Drainage in our homes or place of busy is quite important as they carry off any surplus liquid (such as rainwater). Blockages can occur due to a number of reasons and while some are less significant, others can cause some serious issues. Blockages can arise due to dead leaves, intruding tree roots, stuck sanitary items such as pads, tampons or baby wipes, soap or grease build up or from sand build up. Whatever the cause of the blockage, it is important to seek professional help as soon as possible. If left unclogged, mould can begin to grow and cause health issues for people. If you are a resident of Elizabeth Bay and are seeking support for a blocked drain, calling us at Sydney Blocked Drains can be the easiest and most cost-effective choice.

 

 

What is the first thing I should do?

The first thing to do is to roughly identify where the blockage is. Commonly a faint odour can arise from the blockage area or a puddle of water can be seen. If possible, it is a great idea to turn off the water supply until a professional can attend the scene. Our plumbing team is on call, 24-7 on our support line so it is imperative to not leave things until the next day. For those without any plumbing experience, it is important to not try to take apart any pipes yourself. Our experts have all of the required equipment and safety gear needed to solve the problem.

 

How can I prevent blockages in the future?

If you are an Elizabeth Bay resident who commonly experiences blocked drains, there are some general things you can do to prevent this from happening. Hot water can be run through the sink after ease use to help oils easily flow through the drains. Furthermore, oils and grease can be kept in cans or bottles and thrown in the trash, rather than washed down the sink. Similarly, coffee grinds or thick leftovers can be put in the bin or in the compost. Some swear by pouring a cup of vinegar down their drains and leaving it for 30 minutes in order to remove any build-up of crud. Others regularly use products such as Drano which has separate products for different areas in the home such as the shower, toilet, or kitchen sink.
