There are a number of reasons that your sewer may clog. If you have trees planted near your sewer lines, the tree roots can quickly damage the pipes and even cause blockage. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to prevent a problem from occurring in the first place:
Instead, pour the grease into a can or disposable container and then dispose of it in the trash. Make sure to also wipe away any remaining grease with a paper towel and dispose of it in the trash. You may also consider taking larger amounts of grease to your local household hazardous waste collection facility, where they can safely dispose of it or recycle it for you.
If you have a clog, don’t wait to call a plumber. While it may seem like a small problem now, it can quickly lead to other plumbing issues, which can require a large investment of time and money on future repairs. Instead, a professional plumber can quickly take care of the problem once and for all.
Your plumber will likely perform a camera inspection to find the source of the problem to provide a thorough solution. For a bad clog, you may choose an emergency plumber who can respond to the problem quickly, regardless of the time of day or night.
