Blocked drains can be very inconvenient to everyone in your household; however, after unblocking, it’s vital you know just how to avoid any reoccurrence. In order to prevent drain blockages in future, you’ll need to know what can be poured down the sink and what should be disposed of by other means. Solid food, grease, cooking fat and meat juices are just some of the common culprits of blocked drains. Avoid the temptation to pour hot oil, fat or grease down the sink; instead, allow any of these to cool and solidify, then dispose of properly. The same applies to solid food and other non liquid substances.

Also, ensure your drain strainer is always plugged in to help separate the tiny bits of solid from any liquid that should go down the sink.

One of the most common problems households face is blocked drains. This can happen as a result of several factors, including build up of waste or damaged pipes. Sometimes, clogged and blocked drains clear up naturally as a result of the pressure of water flowing through the pipes; however, there are times when you’ll need an expert to handle your blocked drains. You can tell your drains are blocked if:

  • Your sinks and toilets begin to overflow
  • You notice a strange sulphurous smell around your drains
  • You hear gurgling and choking sounds coming from sinks, showers and toilets
