Drain Cleaning & Descaling

We all know how inconvenient a clogged sewer drain can be. From slow-draining sinks and bathtubs, to overflowing toilets, and even strange smells coming from the pipes, clogged drains are not only annoying but can also be the sign of a much more serious problem.

Additionally, the build-up of dirt, debris, and other deposits in drains can lead to a variety of plumbing issues.

That’s why it’s important to have your drain pipe regularly checked and cleared by professional unblocking company. With years of experience in the industry, Bell Drains offers reliable and cost-effective drain cleaning services to customers across the south east of England and London.

Signs of a Clogged Drain

The best way to avoid blocked drains is to be aware of the signs of a blocked or partially blocked drain. Common symptoms include:

  • Slow-draining sinks, tubs, and showers,
  • Overflowing toilets and sinks,
  • Unpleasant odours from the pipes,
  • Gurgling sounds from the sink or shower,
  • Unusual water levels when flushing the toilet,
  • Pooling of water on the floor, and
  • Visible obstruction in the pipes.

It is important to act quickly once these signs are noticed, as a delay in dealing with the problem can lead to further damage, inconvenience, and a more costly drain repair.

Causes of Blocked Drains

Blocked drains can be caused by a variety of factors. The most common culprits are:

  • Backed up sewers,
  • Heavy rain
  • Clogged roadside drains
  • Blocked rainwater gullies
  • Tree roots,
  • Too much toilet paper,
  • Foreign objects,
  • Food waste,
  • Grease buildup, and
  • Drain clogs or broken pipes.

Fortunately, there are steps you can take to prevent blockages. For instance, you can regularly check your drains for any visible obstruction, and consider using a strain on your sinks and showers to catch any food waste or material that may cause a clog. Additionally, you should avoid using your toilet as a trash can, and dispose of all food scraps properly.

Several factors can cause drains to clog, such as hair, soap, food waste, grease, and tree roots. Additionally, flushing non-degradable items, like wet wipes or feminine hygiene products, can create significant blockages.
If you have a typical household with moderate usage, it’s recommended to clean your drains at least once a year. However, if you notice slow draining or unpleasant odours, it’s advised to clean them immediately.
Slow draining, unpleasant odours, gurgling sounds, and water backups are some common signs that indicate your drains need cleaning. If you notice any of these signs, contact a professional drain cleaning company to inspect and clear your drains.
Although chemical drain cleaners may seem like a quick fix, they are not a long-term solution. They can damage your pipes and create more significant problems in the future. It’s advisable to hire a drain cleaning professional who uses environmentally friendly and safe methods to clean your drains.
There are several preventive measures you can take, such as using drain screens, avoiding flushing non-degradable items, regular cleaning, and avoiding pouring grease and oil down the drain. Maintaining good practices can help prevent clogs in your plumbing system and save you money in the long run.
