There is numerous reasons for blocked drains occurring in homes as well as businesses. Some of the most common include:

  • Tree Roots
  • Foreign Objects
  • Misalignment or Breakages
  • Pipe Collapses
  • Soil Settlement

Unless your home was built within the last 10 - 15 years chances are that you could have older style clay pipes under your home. These types of pipes are more prone to problems as over time the inside of the clay pipes begin to deteriorate and becomes flakey.
