The bathroom is one of the most common areas of the home that experiences clogs. If you have a clog bad enough that you need a professional, you can have a plumber in Stuart, FL, from Miranda Plumbing & Air Conditioning Services handle it for you. Lean about the top causes of bathroom drain clogs below:


Too much hair accumulation can cause a bad clog in your bathroom drain. It’s probably the most common cause of clogs in your sink, shower and tub. We recommend scheduling regular drain cleaning in Stuart, FL, to clear your drains to avoid hair build up in your drains and ensure their optimal flow.

Tree Roots

It may be surprising, but tree roots are a common reason why you may have a clogged bathroom drain. Our drain inspection services can determine whether your sewer line has been infiltrated by tree roots. When this occurs, it causes a big problem in your sewer system, including clogged drains in your bathroom.

Soap Scum

Soap scum is another common cause of bathroom drain clogging. If you have hard water, the chemicals that make up soap can lead to ugly residue and build up when they come into contact with the minerals in the water. You’re left having to scrub away at the residue in your shower, tub and wall tiles. It can also stick inside your drains and require professional drain cleaning services to remove.

Bathroom Products

Certain bathroom products can also cause a clog if they’re flushed down your toilet. Things like feminine hygiene products, dental floss, cotton balls, moistened wipes and other items should be thrown away in the trash and never flushed. They can get stuck when flushed down and require you to get emergency drain repair.

If you live in Florida and need a reputable drain cleaning company to make repairs in your home, contact Miranda Plumbing & Air Conditioning Services at your earliest convenience. Schedule an appointment by calling our team or filling out the online form.
