What causes a drain blockage?
There are several factors that may lead to a drain blockage. They include; poor housekeeping habits, ingress by tree roots, failure to maintain gullies and grids, damage of drainage systems (either deliberately or accidentally) and accumulation of grease and fat. Other causes are; blocked toilets, fractured/ broken pipes, blocked sinks, showers & baths as well as faulty underground pipework.
Who can unblock drains?
This job can be done perfectly by Drainage Care UK drainage engineers.
Are you aware that plumbers usually do the installation as well as maintenance of drainage systems? Did you also know that most drainage engineers are qualified plumbers too? Their roles and responsibilities are usually dependent on specific types of projects relating to the plumbing and drainage industries. They are capable of interpreting blueprints and utilising the required tools to effectively and efficiently unblock drainage systems.
What are the possible effects of blocked drains?
There are short-term and long-term repercussions that can occur if a blocked drain isn’t cleared in good time.
Resurgence of waste
If a blocked drainage system is left un-cleared, water and other waste matter will be prevented from flowing. As a result, waste will start festering within the pipes, effectively resulting in internal waste resurgence.
Apart from the waste resurgence, failure to undertake drain clearance may also encourage the breeding of harmful microorganism, contamination of surrounding soil and water, unpleasant odours as well as irritation/ exacerbation of pre-existing medical conditions such as asthma.
Can a blocked drain cause damp issues?
The answer is a resounding yes. If a blocked drain isn’t cleared in good time, high pressure that builds up internally may lead to the occurrence of leakage.
Build up of moulds and damp can lead to structural damage of the property, especially if the buildings are old. Structural damage will force you to incur significant repair costs. Additionally, it will compromise your safety.
