog?Drain clogs come from a number of factors. While we all hope that only water goes down our faucet, toilet, and bathtub drains, usually what ends flows down along with the water gets stuck in the sides of the pipes, resulting in a buildup over time. This buildup can be made of hair, food, dirt, sand, grease, soap, toilet paper, and various other foreign objects; if it can fit down the drain, the chances are that it’s somehow in there.
