What are the Symptoms of Blocked Drains in Northwich?

When your drains do become blocked, they can cause a range of serious issues to your property. Some of the symptoms of blocked drains can start off as minor irritants. However, allowing them to develop into more serious blockages can lead to structural damage and health risks.

Some of the symptoms to look out for when it comes to blocked or otherwise damaged drains, include:

  • Unpleasant Smells – If unpleasant smells, particularly sulphuric ones, emerge from your drains, you could be suffering from blocked drains. This could be due to trapped water or waste in the pipe, or the blockage itself beginning to smell.
  • Slow to Clear and Gurgling Drains – If your toilets, sinks or baths are slow to drain, then there may be a blockage in the pipe. Even a partial blockage will reduce the operating width of your drains. As the water has less space to move through the pipe, it can take longer to clear.
  • The increased pressure around the blockage will also cause the drains to gurgle as the clear. This is due to trapped air escaping back up the pipe.

  • Backwash – In the worst cases, it is possible for drains to become completely blocked. This will prevent water and waste from exiting your property. With nowhere to go, and as the pressure builds up, the waste is likely to move back up your pipe. This can cause backwash and flooding across your property, including exterior drains and internal water features.

What Causes Blocked Drains in Northwich?

Blocked drains in Northwich can be caused by many different things. Some of these issues are due to poor drainage care, whereas others are caused by natural means. Both types can be extremely serious and result in long-term damage to your property. In the worst cases, these blocked drains can require repair or replacement services to restore their usability.

Some of the most common ways that drains can become blocked can include:

  • Food Waste – Solid food waste is a common cause of blockages. It can be difficult to shift and, when in place, can rot. This can create extremely unpleasant smells and make you vulnerable to all kinds of illnesses and diseases.
  • Fats, Oils and Greases – Otherwise known as FOGs, fats, oils and greases are a component of most blockages. These substances will stick to the inside of your pipes. They can trap and bind other kinds of waste together, leading to serious blockages.
  • Flushing Unsuitable Waste – There are all kinds of waste which can lead to blockages in drains. Some of the most common kinds of waste which are flushed or drained and lead to blocked drains are:
  • Kitchen Roll, Wet Wipes and Baby Wipes.
  • Feminine Products.
  • Makeup and Medical Waste.
  • Human Hair.
  • Tree Roots – Tree roots can enter your drains through even the smallest of gaps and cracks. Once inside, they will quickly grow due to the water and nutrients in your grey water. These roots can cause serious blockages which are extremely difficult to shift.
