Toilet Clogs! What Causes Them?
Typically, toilet clogs are caused by blockages within the drains caused by a buildup of items such as:
- Excess hair
- Food waste
- Toilet tissue
- Baby wipes
- Sanitary products
Bends in the pipes also increase the likelihood of clogs as debris can be snagged by the corners. As a general tip, you should only be throwing toilet paper into your toilet. Be sure to keep a garbage can near the toilet and set some rules with your family to keep clogs at bay.
How is Clogged Toilet Repair Done?
While many homeowners may opt for DIY repairs using chemical cleaners and plungers, in some cases you may be making the issue worse. If, for example, the clog is large, a plunger will only push it deeper into the pipes. Store-bought chemicals aren’t much better, sometimes causing smaller corrosive leaks in older plumbing.
At G.F. Bowman, Inc., we use the latest techniques and tools to remove even the toughest clog. Not only do we effectively remove the entire blockage, but also we inspect your plumbing afterward to ensure a long-term solution.
