My drains keep getting blocked

Blocked drains are a real inconvenience, and - let’s be honest - aren’t pretty. Sometimes it’s as simple as standing in an inch of water in the shower, while other times it’s as serious as an overflowing sink. 

Most households will come across blocked drains at one point or another. They’re usually caused by a foreign object, congealing oil and grease, or even just a build-up of hair. If a clogged drain is left unattended, the problem can get much worse, causing bad odours, damage to your home, and even potential health implications.
