The Causes of Blocked Drains Reading
The truth is, there are many ways your drains can become blocked. If you can think of the most obscure reason, it has probably happened. Sometimes it is a direct result of your actions, whilst in other cases it will be through no fault of your own. Regardless of the reason, it’s important that the problem is solved quickly and efficiently.
If left unchecked for too long, blocked drains Reading can be a major health and safety concern, as well as a potential issue for building regulations. The costs, unsurprisingly can be very high.
Most Common Causes of Blocked Drains Reading
Fats, Oils and Grease (F.O.G.s) – These everyday substances are often washed down drains. Unfortunately, they can easily collect within a pipe and cause a narrowing which inevitably collects more substances, food and other materials. A blockage will invariable occur as a result of this.
Flushing of Inappropriate Objects – This is a frequent occurrence and is a major cause of blocked drains Reading. This is due to the objects been unable to dissolve properly. Often, these objects can include the following:
- Kitchen Roll
- Medical Supplies and Waste
- Sanitary Products
- Used Makeup
Tree Roots – This is sometimes overlooked, but tree roots can affect drains in a particularly inconvenient and difficult way. Roots are sensitive to the presence of moisture and drains offer a consistent supply for them. If a small crack or exposed entrance is available, tree roots will grow directly into them, causing a difficult to reach blockage. Even more, once these roots reach these sources of moisture, they can grow quickly, causing further damage. If this isn’t resolved quickly, a replacement drain would be required, rather than a drain unblocking service.
Collapsed Drains – Older properties tend to have older, more dilapidated drains. With the modern increase in flow pressure, the chances of a collapsed drain are pretty high. With this risk, the collapse of a drain can undermine the structural integrity of a building. Leaking pipes can damage walls, building foundations and even water-log the surrounding area. In much the same way as modern drains, preventing older drains from becoming blocked before these problems arise is the most appropriate step to take.
