Blocked Drains

A blocked drain is one of the most common plumbing woes, and it can really put a damper on your day. Whether you’re dealing with ankle-deep water while trying to enjoy your morning shower, you have a blocked toilet overflowing all over your bathroom floor, or you have a sink that’s refusing to empty, you need help from a professional. At Service Experts, we are here to help with blocked drains in Melbourne.

Common Causes

At Service Experts, we get calls for blocked drains in Melbourne every day. While we do see some surprising things once in a while, most blockages are caused by a few common culprits:

  • Grease
  • Hair
  • Excess toilet paper
  • “Flushable” hygiene products
  • Soap buildup
  • Tree roots
  • Foreign objects like toys, jewelry

How to Prevent Blockages

Taking care of your drains and using them appropriately is the best way to avoid clogs and blockages. Never put grease, oil, or fat down the drain. If you have a garbage disposal, use it responsibly. Keep things like fibrous vegetables, bones, pasta, and rice away. Put mesh covers on your drains to trap hair, food debris, etc., and empty them regularly.

To avoid toilet clogs, be careful about what you flush. Nothing other than waste or toilet paper should ever go in your toilet. Feminine hygiene products and personal wipes – even those that are marketed as “flushable” – should always go in the trash can. The same goes for cotton balls, paper towels, etc.

Sometimes, clogs still occur despite your best intentions. When you have a stubborn blocked drain in Melbourne, we can help. Our plumbers are the best in the business, and they use powerful equipment to remove even the most stubborn blockages without damaging your home or your property. IF you have a blocked drain and need a helping hand, call Service Experts today.

I have used Service Experts, both plumbers & electricians for repair & maintenance & for upgrading & installing taps, toilets & showers. I haven’t got a bad word to say about them, & they will always be my ‘go to’ people when I need electrical & plumbing services. From the office staff to the tradesmen they have been courteous, efficient & reliable. And, as each of my jobs was completed my house was left in the same condition as when they arrived. All packaging, rubbish & the replaced appliances were taken away. Just a pleasure to deal with them.

They were professional. Called before they came and Paul was extremely helpful . He offered to sand down the opening so that our new cooktop could just fit . That saved me getting in someone to go that and I was most grateful. The cooktop fitted in perfectly and looks excellent

Staff on the phones were lovely, however we called for same day service at 8am on Wednesday for a leaking shower.They called back at 2:30pm to advise they couldn't make it the same day anymore and booked me in between 12-4pm on Friday.Received a call at 3:30pm on Friday saying they now cant make it until Monday or Tuesday.We called them because they advertise same day service and 6 days later would have been when they were able to come fix the leak. Aka 6 days of a leaking shower...

As a business owner and business consultant, I was extreamly impressed with the entire experience I've had today with Service Experts! Found out about them from a fridge magnet in my letterbox - I'm the lucky one.The booking experience was amazing, with no waiting time on the call and the customer service lady was very swatched on. Booked, confirmed, received text and email confirmation within 30 minutes after the call.The electrician called 15 minutes before the scheduled arrival time and he arrived on the dot. My eyes were brightened up when I saw him putting on protective slippers as soon as he entered the house and had placed floor covering where he works leaving absolutely no shoe marks, dirt or dust at all - very impressed.Inspection of the work that needs to be done, quoted, actioned 2 brand new smoke detectors replacements, issues certificate, quick product demo and payment settled all completed within 45 minutes.The team at Service Expert is second to none with their professional approach and attention to detail. I would highly recommend their membership program - they will be my go to for all plumbing and electrical services for life.

Nothing but good news about Service Experts. Darryl and his team were able to solve a long running problem with my heating/air conditioning, and have handled all my electrical and plumbing needs. They arrive when they say they will, with plenty of forward notice. They are efficient and super helpful. The whole team are really friendly and willing to go the extra mile. A membership with Service Experts means priority service and ongoing advice and support whenever needed. Darryl has answered my endless dumb questions and solved all my issues big and small. Thanks also to Tanya for always being available when needed. Like I said, nothing but good news.

We had previously had a very large plumbing job done by the firm to replace our ancient sewer plumbing. We needed some work done on some newer plumbing & got them back. I have always found Service Experts highly professional, reliable & open & fair with cost. If I need work done in any area that they provide service, no question I’ll call them.

I initially contacted Service Experts to install a new oven. Their response was quick, professional and accommodating. I received same day service, for which I am most grateful. I also had a number of electrical components replaced, including electrical panel, which previous panel proved to be faulty and unsafe. As did my outdated smoke alarms. Thank goodness many issues were uncovered and rectified! I now feel safe! Electrician was very thorough, friendly, helpful and tidy, taking care to cover and protect timber floors to avoid damage, and cleared away all rubbish when works completed. And so patient, working within a very confined and restricted space. Also very 'covid' conscious. I will be using their services again. Very happy customer! Thank you Service Experts.

Can’t recommend ‘Service Experts’ more highly. The initial consultation with Darryl was very thorough and gave us options to consider. Daryl was very genuine and we felt comfortable for Darryl and his team to complete the job. Albert came the following day to complete the pipe repair and was very friendly, professional and informative. Albert used layman’s terms to explain what he was doing, ensuring that I understood the whole process. We wish we could give more stars! The overall experience with ‘Service Experts,’ right from our initial contact with Tanya over the phone, to the completion of job, was excellent. We will definitely use them again and would recommend them to family and friends.
