Common Problem with Drains
Drains are one of the most critical parts of your home’s water system. Blocked drains are a very common problem in the household, and solving it can be very exhausting and time consuming. Often leading to a very messy and expensive clean up, blocked drains can occur in the kitchen, bathroom, toilet or your bathtub. Being aware of what causes blockage in the first place is the best course of action for prevention. Some of the most likely causes are fats, oils, grease, hair, toys, canister tops and food remnants.
With solid items such as toys or fragments of plastic and glass, it is somewhat obvious how a drain ends up clogged. With fat, oil and grease, however, blockage occurs differently. As these hot liquids become cooler, they start to solidify, and can cling to the insides of pipes. They eventually build up or even completely block pipes. If something blocks wastewater, and it can’t flow freely through pipes and out into the sewer system, it can come back up. This brings about unsanitary conditions and damages that can be expensive to repair. Following the guidelines below gives you the best chance in avoiding repeated repairs and unnecessary disruptions to residences and businesses.
One of the easiest ways for you to unblock drains without calling a plumber is to use a specialised chemical product. Drain cleaners are chemical products that are used to prevent a variety of plumbing problems such as blocked drains sewer pipes. The term drain cleaners can also be used for persons who use chemical or mechanical drain cleaners to fix clogged drains.
Drain cleaners can be divided in two basic categories—chemical and mechanical. If you have blocked kitchen sinks, toilets, tubs or shower drains, use a drain cleaner first. What it does is clear soft obstructions such as hair and grease that usually accumulate close to drain openings. Chemical drain cleaners, plungers, handheld drain augers, air burst drain cleaners and home remedy drain cleaners are highly recommended in dealing with typical causes of blocked drains.
If multiple plumbing parts are clogged, your most practical solution is using a drain cleaner that easily removes both soft and hardened obstructions over the whole length of the drain, starting from the drain opening through the main sewer drain to the lateral piping. Electric drain cleaners and sewer jitters are usually used in these cases.

Signs of blocked drains:
There are a few major signs that can indicate sewer pipe clogging as well as overdue cleaning for plumbing installations. If you notice any of the following signs, call our team. Trust us, in many cases a simple phone call is all you need to solve blocked drain issues such as:

If you notice any of these signs, this can probably mean that your drains are obstructed by a considerable amount of waste and that your installations have drastically reduced capacity of “swallowing” drainage water.
