We’ll quickly clear your blocked drains

One of the biggest reasons we’re called out is to help with blocked drains – from toilets to showers and sinks. And that’s probably because blocked drains are just unpleasant, unhygienic and inconvenient, bringing your household or business to a standstill. So when drain cleaner just isn’t getting rid of the blockage, give us a call.

Why are my drains blocked?

There are a lot of reasons why drains become blocked. Some you can control, others, not so much.

Things you can control:

  • Hair – one of the most common causes of blocked drains. Regularly remove hair from the trap of your sinks, showers and bathtubs to prevent your drains from clogging.
  • Plants – tree roots and leaves can cause a blockage in pipes which will back up pretty quickly. To prevent plants and leaves from blocking your drains, keep your gutters free from leaves and debris and steer clear of plants that are notorious for clogging drains like palm, willow and gum trees.
  • Grease – grease will build up in the kitchen sink over time, much like hair in the bathroom drains. It can be really hard to clear so don’t pour kitchen grease or fatty foods down the drain. It will cool and harden, clogging the drains
  • Toiletries – disposable wipes, nappies and sanitary items flushed down the toilet are some of the biggest culprits of blocked drains. Nappies absorb moisture and swell, making them perfect for blocking pipes. Wipes – yes, even those that claim to be flushable – get caught in the pipes, quickly causing a build-up and blockage. So chuck nappies and wipes in the bin to avoid having to call us. Plus, it’s better for the environment too.
  • Foreign objects – soap, food build up, and anything else that’s dropped down the drain or flushed down the toilet is likely to cause a blockage sooner or later. So just don’t do it!

Things you can’t control:

  • Heavy rain – you can’t stop the rain, but you can ensure your gutters are kept clean and free of leaves and other debris.
  • Bad installation – poor plumbing installation can damage water flow and increase blockages. So if you’re thinking of renovating, make sure you get a plumber on board to help.
  • Water flow – poor water flow leads to poor drainage. A build-up of sediment within pipes can often cause shower heads and taps to become blocked. Besides being a nuisance, it decreases the water flow. So regularly remove and clean them.
