What Causes Blocked Drains?
Many homeowners and business owners will experience some form of blocked drain. Our teams here at CountyClean Group have a thorough understanding of the most common causes of blocked drains and sewers.
Here is a short checklist to help you identify the most common causes and how to avoid blockages from them.
Trees and Leaves
During autumn, make sure that fallen leaves are kept clear from drain grates and gullies. Tree roots can also cause problems as they are drawn to water and can invade drainage systems causing blockages and damage to the pipework, which can then cause flooding.
Grease and Fat
We carried our high pressure water jetting to clear the biggest fatberg ever found in the UK. It was caused by the build-up of grease and fat from restaurants. This is one of the most common causes of blocked drains and sewers, yet it is easy to prevent.
Fatty substances, which are washed down sinks will congeal in colder temperatures and stick to the sides of the drainage pipework. In time this builds up and clogs the drains and sewers. As it builds up over time it reduces the flow of the drain so may not be noticeable at first.
Avoid washing fatty deposits with washing up liquid. Instead, use kitchen towels to mop up grease and deposit these in the bin.
A build-up of hair can also cause blockages in drains and sewers. If left unchecked, this can worsen and will eventually block the drain completely. Make sure hair is removed from plugholes and drain covers/filters before it enters the drain.
Choked or blocked drainage can happen when foreign objects get caught in the drain. This could be items of food, wet wipes, sanitary products, nappies, items of clothing – or even toys.
Initially these items may not fully block the drain, but over time they will continue to collect other debris, which will prevent water from flowing freely and could cause a complete blockage.
Who is Responsible for Drain Jetting?
Property owners are generally responsible for their property’s drains, up to the property boundary. Beyond the property boundary is the responsibility of the supplier. You may have insurance cover for problems with drainage and should contact your insurer as soon as you are able to do so.
How to Report a Blocked Drain
If a drain is overflowing and the water has leaked into your property, you should contact your local water authority. They can help to advise you on what action you should take.
