Common Causes of Clogged Drains

We’ve seen a lot of clogged drains in the 30+ years we’ve spent working in Overland Park, Olathe, Lenexa, Shawnee, Mission, and the surrounding communities throughout Johnson County, Kansas. While there have been a few things that surprised us – including cellphones – we’ve found that most clogged drains are caused by a few common things:

  • Grease

  • Food scraps

  • Hair

  • Soap buildup

  • “Flushable” hygiene products

  • Excess toilet paper

  • Foreign objects, including toys, jewelry, etc.

  • Damaged pipes

Signs of a Clogged Drain

When the water stops flowing completely, you know you have a totally blocked drain. In most cases, though, the problem builds up slowly before finally clogging the drain completely. Pay close attention to these signs and have your drains cleaned at the first sign of trouble:

  • Smelly drains

  • Drains that flow slower than usual

  • Water backing up in unusual places when draining, such as water backing up in the tub when you flush your toilet

  • Gurgling toilet


What to Do When You Have a Clogged Drain

Thinking about reaching for a bottle of chemical drain cleaner? Think again. Those products contain harmful chemicals that are detrimental to your health and cause significant damage to your plumbing pipes. Try pouring baking soda down the drain followed by white vinegar. This causes a chemical reaction that bubbles and fizzes and are often powerful enough to break up clogs. If that doesn’t work, you can try using a plunger – just be prepared for a mess.
