Drain

As modern day humans, using plumbing is an integral part of our lives. Pipes carry in warm water for our baths, cool water for us to drink, and clean water to wash our garments with. Separate pipes carry away tarnished water for our safety. An unfortunate consequence of this reliance on plumbing is having to deal with clogged drains, which can lead to poor drainage and unpleasant smells.

What Is Clogging My Drain?

Potential culprits of a clogged indoor drain include:

  • Hair
  • Soap
  • Dirt
  • Food waste
  • Small objects
  • Toilet roll buildup

Outdoor drains can be clogged by:

  • Dirt
  • Rubbish
  • Tree roots
  • Debris washed in via rain

You can attempt home remedies to unblock your drains. Baking soda and vinegar, drain rods, and clearing the blockage manually may work temporarily but there isn’t a guarantee that your blockage is wholly resolved.

If you find your outside drain blocked in Solihull, you will need expert service to remedy the clog. An efficient, timely remedy is needed when unblocking outdoor drains as they can quickly flood the surrounding area. Trust a member of the National Association of Drainage Contractors if home remedies do not work or the problem is too grand.

What Do Drainage Contractors Do?

Drainage technicians don’t just unclog drains. They also provide important services such as drain repair and installation. Some companies also conduct underground surveys to ensure that your pipes meet Water Research Council Standards. Topographical surveys are also completed to guide technicians on how your property’s elevation and slope impact drainage.
