What causes the majority of clogs in household drains? There are a couple of usual suspects: hair, food waste, grease, fats, soap scum, and small objects like bottle caps accidentally tipped over into the sink. When people call us for a plumber in Orlando, FL to unclog a drain, we often find ourselves dealing with one of the typical drainpipe blockers. No problem, we’ve got the best equipment (like hydro-jetters) and some of the best-trained plumbers around to clear out that drain in no time.
Of course, life is often weird, and plumbing can be extremely weird. Drains can collect some strange things down in them that lead to tough blockages. We’ve been in the business for a long time—more than 40 years—so we’ve come across some bizarre drain cleaning issues. We can take care of them all, don’t worry about that, but we’d like to go over some of the odder reasons a drain can become clogged.
