If you can smell a noxious odour in your home the chances are it’s coming from a blocked drain. The smell is a gas called hydrogen sulphide, otherwise known as ‘sewer’ gas, and is often produced by the breakdown of waste material. Not only is it extremely unpleasant it also contains methane and bacteria which can be dangerous to your health. Symptoms may include headaches, irritation to your eyes, nausea, or dizziness. Sounds nasty! That’s because it is -
DO NOT IGNORE blocked smelly drains! Flushing bleach down drains and using bicarbonate of soda may just mask an underlying issue. While it may be a minor issue, such as a dried or cracked seal within the drain system, it could also be a bigger problem such as a broken sewer or vent pack. Unless investigated with a drain survey the root cause may not be uncovered – until it’s too late.
If the smell doesn’t go away, then it’s time to call in the experts and arrange a CCTV drain survey.
CCTV drain surveys that are guaranteed.

Did you know Soap can cause blockages!
Traditional soap bars are made with grease or fat and when combined with minerals in your water they leave a hard residue. This hard residue can stain bath fittings and clog pipes.
TIP – change to a soap free body / face wash, and treat your pipes to a pressure wash clean to remove build up.
