Why do blocked drains occur?
There are many different reasons why a blockage can occur but no matter the reason, our professional team can take care of the job. We even offer a job satisfaction guarantee. These are some of the common reason we find that a blockage can occur in the home or place of business.
Heavy rainfall – Blocked drains can often occur after a heavy rainfall. The amount of quick flowing and powerful water that goes through the pipes can lead to different things getting moved around inside the drains and lead to a blockage. Furthermore, a heavy rainfall can cause an already deteriorated pipe to finally break. Either scenario can be taken care of by one of our specialised team members.
Sand or dirt build-up – The build-up of sand, dirt or dead leaves can commonly cause a blocked drain. We can find the location of this blockage with our state-of-the-art CCTV Drain camera, and can easily remove it with our high-pressure water jetter.
Salt-water residue – Salt-water can leave a build-up salt residue inside your pipes which can cause a blockage, or can cause your pipes to slowly deteriorate. In the case where your pipes may need fixing, we offer a no dig pipe reliving service which will see your pipes get fixed without your property getting disturbed.
Kitchen products – Kitchen products like cooking oil, food grease or eggshells are a common cause of a blocked drain. It is best to have a strainer over the kitchen sink in order to prevent these kinds of items from going down the drain.
Sanitary items – Sanitary items such as baby wipes, thick toilet paper, pads or tampons are commonly found stuck inside pipes. It is a great idea to have a bin in the toilet, so these items can be disposed of correctly instead.
