What Causes Blocked Drains?Blocked drains can occur for many reasons and can be unpleasant – even unhygienic. Some of the most common causes are:
In dry times trees try to source water from the ground. They will wrap their roots around pipes and strangle any water or condensation from them. Pipes will then either block up internally or suffer exterior damage.
Cakes of soap are something people commonly push into drains thinking they will dissolve. This often causes blockages in bathrooms along with jewellery, nappies, sanitary items, wet wipes and, of course, hair.
Kitchen drains will often build up cooking fats and oils that simply do not wash down. This can cause blocked drains and sewers as well as unpleasant odours.
Confused as to why your new kitchen, bathroom or laundry renovation is already blocking up? Too often, inexperienced tradies or handymen have blocked the overflow gully with grout, paint and concrete waste – a potentially very expense problem. Ensure you confirm the qualifications of any trade person or handyman who works on your property.
