Problems with clogged drains?

Blocked drains

If you’re suffering from a blocked drain system, our team here at Hampshire Drainage is on hand to help.

Blocked drains are one of the most common home maintenance issues. Sometimes, it will be easy enough to unblock drains yourself, but if you’re experiencing consistently blocked drains, you may need to hire professional help.

DIY drain unblocking can also cause damage to the pipework if done incorrectly, so it’s much safer to call in the experts.

At Hampshire Drainage, we know blocked drains can cause a whole array of issues – and not always during the 9-5 working window.

That’s why we offer all our customers a 24-hour blocked drain service, to help you get back to enjoying family time, no matter when a blockage strikes.

Let's investigate drain blockages

What causes a blocked drain?

A huge number of blockages can occur in your drains or the large sewer system due to people disposing of nappies, sanitary products, and general waste down the toilet.

However, another common cause is when grease, fat, and oils are poured down the sink.

Blockages can easily occur and can cause serious blockages for you and your neighbours this way. It can also occur if you typically push small food particles down the drain after washing up.

Preventative measures

What can you do to help prevent the blockage?

Of course, while our drain unblocking services are available 24/7, there are easy to ways to keep your drains in good working condition yourself. Below are some simple things to consider to ensure your drains stay unblocked:

Fluids etc

Dispose of kitchen fluids property. If you used a deep fryer or generally use a lot of oil while cooking, try to remove the grease or fat before washing up.

Strainers

Use a strainer in the plug. That way, you can wait for the water to drain away, pick up the strainer, and bin any food that’s been caught.

Flushing

Flush kitchen drains with hot water – build up in the kitchen sink can easily be removed with regular flushing. Pour clean, hot water down the drain once a week to prevent bacteria or residue from building up.
