Often with the drains at your home or business, you won’t realise there is a problem present until too late and your drain inside or outside becomes blocked. Unfortunately the biggest problem with having a blocked drain is that it can cause further damage adding to the inconvenience.
If left unattended a blocked drain can cause flooding in kitchens, bathrooms indoors and outdoors from stormwater drains. In the worst case scenario it can flood into your overflow release gulley where your toilet waste will end up. Apart from the scenario having of flooding inside or outside, you will more than likely also lose the use of your toilet, shower and bathroom sinks, laundry sinks and kitchen sinks throughout your house or building.
Needless to say there are enough reasons for calling a professional plumbing company like Expert Plumbing Services at the first signs of a blocked drain.
An easy rule of thumb is don’t put anything except for water and non-toxic detergents (we are environmentally conscious!) down any sink or drain. Depending on their size and density, non-liquids may not suddenly block your drain but they can cause build up that over time will cause a blocked drain.
