HOW DO THE DRAINS BECOME BLOCKED?
One of the most common causes of blockaged drains are items being flushed down the drains. Sometimes though, a blocked drain can indicate a more serious underlying problem such as a structural defect. Rest assured, though, all of our fully trained engineers carry the knowledge and tools to resolve your problem.
HOW DO WE KNOW IF OUR DRAINS ARE BLOCKED?
Usually the first sign of blocked drains is smells and another is the water level in your toilet appearing unusually high. If these signs are noticed and dealt with as soon as possible though, the underlying problem will be quicker and much cheaper to fix.
HOW DO WE PREVENT MORE BLOCKAGES?
Avoid flushing non-biodegradable products (wipes etc..) down the toilet, avoid washing food scraps and food product down the sink, and never wash cooking oils or fats down the drains. Also, if you live in an older property and have experienced several drainage problems, booking regular CCTV surveys to inspect the drains will give even better peace of mind.
SHOULD WE HAVE CCTV DRAIN SURVEY WHEN BUYING A HOUSE?
Obviously if the house is brand new then there is no reason to have a CCTV Drain Survey. However, if the house is older, it is always beneficial to gain as much information on anything you will be investing your money into, especially if it’s your potential home. A CCTV survey is a quick way of showing any potential drainage problem, as well as giving you and the seller an idea of how much it will cost to fix should something go wrong.
