By hiring a drain clearance specialist in Guildford!
The most common sign of a blocked drain? A horrible smell that just won’t go away. Combine that with a poor sink draining rate or water collecting in the shower and you can be sure you’ve got a blockage in your pipes somewhere.
But you’re in luck. ECS are drain cleaning experts in Guildford who provide emergency clearance for both internal and external drains.
Even better, it’s super easy to book in for your drain to get cleaned!
What causes a blocked drain?
External blockages are most often caused by:
- Leaf piles
- Storm activity and flooding
- Garden rubbish
- A runny mud build up
Internal drain blockages tend to be caused by:
- Grease collecting in the pipe
- Hair loss during washing
- Food waste from crockery that hasn’t been scraped or rinsed
Try to unblock your drain DIY before calling the pros
Clearing a blocked drain can be tricky. However, there are a few homemade fixes you can try.
Before calling out an expert, try this step by step guide first:
- Boil a full kettle
- Pour the contents down the affected drain
- Wait 10 to 15 minutes and then pour more water to test
If those fixes don’t work, you can mix a cleaner from the contents of your kitchen cupboards. You will need:
- 200g Bicarbonate of Soda
- 250ml Vinegar
- Mix the ingredients and pour into the drain
- Wait at least 15 minutes
- Boil a kettle of water and pour it down the drain too
You can try both methods on inside and outside drains alike.
If neither of these DIY fixes do the trick, the blockage is likely to be too big for a homemade solution.
But don’t worry – you’re not out of options yet!
