It is wise to keep the numbers of professional drain unblockers in your contact list. At some point, you may need to deal with overflowing drains, blocked toilets, rat infestations, or slow-draining sinks.
If you see signs of a blocked drain, always contact emergency drain service. These signs include slow draining sinks, baths, or showers; bad smells from drains; and high water levels in toilets and basins. Many people attempt to clear blocked drains with natural or chemical remedies–but this can be dangerous for your pipes. Using chemical drain cleaners will often result in even bigger problems later on.
If your outside drain is overflowing, you should get in touch with your local drainage expert immediately. There are two reasons we wouldn’t recommend trying to fix the issue yourself.
- If a blocked drain is the result of work beyond your responsibility, you won’t have to pay for the repair and unblocking services.
- In addition, your home’s drain system was installed when the house was built. The interior piping is easily accessible, but the outside systems might be buried deep underground. Your local drain unblockers will have access to special equipment to deal with deep, underground systems and will get the job done quickly.
If your drain is already experiencing some minor signs of being blocked, such as slow draining or bad smells, it’s time to pick up the phone and call your local drainage company.
