Why your drains get blocked
There are a number of reasons why your drains get blocked such as grease, foreign objects, toilet paper, and so on.
Grease. Grease blockages happen when the grease and fat build up and solidifies within the drain itself. While this can be an easy fix and not that complicated or expensive for residential houses, but this can be a problem if you have a restaurant.
Foreign objects. Foreign objects can be anything and at times plumbers are amazed at what they found blocking drains. Some items they mostly find are tampons, silicone tubes, beer cans, socks, air fresheners, and items you won’t even expect to be there.
Toilet paper. This is the most common issue for drains to get clogged. However, this is just a minor and can easily be solved.
