Today, we, AAADrain professionals, would like to tell you about the causes of drain issues, and how to prevent them. Everyone knows the importance of a well-functioning sewer and drain system for cities, neighborhoods, and homes. The city of Toronto is responsible for the city’s systems, so we will not focus on it today. Instead, we will focus on the drain system that runs in your home.
Drain issues usually belong to one of the two following categories – problems that occur due to misuse and a lack of maintenance, and problems that occur regardless of the aforementioned.
Let’s start with the first category. Drain issues can, for instance, occur due to oil buildup from the kitchen sink or items that get into the drain accidentally. This can often happen when there’s a dog in the house, so in that case its best to keep the washroom shut to prevent any problems.
Excess oil buildup occurs due to oil that gets into the drain by the kitchen sink, thus its best to wipe excess oil away and toss it into the garbage instead.
Oftentimes, a root can grow into your drain pipes, especially if you have trees around your house.
All of the mentioned culprits can cause a drain backup, which is never welcome. Those can prevent you from using the washroom or even take a shower.
So to prevent this from happening, you (or with our help) need to perform an inexpensive camera inspection to evaluate the state of your drain system, check all the pipes and traps. We recommend performing such an inspection every few years.
Drain problems can be evidenced by a few symptoms – a bad smell in your basement, audible sounds of flow from your drain pipes, or a water leak in your basement.
