What Are Drain Unblocking Services And Do I Need Them?

When your pipes and drains become clogged up with debris, grease, food waste or other foreign materials, it can hinder the efficiency of your entire plumbing system, and it can even become unhygienic, with a build up of rotting mass in the system.

When you begin to notice a blockage, you need an expert plumber to thoroughly unclog and clean your pipes before the blockage worsens and becomes difficult to remove.

What Might Be Blocking Your Drain:

Depending on whether it is your system, gullies, sink or other drains that are blocked, there are a few common culprits when it comes to causing a blockage:

  • Fatbergs
  • Rubble
  • Wet wipes (even flushable ones!)
  • Food waste
  • Sanitary products

And plenty more. In fact, any foreign object that is not designed to be flushed away through these pipes will prove problematic and put your pipes and plumbing system at risk.

Signs That You Might Have A Blockage

Blockages are difficult to notice since they tend to be hidden within pipes and therefore out of sight. However, there are a few ways in which you can tell if you might have a blocked sink, drain or toilet:

If you’re still unsure whether you need a new boiler or not, here are a few key signs that your boiler may need replacing:

  • Water drains away slowly or not at all
  • Unpleasant smells
  • Unusual or new sounds coming from the appliance when draining
  • Raised water levels within the toilet
  • Damp

Once you get in touch with our drain unblocking specialists, they ill attend your property, identify the blockage and use state of the art technology to remove it, without damaging your pipes further. We work quickly and professionally to restore your pipes to their most efficient, clear and effective state.

Blockage Plumbing FAQs

What kind of stuff can block a drain, sink or toilet?

There are a few common culprits when it comes down to blockages. Often people have tried to flush away fat, oil, food, wet wipes, sanitary items or other foreign items that cannot be carried through pipes like human waste and water can.

Do your services cover outdoor drains too?

Absolutely. Even blockages that occur outside of our home can cause problems within our home, which means they are just as important to address and resolve.

Our specialist plumbers are capable of unclogging indoor and outdoor blockages thanks to our great technology and extensive expertise.

Who is responsible for the drains outside of my house?

It may not be immediately clear who is responsible for dealing with any blockages that are affecting you, particularly if they are outside your home. If you get in touch with our team, they will be happy to provide information on who is responsible for blocked drains depending on where they are.

Can you find the blockage in a non-invasive way?

Definitely. We use start of the art CCTV technology to help us quickly and efficiently find and target any blockages, even in the most challenging of spots. This means that we do not have to disturb the drainage system and we can avoid causing damage to your pipes.

How can I prevent a blocked drain?

There are two main ways to avoid a blocked drain. Firstly, you need to ensure you and your family are not flushing away foreign objects, or objects that cannot be carried through the pipes.

For example, we recommend never pouring fat down the sink, since it solidifies when it cools down and can create an unflushable mass.

Secondly, you need to keep up to date with your plumbing maintenance checks, since appointments allow our team to identify potential problems and build-up using CCTV surveys.

How long does it take to unblock a drain?

The time taken to unblock a drain depends entirely on how severe the blockage is, and how long it has been left.

Once we have assessed the severity of the blockage, we will be able to give you a rough estimate for how long the service will take. However, we aim to take around an hour for most blockages.

Do you unblock sinks and toilets too?

Yes. Our expert team specialise in blockages of all kinds, including those in the toilet and sink.

Is the service messy?

No, we will never leave your home or garden in a mess. We carry out all of our services with a high standard of care and skill, and any mess we make will be minimal and cleared up before we finish the job.
