Milbur Plumbing: Sydney’s Drain Cleaning Specialists

One of the most overlooked facilities within our homes and business properties is our drainage system. Functioning correctly, our drains carry away dirty water and waste without fuss or fanfare, meaning we only tend to notice them when something is amiss.

While it may not currently be on the top of your to-do list, keeping your drains clean and free from debris should be a matter of routine maintenance and not left until a blockage forms. Allowing problems to develop until they become an emergency can lead to property damage and also subject occupants to contaminants that could harm their wellbeing.

Keeping things running smoothly involves preventative action. Milbur Plumbing offers comprehensive maintenance service, including professional drain cleaning, Sydney-wide.

Why It’s Important to Have Your Drains Cleaned

Regular drain cleaning should be undertaken annually and is considered one of the very best ways to reduce the number of plumbing problems within your property. This can save you money in the long run and prevent stressful emergency situations such as water leaking into your home.

Reasons to get your drains cleaned include

While, ideally, drains would remain free-flowing, blockages do occur even in the most careful of households. A regular drain cleaning schedule will ensure small issues do not turn into big ones. Blockages can incur damage such as flooding, leaks, burst pipes, and toilet backflow issues.
A blocked drain is a hazard to the health of a property’s occupants. This is due to the standing water allowing a build-up of bacteria to occur which can lead to some nasty health complications such as mould and even disease. Should the problem become bad enough to backflow, this bacteria, mould and disease can enter your living space, endangering occupants.
Catching issues early is the best way to avoid bigger, more costly repairs. Small issues such as tree roots poking through or a build-up of fat lining a pipe may not be a problem now but soon may well be. Clearing the problem now prevents this.
Due to the build-up of bacteria and mould within a non-clean pipe, you may experience bad odours when turning on the tap, starting the dishwasher, or doing a load of laundry. This unpleasant experience can be reduced dramatically by having Milbur Plumbing conduct a thorough drain cleaning service.
In the case of stormwater drains and sewer lines, without performing regular cleaning, pipework may become so clogged that damage to your lawn, patio and nearby structures could occur through water damage.

Signs You Need Drain Cleaning Services in Sydney

1. Slow draining sinks

Almost all households have experienced slow draining sinks at one time or another. After washing up, for instance, you may find that upon pulling the plug the water refuses to drain away or does so incredibly slowly.

Slow drainage is a classic sign that your drains may need cleaning and could indicate a significant blockage within your pipework. Getting the problem sorted quickly can prevent bigger problems from occurring.

2. Water backflow

Another sign your drains need cleaning is that you may notice water re-emerging from your drains, toilet, and storm drains. Water that can’t seem to make up its mind whether to drain away or return to your sink mean you need the help of a plumbing professional.

3. Overflowing toilet

One of the more unpleasant signs your drains need professional cleaning is an overflowing toilet. While this can sometimes occur due to an overuse of toilet paper and should resolve itself, there may be more significant issues causing an overflow to occur. It is difficult to tell without the help of professionals such as Mibur Plumbing who can use inspection technology to tell.

4. Bad smells coming from your drains

A bad smell is a sign water is sitting within your pipework and allowing the formation of bacteria. While this is not necessarily always caused by a blockage, it is one of the most common reasons and can cause some serious health complications if allowed to fester and backflow.

If you notice a bad smell, it’s time to call in the professionals.

5. Strange sounds coming from the drains

While we may consider a gurgling sink to be pretty normal, persistent and unusual sounds emanating from your pipework point towards partial or full drain blockages that require diagnosis and cleaning.

These sounds are a result of noxious gases being disrupted by blockages and water that not only cause a bad odour but also become a nuisance in itself.

Milbur Plumbing: Expert Drain Cleaners

Here at Milbur Plumbing, we use our combined experience and cutting-edge plumbing technology to get to the bottom of your problem and clean offending drains thoroughly and effectively. We can tell exactly which sections of drainage are affected and can recommend the best solution as a result.

Locate and inspect using CCTV

One of the tools within our plumbing arsenal is a snaking CCTV inspection camera. This appears as a reel of cable and is inserted into your drainage system using a controllable camera tip to see the inside of your pipework.

This is viewed live on a portable monitoring station allowing your plumbing professional and yourself to see the condition of the inside of your drains. Based on this information, Milbur Plumbing will recommend a cleaning solution.

