The most effective and long-term solution to a blocked drain

The most effective and long-term solution to a blocked drain

February 10, 2020

Suffering with the long term effects of a blocked drain and keen to find a solution?

Recurring blocked drains are the result of the following foreign objects that, when constantly washed down the drain, will lead to clogging:

Hair

Especially common in bathrooms and showers, hair is a main cause of blocked drains and can be solved simply by cleaning the drain from hair on a regular basis.

Drain spiders are also handy to remove hair from drains if the problem continues.

Plants and dirt

Debris from plants and dirt often get swept into drains causing major blockages around your home. To prevent this from occurring, keep your yard as tidy as possible, making sure your outdoor areas are free from fallen debris.

Grease build up

Constant grease, fat, soaps and dishwashing liquids going down the sink numerous times per day can cause your drains, especially in the kitchen and bathrooms, to become blocked. This type of blockage occurs as a result of these fats building up on the sides of your pipes, which is never a good plumbing problem to have!

To prevent this from happening, resist in the temptation to tip fatty liquids down the sink and instead, place in a jar to let them harden and dispose in the bin. Your drains will thank you for it in the long run.

So remember, to avoid clogged drains in your home – try to prevent any foreign objects washing down the sink or into the home downpipes and guttering.
