Are you responsible for the drain?
Firstly it’s important that we determine whether you are responsible for the drains concerned. Any pipe which drains a single property, or a number of properties/buildings within the same curtilage is defined as a drain and will remain the responsibility of the owner/occupier of the premises up to the point where it is no longer within the area of land immediately surrounding the property or it connects to a sewer. If the blockage is located outside the official boundary of your property, then it is likely to be the responsibility of Thames Water.
If you have blocked drains in Surrey and require immediate unblocking, then our experienced engineers are ready for your call. We offer a 24/7 365 days a year emergency service for drain unblocking, so no matter what time of the night, get in touch with Maclaren Drainage.
How you can avoid blocked drains in Dorking…
After unblocking drains for our customers we will always leave with them some advice that will help them to avoid blocked drains in the future. Below are some tips to help you keep your drainage clear and ensure your wanted waste keeps flowing away from your building…
Do not pour grease or oil down the drain. These types of substances solidify within the pipe, creating a hard obstacle for other waste to try and pass. Eventually the build up of waste will create a blockage that can be difficult to get rid of. The majority of our drain unblocking work at domestic households is due to the build up of grease and oil so our advice is to find other ways of disposing these substances.
Do not flush anything down the toilet other than human waste and toilet paper. Sanitary towels and baby wipes do not degrade like toilet paper. Again, this is a very common cause of blocked drains in Dorking and you should take steps to prevent this from happening in your home or workplace.
Keep your drains clear. You can prevent blockages by keeping your plug holes and local pipes clear of hair and dirt. Make it a habit to regularly remove any hair and dirt from around the plug every time you bath or shower.
How to know if you have blocked drains in Dorking…
If your home or business premises is experiencing any of the following then we recommend getting in touch. There is a good chance you have blocked drains and we can provide a fast, effective solution.
Slow draining water. If the water in your bath, shower or sink is taking a lot longer than usual to drain away then there may be a blockage in the drain. There is a good chance that the blockage is local, maybe from the build up of hair, so we recommend looking into the plug hole yourself and checking to make sure the pipe is clear.
High water levels. After flushing the toilet check to see how high the water level rises too. If the water levels remain high and do not drop there it is likely that you have a blockage further down the drainage system. We recommend using a plunger because if the blockage is local you may be able to disturb it enough to release the blockage.
That ‘rotten egg’ smell. If sulphurous smells are in and around your home or workplace then this is another sign that you may have blocked drains in Dorking. Maybe you can smell them when brushing your teeth or doing the washing up. There could be a couple of reasons as to why you are experiencing this; the soil stack may not be venting the drains properly, the P trap may not be sealing as it should, or poorly designed pipework could mean your losing the water seal from one or more of your waste traps. We can deal with all of the above with some help from our Plumbing & Heating division! Give us a call and we will ask a few questions which may help us to diagnose the problem. If we still can’t get sot the bottom of it we will send an experienced engineer around to meet you.
