What Causes a Blocked Drain?

A blocked drain can cause a major headache if you have to deal with them by yourself. Home drains function unseen every day. They make sure that wastewater leaves your property and goes into the main sewer without any problem. However, when the drainage is blocked, the draining of wastewater is reduced or completely stops. This can cause flooding in the bathroom or in areas where the drain is blocked. Wastewater back up can also let out an unpleasant or foul smell that may be hazardous to human health. Blocked drains are very common in homes and business establishments. They can cause serious damage to property through water damage, and cause mould and mildew to grow which are difficult to get rid of and are harmful to health.

Be aware of signs that tell you that you have a blocked drain. Signs of a blocked drain include slow drainage of water in showers, toilets, baths, and sinks. Other signs include when there is no draining of wastewater at all, wastewater backup into baths or showers, the smell of sewage from drains and gurgling noises. If you see any of these signs in your home drains, call blocked drain plumbers immediately to help you fix the problem.

Drain Cleaning

There are two types of drains in Australia which need cleaning. One is the sewer drain that carries wastewater from your house to the sewer pipes and to the wastewater treatment facility. The second one is the storm water drain which carries clean rainwater away from your home to the local waterways like a river.

If you have to clean up after a blocked drain event, you know that it is something that you don’t want to happen again. If the blockage is in the sewer drain, you are going it to hate it like hell. The cost of cleaning a sewage back-up is even higher and is hazardous to human health. Safety precautions have to be taken by the cleaner. Sometimes it may also require you to replace parts of your home like walls, carpet, wood and other flooring including damaged possessions.

Without proper drainage, wastewater can backup from the sewage into your yard, driveway, home and may cause flooding. Therefore, it is important to manage drain clogs to prevent these from happening. This is why you need drain cleaning services that will help you prevent a much worse blocked drain plumbing issue.

Blocked Toilet Drain

There are a number of reasons why toilet drains get clogged or blocked. Blocked toilets sometimes may be an indication of a bigger problem in your drainage system. There might be a sewer blockage or obstruction in the toilet line. Toilet drain obstructions can cause blocked toilet drains. Clogging or blockage may be caused by flushing of toilet fresheners or other objects that have fallen into the toilet that caused a jam and clog in the drain pipes. Common blocked toilet problems are caused by a build-up of toilet paper that has blocked the sewer drain.


The indicators of a blocked toilet drain include slow draining of water levels in the toilet bowl after flushing, and when the water level rises up to the top of the toilet when it is flushed. The best solution to resolve a blocked toilet drain is to call blocked toilet expert plumbers to fix the problem for you. Getting help from professional blocked drain emergency plumbers will get your problem fixed properly and fast.

Other causes of blocked toilets are the accumulation of larger debris, hair, tissue and toilet paper flushed down the drain. Once these materials build up, the flow of water draining from the toilet slows down. Chemical drain cleaners can keep the system clear but using them is not environmentally friendly because of their harsh ingredients that can hurt the environment. Therefore, call a blocked drain plumber to fix the problem instead.

Clearing Blocked Drain

Blocked drain can be quite a headache. Nevertheless, it’s not always as dire as you may think. There are actually some clogged drain issues that you can solve and here are some ways you can do it.

First, when you encounter a clogged drain, you need to shut off the faucet that supplies water into the drain, for example your sink is clogged, then shut off the faucet. Then start to plunge the open drain up and down and then pull it off. Repeat this process a few times.

After which, run water into the sink to see if it cleared the blockage. If the blockage is cleared, run hot water into the drain to remove the fats, oils and grease that’s sticking to the inside walls of your pipes. Then run tap water into drain to prevent the hot water from damaging the pipes.

If you have a double kitchen sink, plug one of the drains with wet rag. If you are facing a blocked bathroom sink, cover the overflow hole. Then use a plunger as instructed previously.

Unfortunately, if your pipes have been neglected and you’re facing years of clog build-up of grease, hair, food particles and rust; then it’s time you call in a professional plumber who has the technical expertise to deal with this issue. As you may already know, these elements will not only clog your pipelines but can also cause corrosion, which damages your pipes.

While regular maintenance can prevent clogging and prolong the life of your pipelines, but if you haven’t done so for years, then it would be best to leave this to a professional. An experienced and skilled plumber will not only get rid of the blockage effectively, but will also prevent your pipelines from being further damaged.
