Common Causes of Clogged Drains
The only things that should ever really go down your drains are water, human waste, and toilet paper. Pouring or flushing anything else down is a risk, and can lead to a clog in the future. Some of the most common substances that can create a blockage include:
- Fats, oils, and grease: Fatty oils will stick to your pipes and incoming food particles will latch on to these sticky substances. To avoid constant visits from our Elk Grove drain cleaning experts, discard you cooking oils in a used milk carton and then throw out the carton.
- Hair: Hair is the number 1 culprit when it comes to drain cleaning. These devices are super cheap and easy to install, so there's no reason not to protect your drains from hair today.
- Cotton and hygiene products: Even if a product is marketed as "flushable," you should still dispose of it in the garbage can rather than tempting fate and flushing it down your toilet. Cotton products swell in size when exposed to water, and can quickly create a serious blockage.
- Food waste: Starch, coffee grounds, egg shells, bones, celery, fruit pits, and potato peels. Our Elk Grove drain cleaning experts will always help you, but you can avoid the process altogether by throwing these foods in the trash.
Our team is equipped with the tools and experience necessary to provide a fast, quality fix that won’t disrupt your life. Before you know it, you’ll have fast-flowing drains again.
Some signs you need your drains cleaned include:
- Slow draining or standing water in sinks or tubs

- Gurgling sounds coming from your drains
- Frequent clogs or backups