Drain cleaning using eel or jet blasting

In the case of blockages and partial blockages, Milbur Plumbing will recommend the use of an electric eel or water jet blasting. Once we’ve located a problem or section of pipework that should be cleaned, we will apply one or both of these devices to your system, leaving it clean and free-flowing.

Experiencing a blocked drain in Sydney? Milbur Plumbing can help!

While we always recommend preventative maintenance of your drainage system including an annual clean, we understand blockages do occur as part of everyday life. In these events, Milbur Plumbing Blocked Drains employs the following techniques to resolve even the most stubborn blocked drain:

Drain snake

Drain snakes, also known as “electric eels” are flexible cables with a mechanical cleaning head attached. This thoroughly scrapes and dislodges any blockages within the pipework and has been a go-to tool for plumbers for decades. The forked or brushed end rubs away at anything lining or blocking your drain using considerable force to do so.

Professional drain snakes are capable of dislodging even the most powerful of blockages and are used by Milbur Plumbing in the case of particularly stubborn blockages or cleaning requirements.

Jet blasting

The preferred method of cleaning, however, is jet blasting. Milbur Plumbing uses state-of-the-art jet blasting equipment that cuts through, dislodges, and forces away blockages, residue, grease, tree roots, and anything else that should not be within your drainage system. Jet blasting is Milbur Plumbing’s preferred method of drain cleaning for the following reasons:
  • Fast, zero damage to pipework
  • Non-invasive, no-dig cleaning
  • No chemical solution
  • Suitable for all drain cleaning situations

Chemical drain cleaner

Milbur Plumbing will also, occasionally, rely on chemical reagents to dissolve residue lining drains and dislodge clogs. These power, caustic chemicals can not be bought over the counter in a store and should only be handled by professionals.

These are particularly good at dissolving drainage issues such as hair, fat, grease, and grime. After reacting with these, water is introduced to the drainage system to allow the dissolved matter to be flushed away safely.

Milbur Plumbings Tips for Preventing a Clogged Drain

1. Use a plug strainers

It’s not always possible to prevent things from falling into the sink or near a drain, In the case of a shower, for example, hair will naturally fall from our bodies and flow towards the sink hole. When washing up, small bits of food will naturally be left within the bowl and find their way into our drainage systems.

It is important, then, to use plug hole strainers. These small metal or plastic grills will prevent debris from entering your drain and can help stop the loss of earrings, rings etc. down the drain.

2. Dispose of kitchen waste in the bin

Before washing up plates or loading them into the dishwasher, be sure to scrape all food waste into the bin, including residual sauces. While a small piece of food may seem insignificant, these can accumulate and stick to residue within the pipework and contribute to blockages.

3. Never pour oil or grease down the drain

All old oil, fat, grease, and melted butter should be collected in a bottle or container and thrown in the rubbish. While these may go down the plug hole well enough, they soon solidify within the cooler pipework and form a thick, sticky coating on the inside of your drainage system.

Eventually, this stubborn mass of fat causes troublesome blockages with other debris sticking to it, compounding the issue.

4. Don't flush objects other than human waste and toilet paper down the drains

Out of sight, out of mind is definitely not the right way to think about things going down your toilet. While a toilets flush is itself quite powerful, anything other than water, waste, and toilet paper will likely cause drainage problems.

Wipes, sanitary products, cotton balls, and anything else should always be put into a suitable rubbish bin instead.

Drain Cleaning Home Remedies

While nothing will get your drains cleaned quite as well as a water jet blast from Milbur Plumbing, there are a couple of things you can try yourself:

Baking soda and vinegar

Tried and true, baking soda and vinegar is an old-fashioned remedy for drainage problems that have stood the test of time. Acting as a mild caustic reagent, this fizzy solution dissolves gunk and grime within the pipework and allows it to be flushed away, leaving your drainage system cleaner than it was before.

Simply mix around 170 grams of bicarbonate of soda in with 300ml of vinegar. Stir this until it becomes frothy and quickly pour it down the affected drain. Let this sit overnight before flushing the mixture away by letting the tap run.

Drain snake

You can also purchase commercially available drain snakes. These hand-powered tools are not as powerful as the ones used by professionals and do not have the same reach. Nevertheless, for mild, shallow blockages and cleaning they allow you to scrape and dislodge the lining of your pipework.

If you are in a pinch and do not have time to purchase a drain snake, a bent wire coathanger can work almost as well, just remember to bend a hook into both ends so you don’t lose it down the drain. While you can’t really damage pipework in this way, it is still recommended to contact professional plumbers such as MIlbur Plumbing as soon as possible.
