Building a new office block

We have a big site at work but after the company expanded we were running very short on office space. Most of our accounts team was in a demountable office and they were really hot in summer and cold in winter. It was so much better for the whole team once we got the new office block built on site. This blog talks about the process of building a new office block, including the design and construction of a block for your team. I hope it will be useful for anyone looking to build a new office block on their site.

What You Should Know About Drain Cleaning

Troy Medina

Having blockages in your plumbing can be an incredibly frustrating experience. Clogs in your kitchen and bathroom drain not only make it unsanitary for you to use the sinks and tub but it can result in a foul stench pervading your home. Moreover, the more severe the clogs, the higher the likelihood that they will start to negatively affect the water pressure in your home too. Thus, it is not surprising that a number of homeowners may choose to try to tackle the blockages on their own. While this sounds like an affordable idea, there are a few things to have in mind.

Read on for what you should know about drain cleaning.

Do not pour hot water down your drains

One of the quick fixes a majority of homeowners resort to when they notice that their drains are blocked is immediately pouring hot water through them. The hot water, granted, will break down any coagulated fats and food particles that have stuck to the interior walls of your plumbing. However, this is a temporary fix. First, the broken down debris will only accumulate further down your plumbing and this will translate into bigger blockages. Second, if you have PVC pipes, the hot water wills steadily damage the material of your plumbing, which will result in premature cracks and subsequent leaks.

Do not pour industrial strength cleaning agents down your drains

Another quick fix that homeowners seek when their plumbing is blocked is buying industrial strength cleaners under the impression they will get rid of clogs for good. These cleaning agents comprise acidic substances, as these are what will putrefy the debris inside your pipes. But the same qualities that allow these compounds to break down the particles are what will erode the interior lining of your plumbing, especially if you have iron pipes. Additionally, handling these chemical cleaners on your own is never advisable since you can end up injuring yourself by inhaling the fumes or spilling droplets on your skin.

Do enlist the services of professional drain cleaning services

The only professional that is trained to handle your blocked drains is a certified plumber. Your plumber will effectively get rid of the blockages because they have the right equipment to dislodge the clogs. Furthermore, a plumber knows how best to handle the equipment so that they do not damage your plumbing, which is what is likely to happen if you choose to snake your plumbing hardware on your own.
