Bathroom plumbing in Northbrook, Il is no exception to clogs. Unlike kitchen sinks, you may not know exactly what is clogging your bathroom sink. After all, the only things that go down your bathroom sink are water and hand soap. Unfortunately, there are some common reasons that your bathroom sink may clog that you may haven’t considered. The most common reason that your bathroom sink is clogged is because of a buildup of hair. When hair is wet, it clumps together in the perfect way to catch on the side of your pipes on the way down. Soap scum is a chalky, filmy substance that attaches to the sides of your bathroom pipes. It develops when the chemicals in the soap react with calcium and magnesium ions that are in the water. No one wants to experience a clogged sink every time they use the bathroom. Contact our team at BMW Plumbing, Inc. as soon as you notice a problem.
