Maybe you noticed a bad smell to begin with, then realised that the sink wasn’t draining correctly.  Before you know it, water is backing up and overflowing.  If this happens with the toilet, the problem is much more of a problem as in the worst case scenario, you will find yourself with sewage spreading all over the floors or even outside the property as it seeps through manholes.  Whether this happens in a domestic residence or in a business the result is the same; a blocked drain emergency in Basingstoke.

Warning signs of blocked drains

We find that some of our clients panic and start pouring chemicals such as acids down the drain.  Not only are these products dangerous but they can make the blockage worse.  At the same time, they are harmful to people and the environment.  If you try to use drain rods, you may end up compacting whatever is blocking the drain instead of moving it.  Either way, it is not a good idea.

As an experienced and approved drainage contractor in the Basingstoke district, clearing blocked drains is what we do best.  If you are not sure whether or not you have a blocked drain, here are just a few warning signs:

  • Sink – water not draining fully
  • Toilet – water rising up in the pan when you flush
  • Foul smelling water
  • Gurgling noise as water tries to find a way through the pipes

This can also happen in the bath or shower.  Blockages in drains in Basingstoke can be caused due to so many things:  fat or grease, wet wipes, disposable nappies, sanitary items, too much paper, cotton wool…and the list goes on. If you have commercial premises such as a restaurant or hotel, then blockages can occur due to guests misusing the toilets or kitchen staff are not rinsing plates fully before loading dishwashers.
