Josh and Matt did a fantastic job in repairing the roof and replacing some downpipes. They were courteous, prompt and professional in their work. I thoroughly recommend ADKO for the services that they provide.

Adam, Dean & Ben (together with their team) have been such a pleasure to deal with and assist us regarding a leaking roof that was causing me serious stress and anxiety. All the men were delightful to deal with and prior to the work commencing, came out and put up a tarp over our roof as it was leaking before work commenced which was just incredible. Very honest and upfront with their quote noting that they were most likely going to be more expensive but the quality of their work, their professionalism and prompt response and service is unmatched. The work was completely within a day by a decent sized group of men which was great. All rubbish was removed and my premises was cleaned before they left. Extremely pleased with their service and workmanship.

Signs To Identify A Blocked Drain

Every homeowner dreads the inconvenience of a blocked drain, but catching the problem early can save a lot of hassle. Knowing what to look for is half the battle. Below are some telltale signs that indicate a potential blockage in your drainage system.

Slow Drainage

A primary symptom of a blocked drain is water that drains slower than usual. Whether you're dealing with a kitchen sink, bathtub, or shower, if the water lingers longer than it should, it's often due to obstructions within the drain. Accumulations of hair, soap residues, food remnants, and grease can gradually create blockages, impeding the water flow. While it might initially seem like a slight delay in drainage, ignoring it can lead to a fully blocked drain. Addressing the issue at its onset can prevent more significant complications and ensure the smooth functioning of your drainage system.

Unpleasant Odours

One of the undeniable signs of a blocked drain is the emergence of unpleasant odours. When a drain becomes blocked, trapped food particles, grease, and other organic debris begin to decay, releasing a foul stench. This unmistakable smell, often reminiscent of rotten eggs, is a clear indication of a blockage within the drainage system. If you notice these odours consistently around your sinks or bathroom fixtures, it's a telltale sign of a blocked drain that requires immediate attention. While occasional flushing with hot water might provide temporary relief, a persistent odor often signals a deeper issue with the blocked drain that warrants a thorough professional assessment.

Visible Blockages

Sometimes, the evidence of a blocked drain is clear and direct. If you can see physical obstructions like hair clumps, soap buildup, or food particles at the drain's surface, it's a blatant sign of a blockage. While some visible blockages can be easily removed, they often hint at deeper, unseen issues.

Gurgling Noises

Distinctive gurgling or bubbling sounds coming from your drains aren't just random noises; they're often the audible alarms of blocked drains. When a drain starts to clog, the normal flow of water is disrupted, causing it to churn and bubble around the obstruction, leading to these characteristic sounds. Especially noticeable after flushing a toilet or emptying a sink, these gurgling noises can indicate air trapped in the pipes due to a blockage. If you consistently hear these sounds, it's a strong indication of a developing blocked drain. Addressing the issue promptly can prevent a minor blockage from evolving into a major plumbing concern.

Pooling Water

When water starts to gather around shower drains, sinks, or on bathroom floors, it's more than just a slip hazard—it's a clear sign of a blocked drain. Over time, obstructions from hair, soap residues, and other debris can restrict water flow, causing it to back up and pool around the drain. This stagnant water not only poses a risk of mold growth and water damage but also indicates an underlying blockage in the drainage system. If left unattended, what starts as a small puddle can escalate, leading to potential flooding. It's essential to address these pooling signs early, ensuring that the blocked drain is cleared and water can flow freely.

Damp Patches in the Garden

Discovering unexpected damp or soggy areas in your garden can be more than just a result of recent rainfall; it's often a subtle sign of a blocked external drain. Over time, obstructions from leaves, roots, or debris can impede the flow in outdoor drainage systems. When these drains become blocked, water can seep out, leading to damp patches or even puddles in your garden. These wet areas can be particularly noticeable in contrast to drier surrounding areas and might even lead to unusually lush or green patches of grass due to the excess moisture. If you spot these signs, it's crucial to investigate and address the potential blocked drain, preventing more extensive damage to your landscape and property.
