Yes, blocked drains are considered a plumbing emergency and need to be cleared as soon as possible to avoid any further damage to your plumbing systems and pipes. Please read this blog until the end to understand what causes blocked drains, why is it an emergency, & whether you need an emergency plumber with a quick response time.
What causes blocked drains?
Drains are everywhere around us. From toilets to sinks to bathrooms, we are surrounded by one or the other type of drain in our household. There are two primary reasons why a drain gets clogged.
The first one is when it gets caused due to a foreign object creating a blockage. Things that can be dumped easily down the drain, such as children’s toys, soap, food build-up, hygienic products, electronic trash, and other foreign things, are likely to ultimately clog the pipes.
Another reason why drains get clogged is the aging of pipes. Pipes ultimately collapse or dirt builds up over time causing them to clog. Not to forget, tree roots can also penetrate drains and pipes and can cause disruption.
Why is a blocked drain an emergency?
Blocked drains are a problem right away because if they are untreated, water overflowing from it is likely to cause water-related damages to the property.
Moreover, slower drains are a problem as well, because when disregarded, they invite bigger problems over time. They not only cause external damage to your property but also can damage one’s plumbing system.
Assessing whether your drains needs to be looked right away is a tough question. Because some blocked drain related issues can wait a few days, while others may not. However, we can help you decide what is right for you in those cases.
