If you, like so many homeowners, overlook the importance of ongoing and regular drain maintenance, then you will likely find yourself one day seeking the services of drainage and drain unblocking organizations like London Drainage Facilities.
Operating our drain unblocking London services to the city and beyond, more often than not we are called out to properties, homes, and buildings where drains have become blocked over time – with the lack of maintenance allowing a build-up of everything from oil and grease and wipes and other items which shouldn’t be found there in the first place. Not to mention, with London’s waterways and systems under high demand every minute of every day, the chance of blockages is always high.
But enough about how your drains may become blocked – this blog is all about knowing what to expect from the drain unblocking process.
When to call in the experts
If you’re guilty of sticking a plunger down a blocked toilet and then forgetting about it, then you’re not alone. While this presents a quick fix for a temporary blockage, it does little for the ongoing maintenance of your drains – and could be perceived as sticking a plaster over a bigger problem.
If you are finding that your sinks and toilet are consistently becoming backed up and clogged, or you can smell an unpleasant odor around your drains, these are signs that your drains are blocked and need some attention.
The unblocking process
Our team uses professional-grade pressure washers and electro-mechanical coring machines to complete a deep dive into the water system and flush out any debris or materials creating a blockage.
Using a CCTV drain inspection as the first port of call to identify and isolate the cause of the issue, we then use a combination of high-tech and powerful equipment to remove the problem and allow the drains to operate to a high standard once again. With equipment and dedicated teams who are used to working both within residential areas and commercial buildings, and with pipe set-ups that allow us to access even the most remote locations and blocked drains, our 24-hour service is here to help when you need it.
As part of the service, we also offer advice and guidance on how best to maintain your drains once we’ve got rid of existing blockages – including regular inspections from a member of our team to ensure that your water system is running smoothly. These surveyor visits are completely free and form part of a cohesive service to keep London’s drains in full, functional order.
In addition, we regularly update our blog with tips on how to maintain your drains and with advice on what to look for if you are concerned that your drains are blocked.
