A January Health Kick for Your Drains

If you have noticed that your drains aren’t in the best shape following your Christmas celebrations, then we are here to help.

Are your drains suffering after a few weeks of festive celebrations? Then you are certainly not alone! As the one of the leading experts in blocked drains London has to offer, we see plenty of cases where drains have become blocked around this time of year. Here’s what causes it, and what you should do next.

Festive foods

We all love to cook delicious food for our loved ones over the festive period – but if you’re not careful, that can lead to blocked drains. Pouring cooking oil, fat, and grease down the plughole can cause blockages to form – and the foods that we all like to eat at Christmas can contain a lot of oils and fats. If you often pour cooking waste down the drain instead of throwing it away, this could explain why you are experiencing drain issues now.


If you have been welcoming lots of guests over the festive period, it can be hard to make sure that the rules you and your household follow are always observed. People may flush makeup wipes down the toilet, and fail to put drain covers down before they have a shower. It can be hard to keep on top of things like this during the busy Christmas period – and chances are your drains weren’t the first thing on your mind!

Don’t try and fix it yourself

There’s no way to reverse the damage that’s been done over the festive period, but if you do notice a problem with your drains the best thing you can do is seek professional help. Never try to unblock a drain yourself – as this can be ineffective at best and make the blockage more severe at worst. Don’t beat yourself up about your blocked drains – lots of people aren’t aware of what can cause the problem to occur. We work with all kinds of clients, and never judge them harshly.
