How we can help with your blocked drain in Sheffield

First it is most important to ensure that the cause of the problem is within your property boundary. We would usually find this with our cctv drainage survey. If we find that the blockage is within your property boundary then we will provide a quote with details of the work required there and then. If we can, we will try to rectify the problem on initial inspection.

If your drainage system runs just outside your boundary you will need to contact Sheffield council or Yorkshire water to arrange the blockage removal with their drainage department.

So what is causing your blocked drain problems?

Grease and Fat build up are common causes of blocked drains

One of the biggest causes of blocked drains is cooking fat or grease. Many people think that it is okay to pour these liquids down the drain after cooking, however what you may not realise is that they can stick to the surface of the pipes and after time, this can lead to clogging effect.

It is important to remember that whilst fat may seem like a harmless liquid, it is not suitable to be washed down into the drain.

Toilet paper and baby wipes

Now we know the idea of toilet paper causing a blockage made sound strange, especially when it is designed to be flushed, but it large quantities, it can cause an issue.

The paper can stick together and become attached to the sides of the drain, causing an obstruction which requires professional help. 

Baby wipes on the other hand are not designed to be flushed down the toilet, and even those that claim to be flushable will not disperse in the water as toilet paper does.

More serious damage is caused by tree roots

Sometimes, mother nature herself is to blame for drain blockages. Tree roots in particular can work their way into the drain through tiny cracks, causing a blockage. Tree roots are drawn to the water and can cause the pipe to crack quite easily.
