BLOCKED DRAIN – BIGGER PROBLEMS

blocked drain

Water and plumbing blockages are never fun. But the impacts of these often cause a bigger headache than the initial fault. So if you ever suspect you have drain or pipe blockages – the best idea is to have it looked at by the best professional plumber in your area.

But what are the actual results of blockages? In your immediate area as well as in the broader storm water drainage network?

SMELL AND SLOW DRAINAGE

In your home – Your first indication of a blocked drain or pipe is usually an awful smell or slow drainage. Smells are usually an indication that water is not flowing freely and could range from a strong smell of stagnant water to a smell of sewerage. In addition, water pushing back into the drain, not moving, or bubbling up are also good indications.

STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY OF YOUR HOME

Serious drain blockages could damage your drainage system and eventually the structure of your home. If left untreated, flooding can result inside the home structure, damaging floors and walls. It’s always a good idea to check your building insurance policy – you might spot a clause stating that damage will not be covered if it’s the result of regular maintenance not being performed. So get an expert plumber in your area to have a look the moment you spot a problem.

HEALTH IMPLICATIONS

Blocked drains can have an impact on your health, particularly if you’re susceptible to allergies. Stagnant and dirty water carries bacteria which could also worsen asthma.

MOULD AND PESTS

When floors and walls get wet, mildew and mould soon follow. Nothing should grow on your walls – it’s bad for your health. The stagnant water outside is also the perfect breeding ground for mosquitos.
