What Causes Blocked Drains in Lancashire?
Although drainage systems are designed to resist all kinds of damage and ensure that your waste is disposed of, they can still become blocked. In most cases, this is due to the presence of unsuitable waste types. If a drainage system is required to deal with these wastes in large amounts, or on a regular basis, then they can quickly become blocked.
Having to deal with unsuitable waste is the most common cause of blocked drains across the UK. These materials can adhere to the inside of your drainpipes. It is common for these materials to capture other waste types as they pass by. This can lead to serious blockages which can develop quickly or over time.
Just some of the most hazardous materials that are commonly flushed down your drains include:
Food Waste, including:
- Solid Food Waste.
- FOG Waste (Fats, Oils and Greases).
- Hair and Dead Skin Cells.
- Kitchen Towels.
- Baby Wipes and Wet Wipes.
Although they aren’t designed to deal with these kinds of waste, almost every drainage system is still required to. These materials can easily cause blockages to develop in your drains.
Natural Causes of Blocked Drains for Lancashire Properties
In addition to unsuitable waste, there are several natural materials – or events beyond your control – which can cause blocked drains. Some of the natural blocked in your drains can include:
- Tree Root Intrusion.
- Rat and Vermin Infestation.
- Leaves, Mud and Natural Waste Build-Up.
These can all lead to serious blockages within your commercial or domestic drains. Infestations and tree root intrusions are extremely serious issues which will often require drain repairs, in addition to simple unblocking. The presence of leaves, mud or other natural substances can also be indicative of a serious problem. As such, these blockages need to be removed, your drains cleaned, and the cause investigated as soon as possible.
What are the Risks of Blocked Drains in Lancashire?
Any kind of drain blockage can lead to a range of problems. This often depends on the materials present in the blockages and its location within your system. These concerns can also be of varying severities, depending on the strength of the blockage. A total blockage, for example, will cause much more serious issues than a partial blockage. However, even partially blocked drains need to be resolved quickly.
