What are the common signs of a blocked drain?

Blocked drains can cause a range of issues in your home. Common signs include slow drainage, unpleasant odours, gurgling sounds, and water backups in sinks or toilets.

If you notice these symptoms, your pipes are likely clogged. Ignoring the problem can lead to more serious issues like sewer backups and potential damage to your property.

How long does it take to fix a blocked drain?

Fixing a blocked drain depends on various factors, such as the severity of the blockage, location, and accessibility to the affected area. In most cases, our experienced team can efficiently repair a blocked drain within one to two hours. However, complex cases involving extensive sewage blockage removal may require additional time for thorough inspection and repair.

Can a blocked drain cause damage to my plumbing system?

When a drain is clogged, water and waste cannot flow freely, increasing pressure within the pipes. This pressure can cause leaks, burst pipes, or even structural damage to your plumbing system. Unclogging drains promptly is crucial to prevent further harm.

What happens if the blocked drains are left untreated?

If blocked drains are left untreated, it can lead to many problems. Firstly, the water flow in your plumbing system will be severely impacted, causing slow draining or complete backups. This can result in unpleasant odours and unhygienic conditions. Additionally, the increased pressure caused by plumbing obstructions can lead to burst pipes or leaks, resulting in costly repairs and potential water damage to your property.

When should I call a professional plumber for a blocked drain?

If you are dealing with a blocked drain, several signs suggest it’s time to contact a professional plumber, especially for emergency drain clearance.

  • Firstly, if you notice multiple drains in your home clogged simultaneously, it could indicate a more serious underlying issue.
  • Secondly, if you have already attempted common DIY methods like plunging or using chemical drain cleaners without success, you should seek professional assistance.
  • Moreover, foul odours emanating from drains or gurgling sounds can also be warning signs.

How often should you unblock your drains?
