What To Do When You Have A Blocked Drain

Drainage is a system within your home that is often overlooked, but painfully apparent when you need a drain unblocking. It’s never a fun process, especially if the drain is related to your sewer system.

However, it’s important to stay calm and know the correct process for drain unblocking, and who to call. That’s why at Siddell Environmental Services we have put together some guidance, to help you understand the process and put your mind at ease


What Causes a Blocked Drain?

A blocked drain can come in many forms, and depending on its location, may require different services to fix.

We’ve made a list covering all the main causes of blocked drains so that you can be aware of what not to do, and help you prevent unblocking a drain in the future


The main culprits for blockages in your sewer are as follows:

  • Flushing non-dissolvable products such as nappies and wet wipes
  • An issue with your septic tank
  • Poor installation of the original drainage system
  • Damage to external pipes outside of your home
  • Heavy flooding during storms or downpours

Pipes such as your kitchen or bathroom sink come under utility, and can be blocked for a number of reasons:

  • Excess oil or grease being disposed of in sinks
  • Lack of maintenance, e.g. clearing minor blockages with household products
  • Poor installation of interior plumbing
  • Old pipes that need replacing
  • Excess amounts of hair or debris
