Blocked drains are more common than you think in the average household.  They can be extremely unpleasant and will quickly become a health hazard if it’s not dealt with quickly. A clogged drain will cause bad smells, sewage backups and possibly, foul water spillages. You will find most major problems range from something as simple as a blocked sink to a new drainage system.

Additionally, If wastewater pipes become completely blocked, your everyday appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines will not be able to discharge the unclean water and will stop working. 

Similarly, baths and showers will be unable to drain, leaving stale water floating which can be ripe with bacteria. This is why it is important to address early signs of blocked drains as soon as possible.

The quicker that the problem is addressed, the easier it will be to resolve. Call the professionals at drain clearing – Origin, Gas Plumbing and Heating Ltd. Our experienced engineers will get your drains flowing again in no time.

What Causes Drains To Become Blocked?

There are numerous reasons for a blockage to occur in your commercial building or domestic homes. Often blockages happen because people are unaware that the products they are putting into the system could become stuck. Once one thing becomes wedged, everything that follows gets stuck behind it and starts the blocking process.

Products such as baby wipes, cotton wool, sanitary products and paper towels do not flush easily through toilet pipework. If there are any narrow sections or sharp bends in the pipes, these bulky items get stuck. When toilet flushes aren’t working fully, there isn’t sufficient water to flush things properly away either.

In the kitchen, animal cooking fat is liquid when it’s hot, but solid when it’s cold. If the fat is poured down the sink, it can solidify in the pipes and cause a blockage.

Blocked Pipework

Food waste or items accidentally dropped into the pipework will also add to the chances of blocked pipework. Externally drains and pipework can become damaged by soil movement or growing tree roots. Whatever is causing the blocked drain, we guarantee to locate the cause and deal with it. Using the latest equipment we will clear your pipework quickly and at a fair, competitive price.

Some small blockages can be cleared using everyday cleaning products bought in a hardware store. If these chemicals are used as soon as the problem occurs, they can be effective at dissolving grease and hair. However, If this does not work. Do not delay and call in the professionals. If left untreated for long, you will cause the blockage to build up and be more difficult and possibly more expensive to treat.

We strongly advise that you do not attempt to use stronger chemicals because these can be extremely dangerous and may even cause damage to the pipework. To clear major blockage problems contact Origin – your local, industry accredited, fully insured and guaranteed drainage company.
