One of the main reasons why the drainage around your home compound is because there are some blocked drains. There are so many things that may result in the blocked drains. However, it is very easy for the people living in a house to prevent the blocked drains since at the time you are the people who bring out this problem. It is also challenging for you to stop your drains from blocking unless you know the causes of the blocked drains. The following are some of the causes of blocked drains in most homes in the Gold Coast:
In most of the homes, people will drop pieces of soaps either in the bathroom and sinks after they are done with cleaning or bathing. With time the small pieces of soap will accumulate and then form a huge lump of soap that will block your drains.
The other thing that causes blocked drains is hair. Hair can be either from humans or pets. Most of the people will shave their hair from the bathroom and then clean the bathroom, thereby main the hair flow through the bathroom pipes. This, therefore, can lead to blockage of drains. In case you are used to shaving your hair from the bathroom or your pet hair breaks regularly, you should make sure that you fit your bathroom with guards that can catch the hair preventing the hair from blocking the drains.
3. Food refuse
Other people will pour their kitchen refuse or wastes in the sinks as they wash their utensils. Some of this refuse won’t drain with the water, and hence with time, they will block your drains. The best thing to do is to make sure that you have a pit or dustbin where you can dispose of your food refuse instead of pouring it in the sinks.
When dirt accumulates in your drains, at times, they clog, and hence this makes your pipes to block. This is why you should avoid having so much dirt in your drains.
5. Roots of trees
The pipes that you have under your house can have small cracks where the roots can begin growing. When the roots grow bigger and bigger, with time, the roots will occupy all the space that is in the drainage pipes making them block.
6. Toilet paper
Some people will complain that their toilets are not flushing, but they may not know why. One of the reasons as to why your bathroom will refuse to flush is because some tissue papers have joined up, thereby clogging your toilet pipes. In case such a thing happens, you will need to make sure that you have used a plunger that can shift and dissolve some of the clogged tissue paper, reducing the size of the clog. This will allow the rest of the tissue to flow working on your drainage.
