There are a number of reasons that your drains may become clogged. One of the most common that we see happens in the bathroom. When we shave into our bathroom sinks or shower and wash our hair in the bathtub we all too often allow our whiskers or shed hair to be flushed down the drain. Well, the hair does not always make it that far. Before long enough hair can accumulate to begin trapping other debris such as dirt, toothpaste and so on. Soon enough you have a clogged drain on your hands. Make sure to clean your hair out of your drains after shaving and showering.

Another common cause of clogged drains happens in the kitchen. Kitchen sinks get a lot of use, and it is tempting to allow small scraps to just wash down the drain or to just throw everything into the garbage disposal. Even with a garbage disposal, though, there is plenty of opportunity for food waste to clog your drains. Fibrous foods such as celery or corn husks and hard items such as bones should never go down the garbage disposal. Make sure that you never pour hot grease or fat down you drain. It is only liquid as long as it is hot. Once it cools down it will congeal and can trap other items, leading to a clog.

Do not let clogged drains make your home less convenient. Contact The Sunny Plumber to have your drains professionally cleaned. There is no better way to ensure the reliable function of the plumbing system in your Phoenix home.
