Drain Cleaning Methods

Everything that goes through your drain pipes affects them. For example, when you dispose of oily foods through your kitchen sink, the grease deposit builds up inside the pipes. This makes it difficult for water and other waste to pass. Over time, these wastes build up and completely clog the pipes.


Another reason why drains clog up is that someone might try to flush plastic, glass, or other such materials through the drains. These objects might get stuck between the pipes and start trapping more waste in the shrinking gaps in the pipe.


Can You Unblock a Drain Yourself?

In some cases of blockages, like grease build up in your pipes, you may be able to get the clogging cleared yourself. Try running hot water through the pipes for about five minutes. This can soften and wash away some types of clogs. You can also try using commercial sink and drain cleaners. Pour them into the sinkhole and wait a few minutes before running water down the drain slowly.


One issue with grime removers is that they are made of toxic materials. They may damage the pipes just as much as they would cut grease.


The best thing you can do to unblock drains is to call a professional drain cleaning service in Dublin. DC Drain Cleaning offers drain cleaning and repair service that will completely clear your blocked drains without causing any damage to the pipes.

What are the signs I have blocked drains?

There are a few things you can look out for, which may be able to indicate you have a blockage issue in your drains system. Some of the most common signs of a blocked drain include; inconsistencies in your water levels in your toilet, water draining away a lot slower than usual in your sink or when you flush your toilet, and of course, foul smelling odours being produced. 

Who is responsible for an external drain blockage?

In general, the homeowner is responsible for unblocking any drains within your property boundary such as, beneath your house, garden, and driveway. These are classed as private drains. Any drains which do not share pipes with your neighbours are your responsibility to unblock. More information can be found on “Irish Water” & “Citizens Advice”

Why am I experiencing blockages in my drains?

There are various scenarios where a CCTV survey would be extremely beneficial to diagnose and rectify your drainage issues. If you are experiencing re-occurring blockages or you suspect you may have a bigger problem such as a collapsed or broken pipework - a drain survey could be absolutely vital in understanding the issue at hand.

Preventitive Measures

Can I prevent further blockages?

Being mindful of what gets flushed into your drains, is by far, the most effective way of preventing further blockages in your drains. Here's some quick and easy tips you can take away in order to help keep your pipes flowing.

  • Ensure you do not flush un-biodegradable items such as nappies, sanitary towels, and wet wipes down the toilet.
  • Endeavour to keep fat or grease to pour down the drain whilst you are washing up in the kitchen. Try to recycle and reuse as much as posible, but when you need to dispose of cooking oil and fat, try pouring used cooking oil into a unrecyclable container & throw away with the reest of your general bin waste.
  • Try to remove fallen hair from around your shower plug hole after showering.
  • If you are experiencing recurring blockages, or you live in an older property which is more succeptable to persistent issues, we would recommend a CCTV Drain Survey. A survey will provide you with the information and analysis you need to discover, assess and fix any blockages that cannot be rectified with a simple unblock.
