New Year, Clean Drains

Many people love to make New Year’s resolutions, and so do we. It’s a great way for us to give ourselves a kickstart into achieving something we’ve been putting off for a long time.

Some resolutions can be easier to keep than others, so we’ve got the perfect new year goal for your home that’s easy to achieve and will benefit everyone – New year, clean drains!

Here are our top tips on making this year the year of sparkling drains.


Get A Professional Clean

Start the year off strong and contact us today on 0800 849 8099 and book us in to professionally clean your drains. Our experts will make sure you start the year blockage free and give your pipes and drains the best clean possible, so you can keep them in tip top condition.


Give your drains a health check routine

Mark your new 2021 calendar with a regular reminder to give all your drains a routine clean. Use a good commercial drain cleaner, or even a simple hot water flush-out, each month, to help eliminate any sort of build-up of fat or food particles.


Drain vs Bin

Keep an eye on everything that is going down your drain and don’t use it as a bin. Excess fats, grease, food waste and hair can all cause blockages and bad smells. Try to dispose of any excess fats in empty, used disposable containers for ease and less mess.


Invest in some simple cleaning tools

There are lots of tools on the market to help keep your drains clean, such as long brushes for cleaning soap scum from your pipes and drain snakes/weasels – perfectly designed for pulling hair from your plugholes. These tools are low cost but highly effective at keeping on top of preventing build up.
