Single Drain Clog
This is when only one drain in your home is clogged and an isolated issue. This type of drain can be cleared at the source of the problem, whether that be a kitchen or bathroom sink, toilet, shower or tub drain. Usually, a clog like this happens over time, it starts slowing down and then eventually stops draining altogether. There are ways to clear a slow moving drain to prevent these types of clogs.
Mulitple Drain Clogs
This is a more serious problem and usually happens suddenly. Often multiple sinks begin to backup at the same time, for example, you flush the toilet and the bathtub starts to fill with water. This is just one example, but you get the point. When this happens there is a clog or a problem somewhere along your sewer drain line under the house or between the house and sewer system.
Avoid chemical drain cleaners, they usually are a short term solution, plus they can actually harm your plumbing system.
How to prevent clogged drains
The best way to prevent clogged drains is to use an enzyme drain cleaner as preventive maintenance. Enzyme cleaners like Lenzyme introduce enzymes and bacteria into your drain system to eat away gunk and buildup. You can utilize this once a month to keep your drains free from buildup.

Why do I consistently have clogged drains?
If you experience clogs and backups in your home more than a few times, its a good idea to have a professional evaluate your drain system. A drain specialist like TLC will use a camera to inspect your drain system. Often, if you have multiple drain problems you may have a drain line break somewhere in your home or along your drain line to the sewer system. The camera can locate and identify the problem so the drain can be repaired.
