How drains get clogged up and blocked

Blocked pipes are often caused by items such as wet wipes, sanitary products and tampons being flushed down the loo and leftover fats and oils from cooking being poured down the sink.

This then causes blockages which are messy, unpleasant and can cause sewage to flow back inside your home. It can be upsetting for you and your loved ones and it’s also costly to fix.
