Common Items That Clog Bathroom Pipes

Along with the kitchen, the bathroom is the most common place for clogs to form in your home. They can often be quite stubborn, and while you might want to deal with them using store-bought solutions like cleansers or snakes, it pays to hire a professional to take care of it the right way. Part of that is simply because professionals have equipment and technique that can fix the clog the right way, instead of a one-size-fits-all measure that leaves parts of the clog in place to return a few weeks or months later.

Another reason to call in a professional with a bathroom plumber is because the materials that go down the bathroom drains can be extraordinary stubborn. They can include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Toothpaste. When this accumulate in your drains, it can harden to the consistency of cement, which means getting rid of it takes more than just a store-bought cleanser.
  • Shampoo and soap. Soap scum and shampoo can combine with other elements — particularly human hair — to create a sticky mess that can clog the pipes as stubbornly as toothpaste can.
  • Toilet paper. Using excessive amounts of toilet paper can create a clog, especially double-ply or strong tissue. Adults usually don’t have an issue, but if you have a young child who has recently been toilet trained, he or she may not have the same sense of proper proportion.
  • Toys. Similarly, children may flush toys or similar objects down the toilet as part of a game. Never try to resolve such clogs with a cleanser. It could create toxic fumes when the cleanser affects the plastic. Instead, call in a professional plumber immediately.
