Checking kitchen drainage Scarborough


What’s causing my drain clogs?

You might be wondering about the culprits behind your drain-clogging misery. When our plumbers arrive at your Scarborough home, they’ll identify some of the following causes for your drain blockage:

  1. Hair, skin flakes, & soap. You shed skin every time you wash your face and hair in the washroom. Over time, the gunk can clog your Scarborough home’s drains as it binds to soap scum in the drain pipes.
  2. Female hygiene products, wipes, diapers, cotton swabs, & floss. Clogged toilets and bathrooms are the worst. When larger household items are flushed down the drain and not properly disposed of in the trash, you have a clogging on your hands.
  3. Oil, grease, fat, and food waste. Cooking substances often clog your kitchen drains because they adhere to the drain pipes and clump together rather than dissolve with the water.
  4. Offset pipes, tree roots, plants & leaves, and mineral build-up. It’s impossible to control everything in your Scarborough home. With time, the ground may shift and settle, dislocating older pipes and interfering with water flow. The smallest crack in a pipe can allow roots, mineral deposits, leaves, or other plants and dirt to enter and cause a backup.

Risks of neglecting a clogged drain

If choking your home’s water flow wasn’t bad enough, a clogged drain in your Scarborough home can bring other inconveniences and serious risks:

  • Unpleasant smells. When wastewater and sewage accumulate, or if your pipes (from the blockage) cease receiving water, a foul stench is released that can permeate throughout your home and cause headaches or nausea.
  • Structural damage from leakages. Backwater flow from drain clogs often builds up pressure, causing pipes to burst or leak. It can weaken the structural integrity of your Scarborough residence, and in worst-case scenarios (if left untreated), you could face flooding.
  • Potential exposure to dangerous bacteria, mould, & pests. The waste build-up in your blocked drain pipes creates a breeding ground for harmful bacteria that can contaminate your sinks and toilets, causing allergies and diseases in household members. Water leaks can also cause harmful mould to grow on your walls and spread through spores. Finally, stagnant water attracts infectious pests or insects, further putting everyone at risk.

Drain backups are no joke. Start preventing wastewater backflow from damaging your walls or furniture and keep household members safe with reliable mainline backwater valve installation & maintenance.

Many Scarborough homeowners unknowingly use outdated and deteriorated clay sewage systems that are deteriorating in function and quality. And since these ancient clay pipes are made from several joints, they have hollow spaces that make them more fragile.

Our expert drain technicians will diagnose your drain pipes and determine whether you need an all-new drain system. Replacing your old drain pipes will prevent soil, tree roots, and other debris from becoming trapped inside and causing blockages.

Get peace of mind about your home’s drainage system by calling Mister Plumber to replace your old, worn-down drains with new and improved unified plastic PVC pipes. Start enjoying uninterrupted water flow throughout your entire home.
