Housing Officer, Farah Ebrahem, provides feedback on her recent inspection:
On my estate inspection I received reports that the drain in the bin chute cupboard at Wheatstone House was blocked and rain water was entering through the communal area on the ground floor.
The drain has now been cleared and Mears has also unblocked another drain in the Wheatstone House car park. When substances other than waste water are flushed down the drain, this can cause problems. For example, fats and oils can solidify and cause odours and block drains.
The following items must not be disposed of down the sinks or toilets: waste food, paints and solvents, disposable nappies and wipes and sanitary products.
