The winter brings with it frost, snow and cold weather - all of which can cause damage to your drains and in some cases your property. During the winter pipes and drainage systems are all vunerable - so it's important to keep your drain system working well to ensure no faults occur.
To help you avoid common winter drainage problems we've put together a few handy tips for homeowners and business owners.
Autumn and winter bring leaves, rain, frost and in some cases snow. It's the time of year where you're most likely to find leaves, twigs, branches and other debris blocking your drains. Uncleared blockages can result in back-ups in your drain system and result in overflows in or outside your home or business. Things you should do:
Call in our team of experts to undetake a drain inspection ideally in late autumn before winter sets in, we can make sure you drains are free from blockages this winter.
Make sure any pipes that are exposed to the elements are insulated properly - by doing this you can minimise the likelihood of blocked or burst pipes.
In winter it's even more important to make sure you avoid pouring fats and oils down you sink and into your drain. As the fats and oils cool it can block or coat the inside of the pipes with residue, increasing the likelihood of a blockage. Make sure you:
Look out for dripping taps and outlets, any water being released slowly is likely to freeze.
If you think you drains maybe blocked take a look at blocked drains services page - this will give you some things you need to look out for.
