What causes blocked drains?

Waste material can build up in a drainage network over time. Flow rates are reduced during this process and other material subsequently collects around it.

Some of the most common things that cause blocked drains include: –

  • Insoluble scale and solids created in hard water areas
  • Grease and fats that are rinsed away after cooking
  • Sanitary products that don’t dissolve in water; wet wipes, tampons etc
  • Garden debris; leaves, twigs, silt, stones
  • Latex products; condoms and gloves
  • Plastics including bags and wrapping

How often do drains need cleaning?

The frequency that you will need to be cleaning your drains is dependent on a number of factors: –

  • Is it a commercial or residential property?
  • How many people live or work there?
  • What processes are in place to prevent the wrong things entering the drainage network?
  • Is there a commercial kitchen in the property?

One of our drainage specialists can assess the demands being placed on your drains and recommend how frequently drain cleaning should be carried out. We’re happy discussing your drain cleaning requirements and agreeing a suitable preventative maintenance contract with you.
