5 Main Causes of Blocked Drains.
One of the most common things that can make you feel irritated in the mornings is a block drain. Though a blocked drain might seem like a small problem, it can become a big one if you don’t fix it right away or get it fixed. Some of the consequences of not getting a blocked drain fixed could be slow drainage of water, flooding, corrosion, and even sewage backup.

Here you can have a look at 5 main causes of blocked drains and learn how to prevent them.

Fallen Hair:

Hair fall is common when you have a bath or shower. Sometimes, your hair becomes a small bunch, and it may block the drain. If you want to avoid the irritation of scraping out clogged hair from a blocked drain, you should attach drain guards to catch hair. Clear these regularly too.

Soap Scum:

Most soap bars contain fat and grease. So, the fat might combine with mineral in water and form something called soap scum. It can clog pipes and make you clean them again and again. A simple solution to this problem is to start using soap free washes and pressure cleaning pipes to get rid of all traces of soap buildup.

Excess of Toilet Paper

Excessive use of toilet paper can also be the culprit behind a blocked toilet. The only way to prevent this from happening is to ensure that you purchase a toilet paper that dissolves easily when it comes in contact with water and restrict its use as much as possible.

Dirt Particles:

If you like doing laundry in your bathroom because that’s convenient or you often have a lot of dirt on your body when you take a bath or shower, you must keep track of the dirt. The dirt particles can accumulate and block the drain. A simple solution to this problem could be to shake off the dirt particles from your body and clothes before you enter the bathroom.

Mineral Accumulation:

There are many minerals present in hard water and a build up of minerals can block a drain. If your area is constantly supplied with hard water, you should consider installing a water softener. It will be a worthy investment. If you don’t want to try that route, you can also descale regularly and get rid of build up and sediment. Always remember that mineral buildup clogs can be hard to remove once they are established so you must make sure that the clogs don’t happen at all.
