Fast and Efficient Blocked Drain Service
Drain blockages can build up over time and can cause drainage flow to slow or stop altogether. There are a number of reasons this can occur such as a build-up of silt, scale, dirt, grime and debris in your drainage system as well as common culprits such as hair, soap and fat that often get mixed up in the drains.
If this builds up enough, it can prevent water from flowing through, resulting in slow or no drainage. This can obviously be extremely disruptive to your home or business, as well as result in worrying gurgling noises and unpleasant smells.
That is why we provide fast and efficient service for blocked drains in Hertfordshire, to minimise disruption and allow you to get back to normal.

Drain Jetting For Blocked Drains
We use the latest technology and equipment to flush through your drainage system to remove any blockages. We often use drain jetting as an efficient way to remove the build-up that has occurred, it works by using a high pressure hose to shoot water through the system and break up any blockages that have occurred, so they can easily flow through the system.
Our drain jetting can navigate bends in pipes and reach up to 100m, so we can reach hard to reach places and effectively manage any issues that have occurred. It is an efficient way of removing stubborn blockages and is environmentally friendly as it does not need the use of harsh chemicals.
CCTV Surveys To Identify The Cause Of Blocked Drains
If it unclear or necessary to identify the cause of a blocked drain, you may wish to consider a CCTV survey. This involves putting a camera down the drain, navigating bends to find the route of the problem. This allows us to identify the cause of the problem, be it a build-up of scale and silt deposits, a foreign object or a damaged or collapsed drain.
When we do a CCTV Survey, we will provide the video footage to you on a DVD or SD card and provide an accompanying full written report and site plan. The report will include photos of the exact defect and an estimate for the costs of the repair required. This is ideal for providing information and evidence to insurance providers.

What causes blocked drains?
Any number of things can cause blocked drains, such as a build-up of silt and scale over time, a foreign object that has been flushed down the system or some kind of damage to a part of the drains. Common preventable causes of drain blockages can be hair, soap and cooking fat.
As you can imagine, soap deposits and hair can quickly build up in a bath or shower drain, but there is something you can do. There are special attachments for bathroom plugholes which will collect this hair and soap, so it can easily be removed and avoid clogging the drainage system.
When disposing of cooking fat, do not pour it down the drain, as this can harden once cool and block your drains. Instead, allow it to cool and scrape into a container that can be thrown away.
How can I prevent drain blockages occurring?
As well as taking measures to prevent common drain blocking culprits from building up in your system, regular drain cleaning can ensure drain blockages never have the opportunity to become disruptive by breaking down any deposits that are building up before they can become a problem.
We can offer drain cleaning on a one off basis or on a regular basis as part of our drain maintenance service, which provides you with regular drain cleaning as well as unlimited free call-outs for any issues that occur – giving you peace of mind that your drainage budget is taken care of for the year.
