how to tell if your Cheltenham home has a blocked drain

Signs that you could have a blocked drain include noticeable sluggishness in water drainage from sinks, baths, or showers. Another sign is the occurrence of peculiar gurgling noises. If you detect unpleasant odours, particularly coming from a toilet, it strongly suggests a blockage.

Moreover, it’s advisable to regularly inspect for the signs of water puddles around your Cheltenham home, especially during dry spells. This serves as another warning sign for a potential blocked drain. Additionally, staying vigilant is crucial in identifying any cracks in concrete walls or floors, as these can also indicate the presence of a blocked drain—a situation that, if neglected, could result in structural damage to your Cheltenham home.
