Drain Unblocking & Cleaning Services

Blocked drains can cause all sorts of problems so if your drains are giving off a bad smell or even if the water is refusing to drain properly from your sink, bath or shower leading to overflows. If this sounds like you, it’s time you call a professional drain cleaning company. Our drain unblocking specialists clear all types of blockages, with professional equipment offering an unrivalled drain cleaning service. Your local engineer is on hand to get the job done quickly and efficiently.

Taking Care of Blocked Drains

Identifying the Cause 

Unblocking drains can be difficult when you can’t physically see the problem, which is why we provide CCTV inspections to safely search for the location of your blockage and assess if there is any damage to your drain. The CCTV inspection helps give us crucial information needed to provide the correct solution to your blocked drain.

There are a number of warning signs that you could require a drain unblocking which if left untreated, can lead to further costs. Blocked drain warning signs can include an unpleasant smell around the drain, gurgling noises or subsidence. Visible damage such as cracks, localised damp, raised water levels and sewage coming up through your drains are clearer signs that something is wrong with your drain pipes. If you have noticed any of these issues, it’s highly likely that you have a blocked drain and need a local drain unblocking company to come out and clear your pipes.

Why Is the Drain Blocked?

Blocked Drain Pipe? Call the Drain Clearance Experts

Unfortunately, a blocked drain won’t fix itself, and if left without a drain service, the problem will likely get worse.

Our teams offer knowledge and support in all things plumbing so should the blocked drain lead to or be part of a wider issue in your property, such as a blocked toilet or even damage to your showers, we can help you resolve these issues as well.

Paul P

The Drain Doctor operative, Dan Hayler was extremely good. He took time to explain the situation and did a fantastic job of solving our problem. He is knowledgeable and courteous. I would highly recommend him and this company. Thank you for an excellent service.

Mandy Stuttard

Seriously brilliant company. Anna was so helpful and great on the phone in the booking. Clear job pricing, rather than hourly charges. We have had two other plumbers out to solve this issue without success. They used a camera to find the blockage which was a ceramic piece from previous building work. Can't recommend them enough!

Kathy Pavid

Very pleased with Drain Doctor and operator Dan. Had concerns about partial sewer main blockage and possible sewer pipe misalignment. Camera survey carried out first to identify issues, then complete high pressure clean, then follow up camera survey. First class professional and friendly service - would most certainly use again.

Roy Tubbs

Great service from Anna and her team. Dan carried out the work needed and was polite, friendly and explained what needed to be done.

Tracey Ridgers

Dan turned up within an hour even though it wasn't an emergency. He was professional and very helpful and even identified a hidden chamber that was also blocked. Great quality for a very reasonable price.

Nick Armitage

Called this morning for plumbing emergency. Attended within half an hour and problem fixed. Would highly recommend.

Katie Crawford

Can't recommend Graham Forbes and Drain Doctor enough! 3 hours graft and skilled use of some pretty scary high pressure equipment, camera tech, to break a fiendishly located fat and soap berg in the corner of our kitchen pipe work.

Andy & Katy Travers

Really quick service, called on a Sunday morning, with us within an hour with the job done quickly. I hope not to need my drains sorted again, but if I do, I'll be calling Scott!
