What are the Causes of Blocked Drains in Lymm?

Drains can become blocked due to a variety of reasons. Some of these blocked drains will be due to the disposal of unsuitable materials. However, it is also possible for situations beyond your control to cause blockages in your home or business’ drainage.

The kind of blockage you are dealing with will normally influence the kind of unblocking service that we recommend. Some blockages are more vulnerable to certain techniques than others. Similarly, some blockages can also cause serious damage to your system and will, instead, require repair or replacement services.

There are many ways that drains can become blocked. Some of the most common causes of blockages drains in Lymm can include:

  • Food Waste, Fats, Oils and Greases – Solid food waste is a major concern for many drainage systems. They are resistant to being broken down by water and can easily group together. Disposing of solid food waste down the sink is a bad habit that many homeowners in the UK suffer from.

    Even more serious, however, is the disposal of fats, oils and greases. Otherwise known as FOGs, this kind of waste is one of the most common causes of blockages. At the very least, it is present in more than 90% of all man-made drain blockages. FOGs will adhere to the inside of your pipes. Once they are in-place, fats, oils and greases will trap other waste as it passes by. This can cause large blockages to appear extremely quickly and prevent the passage of water through the pipes.

  • Flushing Unsuitable Waste – Toilets, and the attached drainage system, are designed to deal with human waste, toilet paper, grey-water and liquids. As such, disposing of any other kind of material in the toilet can be a serious problem. Unsuitable waste cannot be broken down in the drains. As such, it can easily cause pipes to become blocked.

Some of the most common kinds of unsuitable waste leading to drain blockages can include:

  • Wet Wipes and Baby Wipes.
  • Kitchen Roll.
  • Feminine Products.
  • Makeup and Medical Waste.
  • Human Hair.
  • Cleaning Products and Soap Scum.
  • Tree Root Intrusion – Tree roots can cause some of the most serious kinds of blocked drains. They are a common problem across all types of properties, including homes and businesses.
  • Tree roots are always searching for sources of moisture. As such, they will be able to detect your drains or, rather, the water in your drains. They will quickly grow through the soil to reach your pipes. Once they reach the drains, these roots will require only the smallest of gaps to grow into. These roots can grow into small cracks, loose pipe connections and can even make their own entry points overtime.

    Once in place, these roots will grow extremely quickly. Thanks to the moisture and nutrients found in the pipes, they will develop into serious blockages in a short amount of time. These issues can also lead to serious damage to the affected pipes.
