Swift and Effective Drain Maintenance

Clogged drains can easily be caused by hair and grease build-up, as well as non-degradable items such as wet wipes. Our drain cleaning specialists aim to reach your property as quickly as possible to identify the source of the blockage.

Often, we may find that the issue is located in a public or shared pipe system, whereupon the responsibility falls to your local water authority. However, any blockages within your property boundary are yours to rectify.

Using drain rods, we clear out any obstructions before cleaning the drainage pipe with a pressure washer. With our cutting-edge drain CCTV surveys, we then run a camera down the length of the drain to make sure no blockages remain.

For more complex jobs, we will insert the CCTV camera first in order to identify the issue. Many blocked drains in the Southampton, Guildford, Slough and Poole areas are affected by tree roots, which grow in size until the entire pipe is obstructed.

Using an auger to drill away any tough roots, we then apply a sealant or resin-impregnated lining to make sure the drain is protected from future structural compromises. These drain maintenance solutions will fix your pipes without any need for excavation.

Causes of Blocked Drains

Drains become blocked for many reasons. Foreign objects, grease, vegetation and poor maintenance can all lead to blockages and subsequent issues like foul smells, unusable drains and health risks.

Both domestic and commercial drains are at risk of blockage if the proper care is not taken to prevent build-ups, pipe damage and other blockage-related problems.

Foreign Objects

  • Sanitary Items

  • Wet Wipes

  • Nappies

No-Dig Technology

At Easy Drains, we use various no-dig methods of drain unblocking and repairs. Such methods minimise disruption, mess and stress, and allow us to resolve drainage issues as quickly as possible.

No-dig technology allows us to identify the cause and location of blockages without digging up drains, removing floorboards or using other intrusive tactics. In most cases, we can also clear the blockage or repair the drain without accessing the problem area directly.

Risks of Blocked Drains

As well as being annoying and disruptive, a blocked drain can present health risks. Consequently, we strongly advise customers in Guildford, Poole, Slough, Southampton and the surrounding areas to contact us for drain unblocking as soon as a problem occurs.

Risks include:

  • Overflowing sewage, which can contaminate your property/environment with harmful viruses, bacteria and parasites

  • Stagnant water, which is a breeding ground for bacteria and can lead to waterborne health problems

The following are some health risks known to result from contamination due to blocked drains:
