Clogged Drains: A Health Disaster

clogged drains

When we encounter difficult situations in our homes like clogged drains, it’s easy to dismiss them. Sometimes, they’re just too complicated and you want to avoid it at all costs. However, some problems can cause health risks, and drains that are in poor shape can cause dangers to you and others in your living space.

Mold and Other Bacteria

A clogged drain is a perfect space for mold and other bacteria to spread and grow, and when left unattended, it can trigger several responses. People with allergies will suffer, and it can cause irritation in many other forms. Since it is so spreadable, getting it under control from the jump is a must.

Undrinkable Water

If you let clogged drains stew, your water will be unfit to drink. Between dirt, oils, and more that get soaked up in the clogged material, your water will cause your body plenty of harm if you try to drink it.

Broken Structures

Too much pressure on your drain’s pipes and drain system in general can cause plenty of distress to its structural integrity. Enough pressure and wear from clogging and your system will be very weak and probably break in due time. Then, you’ll have to deal with the costs of installing new hardware and more.


Once your clogged drains overflow, you’ll deal with flooding. Excess water can wear down structures, cause mildew and mold growth, and more. Flooding is the start of many problems, and it is one of the hardest issues to fix once it starts.
