How do you know if you have a blocked drain?
A bad smell is an early warning signal of a blocked drain but then you may notice that a toilet is slow to drain or there is sewage lying on top of a manhole. You may hope that the drain sorts itself out but in all likelihood, it won’t. So it is best to call D&J Drains as soon as you spot any signs of a blocked drain.
Why are my drains blocked?
Just like any aspect of your home or business, drains can be more susceptible to damage or blockages the older they are. Sometimes it is a build-up of grease and food waste which has been washed down sinks which leads to a build up of dirt. Another common problem is flushing kitchen roll or baby wipes down the toilet (as in the photos below). Wipes and kitchen roll can get stuck in the drains and can lead to a nasty blockage. Tree roots, pipe corrosion or subsidence are other possible causes too.
But whatever the cause, do not fear for our highly trained and experienced engineers have come across many different problems with drains over the last 30 years. Using their high pressure water jetting equipment, our team will break down hardened fat or grease to get your drain unblocked quickly. Sometimes we will also suggest that a CCTV survey is carried out too just to understand exactly what is happening in your drains. An engineer will feed a special camera into your drains to see what the problem is. In some cases, your house insurance may cover the cost of more serious damage to your drains.
Can I fix a blocked drain myself?
Definitely not! Unblocking drains is a job for professionals and we highly recommend that you never attempt to unblock your own drains using chemicals. Pouring chemicals down a pipe is not only harmful to the environment but can also damage your drainage system itself by weakening or corroding pipes.
