As you are not there to keep an eye on what goes down your outdoor drainpipes you need to reduce the chances of them being obstructed through a little prep work. Anytime it is windy or there is a load of rain then a considerable amount of yard clutter can get washed down the drainpipes. Leaves and many other items can become caught preventing the water from flowing correctly. This will more often than not lead to blocked outdoor drains in Guildford.
Keeping the yard clean and consistently sweeping up any leaves will reduce the chances of a build-up in the drainpipes occurring. Rather than just binning the leaves you sweep up, you could start a compost stack instead.

Keeping the yard well-maintained and uncluttered will help protect against this happening.

They continued to see use throughout the 1970s before eventually being banned in the 1980s. Numerous older residential and commercial properties feature pitch fibre drains, and most of these buildings are now experiencing issues.
