A clogged drain can be a real headache that can cost you time and money. Importantly, blockage repair costs vary depending on the location of your drain. For example, in the bathroom sink or shower, the buildup of hair and soap scum is often the cause of a clog. In the kitchen, a buildup of grease, old food scraps, and oils can cause a clog over time.
