A blockage can occur at any time, and it’s never a good time when it does. Drains that are partially blocked will emit foul odours, and you’ll notice that water will drain slowly. If, however, you’ve spotted that the water is not draining at all, this is a sign that the drain is completely blocked. At 24hr Emergency Services, we can assist in unblocking all blocked drains. Alton customers will be spared the inconvenience of dealing with water damage which can commonly result from flooding caused by blockages.
Alton, blocked drains can occur for a whole host of reasons which we’ve listed in more detail below.
Often, blockages can start as minor issues that can quickly escalate if left unchecked. The cause of the problem, however, is usually determined by the location of the drain.
In kitchens, the main culprit is usually food debris, fat and grease. Independently, these can all be contributing factors, but together they guaranteed to result in blocked drains in Alton. Food debris becomes lodged, and fat and grease solidifies and congeals as it cools. These form a solid mass which is impassable preventing the flow of water.
Shower and sink drains are often blocked by hair and soap scum. Hair, in particular, can be prevented simply by attaching a drain guard over the plughole. Toilets are also a common complaint among those with blocked drains. Alton customers who place excessive amounts of toilet paper or hygiene products down the toilet will quickly find it becoming blocked.
Toilets are also a target of young children who have a tendency to try and flush foreign objects which then become stuck.
At 24hr Emergency Services, we can also assist with outdoor Alton blocked drains. These often become blocked because of rubbish blown in off the street or fallen branches and greenery that finds its way into the drainage system. Rodents can also be a cause as they can build their nests in pipes and are also highly destructive to the pipework itself.
