What clogs the drains?
Water isn’t the only thing that goes down most of the drains. When it comes to the kitchen sink, there is also grease and small particles of food that most often lead to blockages. In the bathroom, there are other culprits that most commonly lead to drain clogs in the sink and the shower. Debris builds up and lines the drains over time, obstructing and sometimes even blocking the pathway for waste water. This can make it seem like it was just one piece of food or a clump of hair that brought your entire plumbing system down, when in fact it was the result of months or years of bad or no maintenance that was responsible for it. It’s always a good idea to have regular drain cleaning services and checkups, so that you can avoid these issues in the future.

Misconceptions about Drain Cleaning
It might be because drains are not that easy to see, or people usually know so little about them that causes a lot of misconceptions. Here are a few common misconceptions about drain cleaning that not all are aware of.
- Not all microbes present in the drain are bad
A lot of people believe that all micro-organisms present in the drain are bad and they should get rid of them at all costs. This is simply not the case as there a lot of them that are good for your drain, and that’s why you shouldn’t get rid of them all.
- Not all clogs are caused by hairballs
A lot of customers exclaim and have a problem with being billed a lot for a simple “removal of a hairball.” What they don’t realize is that if the cause of all clogs was this single problem, plumbing companies would go out of business simply because this is something almost anyone can fix on their own. The truth is that you can get clogged drains from many other things that can get stuck in there, and not just hair as it may seem to you at first glance.
- Not all chemicals are suitable for all drains
Drains are made from all kinds of different materials so it’s very important that you establish what type of material the drain’s made from and then decide on a chemical that won’t react with the pipes in the drain in a bad way.
You need to have all of these points in mind if you want to keep your drains clean and your plumbing functional and working properly.
