A blocked sink in your kitchen or bathroom can become a real nightmare. Food rinds, oils and dental products can all be leading causes of blocked sinks. We usually find the main cause of a blocked kitchen sink are grease, oil and food matter building up on the walls of the pipes which restrict the flow and ultimately lead to severe blockages. We find the leading causes of a blocked bathroom sink / blocked shower drain are dirt, a build-up of soaps and hair. All of these congest the pipes and slow their flow leading to blockages. If your drains are regularly blocked, the problem could lie with the way your drains were designed and installed. If this is the case, our team of qualified plumbers have a wealth of experience and can offer you expert advice. so you can rest assured we’ll have your problem fixed in no time at all.
Stopping Future Blockages
Once we’ve unblocked your sinks/toilets the best way to keep them clear are too
- Not pour oils/grease down your sink, these should be disposed of in the bin
- Resist flushing wet wipes. Even if the packet states they are flushable wet wipes are a leading cause of blocked toilets, drains and sewers.
- Clean bathroom and kitchen plugholes regularly to remove dirt, debris and hair.
