Main Drainpipe and Floor Drain Blockage

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

Main Drainpipe and Floor Drain Blockage

Main drainpipe and floor drain blockage are serious issues that can cause internal flooding in your home or business. Your main drainpipe may be divided into two parts, the stormwater drain and the sewer drain. Each of these drains is responsible for carrying certain water waste away from your building. A stormwater drain may become blocked due to build up of leaves or other debris in the drainpipe, creating a backup then eventually creates blocked floor drains.

Biofilm buildup

Biofilm buildup is the name given to the collection of bacteria and other microorganisms which inhabit your plumbing system, as well as their waste. Biofilm usually looks like a dark, sticky slime which gathers in your fixtures, drains, and pipes. Biofilm buildup can cause issues relating to hygiene and cleanliness, so it is important to know how to deal with it before it gets out of hand.

The effects of biofilm build-up

The bacteria and related waste which make up biofilm pose a biological hazard, and can cause ailments such as those caused by e.coli, salmonella, and listeria. Ear infections, MRSA, and Legionnaires Disease can also be caused by the presence of excess biofilm in a plumbing system.
Kitchens, both domestic and commercial, are particularly risky areas seeing as disease vectors such as raw meat and fish are present. These disperse more bacteria into your system and increase build-ups, which often attach themselves to metal aeration screens on taps. This is a risk because biofilm buildup can break off from the screen and come into contact with utensils or find its way onto hands or into drinking water.
If you have experienced blockages or backups in your system, biofilm could be growing as a side effect. If water from a back up or blockage leaks or floods surfaces, you should properly disinfect and dry these surfaces to minimise any associated health risks.

How to prevent the build-up of biofilm

The most simple way to prevent excessive growth of biofilm is to clean your fixtures by hand. Using a cleaning spray and damp cloth, wipe away any residue or stains which appear on your fixtures, and be sure to thoroughly wipe down the metal aeration screen. An old toothbrush is a good tool for cleaning hard to reach spots. If there are some stains or marks which are hard to get off, try using baking soda to break them down. It is a good idea to remove the metal aeration screen from your taps from time to time and soak them in a cleaning solution. As a general rule, try to clean food preparation areas thoroughly to prevent the spread of bacteria.
A blocked drain is the perfect place for biofilm buildup to grow, so it is important that you have your drains cleaned if this is an issue. Clearing a blocked drain with a water jet machine is the perfect way to deal with this problem. If you are encountering main drainpipe and floor drain blockage in Melbourne, we can repair it at the source of the problem.

Drainfast are the sink drain repair Melbourne experts as drain cleaning plumbers with a wealth of experience and knowledge in maintaining, repairing, and installing all manner of sink drains and blocked toilet or bathroom drains, kitchen drains, and storm water drains whether they are commercial, industrial, or domestic. Sink drain repair is called for when a sink drain has become blocked or damaged, and should be subject to extensive drain cleaning in order to prevent the more serious problem of a blocked sewer drain backup occurring.
There are many things that can cause a sink drain to become blocked, the most common instigator of sink drain repair that our Melbourne drain cleaning plumbers see is the washing away of food items, especially oil, down sink drains and other drains in your home or business. Sink drains are not designed to carry food waste or other debris, they connect to your storm water drain which carries ‘clean’ or ‘grey’ water away from your home or business and connects to the local storm water drain network. If you wash items such as food particles or oil down your sink drain, you may find yourself calling a Melbourne drain cleaning plumber for sink drain repair.
Sink drain repair is also something you can attempt yourself if you would like to try and use natural drain cleaners or a plunger to clear your blocked sink drain without the assistance of a drain cleaning plumber. We have a number of articles on our site that walk you through the process of making your own natural drain cleaning products and applying them to blocked sink drains, and often they can be very useful where the sink drain is suffering a minor clog due to flushed food debris or oil.

With that said, if you require professional sink drain repair and can settle for nothing but the most reliable and cost-effective sink drain repair plumbers in Melbourne, then give Drainfast a call.
