Why Clogged Drains Reoccur

As experts in drain cleaning, the team from Specialized Pipe Technologies (SPT) is well-aware of the many problems that clogs can cause. The type of clogs that tend to be most problematic is the ones that keep happening. So, below, we’re going to point out some reasons why this can happen.

Tree Roots and Shrubs

A common reason for experiencing repeated clogged drains is because of issues with tree roots or shrubs. The vegetation of this nature can get into openings in underground pipes and block the flow enough to cause periodic clogging. Hydro jetting is a powerful cleaning method we may recommend to break up tree roots and restore normal flow.

Fats, Oils, and Grease

A clogged drain may be a regular and frequent problem if your drain lines are coated with fats, oils, and grease. This is something that can happen from years of use, or from not being mindful of what’s going down drains when pots and pans are being cleaned or rinsed.

Flushing Things That Aren’t Flushable

You may also benefit from regular professional drain cleaning services if clogs keep occurring because of what was flushed down your toilet. This is a situation that can develop over time from routinely flushing wipes, feminine hygiene products, and other things that shouldn’t be flushed.

Unsafe DIY Drain Cleaning Methods

A clogged drain could also be a frequent problem if you rely too much on DIY drain cleaning methods. Over-the-counter drain cleaning products, for instance, can contribute to corrosion and affect drain flow – and repeated use of a plunger can push debris further down enough to make clogs a regular thing.
