Do you get all choked up whenever the water in the toilet, sink, or tub overflows? Many share that sinking feeling as indoor and outdoor plumbing in Aurora and other parts of Canada fall victim to clogging, bringing much inconvenience and stress. An article on the website of energy retail provider Direct Energy identifies the usual (and unusual) suspects in drainage obstruction and how to avoid them.
In the bathroom sink, strands of hair and small objects, such as jewelry, are the culprits. To catch any potential obstructions in the sink, try installing a drain catcher or a drain cover made of wire mesh. Households in Aurora should do drain cleaning routinely to prevent future clogging, but more than the cleaning, they have to adopt certain lavatory habits.
Researchers discovered that people were tossing in some pretty odd things into the toilet bowl, such as the following:
Clogged toilets are a nasty business. These mainly happen when people try flushing down items that do not dissolve or break apart in water such as:
- feminine hygiene products
- cotton-tipped swabs
- dental floss
- pre-moistened diaper wipes
The solution to clogged drainage is actually quite simple but often ignored – don’t flush anything except toilet paper and biological waste. Everyone at home should be made aware of this before the problem worsens. Once you see the warning signs like odd gurgling sounds, slow draining, and foul smells, take action immediately. When the blockage becomes impacted over time, no do-it-yourself remedy will resolve this.
If you are constantly plagued with clogging or slow drains, have a plumber inspect the plumbing to determine if the drain line was properly designed and installed…
Also, if there is a constant odor of raw sewage in your home, contact a professional plumbing service immediately.
