Drain pipes are made to be narrow so that water can flow down them easily but they’re also made to be wide enough for them to not get blocked easily. However, due to excessive amount of water that’s drained over the years, blockages might build up over time and when this happens, it can be very frustrating to deal with. Fortunately though, Austest Pipeline Solutions has been fixing blocked drain in Melbourne for almost 20 years and can help you make your drains as open as they were when your house was first built. Here are a few things that can block your drains at home over the years.

Fat

With the amount of grease and oil we wash from our dishes and pans, it’s no surprise that lumps of fat are blocking drains. In fact, not too long ago there was an incident in London where a 15 tonne mass of fat was found in the sewers and it took them week to break it down too. It’s a good idea to scrape out fat from pans before washing it all down the drain.

Hair

Have you ever noticed that you shed a crazy amount of hair every time you shower? It’s a completely natural thing but all this hair is going to go down the drain and at some point, it’s going to get caught up on something and then it’ll just pile up more and more. The best way to avoid this is to pick up your hair from the drain every time you have a bath or a shower.

Bath Salts

This might be a bummer for some of us to read but bath salts can leave behind some debris that can clog up your drains, along with other things down there.
