Are you tired of dealing with blocked drains in your Cumbrian home? Drainage Cumbria has got you covered. Our company specializes in drain unblocking services in the North West of England. Our team is equipped with the latest technology and equipment to get your drain unblocked in no time. But before you call us, here are some DIY techniques you can use to unblock your drain.
The plunger is a classic and tried-and-tested tool to unblock drains that are not too severely clogged up. When using a plunger, make sure the plunger cup is completely submerged in water. You can add some petroleum jelly on the cup rim for a better seal. Then, push and pull the plunger up and down vigorously over the blocked drain. This should help dislodge the blockage and allow water to flow through.
Sometimes, plunging just doesn't work. In such cases, you'll need a drain unblocking machine. These machines are powerful and can unblock stubborn blockages in your drain. However, they can be dangerous if you don't know how to use them. It's best to leave this to the professionals at Drainage Cumbria.
Sink and washing machine blockages are common in households. If you have a blocked sink or washing machine, try pouring boiling water down the drain. This can help melt the grease or fat causing the blockage. You can also use a mix of baking soda and vinegar. Pour the baking soda down the drain first, then follow it up with vinegar. Cover the drain and wait for 15 minutes before pouring boiling water down the drain.
If you've exhausted all DIY techniques and still can't get the water flowing, it's time to call the professionals at Drainage Cumbria. Leaving a blocked drain for too long can cause water damage to your property, which could be costly to repair. Furthermore, insurance won't cover water damage caused by negligent homeowners.
