What Kinds Of Blocked Drains Occur in Margate?
Hughes Plumbing Contractors have been working in Margate for years. In this time, we’ve seen all kind of blockages caused by a variety of things. Blocked toilets are particularly common, and they are easily avoidable most of the time. Putting items like nappies and sanitary pads in the bin instead of down the toilet will help you avoid toilet clogs.
Shower and bathtub clogs in Margate are a frequent issue our customers have. Build-up of hair and soap in your pipes will quickly and easily lead to blockages. You should aim to install a screen over your drain and minimise the amount of soap you use.
Stormwater drain blockages are more common in summer. As we all know, South East Queensland gets some massive storms in the later months of the year. Although thunderstorms are an iconic part of Margate summers, they can unexpectedly lead to stormwater drain blockages. The heavy winds of storms can send leaves, sticks and stones all around your backyard, and rain will wash these items into your stormwater drains. Keeping your gutters clear of garden debris is also a great way to avoid these blockages.
Kitchen sinks are often subjected to a lot of abuse. Fat, grease and food scraps are often washed down the sink without a second thought. If this keeps happening, you’ll eventually experience a stubborn and smelly blockage. Remember to put these items and substances in the bin when you can!
