Clogged pipes are among the most common plumbing problems, and many can be simply solved with a plunger. However; if you are dealing with stubborn or continuous clogs, it may be time to contact a professional at The Pipe Shark. Our team of experts uses advanced, trenchless technology to unclog your pipes and inspect them for any further damage.
Signs Your Pipes are Clogged
Often times, diagnosing a clog is obvious. But there are some less-obvious symptoms to look out for that mean something is wrong. Some of the most common signs you have a clog include: slow drains, loud or unusual noises coming from your pipe, foul smells coming from your pipes, backed-up toilets, sewer overflow, interior or exterior flooding, and more.
Causes of Clogged Pipes
Now that you have an idea of whether or not you have a clog, you may be wondering what caused it in the first place. Clogged pipes aren’t always as simple as someone flushing something too large down the toilet.
The following are some common causes for clogs:
- Tree root invasions are one of the most serious causes of clogged pipes. This occurs when you have a leak in your pipeline that attracts surrounding vegetation to begin growing inside your pipe’s interior..
- If you skip your routine cleaning appointments, you may be experiencing a clog due to build-up in your lines..
- Not all food can be washed down the drain – no matter how great your disposal is. Food such as coffee grounds or ones rich in oil will not break down in your drain and cause clogs.
