Blocked, smelly or slow-moving drains are a nightmare and the main culprits tend to be fat, oil and grease.
Even though we all know they shouldn’t go down the drains they always seem so harmless in their liquid form and the temptation is to just pour them away.
Once in the drainage system the fats start to cool down and as they do they become congealed and hardened (Sorry if you are having your lunch!).
They then stick to the inner lining of the drain pipes and there you have the beginning of a blockage.
Best case scenario?
Slow-moving, ineffective drainage and bad smells.
Worst case scenario?
A completely blocked drain system creating dangerous, unhygienic and very unpleasant conditions.
This is a threat to your business, staff and customers so it’s important to get it sorted before it causes chaos.
Major drain blockages, if left untreated, can mean calling out expensive drain rodding or jetting services so prevention, as always, is better than the cure!
What not to do…
Using bleaches and detergents to try and solve the problem can appear to help with smelly drains but this is simply a temporary effect as the build-up or blockage will simply turn back to solid fat and continue to accumulate.
