Why is Drain Maintenance So Important for Homes and Businesses in the UK?
Any drainage issues which do develop on your property can cause long-term structural damage, as well as a range of irritating symptoms. Drain maintenance can help you to avoid these issues before they become serious. It is much easier to deal with blockages or drain pipe issues than it is to conduct essential repair or replacement work.
Without effective maintenance, your property will start to suffer due to drainage issues. Some of the most common drainage issues are blockages, tree root intrusions and collapsed pipes.
What Causes Drain Blockages?
Blocked drains occur when materials become attached the interior of your pipe. They will usually become tightly compacted, which makes them resistant and difficult to shift. Some of the most common causes of drain blockages are:
- Baby Wipes.
- Toilet Paper and Kitchen Roll.
- Fats, Oils and Greases (FOGs) and Food Waste.
- Hair and Skin Cells.
- Soap Scum and Cleaning Products.
- Makeup and Feminine Products.
How do Tree Root Intrusions Occur?
Plant and tree roots will be able to detect the moisture in your pipes. They will grow in the direction of your pipes and attempt to access the water. They only require the smallest of cracks or gaps in joints to enter your pipes. Once they are inside, these roots will quickly grow. The nutrients and moisture in the pipe will cause the tree roots to create a serious blockage, which can cause long-term structural damage to the pipe and the system.
What Makes Pipes Collapse?
Collapsed pipes can occur for a wide range of reasons. Subsidence, pressure on the pipe or simply wear and tear can cause the integrity of your pipes to fail. These are major problems as they will cause water and waste to escape from your pipes into the surrounding soil.
What are the Risks of Poor Drain Maintenance?
Without effective and professional drain maintenance for residential and commercial properties, you could be putting your building at risk. Any of the above issues can result in a range of irritating or hazardous issues to develop in your property. Whether you’re suffering from blocked pipes, tree root intrusion or collapsed pipes, some of the issues you could be forced to deal with include:
- Slow-Draining Sinks, Toilets and Baths – If there are partial blockages in your pipes, the water may only drain slowly. This can be a major irritation, especially in the morning when you’re trying to get ready for work.
- Unpleasant Smells – If water or waste of any kind is allowed to remain in the drains, it can quickly become foul. This will create unpleasant smells which emanate from your drains and plugholes.
- Structural Damage – If water can escape from your pipes, at any point in the system, it is easy for the waste and water to cause structural damage. If water can access your property’s soil, it can cause it to shift. This can force your building’s foundations to move in place and, in some cases, crack.
- Flooding – One of the most unpleasant issues to deal with is when a drainage pipe collapses or bursts and causes your home or business to flood. Not only can this be harmful to your health, it can also result in extensive damage to your property and personal belongings.
Thanks to effective drain maintenance from the professional team at Drainage Care, you’ll be able to avoid all of these problems. This can prevent long-term structural damage and eliminate all kinds of minor and major irritations.
