The bathroom is a vital piece of everyone’s day…… and daily business. 😉 If you have a clogged bathroom sink, shower or tub drain, you know this first hand! There are four main culprits that usually cause clogged bathroom drains.
- Hair: Hair is the biggest culprit for bathroom sink clogs. Wet hair can create the perfect clog when it gets clumped together and can work like a net inside of your pipe walls. As hair accumulates in your pipes, it will collect more hair and create more pressure on your pipes.
- Soap scum: Soap scum can create a chalky, film like substance that can stick to the sides of your pipes and build up over time. As soap scum builds up, it can create a clog.
- Blocked “p-trap”: A p-trap is that bending part of a drain pipe that you can find right under your sink. The P-trap connects your sink’s drain to a large pipe leading to your sewer line. There is a bend in P-traps to That bend in your P-trap can also catch other things like jewelry, hair, soap or anything that can fall down your drain leading to clogs.
- Damaged pipes: Damaged pipes can be caused by rust, corrosion, dents or a myriad of reasons. It’s important to find this as quickly as possible as damaged pipes can lead to more damage and bigger bills and bigger problems.
