Apart from the discomfort that comes with a blocked drainage system, it is also important to make sure that it is treated as an emergency. It is important that you seek the assistance of an emergency plumber as soon as you see signs of a blockage because it is a health and safety issue.

As leading emergency plumbers in the country, we at IQ Plumbers advise the general public to take certain precautions so as to minimize the effects of drainage blockages.

What is resident in drainage systems?

The whole idea of having a drainage system is to make sure that household or commercial waste is disposed of properly and effectively. As such, the water in the drainage system is usually dirty thus would pose a health problem to the household or to the commercial site were it not to be dealt with properly.

It is also important to note that because the water is dirty and has probably been resident in the system for quite some time, it means that there could be the presence of harmful organisms which can pose a threat to health.
It is thus important to make sure that each time there is a sign that the water is flowing back onto the property as a result of blocked drains, then you call an emergency drainage company. This is one way of making sure that the damage is minimized so that there is no damage to the residents on the property.
