The festive period is a busy time for a drainage contractor

Christmas is usually regarded as a time for relaxation and spending time with family and friends. However, this is also one of the busiest periods of the year for those involved with drainage maintenance. This is because these specialists are required to sort out the added strain put on the sewerage system.

When people have tucked into their Christmas dinners and have to deal with the leftovers, they often think nothing of pouring away all the fat from their turkey down the sink. Most householders do not do this wittingly of course, but it can actually lead to drainage blockages and other problems during the holidays.

So next time you have a roast dinner and are tempted to dispose of the fats in this way, think again and consider what the implications are for the sewerage system and the fact these liquids can soon solidify down there and cause blockages.

Instead, you should think carefully about the sorts of things poured down the sink and flushed in the toilet as they can end up in emergency repair work for drainage companies who have to try and remedy the problems caused to the network. Due to the work put in by these specialists, our drains can remain trouble-free through Christmas and New Year.
