Why is it So Important to Deal with Blocked Drains?
As you’ll know, blocked drains can cause a variety of issues which can have a damaging effect on your home or business. The unpleasant gurgling sounds and slow-draining sinks, baths and toilet bowls are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the issues that your home or business could suffer from.
Whenever blocked drains start to become serious, it can not only run the risk of damaging your property, but it can lead to areas which are hazardous to human health. It is absolutely essential that you choose to work with a professional team of drainage specialists if you want to create a space which is safe for yourself and your family, or your customers and employees.
Blocked drains can cause a variety of problems in your property, including:
- Pressure Spikes – As blockages can reduce the operational width of the pipes, the pressure of the water flowing through the system will be increased. In some circumstances, this can lead to pipes bursting or cracking. In these instances, the water can be emitted from your pipes and drains at high pressure, creating a potentially dangerous and certainly unsafe area. In some instances, the water pressure can force the waste in the system to flow backwards in the pipe. This means that your toilets, sinks and showers could all begin to flood your property with the physical detritus and wastewater that you thought you’d disposed of.
- Leaks – If water or wastewater does start to leak from your pipes, this can cause a great deal of damage to your home or business. Even if there isn’t an obvious case of flooding, there is always the risk of the water leak causing mould or damp to grow in your walls or on your floor. This can cause a great deal of structural damage to your property.
- Waste Build Up – There is also the risk that human waste can become trapped in your drains due to the blockage further down the line. This is a major health hazard and can quickly make you and anyone else nearby fall ill. This will normally be accompanied by disgusting smells, sometimes like sulphur, which can indicate that you need to get in touch with a professional team of drain specialists.
What Causes Blocked Drains?
There are dozens of different reasons as to why your drains might become blocked – either in your home or commercial property. That makes it difficult to identify where the blockage is located and what has caused it in the first place.
Drainage specialists will be able to conduct reliable CCTV drain surveys to identify the cause of the blockage. This service involved feeding a small camera through the drains. Using this industry-leading technique, your professional team will be able to quickly and easily discover what is causing the drainage problems on your property.
Some of the most common causes of blocked drains in properties across the South West include:
- Pipe Collapses – When a pipe is placed under too much pressure, there is the risk that it will collapse on itself. If your system relies on pipes which aren’t designed to deal with their capacity, then your home or business could be in serious danger. Just some of the issues associated with pipe collapses include:
- Compacted Soil and Waterlogged Gardens.
- Damage to Foundations.
- Mould and Damp.
- Tree Roots – These growths are attracted to the water in your drains. Roots from plants and trees will try to enter your pipes to access the moisture and nutrients in your waste. As roots can grow into even the smallest of gaps or cracks, they are a major threat to your drainage health. These can create some of the most difficult to move blockages, even for the specialists to resolve.
- Poor Drainage Care – Neglecting to take care of your drains efficiently is a good way to cost yourself a great deal of money. By flushing or disposing of the wrong kinds of materials, you could be actively contributing to blocked drains. Just some of the common materials to avoid flushing are:
- Feminine Products.
- Food Waste.
- Fats, Oils and Greases (FOGs).
- Kitchen Roll.
- Wet Wipes.
As you can see, these issues can cause a wide range of problems for your home or business property. If you’re suffering from any kind of drainage issue in the South West of England, don’t hesitate to get in touch with a professional drainage team.
