Grease and Fat Blocked Drains
Kitchen drains quite often build up with cooking fats and oils. Grease and fat are of the most common blocked drain causes, and yet the easiest to prevent. As these hot liquids become cooler, they start to solidify and can cling to the inside of your drain. This not only starts to smell bad but can build up and completely block pipes.
Foreign objects Blocked Drains
Blocked drains can occur when foreign objects, such as children’s toys, wet wipes and sanitary items become caught in the drain. Though the material may not fully block the drain, over time in combination with other items it will continue to collect at that point. This prevents water from flowing and can eventually result in a completely blocked drain.
Hair Clogged Drains
Hair can pose a larger problem than many homeowners realise. Over time hair can worsen a blockage if it is not cleared. The risk posed by hair can mitigated by using devices that catch hair before it enters the drain. You should pay attention to this simple and avoidable issue.
