Drain Unblocking & Cleaning
It’s a sad fact of life that pipes and drains in homes and businesses can become blocked. Usually, a blocked drain is no fault of your own, although in some cases, items disposed of in toilets and sinks, such as fats, grease and wipes, can cause a blockage. Alternatively, it may be a tree root or damaged pipe that’s causing the problem. Whatever the cause of your blocked drains, our expert team is on hand to help.
Taking care of blocked drains
Whether it’s toilet water rising dangerously high, a blocked sink, bad smells or an overflowing gully, a blocked drain can lead to all sorts of issues. At Drain Doctor, we are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide a professional, cost-effective solution. We can help you with:
- Blocked drains

As drain unblocking specialists, our skilled engineers use advanced clearing equipment to remove blockages efficiently. The result is a quick, cost-effective solution to any drainage problem.
The latest drain unblocking equipment
Modern drain unblocking techniques are a million miles away from the DIY solutions that homeowners and business owners might have tried in the past. We have a range of powerful solutions at our disposal that provide a long-lasting solution. That includes:
- Rotary mechanical drain cleaning – This specialist equipment uses a motorised tool to rotate a cable that descales corroded drains and removes tree roots and other obstructions. Any remaining material can then be flushed away harmlessly into the drainage system.
- High-pressure water jetting – If the obstructions are more mobile, high-pressure water jetting can soften and emulsify the blockage or remove it entirely. This technique also provides effective drain cleaning so your drains can flow freely once again.
- CCTV drain surveys – We use the latest CCTV technology to uncover the source and extent of a drainage problem and identify the most appropriate solution. Our CCTV drain surveys can also check that all blockages have been successfully removed.
How we work
We offer both pre-booked appointments and emergency callouts around the clock, so whatever your problem, our technicians will be on hand to provide a cost-effective solution. We will arrive at your home or workplace in one of our branded vans which contain all the tools and equipment we need to quickly diagnose and solve any issues upon first visit.
We also carry out functional tests on the drain to check that the blockage has been completely removed. If we identify a structural issue that’s causing the blockage, we will conduct a CCTV survey of the drain to uncover the extent of the damage and provide a proposal for the most appropriate fix.

Amazingly accommodating, professional and successful
I have to say that I had a major 'toilet' emergency today and to be honest to me it was the end of the world. I'm no plumber and to me I was in a hopeless situation. Well that was until Dr Jon from Drain Doctor arrived! It turned out to be a big job, but with Jon's clear knowledge and experience I knew I was in safe hands. All I can say is Jon turned my toilet nightmare into a happy ending. Professional, knowledgable, witty and fast. Would highly recommend Drain Dr Oxford to one and all.

Your technician Jamie was extraordinarily good. I would like to use myself and your company for further use. I would like to praise Jamie for the outstanding work that he did. I was most impressed with the service I was provided by Jamie and Drain Doctor...Well done Jamie..keep up the good work.

Just had a visit from Alex, what a thoroughly lovely young man. polite, and very personable . He gave me a no nonsense simple explanation of the problem and how much it was going to be. He then got on with it cleared up after himself and it was all sorted. Wouldn't hesitate to use them again if I needed something done in a hurry. thank you Alex. 10/10
I was charged over a hundred pounds to plunge the bath, they did not not clear the blockage in the pipes which was the job required. Then recommended over three pounds further for a longer term fix which I said no to. I got a different drain company/plumber in and he said they had not cleared any of the pipes and he cleared them at a fraction of the cost.
I just thought I would let you know just how pleased we were with your service. Martin Cotton, Phil and Brian were a real credit to your company. They all worked really hard and were cheerful and optimistic over finding the leak, which was not at all obvious. It was a very difficult job but they were all very professional, and I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation. A credit to your company.
I write to say the recent problem I had with the blocked drains was dealt with by your firm “Drain Doctor”, was of the highest professionalism, from Anne in the office who took my call, to Chris our own ‘Doctor’, who worked very hard, a very pleasant young man a credit to your company. I shall recommend you to anyone I know who has a drain problem.
