Unblocking a Kitchen Sink or Bathroom Sink
It’s likely the original drain unblocking was not completely successful.
Long term build up of an obstruction in the pipework can be difficult to completely clear unless treated by experienced drainage engineers.
There could still be the partial remains of waste materials in more than one location or deep within the drainage system.
Fat – the N0.1 reason for drain blockages – is caused by cooking and frying oils emptied down the kitchen sink. Over time, the oils form thick sticky fat deposits that build up and obstruct the pipework.
Wet wipes – now also a major cause of blocked drainage systems. In a very short period of time the materials stick to each other and other substances, including fat, to quickly cause a clogged pipe.
Further drain blockages can also be caused via the kitchen sink by food and drink waste, including coffee grounds
Why are my drains blocked?
Your drains may have recently been “cleaned” once but the problem has returned! Once again you may be experiencing:
- A foul smell
- Blocked sinks
- Overflowing toilet
Why unblocking drains is a priority!
Besides the bad smell, sewage in your garden or outside of your property is clearly a health hazard. But a blocked drain is one that is under pressure which leads to damage to the drain lining or structure.
