Blocked drains can occur at any time and the drain doesn’t need to have been damaged for this to happen. When it does, the inconvenience caused to homeowners cannot be overstated. In minor cases, it can make living conditions most unpleasant and in serious cases can even render a home uninhabitable. Fortunately, determining the problem has never been easier courtesy of CCTV drain surveys Brighton can rely on to get to the root of the problem fast.
Why is this method so much quicker, you ask? Well, in the past if a drain became blocked the only course of action available was to excavate the pipe. This was usually done without knowing precisely where the blockage was, thereby, making a precision excavation of the effected pipe virtually impossible. This process would be costly and highly disruptive, but with Brighton CCTV drain surveys, these inconveniences are largely a thing of the past.
Any delays can cause further damage to occur further exacerbating the situation and driving up the overall cost. Therefore, if you suspect that a blockage is present it’s vital that you call us right away. Continue reading to find out more information about what causes a blockage to occur and how we can assist with the most effective CCTV drain surveys Brighton can offer.
There are many factors which can attribute to a blocked drain, and these include:
Hair is most commonly found by our team when conducting CCTV drain surveys. Brighton drains which aren’t protected from a build-up of hair become blocked when grease and other substances mix with the hair to form a clog. Drain guards are an excellent preventative measure as these will catch most hair before it finds its way into the pipework.
Bars of soap are commonly made using grease or fat. As a result, soap ends up having the same impact on your drains as fats and greases do on your kitchen drains. These greases and fats combine with minerals in the water forming soap scum which is a hard residue. This residue builds up eventually creating a blockage.
In addition to grease and fat, every effort should be made to avoid putting any food waste down your drains. Even tea leaves and coffee grounds should be disposed of in a nearby bin. Any food waste should always be scraped into a food waste bin before washing the plate up. Fats and greases should be disposed of using a glass jar or metal food can. If food waste has found its way into the pipes, our CCTV drain surveys in Brighton can easily diagnose the problem.
On occasion, objects might end up being flushed that shouldn’t be. These can include toys, keys and other items that might fall into mischievous hands. These objects will often remain lodged requiring professional intervention. This cause is not always immediately apparent, however, necessitating one of our CCTV drain surveys. Brighton should call us right away if they suspect a foreign object has been placed down into a drain.
Even something as simple as too much toilet paper can trigger a blockage, and certain wipes will also become lodged. These should be disposed of in a waste disposal bin. It goes without saying, but nappies should never be flushed down the toilet as these will become lodged.
When faced with the potential for blocked drains it’s always worth considering the location in which you live. Aspects of the both the environment and topography can greatly exacerbate the problem further. If an issue does occur, there are usually fairly obvious signs which are usually very easy to detect. Such problems that’ll necessitate one of our Brighton CCTV drain surveys include:
