Drains do more work than we give them credit for and it’s not till a drain gets completely blocked that we begin to realise how much water goes through them. If it rains for a good hour or two, the roads outside your house can be completely flooded and may remain flooded for a long period of time till the water stagnates and begins to smell really bad. If you’ve never seen this happen, it’s because the drains in your area are working.
Like most things, drains also need to be maintained in order for them to function as intended. With all the water that washed down them, there’s a lot of room for dirt and debris to get washed along with the water and eventually this dirt and debris start collecting in the narrow passages of the drain, causing blockages. A blocked drain can make the rest of your drainage system ineffective as well since a single blockage keeps all water from entering. Blocked drains can be very distressing, especially when they’re near your home. Fortunately, you can learn how to unblock your drain pretty easily; most methods you see on the internet work for small blockages.
However, if there are multiple drains blocked in your area or a blockage is too tough to be broken down by you poking it with a rod, the best course of action is to hire a company that specialises in unblocking drains of all kinds. With high pressure jets of water and coring machines at their disposal, experts in drainage facilities are able to clear any kind of a drain blockage almost instantly, even when there’s water all over the place, making it difficult to even spot the drains.
