Why Do You Need a Local Drain Expert?

'Blocked drains' can be a nightmare, whether at your home or office, and can actually cause damage to your health. While the smell of sewage isn’t pleasant, drains are also a breeding ground of disease-carrying organisms and bacteria. Blocked drains can also lead to flooding, which is a potential threat to lives and property.

Unfortunately, drains can easily malfunction. To protect against this, drains must be installed correctly, with strict attention paid to proper procedures to ensure health and safety. If you are experiencing slow drainage, sewage odours or flooding, a drains specialist can help.

What Do Drainage Cleaning and Repair Specialists Near You Do?

A drain repair specialist is largely reactive. While they may be able to diagnose a problem without seeing it, it’s only when they begin to do the work that they can appreciate the full extent of the issue. Drain repair specialists not only fix blockages, but also fix issues with incorrect pipe gradient and backfill, pipe lining wear, and poor drainage design. Their duties include:

  • Cleaning and maintenance of drains: Drainage specialists are experts in the removal of dirt and other blockages. They can do a CCTV survey to find out what’s going wrong, and efficiently fix it using techniques like jetting (high-pressure water) and rodding (specialist metal tools). If there are cracks in the drain lining, they have a range of techniques with which to fix this problem.
  • Cleaning of gutters: Blocked gutters and downpipes can lead to flooding on the streets. Drain unblocking specialists clean up the gutters to prevent this from occurring.
