Common Causes of Blocked Drains
Blocked drains can be a nuisance, but if caught and dealt with early on they are relatively easy to fix and you might be able to avoid more serious leaks, overflows or electrical damage which can sometimes occur.
There are different factors to consider when looking at the cause of a blocked drain, including:
Is your drain indoors or outside?
If your drain is outside it will most likely have been caused by a build-up of dead leaves, or even tree roots which can find their way into pipes and cause a barrier to the flow of water. If it’s an indoor blockage, it could have occurred because of heavy materials or objects being flushed down into the drain. Blocked drains are often caused by sanitary products, paper towels or other hard to flush materials which can clog pipes and obstruct drains. Wipes, tissues, and even hair can also be the culprits.
Is it a kitchen, bathroom or toilet drain?
As above, if blocked drains in the toilet or bathroom are a problem, it’s usually due to the items you flush down your toilet. If on the other hand, if it’s a kitchen drain that is blocked, it could be because of food particles, grease and other debris which is washed into the pipes from your kitchen sink or washer. These can cause significant blockages which may require a professional drainage engineer.
