10 Items That Are Likely To Clog Your Drain
Clogs strike at the most inconvenient times and if they’re tough, stubborn ones you can’t fix on your own. You need a professional’s touch and that’s where we come in. At Aztec Plumbing & Drains, we proudly provide customers with outstanding drain cleaning in Port Charlotte and beyond.
See below to find out what you should absolutely avoid putting down the drain.
1 - Coffee Grounds
You might need a little extra caffeine to keep you powering through the day and we don’t blame you! Just make sure you discard the grounds in the trash instead of in the sink because they can clog the drain.
2 - Fruit Peels
You may be thinking fruit peels are soft enough for the garbage disposal to chop up with ease, when in reality, they can wrap around the blades and cause serious problems. Not to mention it takes a while for them to disintegrate so they’ll likely clog the drain in the meantime.
3 - Eggshells
They’re no match for garbage disposal blades, but that’s not where the problem lies. Once they get smashed up into small pieces and head down the drain, they can easily stick to grease or other oily substances (that also shouldn’t have been washed down the drain). Regardless, this can cause buildups or blockages in the drain and cause water to back up in the sink.
4 - Fats and Oils
Like we mentioned above, grease, fat and oil should never be washed down the drain. Not only do they solidify as they cool, which can cause blockages in itself, but they can act as a binder and cause other items to get stuck in the drain.
5 - Pasta
Pasta expands when it comes in contact with water and even though it’s soft when it’s cooked, it can still get stuck in the line. Unless you have a garbage disposal that will chop it into very small pieces, it’s best to discard pasta in the trash.
6 - Fibrous Foods
Stringy foods like celery, artichokes and asparagus, and any other foods with skin should be kept out of the drain. Not only can the strings wrap around garbage disposal blades, these types of foods can get stuck in the strainer and cause the sink to back up.
7 - Boiling Water
This one may surprise you a bit and while it may not cause a clog, boiling water can cause some damage. Depending on your pipes and the age and quality of your plumbing system, extreme heat could cause pipes to crack or melt. It’s best to allow liquids to cool before dumping them into the sink.
8 - Rice
Similar to pasta, rice expands in water and can cause a paste-like substance which could coat the inside of your pipes.
9 - Cosmetic Products
Never discard cosmetics in the sink as the oils used in many of them can cause problems in the drain. They can also pick up other materials as they begin to solidify as they flow through the drain.
10 - Paper
You may not be as inclined to throw paper into the sink as you would food scraps, but when you use a paper towel or other forms of paper for food prep or cleaning, it may wind up in the sink by accident. If a paper product does happen to fall into the sink, try to pick it out before it heads down the drain.

When to Consider Drain Clearing
The truth is that most homeowners don’t know when to get their drains cleaned. The problem with this is that clogged drains may be a sign of a small issue, or of a major problem. This is why it’s important to call a skilled Port Charlotte drain cleaning technician to look at your drains sooner rather than later.
You should consider calling for drain cleaning service if:
- There is standing water in your bathtub, shower, or sinks
- Your toilet refuses to flush
- Your toilet makes gurgling sounds when another sink drains
- Your sinks, shower, or bathtub are slow to drain
- The drains in your home emit gurgling sounds while draining
- There is a sewage smell wafting up from your drains
