    How to Prevent Blocked drain from oil & fats

    Drain Unblocking in Dublin 

    We're all guilty of letting extra oil and fat go down the drain in the kitchen, but in this day and age of environmental consciousness and drain unblocking gets difficult, it's important to practice effective commercial kitchen waste management because FOGs can have some seriously negative effects in commercial kitchens.

    Nothing like the miseries of a blocked drain can derail a hectic Saturday sales time, delaying that crucial service schedule and causing havoc in the kitchen.

    A minor obstruction can quickly become a larger issue, leading to leaks, electrical damage, and overflows. All of these can be extremely expensive for a firm and perhaps result in business closure.

    How do I Identity and Remove Foul Bathroom Odours

    Determine the bathroom odour

    Finding out what is creating the stench and where it is coming from is your top priority. Does the smell have a stale, little sting to it? Fungus and mould, which are prevalent in moist places, are the cause of musty odours. Because there is always a water supply in the bathroom and many bathrooms are not properly ventilated to allow all of the moisture to drain, the bathroom is a haven for fungus.

     

    WARNING

     

    You may have a problem that fragrance cannot solve if your bathroom smells like rotten eggs or sewage or if the scent persists even after cleaning. That sewer odour could be sewer gas, which could require a quick fix or a more involved one. Even though the stench rarely puts you in risk, address it right away to get rid of it.

     

    Tip

     

    Look for hidden sources of mould and mildew, such as on the bottom edge or in the folds of a shower curtain and liner, if your bathroom has a musty odour. Never overlook cleaning the interior of a closed toothbrush holder. Check for clogged drains as these might emit odours as a result of amassing mould and mildew.

     

    Create a Plan

     

    Now that you have identified the issue, it is time to provide a solution! Ventilation is a wonderful place to begin. Let fresh air in by opening every window. Turn on the exhaust and ceiling fans. Some of the stenches you'll encounter at work will be lessened. Use of scented items, such as air fresheners or candles, should be avoided as they will only exacerbate the issue.

    Common Drain Blockage Causes & Quick Fixes

    Blocked drains can be a significant annoyance; let's be honest; they're not pretty.

    Sometimes it's as small as standing in an inch of water in the shower; other times, it's as serious as a sink overflowing.
    Most Irish households will come across drain blockages at one point or another. They're usually caused by a foreign object blocking the pipe, congealing oil or grease, or even just a build-up of hair. If a blocked drain is left unattended, the blockage can get much worse, causing terrible odours, damage to your pipework, and possibly even risk to your health.
