The Risks of Blocked Drains to Your Property

Drains that are blocked can cause bad smell in your household. If left untreated, the bad smell can be a potential health risk to the members of the household. Imagine yourself living in a house for the next few days with a foul odour inside, It is never a pleasant experience and a health risk as the actual foul smell is sewerage bacteria floating through the air. Blocks in drains can also potentially cause pipes to leak or burst and may pose structural risks to your property. 

What further damages can blocked drains cause?

Any plumbing emergency can lead to further issues if they are continuously neglected. Blocked drains can cause leaks and bursts in your piping systems. They can also damage your foundations, due to water seepage and flooding. Blocked drains can promote your pipes to deteriorate fast and may require expensive repair and replacements in your plumbing systems in the future not to mention the risk of sewerage overflowing in areas you cannot access to clean; causing bacteria growth and foul smells.
  • Unpleasant Odour

One of the most noticeable signs that your drains are blocked is foul odour. If you constantly experience foul smell released inside or outside your home, checking your drains for clogs should be your initial course of action. The foul smell is actually bacteria in the air from the sewerage system and should be attended to as a matter of urgency as it can be a health risk. When pipes are blocked with dirt and debris, water or sewerage can sit and become stagnant in pipes. This can lead to bacteria growth and the infestation of pests and insects. When your pipes become blocked the normal airflow through vents cannot operate as designed and stagnant water, as the waste and food material that have accumulated inside these pipes start rotting in the pipe causing foul odours. This situation happens when you neglect a blocked drain for a long time. When you do, a foul smell is released into your home.
  • Slow Drainage

Another obvious result of clogged drains in your homes is slow drainage. When your drainage takes longer to flush out water, a clog may be present in your pipes. You waste precious time, especially when draining a sink or a bathtub. Blocks in your drain make the drainage process in your home slower than usual. In some cases, water can start to flow back up, if the blocks are already severe. When this occurs, an unpleasant smell begins to linger in your drain. Such conditions in your plumbing system can also lead to further growth of mould and bacteria in your pipes, as well as on your floors and in your lavatories. Slow drains can cause further issues in the remainder of you piping system, vacuums can occur sucking through water seals in other areas of your house allowing foul smells to enter the home.
  • Leaks

Unattended drainage blockages can cause pipes to leak in the long run. Pipes with blockages will eventually have a hard time enduring the extra water pressure and the blockage creates back pressure in the drains, causing the pipe to crack and leak, or worse, to burst. Blockages cause pipes to function below their potential. Blockages and the effects of pressure to these areas cause them to wear and tear, weakening their structural soundness. Further damage can lead to water seepage into the floors and walls and may compromise the entire foundation of your homes. Allowing these blockages to perpetuate will lead you to very high costs for repair, retrofitting and replacement.
