Drains during colder months

As winter closes in and the temperature drops, its easy to start stressing about your drains. With this blog we’ll give you the best tips to keeping your drain in tip top shape throughout the colder months

As temperatures drop oil, fat and grease will harden in your pipes. Not only is a blockage an inconvenience, but it also comes with a cost! The easiest way to avoid any build up of oil, fat and grease is to pour it in a plastic bottle/tub and place it in the bin, however boiling the kettle and pouring it down your drain once a week will help soften them.

As well as oil, fat and grease, debris from leaves and branches can also cause blockages. Ensuring your gully guard is fully operational and clear should help prevent any unwanted debris falling into your drains. If you do find your drains are blocked, MZR have experienced engineers who will be able to remove the blockage and get you up and running at a competitive price.

With the above tips and making sure all exposed pipes are well insulated, you should be stress free. If that alone is not enough and you want complete peace of mind, call MZR to book a CCTV drain survey on 0121 663 1060.
