Just Another Issue Related To Covid-19
Being bombarded with news about the spread of the Coronavirus is enough to make anyone a little paranoid. And it is easy to see how that can carry over to other parts of your life. But if you think you have an issue with slow clearing drains in your home, don’t chalk it up to being overly on edge or a negative outlook making you think the worst. There is a genuine possibility that you have inadvertently created a clog in your drains or sewer line that could cause sewage to back up into your home.
The Big Mistake
If you were unable to purchase toilet paper and have resorted to TP substitutes like paper towels, napkins, tissues, or baby wipes, then you are probably well on your way to having a sewage catastrophe. And while it was necessary to find something to do the job of toilet paper, that item should never have been flushed down the toilet.
Toilet paper is designed to disintegrate almost immediately when it is submerged in water. This helps to eliminate the large clumps of paper that can create clogs in residential and city sewer lines. But when you flush other paper products, they don’t break down. Instead, they become lodged in the residue inside the sewer pipe and begin to collect other debris. And the more paper you flush, the larger the blockage becomes until your entire sewer pipe is clogged. At this point, you will begin to notice sewage and dirt water backing up into your home.
One More Important Piece Of Information
So after your initial mistake of flushing napkins or paper towels, you now have a clogged sewer line. But don’t fall into the trap of making another big plumbing related mistake when trying to fix the first problem. Drain cleaner from the big box store is not the answer. These products are a combination of harsh chemicals and acid that claim to dissolve anything that is clogging your drain pipe.
But what is more likely to occur is that the chemicals will dissolve your drain pipe long before removing the clog. When you discover a sewer or drain clog in your home, only trust the pros at Flow Plumbing to fix the problem. Our drain cleaning professionals have the tools needed to remove the clog quickly and safely.
