Factors that cause clogged and smelly toilets.

There are several factors that can cause the toilet to become clogged and smelly. Here are some of them.

1. Accumulation of rubbish.

One of the main causes of a toilet becoming clogged is the accumulation of rubbish in the drain, such as toilet tissue, sanitary napkins, paper, or other objects that do not dissolve in water.

2. Inappropriate use.

Using the toilet to dispose of items that shouldn't be put in it, such as tissues, sanitary napkins, paper, or other rubbish, can cause blockages.

3. Excessive use.

Using too much toilet paper or flushing excessively at one time can also cause blockages.

4. Release of oil and fat.

The release of oil and grease into the drain can cause a buildup that eventually blocks the flow of water and causes a blockage.

5. Scale buildup.

Scale or dirt that accumulates in the drain can also cause blockages and unpleasant odors.

To prevent the toilet from becoming clogged and smelly, it is important to maintain cleanliness and dispose of waste properly, as well as carrying out routine maintenance on the drain and toilet system.
