Christmas is almost here
Festive season is fast approaching, and this one is set to be truly memorable. With COVID-19 putting a dampener on last year’s celebrations, this year is the chance for us all to make up for lost time. Whether you have a big celebration planned or you are going to be enjoying a series of more low-key reunions with your nearest and dearest, you’ll want to make sure that everything in your home is running as it should be. That does include your drains, as unglamorous as that may be!
A blocked drain can cause chaos and could spoil this year’s festivities. So here is what you should be keeping a look out for.
What to look out for
One of the most effective ways to stop a blocked drain in its tracks is to learn what is normal for your home. Once you know which sounds and other quirks are nothing to worry about, you will be much more able to spot something that’s out of the ordinary. Of course, you should get anything that raises your suspicions checked out, but there are certain warning signs point towards a blocked drain specifically. These are as follows:
- Unpleasant odours coming from drain
- Slow drainage
- Raised water levels
- Gurgling sounds
Whether you have noticed just one of these or several, it’s important that you take action as quickly as possible. It’s highly unlikely that the problem will go away by itself and will instead get worse over time.
Don’t take the DIY approach
Drains keep our homes running as normal. So, with so much at stake, it’s important that you don’t try to tackle a suspected blockage yourself. A lot of the products that promise big results fail to deliver and trying to carry out any kind of manual work on your drains is not recommended. You could further compact the blockage and make things worse, or even damage your drains. We won’t lie – it’s a bit of a messy job too, sometimes! If you want the problem solved quickly, the best thing to do is call out the professionals.
