The Importance of Drain Cleaning

If you keep finding yourself in the same place – with another clogged drain – it might be time to solve the problem for good and get your drain properly cleaned.

But what’s the point in cleaning my drains if they’re just going to get dirty again?

Clogged drains are a common problem for households, a joy that comes hand in hand with indoor plumbing. The more debris that accumulates in the drain over time, the more likely it is that the drain will eventually block completely.

What’s causing my drain to clog?

There are a number of materials and factors that are responsible for clogging up your drain, including a build-up of sludge and debris that accumulates over time. Sludge is usually comprised of a mixture of fats, oils, grease or soaps, dirt, silt, leaves, hair, food and other household waste that has been allowed to build up within your home’s drain lines.

Once an obstruction occurs and is not removed, it tends to grab onto other bits of debris, causing the blockage to worsen over time This can result in bad smells, a collapsed sewer pipe or flooding.

How we clean your drains

Drain jetting is the approach we use to clean drain and sewer pipes. The high-pressure pump can extend much further down a drain than a drain rod will, making it an extremely effective method which blasts at the obstruction, removing all of the materials and debris safely and without damage to the main line pipes.

In addition to this, we safely remove all of the unwanted stone, sludge and waste water, making sure to clean your drains to a standard that will deter future drainage problems.

What if it doesn’t unblock?

It is very unlikely that the drain jetting and clearance service we deliver will not unblock your drain. However, if there is something there that is causing a problem, we are able to carry out a CCTV inspection to allow us to visually inspect the cause.
