What are the most common causes of Blocked Drains? 

There are many common causes that lead to a blocked drain - after all, there are only so many things that you can really wash away through your drain. However, there are a few culprits that tend to be the cause of a blocked drain more often than not. 

  • Hair: Hair is a very common cause of blocked drain, as it can bind with grease which will lead to clog forming.
  • Soap: Traditional soap bars have a lot more grease in them than you think – in fact, most of traditional soap bars are made out of fat. Once the soap binds with the minerals in water, a certain residue named soap “scum” will form. This will then stain your pipes more often than not
  • Food: Seeds, oil and coffee grounds are three of the foods or food products that we tend to find more often than not. Oil can solidify quickly and lead to a clogged drain before you know it.  Coffee Grounds and Seeds are often solid and will stay in your drain before you know it.
  • Small objects: From cotton tipped swabs to childrens toys -  at Quinn Developments we have found an variety of objects down the drain.
