Blocked Drains Cleaning Clearing
REGULAR DRAIN CLEANING SEVICES
Routine cleaning of drains & sewers will help you avoid blocked drains
As a homeowner or property manager, regular drain and sewer cleaning should be part of your maintenance program. In order to avoid leaks and cracks, it is important to recognise the symptoms of blocked drains early. If left unattended, blocked drains can cause severe complications, creating more harm to family members and property.
COMMON CAUSES OF BLOCKAGE
The most common causes of blockages indoors are foreign objects flushed down the drain. In a drain that is outside, the most common culprits are leaves, and tree roots infiltrating the plumbing system.
GREASE & FAT
Blocked drains in kitchen sinks are typically caused by grease and fat left behind by food and cooking oil. As time passes, this will eventually harden, blocking the passage of liquid or water.
It is common to find hair blocking drains in toilets and bathrooms. The best way to prevent this is to pick up fallen hair before it flows into the drain. As human hair mixes with soap suds and residue, it becomes a stubborn obstruction. In severe cases, it is better to call a blocked drains specialist.
PLANTS AND DIRT
Plants and dirt can block the flow of water in the yard and garden, especially around trees. A tree's roots seek water sources. These roots can block the flow of water in your underground pipes, resulting in blocked drains. In such cases, you should call a professional plumber immediately to prevent the problem from becoming worse.
TOILETRIES & OTHER FOREIGN OBJECTS
It is not uncommon for people to treat their toilets as rubbish bins. Nappy, sanitary pads, cat litter, and wipes can cause serious drainage problems. As well as harming your drainage and sewage system, this habit has negative effects on the environment. However, there are instances when foreign objects, such as toys, jewellery, dental products, are dropped in drains by accident.
CLEARING YOUR BLOCKED DRAINS
Do-it-yourself (DIY) vs Professional Drain Clearing Services
Most of us attempt to clear blocked drains on our own. The simple DIY fix includes pouring hot water, creating suction through a plunger, and using vinegar and baking soda to dissolve the blockage. The use of chemical drain cleaners is also popular go-to solutions. However, these solvents damage PVC pipes, produce toxic fumes and kill good bacteria that aid in decomposing waste.
For blocked drain problems that could no longer be solved by simple home remedies, call a professional drain and cleaning services like your local plumber to inspect and diagnose the cause of the blocked drains or blocked sewers.
