Why Your Drains Are Blocked

May 28, 2020 2:11 pm


If you have ever gotten water up from a drain and there was an awful odour coming from it, you would probably understand that your drains are blocked. The smell is not just coming from the water, it is coming from the condition the pipe is in. So, when you are putting things you shouldn’t down the toilet or putting hair or even dried food down the toilet, it is going to get stuck, and it could actually make the situation worse. So, that is why your drains are blocked. How do you solve it?

The most important thing is not to try to fix it yourself as this could further compound the problem. Contact a professional, such as a Blocked Drains Bromley company at a site like https://www.3flowdrainage.co.uk/drainage-services/blocked-drains-london/blocked-drain-bromley

Another reason your drains are blocked is when you have a problem with tree roots. They can really suffocate your pipes and your drains. The reason they can eat at your pipes is because it of the constantly moist environment, that they actually start growing.

What you can do to solve this problem is by filling up the hole where the tree roots are eating at the pipe. But, if you have already filled up the hole, you will need to remove the tree roots and put a gravel base down the drain, after you have filled it back up again. You also want to use some burlap around the drain to help it hold its shape.
