As the sun rises on another day, cul-de-sacs throughout Birmingham will be full of the sound of children playing outside and the air will be full of the beautiful smells of various barbeques. Unfortunately, for every few barbeques which fill the air with the smell of burgers and sausages, there will be a house that is emitting a foul stench, due to having blocked drains Birmingham which have gone unnoticed and allowed various waste products to build up over time. A blocked drain can have a number of implications, as we here at Total Drainage are all too aware of.
Throughout our experience within the industry, we’ve become acquainted with the tell tale signs of a blocked drain, and we believe that homeowners and business owners alike should have an understanding of how they can recognise whether a drain is blocked or not.
There are three clear indications that your drainage system has a block somewhere along the lines, these are:
• A foul stench from the drains themselves
• Manholes overflowing
• Waste not dispersing when the toilet is flushed
However, before one of these three signs are made evident, you’ll be greeted with several warning signs (some of which are highlighted below). If you act as soon as these become apparent you can prevent your drains from becoming blocked.
1. A gurgling sound as you flush the toilet/empty water from the sink/bath
2. Water levels within the toilet being significantly lower than usual
3. Sinks within the property will have a smell about them due to trapped waste inside which cannot disperse correctly.
If you’ve noticed any of the above signs, then your drainage system may be blocked. Instead of poking around in the dark, not knowing what you’re really doing or hoping to achieve, call us here at Total Drainage. Our experienced and specially trained team will be able to unblock any blocked drains Birmingham using the latest technology and techniques to ensure all water flows through effectively.
