Blocked or broken drains do not fix themselves. They require human intervention. At the same time, taking matters into your own hands is almost never a good idea. Commercially available chemical drain cleaners are an imminent health hazard, and can also do long term damage to your pipes. If you have a clogged, cracked or broken drain the right thing to do is call the pros at Bromley Heating. We have more than 15 years’ experience keeping local drains in Beckenham flowing smoothly.
Water pipes have been around for thousands of years, yet in all that time no one has been able to invent a pipe that clears or repairs itself. But what causes clogged or broken drains in the first place? Blockages can be caused by introducing hair, grease, food, plastic bags or almost any type of non-liquid into the system. Cracked or broken drains can be caused by improper installation of the pipes, construction or renovation work, or unusually cold weather that causes water in the pipe to freeze and expand.
If you have a backed-up drain, hear strange noises emanating from your pipes, smell foul odours in the house, or notice part of your property is subsiding, call Bromley Heating immediately. Failing to get on top of a clogged or broken drain quickly can lead to significant damage to your home that will be very expensive to fix.
