Winter is fast approaching, and you know what that means – frozen pipes, blocked drains, and potential chaos for your home! Don’t let the cold weather catch you off guard. At SOS Drains, we’ve got the ultimate guide to help you prepare your drains for the winter freeze, ensuring a hassle-free season for your home.
Why Winter is a Drainage Challenge:
Winter introduces unique challenges to your drainage system. Freezing temperatures can turn water into ice, causing nasty blockages and even pipe to burst. Couple that with increased rainfall, and your drains face added pressure. It’s time to take action and safeguard your home!
Identifying and Tackling Issues:
Visual Inspection: Begin with a visual sweep of your drains, hunting for debris or foreign objects. For a more in-depth look, opt for our advanced CCTV drain survey – high-tech cameras revealing precise issues. Clear obstructions manually or enlist our professional expertise.
Professional Assessment: When in doubt, call in the experts! Our CCTV drain survey provides a thorough inspection, unveiling any hidden blockages or maintenance needs. Let’s catch issues before they escalate.
DIY Solutions for Minor Blockages:
Plunger Power: Dislodge minor obstructions with a vigorous plunge. Our recommended technique – push down, pull up, repeat.
Chemical Drain Cleaners: Combat kitchen and bathroom build-ups with chemical drain cleaners. Remember, use them sparingly to preserve your pipes.
Dealing with Frozen Pipes:
Frozen pipes can be a winter nightmare. Unleash these thawing techniques:
- Hair dryer or heating pad for careful warming.
- Pour warm (not boiling) water over the frozen pipe to break up the ice.
Insulate your pipes to thwart freezing. Our recommendation – affordable and efficient foam pipe insulation.
