Your drains are one of the most important elements of your house. You might think that the roof is important or that the walls are essential and whilst they are they are relatively easy to fix. However the drains not working properly can give you a world of pain and unpleasant smells if they are not kept up to date and well maintained.
This is why it is imperative that you use a Drainage Cleaning Company who will come in and use CCTV to see what is causing any issues with the drainage system. It’s probably a good idea to do this straight away rather than wait for a problem to occur.
The most common issue that cleaning companies find is that people have flushed something that they should not have done. The most popular culprits for this are usually nappies and wet wipes. Wet wipes are a nightmare as unlike toilet paper they do not break down in water and remain solid. Nappies are absorbent so they will take in even more moisture and expand.
From a food point of view it is clear that fat is the main problem here. Warm and hot fat is easy to chuck down the drain. You would think that once it’s gone it’s problem solved but fat soon cools and it becomes a glutinous mass that sets and does not flush away easily. It’s one of the most celebrated issues with drains. One “fatberg” in Greater London was reckoned to be as large as a double deck bus.
