What do toilet unblocking services include?
Toilet unblocking services cover all the tasks and activities necessary to clear a clogged toilet. This includes finding out the cause of the blockage, preparing the site for toilet unblocking work, then applying the right fixes. Your hired plumber can also do a final test to ensure the toilet block is fixed and the drainage system works well.
Diagnosing the problem
Your hired plumber begins the toilet unblocking service by inspecting the toilet, water levels, and the entire drainage system to determine the cause of the blockage. This can either be a simple drain inspection or an in-depth CCTV drain survey. Before inspecting, they’ll shut off the main water supply, tape the flapper shut, place absorbent towels to soak up any overflows and lastly, ensure that the toilet bowl and work area is well ventilated.
Unclogging the toilet
Toilet blockage can either be due to items that fell into the toilet and have obstructed the waste outlet or by limescale in your pipes. If the cause of the blockage can’t be determined from casual inspection, drainage engineers can dislodge and force out the block using a plunger. If this doesn’t work, they can use other methods of clearing the obstruction.
They can apply an enzyme waste removal product, a homemade solution of baking soda and vinegar, dishwashing liquid and hot water, or a chemical drain cleaner. If the blockage is severe and these methods don’t work, they can use stronger, more specialised tools and equipment.
These tools can include a plumber’s snake or a pressure washer. A plumber’s snake can push and force out the obstruction while a pressure washer blasts a jet of pressurised water that’s powerful enough to dislodge and clear the blockage.
Testing the system
Once the appropriate declogging method is completed, your toilet is tested to check if the blocked toilet drain is now fixed. Should the toilet still not flush normally, your specialist can repeat the troubleshooting process and try other unclogging methods until the toilet flushes without issues.
Cleaning the site
If there is any toilet overflow during the troubleshooting and unclogging, your plumber can clean up the mess. This includes disposing of any absorbent towels, old newspapers, or other materials used to soak up the overflow. Some plumbers may also offer to mop the bathroom floor and disinfect it afterwards.
Once your toilet works as it should again, why stop there? Go ahead and hire someone to clean your floors and make your bathroom look like new again! And in case you want your entire home tidied up and not just your bathroom, you can also get a cleaner to do the mopping and vacuuming for you.
