Common Causes of Blocked Drains and How a Service Can Help

Blocked drains are a frequent household nuisance, often resulting from accumulated hair, grease, soap residues, foreign objects, and mineral build-up. Over time, these materials coalesce, restricting water flow and leading to unpleasant odours or even backups. A professional drain cleaning service employs specialized tools and techniques, such as CCTV drain inspections and hydro jetting, to identify and clear blockages efficiently, restoring your drainage system to optimal function.

Identifying the Signs of Blocked Drains

It’s crucial to recognize the early signs of blocked drains to prevent more severe and costly issues. Common indicators include slow water drainage, gurgling sounds from the drain, unpleasant odours emanating from the drain, and recurrent clogs. If these symptoms are ignored, they can lead to complete blockages or even damage to the drainage system, emphasizing the importance of timely intervention.

    Importance of Cleaning Drains

    All drains do not function in the same way, and their cleaning methods differ. Store-bought chemicals may not be the best choice for drain cleaning. Chemicals are hazardous to the environment and humans, and they may exacerbate the clog. Always use a licensed plumber for drain cleaning, unlicensed plumbers can cause more harm than good to your sewer system. Professionals like Swell Emergency Plumbing should be called if a drain is slow draining or blocked. 

    Over time kitchen sink waste pipes get a build up of fat, grease and food which causes the sink to drain slowly. Eventually it will block up completely, rather than wasting money on drain chemicals which is a very temporary solution at best, put that money towards getting the waste pipe cleared and cleaned properly with the correct equipment.

    Understanding the Common Causes of Blocked Drains

    Several factors might cause drains to get clogged. Everyday culprits include hair strands that accumulate over time, soap scum that sticks to pipe walls, cooking grease and oils that solidify within the pipes, and foreign objects accidentally flushed or dropped into drains. Additionally, external factors like tree roots intruding into sewer lines or mineral build-up can also obstruct water flow. Understanding these common causes is the first step in proactive prevention and timely maintenance.

    Swell Irrigation uses modern water jetting and rodding equipment to successfully clear a wide range of blockages from drainage systems, eliminating the need for replacements and excavation. High pressure water jetting and, traditional method of rodding through the blockage, completely clears the pipe of all blockages, rather than simply making an opening that can close over again as time passes, we scale the internal pipe walls. Our specialists can also detect grease blockages and clear blocked toilet or shower drains in the most efficient manner.

    Why Hire A licensed Drain Cleaner?

    Why Drains Get Blocked?

    Grease and fat are the most common causes of blocked drains, but they are also the easiest to avoid. Food residues and soaps that are washed down the drain are the primary sources of fatty and grease material. As the dirty water drains, the fatty and greasy matter solidifies and, due to their sticky properties, adheres to the pipe walls to form a mortar that is difficult to remove. 

    Hair may appear to be too delicate to cause a major blockage, but its build-up can be a major issue for homeowners. If you are used to shaving in the bathroom and then washing your hair down the drain, this could be the source of your persistent clogs. Hair blockages typically become tough after mixing with grease and fat. If you have trees on your property, especially along the sewer line, you are likely to have blocked drains on a regular basis. This, combined with an aged drain system, can result in blocked drains. Don’t hesitate to give us a call regarding your drainage issue!
