Blocked Drains in Hertfordshire
The most common symptoms of having a blocked drain is poor water flow and overflowing around your gullies. This can result in an awful pungent smell that lingers around your drains and inspection chambers. If your neighbours aren’t affected, then your property is likely the source; therefore, the responsibility of removal lies with you. But blocked drains are more than just an annoyance, they can also cause structural damage and health problems, and the longer you ignore them the worse they’ll get. That’s why it’s best to call out a professional straight away.
Facts about Drain Blockages in Hertfordshire
The vast majority of drain blockages are caused by foreign objects. Simply learning what you can and can’t flush down your toilets and sinks will significantly minimise your risk.
– Sanitary towels, nappies, tampons, cotton buds, bandages, plasters and wet wipes should all be bagged and binned rather than flushed down the toilet. Out-of-date medicines, syringes and needles should be taken to your nearest hospital for proper disposal.
– 75% of all blockages could be avoided if everybody disposed of grease and oil correctly. Pour or scrape greasy or oily food waste into a container, wait for it to cool, and then place it in your food bin.
– Over 3,000 homes are flooded each year due to blockages caused by fat, grease and oil. This costs the UK economy over £15 million and can cause closures of wastewater pumping stations.
Start implementing the correct disposal procedures and you’ll help the environment and reduce your maintenance bills.
