Blocked Drains ? Know When to Call for Professional Help

Blocked drains can occur in the home and in the workplace (or in public places), and can happen due to a build-up over time, or courtesy of a child trying to flush a whole roll of toilet paper down the loo in one go.

Whether it is the kitchen, the bathroom, or the laundry, you want to get your issue sorted before it starts to cause damage.

The good news is that if you live in Perth, you can reach out to the team at property plumbing and gas to get someone to help you with your blocked drain – no matter where in your building it is located.

What are blocked drains?

They can happen for any number of reasons, and basically they stop the flow of wastewater (including septic waste) from reaching its main destination.

If you try a simple flush of your drains using things like hot water and bicarbonate soda, and you are still experiencing issues, it might be time to call for a professional plumber to help you out.

Here’s how to unblock drains with professional help

  • Call a professional to come and help you

Blocked drains can stop you using essential spaces in your home or your workplace.  Left too long, the water can turn stagnant and create other problems – the least of which is the smell.

  • Get the professional to clean the drain

Professional plumbers in Perth will have access to tools that help to determine the cause of the block and flush the drain (pardon the pun) to get things working again.

  • Determine the next course of action with your plumber

Working with a professional, they may be able to help you identify whether it is a minor issue and help you develop a maintenance plan, or if the block is due to something a little more serious, they will be able to help you work out the appropriate course of action.

When should you call for the plumber to come and help

The recommendation would be to get someone to help immediately, or at least after you have tried simple methods to clear it – things like using a plunger to unclog a toilet, a drain snake to remove hair from a shower, or the bicarbonate and hot water for the kitchen sink.

If these are still daunting, and you are still experiencing smells and odours, and problems with the drainage of water, then you definitely need to reach out for a professional.

The longer you leave the problem, the worse it is likely to get – not only from a structural impact perspective but what could be a small cost to fix could blow out into a rather expensive exercise if left untreated.

Fortunately, we have a team of professionals who know how to fix all sorts of blocked drains that happen in and around Perth.   Simply reach out to our team and be confident that professionals will be able to get things moving again.
