Why should you insulate your conservatory?

Your gutters guide rain and storm water off your roof and away from your home. Not only protecting your home’s look, but also preventing damage to your property.

 

Regular clearing and cleaning are crucial to maintaining good gutters, ensuring that rainwater flows smoothly through them. When they fill up with leaves, sticks and other debris it can cause blockages and result in water creeping under the roof, damaging the interior or exterior of your property and sometimes damaging the foundations. Blocked up gutters can make nice homes for pests and rodents.

Tip for clearing your gutters:

  • Stay safe – always use equipment suitable for the job to avoid any risks.
  • Dress for the job – clearing gutters can be very messy.
  • Use something like a gutter scoop to help you clear away the debris.
  • Put something under where you are working to collect the leaves, sticks and debris. Makes the final clear up job easier at the end.
  • Once you’ve cleared your gutters use a hose to wash them out and check to see if you have any leaks.
  • Repair any leaks or problems with your gutters.

Ideally you should clean your gutters at least once a year. Do it more often if you have overhanging trees and after particularly bad weather.

What is UPVC?

Surface water drainage makes sure that rainwater which runs off your home or business premise roof or paved areas is drained away.  Moving through your drainpipes and gullies, it should flow directly into your sewer system or in some cases a soakaway, installed to prevent waterlogged lawns and flooding.

If your property doesn’t have any surface water drainage in place, then rainwater can’t go anywhere and could end up causing damage to your property.


Ensure your Surface Water Drainage is effective
Whether the surface water from your property is flowing into the sewers or a soakaway, it’s key you maintain your drains throughout the year. You can do this by:

  • Checking Your Pipes
    Check your pipes are intact, and that there are no leakages around your property. If you see any leakages or just want to inspect your pipes to understand what surface water drainage you have in place, then contact us at Evergreen Conservatory Insulation.
  • Adding a Drain Protector
    Invest in an external drain protector. Fallen leaves can cause problems by clogging your drains and causing a blockage. A drain protector will reduce the risk of this occurring.
  • Cleaning Your Pipes and Gullies
    Clean your drainpipes and gullies on a regular basis to help the rainwater flow smoothly through them. Keep them clear of leaves, mud, or rubble to prevent them getting blocked during stormy weather.

How long does a plaster finish take?

Poorly maintained drains will eventually lead to problems that you’ll need to sort before they cause damage to your property.

Whether that be blockages, clogs or smells from your drains. Taking care of your pipes will help you prevent problems from occurring and the costs associated with getting them fixed. And the solution is a lot down to changing some of your habits and thinking about what goes down your drains.

Think before you flush

Blockages can be caused by products such as wipes, rags and sanitary products being washed down the drain. A full or partial blockage from such products will cause waste to build up, disrupt the flow of water plus cause smells from your drains coming into your home or business premises.

To prevent blockages only flush water, human waste, and toilet paper.  Put everything else into a rubbish bin. This include sanitary items, cotton buds, rags, and condoms. Even those wipes that claim to be flushable can still block your pipes. If any foreign matter has gotten into your plumbing supply and is causing issues, you’ll likely need professional help to remove it and ensure your plumbing returns to normal.

Protectors

Invest in an external drain protector.  Fallen leaves can cause problems by clogging your drains and causing a blockage. A drain protector will reduce the risk of this occurring.

Fat, oil, and grease

When you pour fat, oil or grease down your kitchen sink it cools and turns hard. When this accumulates it causes blockages. Running hot water won’t solve the problem.  It will just move it further down your pipes. If you have fat, oil, or grease to dispose of, then:

  • Pour small amounts of leftover cooled fat, oil and grease into a paper towel or newspaper and dispose of it in the bin or compost.
  • Let fat cool down in pots and frying pans before scraping into the bin, before washing

If you have large amounts of cooking oil, then please recycle.

The Importance of Conservatory Insulation

Are you suffering with smelly drains?

Here at Evergreen Conservatory Insulation, we quite often get calls about smelly drains in homes and offices. With the smell not only affecting one room, but in some cases the entire property. Smells coming from drains are quite common but they can be a sign that something maybe wrong as drains are designed to flush away water and waste. But what can cause smelly drains?

Trapped food & fat
Even if you take great care not to wash food down the drain, fragments can still slip by. If it doesn’t wash out, it may decompose within your pipes, causing a bad odour.  Disposing of fat or oil down your sink can also result in a significant build-up within your pipework, capturing waste and causing a smell.

Partial Blockages
Partial blockages can be caused by products such as wipes, rags and sanitary products being washed down the drain. A partial blockage from such products will also cause waste to build up and could become the source of an offensive smell.

Your drain pipes
Your drain pipes and accessories can also cause smells. Depending what they are made from, they can rust and absorb waste materials over time causing bad smells in homes and offices.

Missing vent pipes
 
Your drain pipes should be connected to a network of vent pipes.These bring fresh air in and allow waste water, gas and odour to escape. If you are missing or have blocked vents then several issues can develop, including smelly drains.

Conservatory Health

Most blockages are caused by people flushing items down the toilet or sink that they shouldn’t. Things like wet wipes, rags, sanitary products, food, and fats. A clogged drain can cause you slower water drainage, corrosion, flooding, and in extreme cases, sewage backup into your home or business premises, potentially meaning costly repairs.

You can help protect yourself against blockages in your drainage system by following these simple tips.

Toilet 

To prevent blockages only flush water, human waste, and toilet paper.  Put everything else into a rubbish bin. This include sanitary items, cotton buds, rags, and condoms. Even those wipes that claim to be flushable can still block your pipes. If any foreign matter has gotten into your plumbing supply and is causing issues, you’ll likely need professional help to remove it and ensure your plumbing returns to normal.

Fats, Oil and Grease 

When you pour fat, oil or grease down your kitchen sink it cools and turns hard. When this accumulates it causes blockages. Running hot water won’t solve the problem. It will just move it further down your pipes. If you have fat, oil, or grease to dispose of, then:

  • Pour small amounts of leftover cooled fat, oil and grease into a paper towel or newspaper and dispose of it in the bin or compost.
  • Let fat cool down in pots and frying pans before scraping into the bin, before washing
