Types of Blocked Drains
Older buildings are especially susceptible to blocked drains. The reason for this is due to the age and deterioration of drainage systems. Modern systems require heavier demand that older buildings might not be equipped for. Tree roots entering cracks in old and new drains is a major cause of blocked drains.
Additionally, depending on where your pipes are located, they may be more vulnerable to different blockages. Allanna Plumbing has years of experience working with kitchen blockages, bathroom blockages, laundry sinks, showers, toilets, stormwater drains, and any other blockage you may be facing.
Blocked Toilet & Shower Drains
Two of the most common blockages are blocked toilets and blocked showers.
While seemingly harmless, blocked toilet and shower drains can lead to significant damage. This can include the overflow of waste into your backyard garden, or even into the building. This will lead to expensive cleanups, strong odours, and potential damage to your building.
Like most plumbing problems, blocked toilets and showers are the result of accumulated damage. To prevent major damage from occurring, having your drains serviced at the earliest signs of blockage is essential.
One major sign of a blockage includes audible gurgling noises from your toilet or shower.

Blocked drains can cause significant damage to your home. Accumulated stagnant water will give off a stale and moldy odour. This awful smell can stick to surfaces and fill your building with an unpleasant and unhealthy atmosphere.
Also, the water can make its way into the corners and foundations of the building and compromise its structural integrity. The dampness can get into the floorboards or walls, which leads to water stains, discoloration, and deformation. Failure to address it for an extended period of time can make these areas prone to flooding.
Additionally, stagnant water is a breeding ground for mosquitoes, pests, and different insects that may transmit germs and diseases. Also, it will make that area subject to bacteria, mold, and mildew.
