If noticed quickly enough, a blocked drain can result in fewer issues than when it’s left untreated. After all, problems in the home are often easier to fix when caught early – an approach that also applies to drains, sinks, toilets and bathtubs. As professional contractors with a reputation for success, we can recognise these early warning signs and deliver the ideal solution to keep your property in ideal shape. Based in Croydon and serving Warlingham and beyond, we clear blocked drains on an emergency basis.

A Slow-Draining Shower or Bath
Does water begin to collect in your bath, sink or shower? This is a key sign of a blocked drain and will likely need professional care in due course. Some homeowners in Croydon, Warlingham and the surrounding locations can benefit from a hair catcher, while others may find it better to shave in a basin rather than releasing the hair into the sink.
Water will naturally take more time to flow around an obstruction, so any steps you can take will help to reduce the chance of a blockage.
If you notice bizarre sounds coming from your sink or bathtub, it may be a sign of trapped air due to a blockage. Noise is one of the earliest signs of an impending issue, so be sure to keep an ear out for any strange sounds coming from your Croydon or Warlingham drains. If you think you may soon experience a blocked drain, our team will be happy to advise.
With a reputation among home and business owners in the local area, we respond to urgent calls at any time of day, seven days a week.
Nothing indicates a blocked drain due to food quite like bad odours. When washing up, small amounts of food waste can flow into the pipes. While not usually a problem, they can collect to form a blockage alongside minerals or solidified grease. Should you notice a smell when you run the tap, it may be time to call your local drainage company.
Issues with Damp
Although the above signs are more common, structural issues can arise when your drains become clogged in the longer term. An efficient drainage system should allow water to flow away from your Croydon or Warlingham home, but a blockage may lead the water in another direction altogether. This can result in subsidence, cracks in the walls and damp, so preventing a blockage is always better than a cure.
Here at All Systems Flow, we work all over Warlingham, Croydon and beyond for customer peace of mind. We offer water jetting, CCTV surveys, and resolve blocked drains with a blend of efficiency and speed.
