Identifying and preventing common clogging causes that create blocked pipes in drainage systems
Functional drainage systems are important to keep your property hygienic and your household or employees healthy. Annoying blockages are usually caused by either broken drains or clogged pipes. Here are some of the common reasons why Central Plumbing Wellington is called in to unblock drains and how to prevent it happening:
Bathrooms: Shower, basin and bath drains clog up when dirt, skin flakes and hair bind with soap scum on the pipe walls. Over time, the pipes become blocked as this debris accumulates and reduces water flow.
Try cleaning your bathroom fixtures regularly with environmentally friendly products. Did you know that pouring in white vinegar, followed by some baking powder, will instantly clear minor clogging in your bathroom drains? Done regularly, it's a great way to keep your pipes free of blockages and smelling fresh.
Kitchens: Sink drains typically clog up because cooking grease or oil becomes caked onto the pipe walls. If you add detergent soap scum and undissolved food particles to the mix (such as rice which expands in water), you end up with a stubborn, gunky clog that reduces water flow.
Prevention is better than cure, so deal with your used kitchen grease or oil by letting it set and then wrapping it in paper and disposing of it in the rubbish. Your food scraps are better off on the compost heap or else going into landfill. Again, try using the vinegar and baking soda method as part of your weekly house cleaning to keep kitchen drains clean and clear.
Toilets: Clogged toilets are a nasty business. They are usually caused by unflushable items that do not dissolve or break apart in water, for example:
- all types of pre-moistened wipes
- cotton-tipped swabs
- cotton make up cleansing pads
- contraceptive products
- dental floss
- feminine hygiene products
- miscellaneous items such as children’s toys
Not only do such items pollute the planet by ending up in waterways and the ocean, they can also cause untold damage to your drainage system. The best way to keep the natural environment and your sewers free of undisolvable waste is to dispose of such items in landfill instead. Cleaning your toilet regularly with non-toxic natural products also helps to keep water flowing smoothly. And of course only natural waste and paper that is readily dissolvable in water should go down there.
