Let’s face it- we all seem to panic a little once we experience a clogged drain. Whether it’s your toilet or sink, it can get really messy and take up too much of your personal time. There are various reasons why a drain gets clogged, so if yours happens to clog frequently, it may be due to more than what you’re putting down the drain. While a clogged drain may seem like a DIY project for some homeowners, it’s important to recognize how professional services can help ensure safe and reliable plumbing fixes. Trust G.F.

What Causes Drain Clogs?
Chances are we all have an idea of things that go down the toilet and drains in our home. It’s dirty work but could be the leading cause of your constant clogging issues. Some of the most common culprits for clogged drains include:
- Excess hair
- Cooking grease
- Non-flushable like baby wipes and floss
- Cat litter
- Coffee grounds
- Food items
- Miscellaneous objects
While it might seem like your drains can handle just about anything, just because it flushes or goes into your plumbing, doesn’t mean its run its course through your pipes. Eventually, these items all build up inside your plumbing system, leaving you dealing with severe blockages.
Why Drain Cleaning is Not a DIY Project to Take On
Although doing projects on your own may be fun, this is one that you’ll want to immediately rule out and call an expert to take care of. Using the latest tools and methods, like snaking and water jetting, we can break down even the toughest sewer cleaning and pipe clogs. More often than not, your smaller clog is caused by a much larger issue deeper in your plumbing, hence the need for an expert plumber.
When the clogged pipe seems to be a slope problem caused by poor installation of your plumbing, you’ll need to hire a professional to help resolve that issue as well. Sometimes it can be something as simple as replacing a section of plumbing, but an inspection will be needed first.
If clogs are constantly a problem in your home, a repiping service could be the long term solution you’ve been looking for.
