Blocked Drains – A Recurring Problem

October 7th, 2009

One drawback of running a busy and successful city centre catering business, such as a restaurant, is that the busier you are, the more likely you are to suffer from problems involving blocked drains. The more food waste that is accidentally consigned to the sewers, the greater your risk of a hefty bill from emergency plumbers.

The most common problems arise from fat or grease being allowed to drain from the sink or dishwasher. As the organic waste runs through the pipes it cools and solidifies. The solid deposits make the pipes narrower and lead to, at best, an ineffective drainage system. Far more of a worry, though, is the potential for blocked drains causing flooding.

Although the problem is, to an extent inevitable, you can still take steps to avoid having to contact the emergency plumbers too often. Dishwashing procedures can be carefully monitored to ensure the minimum risk. Use drain strainers to trap large waste particles before they get into the pipe work or use the chemicals available to clean drains and slow the build up of waste organic matter.
