Most homeowners have to contend with drainage issues at some point, but there’s no need to just put up with them when we can help.
They may be frustrating to deal with, but a number of drainage issues are very common. So, if one crops up in your home, you can at least take comfort in the fact that you aren’t alone! Here at London Drainage, we’re used to dealing with a wide range of drainage issues. Here are some of the most common, and why you should always call a professional drainage company to deal with them.
A dripping tap is one of the most common drainage problems. There are few more annoying sounds than the relentless dripping of a tap, but it’s not just annoying. A dripping tap can actually cost you a lot of money in the long run, with water literally going down the drain and pushing your bills up as a result. So, if yours is dripping, have someone look into it.
Another common drainage issue is a slow draining sink, and the problem is most often seen in kitchens and bathrooms. Things like food, fat, soap and hair can all cause blockages. As the blockage builds up, water can’t escape as freely. You may also notice a bad smell coming from the plughole – this is another sure-fire sign of a blockage.
Many homeowners have had to deal with a blocked toilet at some point in their lives. Although unpleasant, it’s usually just the sign of a blocked drain – and this is most often caused by a build-up of toilet paper and human waste. Blocked toilets can normally be fixed with a plunger, but a more serious blockage may need expert hands.
Leaking pipes aren’t just a nuisance, they can cause serious damage to furniture and floors, as well as encourage the breeding of pests such as cockroaches. Leaking pipes are common during the winter where water freezes and expands, causing pipes to burst or crack. There are numerous quick fixes, but the only real solution is to replace the piece of damaged pipe.
