Fixing a Blocked Drain in Somerset West, Strand and Gordons Bay

Do you need to fix a blocked drain?

Don’t stress about it – it happens. But you need to get a blocked drain fixed right away so that it does not cause further problems for you. Drains can be nasty when they spill over, and the smell can be nauseating. Helderberg Plumbers can fix this for you. Otherwise, you might have to deal with water damage in case the overflows are not handled in time.

Besides, blocked drains cause slow movement of water that can result in pipe corrosion which can make you pay more for repairs.

Obviously, you should do all you can to avoid these terrible outcomes.

And you can – thanks to the services we offer at Helderberg Plumber. We clear drains fast, and our services are guaranteed and focused on customer satisfaction. That means you will have no obligation to pay us if the problem cannot be resolved.

But how do drains end up blocked in the first place?

There are many reasons, but these are the most common.

Tree roots can cause a blocked drain

Pipes can crack when tree roots put pressure on them. The roots can go on to make the problem worse by forcing their way into the pipes, making the cracks bigger.

Cracks can also encourage tree roots to force their way into them, making the problem worse, and water might even get blocked completely over time.

But for us, these are problems that can be easily resolved.

Sure, for some minor blockages, chemicals such as jik can help, but when they fail, it’s time to call us and deal with the problem professionally using equipment such as high-pressure water jets. We might even have to do pipe replacements if the pipes are too damaged.

Unusual Objects can cause a blocked drain

There are people out there who will flush anything down the toilet thinking that this installation can be used as a dust bin. Eventually, such objects end up blocking the toilet.

Minerals can cause a blocked drain

Mineral build up can happen over time, and there is little, if anything, you can do to prevent it. These minerals come from many of the household chemicals we use. One way to deal with the problem is to flush boiling water down your drains to clear them off. When that fails, you can get Plumber Helderberg to resolve the issue for you. We have all the tools necessary to deal with such issues comprehensively.

Hair can cause a blocked drain

When hair mixes with fats and oils when getting flushed down the drain, it becomes a sticky ball that can easily block a pipe. You should, therefore, take care of how you dispose of your hair. Otherwise, this problem can be fixed with the help of strong chemicals. You can also use hair catchers that keep you from having this problem in the first place.

Toilet Paper can cause a blocked drain

Toilet paper can also block drains. This usually happens when you try to drain too much toilet paper at once. A plumbing rod can help clear the problem, but if that does not work, Plumber Helderberg is here to help.
