Blocked Drain


Experienced Drain Cleaners

Using cutting-edge electronic rotary drain-cleaning equipment, our team of experienced drain cleaners will unclog your clogged drain quickly and efficiently. We unclog sewer drains by removing obstructions such as tree roots, fats, and waste buildup, as well as internally descaling the pipe's circumference to remove any limescale deposits.

Reasons for Blocked Drains

Blocked Drains from Hair

We’ve seen it all before, you're about to take a shower and discover that your bathtub is clogged with hair. Most times it’s an easy job to simply remove the hair, but if it’s not cleared up straight away it can cause a lot of problems down the line.

It’s important to remove the hair before it enters the drain pipes and becomes clogged.

Blocked Drains from Plants and Dirt

Natural debris such as trees, shrubs, dirt, and leaves can clog water drains, especially after spring and autumn.

Leaves aren’t the only culprit, roots from trees are notorious for growing underneath in search of water and as a result, can crack your drain pipes beneath your house.

Grease Build-up

Grease and fat, like hair in the shower, will accumulate in the kitchen sink over time.

These fatty substances are a very common cause of blocked drains and pipes and can be difficult to remove.

Any grease or fatty substance that is washed down the sink will stick to the inside of the pipes and slowly build up to the point that no liquid will pass through.

Grease that’s washed down the drain will cool and harden in the pipes. It’s important to be aware that this grease doesn’t leave the pipes as easily as you would expect.

Blocked Drains from Nappies and Baby Wipes

Nappies and baby wipes are the two common problem items known to block drains after being flushed down the toilet.

These items become immersed with water, they absorb the moisture and enlarge, quickly blocking access to water drains and pipes.

Heavy Rain and Storms

When there is an overflow of rainwater in gutters and downpipes, there’s a good chance there’s a blockage which needs to be cleared out.

Blocked Drains Caused by Foreign Objects

Things that can be quickly dropped into the drain, such as children's toys, soap, food build-up, sanitary products, electronic waste, and other foreign materials, are likely to clog eventually.

For this reason, certain items should not be flushed or washed down the drain, whether deliberately or accidentally.
