Preventative Maintenance to keep your drains clear

Beyond just unblocking drains, we provide guidance on simple preventive measures you can take to minimize future blockages. Preventive maintenance is key to avoiding recurring blockages.

5 Ways to keep drains unblocked

  • Use Drain Screens: Install drain screens or strainers in sinks, showers, and tubs to catch hair, soap scum, and debris before they enter the drain. Regularly clean and empty the screens.
  • Dispose of Grease Properly: Avoid pouring grease, fats, and cooking oils down the kitchen sink. Instead, let them cool and solidify, then scrape them into a sealed container and dispose of them in the trash.
  • Limit Food Debris: Scrape plates and utensils into the trash before washing dishes. Using a sink strainer can help catch food particles and prevent them from going down the drain.
  • Regular Hot Water Flush: Run hot water down your kitchen sink after each use to help dissolve and flush away grease and oil buildup.
  • Water Softeners: Hard water scale deposits are a common cause of blocked drains. These deposits build up in your drainage system over years of usage and can be prevented with water softener systems.

What causes drain blockage?

Drain blockages can stem from a variety of sources, often resulting from the accumulation of materials that hinder the smooth flow of water. Common culprits include hair, soap scum, food particles, grease, and even foreign objects inadvertently flushed down the drain.
Over time, these materials can build up, leading to clogs that slow down or completely obstruct the drainage system. Additionally, tree roots infiltrating underground pipes and mineral deposits can contribute to blockages. Regular maintenance and responsible disposal practices are essential to prevent drain blockages and ensure the efficient operation of your plumbing system.

How do I know if my drain is blocked?

Signs of a blocked drain include slow drainage, gurgling sounds, foul odours, water backup, or even flooding in extreme cases. If you notice water rising when you run the tap or flush the toilet, it could suggest a blockage downstream meanwhile, if water takes longer than usual to drain from sinks, showers, or tubs, it could indicate a blockage.

Can I use chemical drain cleaners to unblock drains?

Using chemical drain cleaners can provide a temporary solution for minor clogs, but they can also damage pipes and harm the environment. It’s recommended to opt for safer methods, like plunging or seeking professional help, especially for persistent or severe blockages.

How do I unblock the drain myself?

For minor clogs, you might be able to use a plunger or a drain snake. However, for stubborn or deep blockages, it’s best to consult a professional to avoid causing more damage.
