Need a blocked drain plumber in Melbourne? Our team will fix your blocked sink, drain or toilet in no time!
Blocked drains are not only common plumbing problems, but they can also be the most inconvenient. They are usually caused by a build up of everyday household waste like grease, hair and food residue. Toscano specialise in blocked drained plumbing for homes and businesses in Melbourne of all sizes.
Here’s a closer look at the types of drain blockages:
Blocked Kitchen Sink
Food scraps, grease and other foreign objects washed down the kitchen drain can cause blockages. Grease and oil shouldn’t be poured down the drain because they solidify, accumulating on the walls of the pipe, rather than flowing through it.
Blocked Shower Drain & Bathroom Sink
Hair is the number one cause of shower drain and bathroom sink blockages. It can clog on its own, but also when combined with soap scum.
Flushing any items other than sewage and toilet paper will cause toilet blockages. Nappies and baby wipes are two of the biggest culprits here.
Tree roots searching for moisture can find the smallest crack and enter sewer lines. Tree root intrusion can cause a complete blockage or cause other matter to catch in the roots and clog. Fixing this is definitely not a DIY job and a blocked drained plumber Melbourne should be contacted to resolve this issue.
Why turn to Toscano for a drainage plumber in Melbourne?
Specialised equipment allows us to dislodge and remove the clog causing your drain blockage. Sewer blockages can occur in the main line, or one of the secondary lines. To determine the location of the blockage, so that we can clear it most successfully, we may suggest the use of our CCTV camera and locator.
Once we confirm the location of the blockage, high-pressure water jetting is the first method Toscano Plumbing turn to for unblocking drains. Often, no further steps will need to be taken. However, should the clog prove more stubborn, our specialised drainage plumber will attach a cutting head to break down the clog so it can pass.
Thanks to the latest technology, drain cleaning is easier than ever, saving you time and money.
