Sewer Cleaning & Maintenance Services
Blockages in sewage pipes can be caused by a range of events. Heavy rain and river floods can overwhelm sewers and cause sewage to back up into homes and businesses. As well as producing a very unpleasant smell, sewage contains harmful bacteria and gases that can cause serious illness and even death. It can also damage buildings, the environment and the local water supply, so it’s essential a blocked sewer is dealt with quickly before any serious harm is done.
A professional blocked sewer service
At Drain Doctor, our experienced engineers identify and diagnose the problem before providing the most cost-effective sewer service. Whatever the cause of the issue, we have the expertise and specialist equipment to resolve it quickly and professionally while minimising the risks. Our sewer-cleaning techniques include:
- High-powered jetting – Our high-pressure water jets can remove blockages from your sewers in minutes. They deliver a powerful water jet to remove obstructions and debris without doing any damage to the sewer walls.
- Root removal – Root intrusion is one of the leading causes of blocked and damaged sewers. As part of our sewer service, we use a rotary mechanical cleaning device to remove tree roots and other obstructions that cannot otherwise be moved.
- CCTV drain survey – We use specialist CCTV equipment to inspect the sewer and diagnose the cause of the blockage quickly. We then remove the blockage in the most cost-effective way and use CCTV to check that all other obstacles have been cleared.
Is it your responsibility to clear a blocked sewer?
As a home or business owner, you are responsible for maintaining or repairing any drains or sewers inside the boundaries of your property, unless they are shared with a neighbour.
Sewers are usually located outside property boundaries, in which case it’s the water company’s responsibility to maintain them. However, there are also some privately-owned sewers, as well as cesspools, septic tanks and treatment plants, that the homeowner is responsible for maintaining.

Mr Bryan Watson
I would really recommend the Worcestershire Drain Doctors. I found a blocked drain by accident, and rang late on a Saturday to see if someone could pop out later in the week. Mike was great and it was organised that Dave would come out to me Sunday with no extra charge. They assess the issue then quote, and Dave was able to sort out the issue quickly and professionally. Great service and blown away that there was a very kind and unexpected NHS discount at that time. I would certainly use the service again, and would happily have paid full price. Well done and thank you for making this super easy!
These guys are amazing! Called on a Sunday about a blocked toilet drain that we thought had cracked and was leaking raw sewage into a cavity in the house. Rachel went through the pricing with me for a pressure clean and CCTV of the drain to check whether it needed repaired. She assured me that Kieran would be out the next day and we would go from there with what needed to be done. As promised, Kieran came out early afternoon, unblocked the drain and checked for cracks which thankfully, there were none. He was extremely knowledgeable and allayed my fears that structural damage had been caused and told us what the next steps were. From start to finish both Rachel and Kieran were polite and personable and the service they provided was both professional and good value. I would not hesitate to recommend the Drain Doctor to anyone.
Helpful from start to finish. I couldn't believe how quickly someone was on site. My tenant was delighted.
