How Do Drains Get Clogged?

When a stoppage occurs in a drain, it can cause many issues. Clogged drains can happen anywhere throughout your home, from your kitchen sink, to your toilet, even to your sewer! Sometimes, these clogs can cause a huge mess due to flooding. Minor clogs caused by hairballs, food in the kitchen sink or feminine products down the toilet are common, but can still cause a hassle. More severe drain clogs can be caused by corroded pipes or even damage from a tree root growing into the pipes. There are a few signs you can look for. Water cannot flow freely through pipes when there is a clog. If you notice that a drain is low or even making noises, it probably isn’t draining properly.
