You will know when your drains have become blocked. Not only will they produce an unpleasant aroma, but they will gurgle around the pipes and plugholes, and will drain slowly with no visible cause.
These are the types of symptoms that have most clients calling on their local drainage company to check their pipe system and flush away any blockages.
But today’s blog isn’t about solving the problem of blocked drains. It’s about minimising the risk of drains becoming blocked in the first place, with a comprehensive drain cleaning London service.
Here are three of the top benefits of regular drain cleaning, as conducted by a team of experts.
1. It helps to keep your pipes in good working order
Reliability is the one thing that we all want from our drainage system, whether it’s at home, at work, or in another public or commercial premises.
Ensuring a reliable drainage network which delivers water when we need it, and flushes waste effectively and efficiently, means caring for the pipes on a regular basis. Drain cleaning is something that focuses on the unseen bits of your drainage network but is an integral part of keeping everything flowing – from showers, toilets, kitchen sinks and the main under slab drainage!
2. It minimises the risk of debris build-ups and blockages
The process of drain cleaning involves innovative machinery and industry leading equipment, all of which is designed to flush through the entire system to ensure it is debris and blockage free.
The issue that drainage specialists find is that most severe blockages are caused by a build-up of debris. What this means is that a blocked drain is unlikely to be caused by a single object or substance blocking the pipe, but rather a build-up which has grown over time. Drain cleaning ensures that this doesn’t happen, by regularly flushing through the pipes and dislodging any debris which may be starting to cause a build-up.
Crucially, the regularity of drain cleaning is what ensures that any trapped debris never becomes overpowering enough to block the drain – rather, it gets removed and flushed away before it can cause any severe damage.
3. It keeps costs down!
There is no escaping the fact that an efficient drain cleaning service, booked and completed regularly, costs less than an extensive drain unblocking and potential repair work as a result. Drain cleaning is a relatively quick service depending on the scale of your drainage system and when your last cleaning was, with most companies charging a competitive hourly rate.
Comparing the cost of a regular drain cleaning and maintenance service with the costs associated with extensive drain unblocking and repair work, the former comes out as the far more affordable option. And it’s not just cost that you need to consider, with a regular cleaning service far more convenient than the plethora of issues that can be caused overnight by a severe block in your pipes.
