Encountering a blocked drain can be a surprisingly common issue for homeowners in Hughesdale, a South Eastern suburb of Melbourne. Various factors contribute to blocked drains – including hair accumulation in shower drains and improper disposal of items like tissues and sanitary products down toilets.

how to tell if your Hughesdale home has a blocked drain

Signs that you’re dealing with a blocked drain include noticeable delays in water draining down sinks, baths, or showers. Another sign is the occurrence of unusual gurgling sounds. If you detect unpleasant odours, particularly emanating from a toilet, it strongly suggests a blockage.

Furthermore, it’s advisable to conduct routine inspections for the presence of water puddles around your Hughesdale home, particularly on dry days. This serves as yet another red flag for a potential blocked drain. Additionally, vigilance is key when it comes to identifying any cracks in concrete walls or floors, as these can also signal the presence of a blocked drain—a situation that, if left unresolved, could lead to structural damage to your Hughesdale home.
