Blocked drains are bad news. They happen without warning. They cause unpleasant odours, potential flooding, and can result in loss of customer and staff goodwill, lost productivity and revenue, and even prosecution.

These are measures that can be taken to guard against the inconvenience of a blocked or structurally defective drain:

  • Remove hairs that get trapped in the basin/bath/shower plug hole.
  • Regularly flush basin/bath/shower pipework with disinfectant to clear soap residue
  • Keep objects such as combs, bottles, toys away from where they could fall into the toilet.
  • Don’t flush away disposable items such as nappies, tissues and sanitary towels.
  • Keep drain grids free of leaves, moss and regularly wash down with hot water and disinfectant.
  • Check drains are free-flowing by periodically lifting drain covers.
  • Check gutters and downpipes twice a year. Remove any debris with a trowel
  • Do not dispose of food scraps down the kitchen sink. Pull scraps out of the plug hole, don’t poke through.
  • Try to avoid disposing of cooking fat down the drain. If there’s no alternative, mix with very hot water and plenty of detergent.
  • Don’t overdo the use of soap powder when doing your washing.

    Blocked rainwater drains mean that in times of heavy rain, the water that would normally flow freely down the drain cannot pass through the correct channels – usually due to obstruction. The majority of home and building floods in London are caused directly by blocked rainwater drains that overflow massive amounts of water causing flooding and damage to property. Outdoor rainwater gully traps fill up with leaves and debris in the dry months and suddenly when the heavens open and torrential rain starts to fall, the accumulated debris compounds to form a solid blockage.

    Blocked rainwater drains are a serious issue and therefore we recommend a professional rainwater drain inspection and cleanout at least once a year.

    There are a few household problems less irritating than a slow draining or blocked basin. A blocked basin normally occurs over a period of time starting as a partially blocked basin when hair and soap residue collects in the trap and further down the waste pipe. This creates a net effect catching more and more hair and solids over time and before you know it, you have a fully blocked basin. Unfortunately for most people trying to save some money the real problems start when they rush off to buy strong chemicals to clear the blocked basin.

    Acid drain cleaners if not used correctly when in contact with water in the blocked basin trap, violently reacts causing immense heating which has the potential to melt waste pipes and eat rubber seals further down the waste line. This results in leaking pipes in hard to reach places and a large cost to repair.
