St Ives Blocked Drains




What not to do with blocked drains

So you’ve discovered blocked drains! You may want to throw a cleaning agent down the drain to try and get rid of the cause, but in most cases it won’t go away that easily.

Don’t ignore the odours. Whatever is preventing the water or sewage flow is not likely to miraculously disappear.

It is recommended to definitely NOT attempt to clear it your self using something invasive. That will most likely lead to more serious problems like perforation of the wall that is far more expensive to fix than a simple blockage.

Don’t get an amateur in to have a look. They may be cheaper in the short term but not necessarily in the long term. Make sure the person you call has experience and is a fully qualified professional. Check their license and credentials so you know you don’t have a cowboy (or girl) on the job.

While you may not want to pay for a professional to come and have a look, it is highly advisable you do so to avoid headaches down the track.

Once the problem is fixed, ask about drain filters and educate your family or workers about what can and can’t go down the drain because as you know, prevention is far better, and cheaper, than a cure.
