What Causes a Clogged Drain in Brooklyn?

Serious clogged drains in Brooklyn may be caused by one of a few things:

Foreign objects are one of the most common problems, especially in toilets. From toys to excessive toilet paper, toilet drain clogs may need more help than just a plunger.

Kitchen sinks are often vulnerable to clogs, with food and grease being the major culprits. If fats are poured down the sink, they congeal and trap other food.

Tree roots can create serious drain clogs by wrapping around pipes. Their crushing strength stops the water flow, forcing plumbers to discover and repair the issue.

If you’re experiencing clogs and you don’t know why, get your Brooklyn drains cleaned before the problem leads to further damage and even more repairs.

Drain Cleaning Prevents Drain Clogs

Drain clogs can often be avoided. Here are a few things you can do to prevent them and avoid calling for professional drain cleaning in Brooklyn, NY:

Place drain strainers on all drains. These catch hair, food and other debris before it gets stuck. Although they don’t catch everything, they can help the system significantly.

Keep young children away from toilets to avoid foreign objects being flushed down the drain

Teach everyone about proper toilet paper use; you’ll save money on toilet paper as well

Discard kitchen fats into the trash rather than down the drain

Evaluate your backyard for any invasive tree roots

Pipe Safe Products

Every time you pour Drain-O down your pipes, you corrode your pipes. This makes them weaker and can cause leaks. There are some products that can be used to maintain your drains, but make sure they are safe.

BioOne is made of naturally occurring cultures that can be introduced directly into plumbing systems. These help degraded fat, oil, grease and organic waste build-up through natural biological processes.

RootX kills roots using an aquatic herbicide called Dichlobenil. This is a non-caustic, non-fumigating and non-systemic solution that will not harm your pipes, septic systems or above-ground vegetation.
