Common Reasons People Need a Plumber to Unblock Drains

Common signs of a blocked drain or sewer include slow drainage and a bubbling sound coming from the floor while water is being used. It can sometimes be accompanied by bad smells coming from the drain gate.

A variety of things can cause these blockages, including:

  • Hair
  • Food waste
  • Toilet paper build up
  • Dirt
  • Floss
  • Cotton tips
  • Tampons
  • Baby wipes
  • Mineral build up

No matter what the cause of your blocked drains, your local plumbing experts at O’Neill & Brown Plumbing Services can sort it out!

Tree Root Damage

Another possible source of blocked drains are tree roots. How this comes to happen can be confusing to some homeowners, but it is quite common on properties where trees and plants are around. Tree roots are drawn to sources of water, including the condensation on the outside of plumbing. Once the source of water is located, these roots are powerful enough to penetrate the pipe and block drains.
