Drain blockages are incredibly common but can prove disastrous for the functionality of the drainage system as a whole. Some drainage problems cannot be solved at home, and need expert solutions delivered by a team of professional drainage system experts.
What causes drain blockages?
There are many reasons that your drainage system might be blocked. The causes of blockages can vary between older and newer properties, as well as between residential, commercial, and industrial sites. Some of the most common issues that cause drain blockages are common household issues, such as grease build up, or toiletry or hair build up. There can also be existing structural issues within your drainage system, such as poor water flow, broken piping, or bad pipe installation. Sometimes, something as simple as a storm or heavy rainfall can be the culprit behind your blocked drain. Whilst blocked drains are incredibly common, it is important any drainage issues are dealt with quickly.
How do you unblock a drain?
With minor drain blockages it is possible to unblock a blocked drain yourself at home. This can be done with careful use of drainage rods, or with the use of chemical treatments. However, it is often difficult to identify what is a major or minor drainage issue, and any works you undertake yourself you run the risk of doing further damage or worsening the problem. When it comes to drainage issues, it is always best to trust the professionals. Whilst this has the potential to cost more initially than fixing a problem yourself, with the added cost of buying the necessary equipment, or paying a professional to fix your mistakes, it is worth it in the long run to avoid this risk.
