Blocked Drains: Winter Advice from CountyClean

Blocked drains can be an unsuspected problem for many homeowners and businesses at this time of year.  Build up of all manner of debris from leaves, twigs, and other rubbish coming into the drainage system from the ground can go onto meet other debris likely to cause blockages.  This can include a build up of grease and fat deposited into the system from home and business owners.

Grease and fat can be a particular problem and can congest your drainage system, building up sizeable deposits known as ‘fatbergs’.

One way of preventing the creation of fat and grease in to your drainage system, is to soak up the content with kitchen towels to deposit into your bin, instead of washing the grease or fat down the sink straight into your drainage system.

Who is responsible for blocked drains?

If you are the property owner and the drain is within the boundary of your property, then it will your responsibility to have the drains cleared.  Beyond your boundary the responsibility will be with the supplier.  Your insurance may cover blocked drains so it’s worth checking your policy.
