Blocked drains: Three causes that can turn the situation from worse to worst

What can be a bigger inconvenience for you than a drain which is blocked? A blocked drain can cause discomfort beyond levels of imagination, hampering the normal lifestyle of the people who are occupying the property. There can be appalling incidents such as the water in the toilet overflowing while flushing. To add to the water logging is an unbearable stench which can cause health hazards too.

Here are the main reasons behind the phenomenon of drain blockage and blocked toilets:


One of the main contributors for blockage in sinks and pipelines is grease, which sticks to the walls of the pipes. With time, the layers of the grease thickens which makes water to pass through the pipe, extremely difficult. When you encounter this problem, emergency draining is your solution.

Natural phenomena:

During autumn, leaves fall off the trees and can easily accumulate in the pipes resulting in blocking of drains. It is therefore important to ensure that leaves are collected from your premises and disposed off properly in the garbage. Roots of trees are also reasons for blocked drains. Roots are normally attracted to moisture and will move towards the pipes which carry the waste-water. One of the inevitable consequences of this is cracked pipes, which further augments the problem of blocking of drains.

Bigger things:

There can be things which are bigger in size obstructing the free flow of water. This is the reason why you need a CCTV drain survey to look inside the cavity of the drains. These gadgets can detect minute problems right inside the drain pipes, which otherwise go unnoticed by the naked eye.
