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
