As a drainage company, we see lots of things that people flush away that should never be flushed down the toilet, but disposed of properly.
Toilet unflushables we see on a regular basis
- Baby wipes
- Make-up removal wipes
- Sanitary wear
- Ear buds
- Incontinence pads
- Toilet fresheners
All of these items can potentially cause blockages to your drainage system. This, in turn, will need clearing and comes with a cost.
Don’t flush it, bin it!
“Don’t flush it, bin it” is what we suggest to customers after we have visited and unblocked their drains.
Kitchen sink sins we see on a regular basis
Drain blockages also happen when people wash things down the kitchen sink. We regularly unblock kitchen sinks and drains blocked from:
- Fat washed off baking trays and saucepans
- Coffee grounds
- Scraps washed from plates
- Leftover sauces from the Sunday roast
Don’t rinse it, bin it!
If you need to use a fork to push it down the plug hole, it is meant for the bin.
Are your drains blocked? If you notice a nasty smell, your sink is overflowing or your toilet not flushing, contact us to unblock it for you.
