Drain Unblocking in Sittingbourne Can Prevent Long Term Damage
Your home was not designed to accommodate water everywhere. The only room that’s really intended to be wet is the WC and even then there are limits to how much water is reasonably tolerated, what kind of water and where. When drains backup causing sinks and toilets to overflow the water released into your house can cause all manner of problems.
- Electrical System - Water and electricity don’t mix. Free standing water on the kitchen floor is a recipe for disaster. Water leaking down the interior of walls from an overflowing sink on an upper storey can short out your electrical system and cause irreparable damage to your home’s wiring.
- Floorboards, Walls and Ceilings - Wooden floors are not designed to be repositories for standing water. Water can cause hardwood floors to warp and crack requiring expensive repairs. Water seeping down walls can require repair and/or repainting. Water seeping down from an upper storey can easily require the replacement of entire ceilings.
- Your Health - What exactly is in that water that has overflowed from the toilet and is standing in great pools in the WC and leaking under the baseboards into the walls? The answer of course is all manner of harmful bacteria and worse. A toilet that regularly overflows represents a real and present health hazard to your entire family.
- Your Safety - Bacterial infections of all type are not the only danger posed by overflowing drains. Standing water on a floor also creates the very real possibility of unsuspecting inhabitants of the house or business slipping and doing themselves grave bodily harm. If you’re a business owner and this happens the result is called litigation.
