Blocked drains are something that most of us don’t give a second thought to – until it happens to us. A problem with drainage can cause all sorts of problems – unpleasant smells, slow draining water and flooding, so if you have a problem with your drains, it is best to get a professional like Drainaway CCTV Drain Survey Gloucester based company to come and tackle the problem for you as soon as possible.

However, there are things that you can do to minimise the risks of drainage problems happening to you again…

In the kitchen – When it comes to the kitchen sink, it often has to endure a lot. Unfortunately, there are things that will cause the sink to become blocked over time or cause problems further down in the drainage system. Avoid putting oils and fats down the drain, as these are a huge contributor to drainage issues. It is also a good idea to have a sieve above the plughole or a guard to catch any food debris so that it doesn’t enter the plughole and block it.

In the bathroom – One of the big bathroom problems is hair. It is notorious for clogging the plughole. To reduce the risk of this problem, clear all hair out of the plughole every time the shower or bath has been used to prevent hair from building up. It is also important that the only thing that you put down the toilet is toilet roll – nothing else should be going into the toilet!
