To ensure that your outdoor drains in Farringdon remain clear of any obstruction, regular garden maintenance strongly advised. Let’s be honest, most outdoor drains are blocked by greenery or litter that is washed or blown into the drains during bad weather. Leaves and other items can become caught preventing water from passing through the pipes.
Keeping the backyard clean by frequently sweeping up any leaves will reduce the chances of a blocked drains in Farringdon from occurring.
Rather than just binning the leaves you sweep up, you could begin a compost pile.

Pitch fibre drains were first introduced in the 1960s as an affordable alternative to clay drainpipes. Their popularity peaked in the 1970s but these pipes were eventually banned in the 1980s as they did not conform to building regulations. Countless older properties feature pitch fibre drains in Farringdon and with a life expectancy of just 40 years; many are now experiencing issues.
These drains were built out of wood pulp and bitumen. While affordable to make, these drainpipes lacked the strength and durability of clay constructed options leading to many issues developing such as ovaling and delamination. Whenever drainpipes end up misshapen, as occurs with pitch fibre drains in Farringdon over time, water will be unable flow efficiently and the water pipes become blocked.
Property damage as a result of damaged pipework is a serious issue. Water logged foundations can cause subsidence to occur which can threaten the structural integrity of a building.

Over the years, our team have seen it all and have encountered every possible known cause for blocked drains in Farringdon. From bathroom sinks to toilets, kitchen sinks and outdoor drains, the causes are numerous and usually specific to the location of the blockage.
For instance, blocked drains that occur in the bathroom are usually always a result of toiletries, nappies and other hygiene products being flushed when they shouldn’t be. Occasionally, blockages, usually in toilets, can result from children flushing toys and stuffed animals.
If the drainpipe is outdoors, the trouble is commonly brought on by nearby trees. This is usually due to the roots of the plant going through the pipeline and causing cracks or blockages to appear. Alternatively, the presence of roots inside the pipework can also cause other objects to snag making the problem worse.
Many things can cause an internal drainpipe to become blocked. These include but are not limited to sanitary towels, toilet paper, food waste, fat, oil and hair.
When the water in the sink will not drain away and begins to smell this is a pretty good sign it is blocked. Clearing your blocked drains in Farringdon is a job best left to the professionals. To request a callout from 24 Hour Emergency Services, call us today on 020 7411 9621.
