Can Blocked Drains Be Dangerous?
A clogged pipe might seem like a normal plumbing problem, but they can actually pose a number of risks to you and your family. If you suspect a blocked drain has occurred in your home, contact Hughes Plumbing Contractors right away.
Debris like grease and small objects can easily obstruct the flow of water in your pipes. If this happens, water may begin to stagnate. If this has happened, you’ll probably notice a foul smell in your drains. This isn’t an issue that will go away by itself or occur periodically – it will get worse. If this water overflows, it can damage the structural integrity of your home. It may also ruin your carpets, floorboards or furniture. It may even promote the growth of mildew or mould. Along with causing damage to your home, water from a drain blockage will attract pests like flies, mosquitos and maggots. This is the last thing you want in a family home in Kippa-Ring. These insects may also carry diseases and pose a threat to the health of your family.
