Prevention for Drains
Prevention seems to be the best solution. To speak to a our specialist, is to inform yourself to what is needed to avoid blockages and for your issue to be resolved if you didn’t avoid it. To speak to us, is something that you can do at any time that suits your schedule.
The four main causes of a blocked drain are grease, hair, foreign objects and leaves and dirt.
Grease – For a blockage in sinks especially kitchen sinks the main thing to blame is the grease and fat you pour down when cooking. Easy and simple way to avoid sink backing up it to wait the fat from cooking food to cool down and then dispose it in the bin.
Hair – Also very simple thing to do is to clean your shower and bath after using so there is no hair left to cause a future blockages of your drains.
Foreign objects – Just be careful and pay attention to what to chunk into your drains because not every object even if it is organic will decompose as fast as your drain needs and it can be a major cause of instant blockage.
Leaves and dirt – To keep your garden and house front clean is not just for your and your neighbours eyes but also for the health of your drainage system. So if you don’t want to see your garden flooded or a big puddle at the front of your house keep it clean and leafless. We are called to many jobs in the area where leaves have stopped the drains and this situation could have easily been avoided. During the year it is inevitable that leaves will fall into the drains as the leaves are falling from the trees. By making sure that you have a grill over the drain and by clearing the grill from time to time you will save yourself a lot of problems.
