What Causes Blocked Drains?

Many things can leave drains and or a toilet blocked, ranging from small objects to large debris. Some of the most common items that can cause a blockage include:

  • Hair: This is one of the most common reasons to unblock drains. Hair can become tangled around objects in the drain, causing a build-up that eventually leads to a blockage.
  • Soap scum: Another common culprit, soap scum can build up over time and create a barrier that prevents water from flowing freely through the drain.
  • Grease and oil: Cooking grease and oil can solidify when they cool, leading to a clog. Even small amounts of grease can cause problems over time.
  • Food: Small bits of food can fall into the drain and cause a blockage. This is especially true of starchy or sticky foods like pasta, rice, and cereal.
  • Toilet paper: Too much toilet paper can lead to a clog, especially if it’s not flushed frequently enough.
  • Paper towels: Like toilet paper, paper towels can cause a blockage if they’re not flushed regularly.
  • Diapers: Disposable diapers and baby wipes should never be flushed down the toilet as they can cause a serious blockage in your drains.

How to Prevent Clogging your Drains?

We highly recommend monitoring what goes down your drains as the wrong material can cause a severe blockage. Any such products and/or materials that could cause blocked drains are better off discarded in the garbage pile. Moreover, it is vital to regularly keep an eye on your drainage system to ensure it is running as efficiently as possible.

A good practice to follow is to consistently run checks on your drains by running water and inspecting how quickly or slowly it might be going down the drain. If it takes too long to drain, then it might indicate your drains are becoming blocked. However, it is essential to note that prevention methods might not always work, and specialists, such as a blocked drain plumber, may be needed to resolve the problem.

How to Unblock Your Drains?

Unclogging your drains can be messy and time-consuming, especially if you have other errands on hand. Keeping a plunger on hand is recommended to help you dislodge the contents of a blocked drain to try and extract the blockage. However, this might not always be effective and only temporarily improve drainage conditions.

In such a case, it is advisable to contact a professional blocked drain plumber to sort out the issue as they can recognise the problem areas at a quicker rate and are knowledgeable on how to efficiently resolve the blockage.
