One of the biggest cardinal sins in causing blockage, is pouring fat down the sink. It lines the pipe walls and, a bit like cholesterol in human arteries, eventually leads to blocked pipes.  


Bad Habits Leading To Trouble 


There are several other reasons for drain blockages. Tree roots for one. Depending on the type of tree, far-flung roots can spread downwards cracking or breaking drainage pipes.  Crimes against drainage systems involve the flushing of baby nappies down the drain as well.


Such activities may come back to haunt you in the guise of a flooded bathroom, dirty, bacteria-ridden water backing up in the shower unit or bath. Sometimes, drain blockages can’t be helped with the regular use of cosmetics and hair care products. They eventually cause a build-up of pipe-blocking gunk, namely loose hair and other unmentionables. 


Hidden Dangers  


Kitchen sinks should always have a strainer covering the plug hole. The much used domestic sink is often a source of poor drain-keeping practices. Small particles of food get washed straight into the drains. The food begins to break down causing nasty smells stemming from the presence of bacteria like E-coli and Salmonella. Don’t allow this to become a health issue. If not dealt with, flood water teeming with bacteria can lead to diarrhea, stomach pains and vomiting.
