The drain was clogged by lots of hair and soap

I’ve seen a lot of drains that are badly clogged and usually these types of problems come in commercial settings.

This week I went to help a residential client that had a ton of soap residue and standing water stuck inside of the drain pipes. Overtime residue from soap and standing water can accumulate and form a sticky substance that sticks to the inside of your pipes like plaque to your arteries. This sticky substance collects any hair, particles, and debris that is flushed or washed down the drain. When enough soap and scum plug the drain, the water flow is reduced and you end up with a clog and a backup. On Monday I was helping a residential client with a clogged pipe. I do not think that I have ever seen so much hair and soap scum in one site. The pipe was completely included and there was hardly any water going through at all. It took me 2 hours to clean all of the scum out. After that, I use a special unit to check all of the pipes from the bathroom and the bedroom. There was sticky residue in almost every one of the pipes leading out of the house, then by the time I was done unclogging every single one of the drainage pipes, my afternoon was half over. The time went by suddenly. After I finished with a bidet and toilet service in the afternoon, I was ready to go home and put my feet up for the rest of the afternoon.
