What Are the Common Causes of Blocked Drains in Carlisle?
Drainage systems are naturally hard-wearing and resistant to damage. They are designed to offer many years of reliable service to your property. However, these solutions can still fall victim to serious blockages.
These blockages can cause all kinds of problems, including serious structural damage.
If a drainage system is required to deal with inappropriate waste, or is regular worked over-capacity, it can easily become blocked. In fact, having to deal with unsuitable waste is the most common cause of drain blockage in the UK.
These waste types will commonly adhere to the inside of your pipes. Even a small amount of waste can capture other waste as it passes by. As such, blockages can develop from nothing in an extremely short period of time. It is also possible for blockages to develop so gradually that you will barely notice them.
What Kinds of Waste Are Unsuitable for Disposal in Drains?
Some of the most common kinds of unsuitable waste which are often disposed of in domestic and commercial drainage systems include:
- Solid Food Waste.
- Fats, Oils and Greases (FOG) Waste.
- Soap Scum and Cleaning Agents.
- Kitchen Towels.
- Baby Wipes and Wet Wipes.
- Feminine Products.
- Human Waste, such as Skin Cells and Strands of Hair.
Most domestic and commercial blockages are made up a range of material types. This can make them incredibly difficult to deal with. As such, you need a professional team to break them apart and ensure that these blockages are disposed of.
Natural Causes of Blocked Drains in Carlisle Properties
In addition to personal misuse, it is possible for some natural occurrences to create blockages within your drainage system. Just some of the naturally-developing blockages in your drainage system can include:
- Tree Root Intrusions.
- Rat and Vermin Infestation.
- Natural Material Build-Up, including Mud and Leaves.

Drain Unblocking in Carlisle
Thanks to our experience and access to industry-leading equipment, we can deal with all manner of total and partial blockages. Our team will work with you to ensure comprehensive commercial, domestic and industrial drainage systems operate as intended.
Using CCTV drain surveys, we will identify the exact location and composition of your blockage. From there, we will be able to recommend the best treatment. Our drain unblocking services rely on two main services; namely high-pressure water-jetting and drain rodding services.
High-Pressure Water-Jetting for Blocked Drains in Carlisle
Here at Drain Doctor South Cumbria, we can eliminate blockages of all kinds using high-pressure water-jetting. Our drainage engineers will force a large volume of water into your drains at a high pressure. This will cause the blockage to break apart and ensure that it is carried throughout your system.
High-Pressure water-jetting also has the benefit of cleaning your drains completely. This can eliminate waste trapped in your drainage system’s interior. This can prevent future blockages from developing. If the pressure and volume of water isn’t calculated correctly, it can result in damage to your drain pipes or contribute towards issues such as flooding or standing water across your property.
Drain Rodding for Blocked Drains in Carlisle
Our experienced team can deliver drain rodding to break apart blockages apart by hand. We use hard-wearing rods which can be manoeuvred throughout your system. As such, they can easily reach your blockage. By either pushing or pulling, our drainage engineers will be able to dislodge and break the issue apart.
