Within these communities, families and residents spot forms of blockage in their homes. One of the most common causes is grease and fat. These substances can easily slide down kitchen sinks and may not initially cause such nuisance. Over time, the more that these materials accumulate and mix with cold water, they buildup and stick to the walls of the pipes causing it to block the entry way of water underground. A buildup of hair can also pose a big threat for homeowners. As these continuously enter the drain pipes in the bathrooms, it creates a massive blockage if not cleared immediately. Soaps scum the linings of the pipes underneath leading to nasty obstruction of water flow. Outdoor culprits of blocked drains also include tree roots which are drawn to the nearest source of water and can also crack into the pipes over time, causing a blockage.
