Common causes of blocked sinks

Our drainage engineers are used to finding all sorts of things in a blocked drain. Care should definitely be taken before the following things are washed down a kitchen or bathroom sink: –

  • Fats, oils and grease from cooking
  • Plastic or paper drinking straws
  • Toothpicks and wooden skewers
  • Food waste
  • Cotton buds and dental floss
  • Pieces of plastic

Essentially avoid anything from going down your sink that isn’t a liquid.
