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.

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.
