What Causes a Residential Sewer Drain to Clog?
One of the most prominent and common issues that can affect your home’s sewer system is a sewer line clog. All sorts of things can end up down the drains of your home that never should have been washed away in the first place. Too much abuse from little items over time can result in a severe clogging problem deep in the pipes.
Three common culprits behind sewer line clogs are:
- Nondegradable waste: The toilets and sinks throughout your home can seem like a super convenient way to get rid of all types of trash, but it is essential to remember that they are not trashcans. Do not put anything that cannot be dissolved readily in water into your toilet or down the sink. Even commonplace napkins can be durable enough to form a clog.
- Cooking grease: When you are done cooking anything that produces grease, like bacon in the skillet each morning, avoiding putting the grease down the sink at all costs. Cooking grease and oils will clog your sewer line before you know it. Instead, pour the grease into a tin can that you can throw away in a trashcan once it cools.
- Large quantities of food waste: When you use your garbage disposal, place food waste into it slowly and gradually. Do not clump large amounts of food in your garbage disposal at once. The garbage disposal may be able to push the food waste down the pipe, but it can still develop into a clog when it hits the sewer line later on.
