Common Causes of Drain and Sewer Line Clogs
The drains in your home carry wastewater from each plumbing fixture and appliance. The drain system empties into the main sewer line, which carries the wastewater to the street where it meets up with the municipal sewer system. The drains can gradually become clogged with a buildup of a wide variety of debris.
Drain clogs are often caused by:
- Build-up of mineral deposits inside the pipe
- Cosmetics and beauty products
- Flushing things that shouldn’t be flushed
- Food scraps
- Oil and grease
- Small items dropped down the drain
- Soap scum
- Tree roots growing into a sewer line
Some Signs of a Clog in Your Sewer Line
A clog can form anywhere in the drain or sewer line. Generally, clogs form slowly as debris builds up inside the drainpipe. This will cause the water to drain slower than normal until it eventually gets big enough to completely clog the drain. If you have trouble with a single drain, the clog is probably in that drain. When all your drains are affected, the clog is most likely in the main sewer line.
A clog in the main sewer line will cause signs such as:
- Clogs in multiple drains
- Gurgling sounds in toilets
- Puddles in the yard
- Recurring clogs
- Sewage odors
- Slow drains throughout the house
- Wastewater backing up into the house

In addition to clearing the clog in your drain or sewer line, we can provide valuable advice for preventing future clogs. Be mindful of what is being put down the drains and take steps to minimize the amount of debris in the drainpipe. You can use hair strainers in tubs and showers to prevent hair clogs and avoid putting grease, fats, or oil down the kitchen drain.
