Common Causes of Blocked Drains
As we’ve mentioned before, blocked drains can be caused by a range of factors. Luckily, we’re able to work with all kinds of blocked Birmingham drains, finding the root cause of the problem and fixing it quickly and effectively.
Here are some of the most common causes of blocked drains in the home:
- Grease and fat from the kitchen – on the top of the list, blocked kitchen drains are caused by grease and fat building up in the drain. If you’re a fan of cooking, then there will be many times when you have rinsed the grease from the pain down the kitchen sink. The oil from the pain will eventually form into a solid in your drain, congealing in the drain and causing blockages.
- Hairs from bathroom sinks – hair is one of the most common causes of blocked bathroom drains. Whenever you wash your hair in the bath or shower, strands will inevitably find their way down the sink. This is especially the case for those who are blessed with longer tresses! These hairs can become trapped on other debris in the drain, entangling it and eventually blocking the drain.
- Foreign objects in toilets – we’ve all been there when you’ve dropped something like your phone in the toilet and accidentally flushed it. This is a surefire way to block your toilet and your drains since the drains connected to the toilet aren’t made to handle items like this. Not only can this cause blocked drains, but also unpleasant side effects for all. Time to call an expert plumber like MZR plumbing to solve the problem!
- Outdoor drains blocked by leaves and debris – often, the cause for blocked Birmingham drains can be caused by the great outdoors. This is particularly the case in Autumn when falling leaves and other plant debris can find their way into guttering drains. The decayed leaves will then eventually find their way into Birmingham drain systems, causing blockages.
With so many causes of blocked drains, it can sometimes be confusing to figure out who to call. Luckily, MZR Plumbing is able to assist with all of these common problems that occur with Birmingham drains.
