Understand the Way Drains and Drain Cleaning Works
Before you can understand why your drain is clogged, you need to think more about the way modern drainage systems work. Drains are installed in all modern buildings, allowing water and waste to be taken out of the home and deposited into the nearest sewer system.
Drains actually work with gravity. Water and waste are channeled downward, and natural forces drive them out of your home. However, drains are also equipped with air vents and traps to make the process safer and more efficient.
The air vent is at the top of your drainage system. It connects your drains to the air outside. The drain must be connected to this exterior air in order to prevent a vacuum from forming. Without a vent, drains would clog or backup far more often.
Traps are another integral part of your drains. Traps are installed below all your drains in your sinks, toilets and more. Typically, a trap is a u-shaped pipe. This prevents a reverse flow of air. By minimizing the reverse flow of air, bad odors are kept from backing up into the house. These traps can also serve as a collection point for hair, dirt and grease. This helps minimize costly and problematic blockages farther down in your pipes.
Possible Reasons for Clogged Drains
With some background on how drains work, it is easier to understand why drains get clogged from time to time. It is important to find out the cause of your blockage before you can properly address the issue.
First, many everyday clogs come from organic matter or solid waste buildup. Think about the way you use your drains. In your kitchen, you are rinsing off plates and pans. While you may try to keep food from getting down the drain, it is usually impossible to catch everything. As food goes down the drain, it can get caught and start to accumulate. In the bathroom, this commonly happens with hair. In some cases, items that do not belong in pipes like towels end up down the drain and cause serious problems.
In the kitchen, cooking grease is another issue. Cooking grease can cling to your drains, and it will accumulate over time. This can lead to a slowing of your drains, and it can eventually cause blockages. These blockages are especially difficult to remove. This is why it is recommended to never dump your extra grease down the drain. However, grease accumulation can happen in any kitchen.
Another problem that can affect the flow of your drains is infiltration by tree roots. Drains take water from inside your home and down into the sewer system. This means a portion of your drainage system is outside in your yard. Here, the drains are susceptible to outside elements. Most commonly, this involves tree roots. As trees grow, their roots expand in unexpected ways. This can include in your pipes. These blockages can cause significant damage and prompt the need for significant repair.
Finally, the integrity of the drains themselves can lead to blockages. If your drains are older or in poor repair, they can become rusted or broken. These problems can lead to both leaks and blockages. Either problem must be addressed promptly in order to prevent property damage and ensure smooth functionality.
The Power of Professional Drain Cleaning
When household drains start to slow down, many people take a do-it-yourself approach. However, novice attempts to clean a drain are often ineffective and harmful.
Before you turn to plungers or store-bought chemicals, think about the consequences. Plungers are only marginally effective, and they can simply push problematic clogs farther down the drain. Chemicals are even more dangerous for your drains. These chemicals are often extremely abrasive. They can actually damage the pipes themselves. Moreover, both plungers and chemicals have a limited range. If your clog is deep, then your plunging and chemical cleaners may simply not be powerful enough to make an impact.
This is why clogs should be handled by professionals. Professional technicians know the best methods to safely and effectively clean your drains. This ensures that your clogs will be addressed without causing any harm to your pipes.
