Do You Need Drain Maintenance for Your Commercial Property?

commercial drain cleaners

In large commercial properties it is easy for drains to become blocked quickly as the water systems in the building are used regularly by a high volume of traffic. It’s vital that you keep your drains in proper working order and fully maintained for the comfort of you, your staff, and your clients and customers. As the owner of the commercial property it is your responsibility to maintain any drains and pipes that connect directly from your building to the public sewer. This isn’t always known by many people, as there is a misconception that the local council is responsible for all drain maintenance. The public sewer is the responsibility of local authorities.

So, ensure that it’s not your business property that is causing havoc with the drains and dispersing that foul sewer smell into the air by having your drains and pipes thoroughly maintained by professional commercial drain cleaners.

Drain problems that can occur in commercial buildings

There are a number of problems that can occur in drains which can severely impact the daily running of a business – particularly for restaurants, where the flow of water is necessary. One of the most common problems is blockages in the drain. Food waste and debris are the main culprits for creating these nuisance drain blockages and can have a significant effect on the function of your water systems, causing them to work much slower or not at all.

As drains are located outside of the building it is easy for them to become broken and corroded through because of adverse weather conditions. Tree roots and pressure on pipe work lead to cracking and the collapse of your drains, meaning they will need to be replaced ASAP.

Poor drainage leads to many problems in a business environment. The necessities will become out of use – such as toilets, sinks and drinking systems – plus the unpleasant smells are certainly an off put for customers.

So to avoid any negative impact on your business get those broken or blocked drains in working order immediately with the help of the commercial drain cleaners at Budget Rod.

How To Unblock an Outside Drain

guide to unblocking outside drains

A blocked outside drain in your street can quickly become a nuisance. Not only can it affect your home, but the whole street can be affected – however not everyone will want to offer solutions for it. Calling someone out to unblock your drain can be expensive or might seem like a drastic move if you believe you can unblock it yourself. If you want to give it a go before calling the professionals, here are some simple tips to help you when unblocking outside drains by yourself!

Find out what’s causing the blockage

Most drains get blocked by debris that has fallen down from the street, which could include leaves, grease, or discarded rubbish. Once you’ve figured out what’s causing the problem you can easily determine how you will have to tackle the issue, including the tools you’ll need to unblock the drain.

Find the tools you’ll need and get started

Once you’ve decided to have a go at unblocking your outside drain yourself, you should make sure you’re wearing the proper protective clothing as well as buying or borrowing some drain rods.

From here you’ll have to remove the drain cover (probably with a screwdriver if there isn’t an accessible handle) and take a look inside the drain. If the drain chamber is filled with water then the blockage will be somewhere below it – you should be able to find the blockage by working your way along the chamber.

Make sure you’re wearing protective gloves and plunge your drain rod into the drain chamber, continuing until you can feel that you’ve dislodged the blockage. Make sure you always turn the rod in a clockwise direction slowly while pushing it deeper – don’t spin it anti-clockwise as you could end up unscrewing the drain’s plunger attachment.

After unblocking the drain manually, you can simply run some clean water through it which should rinse away any remaining debris and stop any blockages building up again in the short term. You can then turn on your taps from inside your house and let them keep running for about three minutes so that you can be sure the water is running as normal. Then, pour some bleach down the drains so that you can be certain they’re as clean as possible.

Do You Need Emergency Drain Unblocking?

emergency domestic drain unblocking

Blocked drains emanate unpleasant smells and prevent you from using your washing and toilet facilities. They need to be resolved immediately and having them unblocked by professionals is the best (and fastest) method of doing this. Blocked drains are a huge hassle and get in the way of daily life, however, emergency drain unblocking shouldn’t be something you dread. Here at Budget Rod we make unblocking your drains as hassle-free as possible so that you can quickly return to daily life!

My drains are blocked, what do I do?

The first signs of blocked drains may be a smell when using your water systems or the failure of your toilet or sinks being able to drain smoothly and quickly.  The responsibility of unblocking drains lies with you as the property owner, so the first step that many people take is to try and unblock their drains themselves. This is a messy and dangerous task if you’re not a professional (it’s still messy as a professional!).

Simply using a shop bought plunger for drain unblocking is not sufficient, the way we do it is by locating the manhole and using specialist equipment to unblock the drainage system. Prevent further damage and save yourself time and energy by giving the responsibility to a trained professional such as our team at Budget Rod.
