Do you have slow draining sinks?
Things like food scraps, bones, vegetable peelings and so on can all lead to a build-up of debris in the pipes which will ultimately lead to a slow draining kitchen sink or even a blocked drain at some point.
The same goes for the bathroom. Hair, pieces of tissue or toilet paper, clumps of soap and so on can get down into the pipes and cause a blockage. Acting like a net, hair traps all sorts of materials and can readily lead to a bathroom sink or shower that’s slow to drain, or a pipe that’s completely blocked.
You could try a few things like running hot water down the drain opening or pouring baking soda & vinegar, boiling water or drain cleaners from the hardware store down the sink but this may be just a band-aid solution.

Tips To Prevent Blocked Drains
Common sense goes a long way in ensuring the drains in your home always run freely. For starters, blocked toilets are often a result of flushing items down the bowl that shouldn’t be in there in the first place. A prime example might be someone cleaning the toilet and drying it off with paper towel, then flushing that paper towel down the toilet.
Minimising food scraps in the kitchen sink is another simple thing that will help prevent a blockage from occurring. Scrape everything off plates into the garbage bin and never try and flush things like vegetable peelings, the rind of fruits or cooking oil down the sink. Hard objects such as bones, no matter how small, should always be discarded in the trash.
In bathrooms, any long hair that has collected in the basin, shower or bath drain should be picked up and tossed into the bin to minimise hair build up.
Running some drain cleaning products through your drains periodically or getting your plumber in to perform maintenance on your drains, can also help to prevent a build-up of debris.
