What Health Risks Can Blocked Drains Lead To?

Fixing blocked drains as quickly as possible will help to avoid damage to your house and unneeded health hazard to yourself and your family. Just as the human body has methods of removing waste efficiently, so does your house. If these methods are blocked, in humans it causes digestion issues, colds, flus and allergic reactions. In our houses, waste water that can’t make its way out of your home easily causes the waste water to return back into your drinking water supplies, bacteria to start growing, insects to accumulate, dampness and/or swelling in walls and foundations in your home. This will eventually affect your home’s structural integrity and lead to cracks in the wall.


What Are The Signs Of Blocked Drains?


The early signs of a blocked drain to watch out for are:


  • unpleasant smells
  • water beginning too slow
  • the water in the toilet getting sucked back after it is flushed

What Are The Different Kinds Of Blocked Drains?

Blocked toilet drains can be a result of baby wipes, sanitary items, fabrics and other items being flushed down the toilet. It’s imperative that you talk to your family or other members of your household about the potential causes of blocked toilets and ensure that they dispose of rubbish properly.

Waste like oil, soaps and food scraps are the primary cause for blocked drains. Oils and fats are best disposed of firstly into a jar, then into the garbage. Also, you should be using proper waste plugs in your drain so food scraps can be collected properly and disposed of into a bin.

The main causes for a blocked laundry drain are hair and detergent. Hair and soap from the washing machine compile over time and cause blockages in the pipes. Cleaning and properly maintaining the washing machine filter on a regular basis is advised.

Showers can very easily get blocked as a result of shampoo, soap, hair and a variety of other substances. Although use of some of these products is inevitable, you should at least try to remove hair from the drain so other waste can flow through clearly.

Garden debris, tree root growth and dirt all quickly gather in your storm water system and can prevent the drains from diverting storm water from your home. Even small fractures in pipes can entice tree root growth which can quickly turn into a major blockage that is expensive to fix.

Storm water can also find its way into the foundations of your home and cause fractures in your roof, floors or walls. The best preventative action to take against blocked storm water drains is to have your gutters cleaned at the beginning of winter each year.
