There are a number of simple steps you can take to keep your drains in good working order. Mostly these are simple actions but they can have a significant benefit and prevent more costly repairs in the future.
Keeping your drains free from debris is an easy and very important job if you want to keep your drains in good condition. If you do this it will minimise the chance of problems occurring in the future. From leaves to litter, the wind and rain can deposit many unwanted items in your drains, and it is crucial to remove these on a regular basis to prevent a blockage occurring.
Ensuring that liquid fats are not deposited down the drain is another simple step to take to keep your drains problem free. Fats produced in the kitchen are disposed of by some people down the kitchen sink. Unfortunately the fats then thicken and rapidly form blockages causing damage to the pipework. By allowing the fat to cool and harden and then putting it in the bin, your drains will be saved from potential damage.
It’s also important to have your drains cleaned from time to time, which will help to keep them in a good working condition, prevent blockages and reduce the chance of damage.
