Common causes of blocked drains

Garden waste

The most likely culprit of an external drain blockage is garden waste. Leaves, twigs, plastic bags, and other rubbish can easily clog up an external drain. This can usually take place when the waste gets caught in rain flow. If you notice any blockages, get in touch with Abbott Contractors and we can provide emergency drain unblocking

Grease & fats

A build-up of grease and fat can cause a drain blockage and will usually be found in drains surrounding a block of flats or house conversions. Our expert plumbers can attend any type of blockage within 30-90 minutes of your call*. If you require a blocked drain plumber, get in touch with Abbott Contractors.

Household items

When household items like cotton pads, wipes and sanitary products are flushed down the toilet, the build-up can cause blockages. These types of products aren’t designed to disintegrate like toilet paper and therefore can’t break down properly to avoid getting blocked. We provide 24-hour drain unblocking for situations like this, so get in touch if you require our help.
