I had been renovating a flat but unfortunately had an issue with a drain blockage. I was in need of fairly urgent... assistance. Alvin was on time, polite and sorted out the problem in a quick and efficient manner. He had all the kit that was required to help clear the drains - with his camera (and some dye I put down the toilet) I could see the drains working again and the problem was resolved. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this excellent (and fairly priced) service.read more

Drainage Maintenance in London, Kent, and the South East
The main causes of drain / pipe obstructions or blockages are caused by miss-use and lack of maintenance. Miss-use, for example grease and fat disposal through a drainage system, can be prevented at source and the condition of a drainage system can be monitored and maintained by regular service visits and cleaning.
The use of ‘wipe’ material in its many forms is also now becoming a routine problem for us to remove. For example, it is produced in wipe form for such items as baby, make-up, sanitary, cleaning and toilet training. Despite what the manufacturers may claim these items are not designed to disintegrate and they will not flow through a drainage system. This causes obstructions and more often mass lumps.
Routine cleaning and inspection prevents the build-up of grease, wipes, scale / sewage, silt and debris and allows us to ensure that a drainage system is working efficiently. An efficient system is no cause for concern, a drainage system that is left forgotten about can deteriorate and will only be noticeable once a problem has occurred, which will usually cause inconvenience, possible damage and can affect trade if in a working environment. Consideration should be given to the fact that the cost of regular maintenance far outweighs the results of a problem when you are least expecting it, which let’s face it is at any time.
We carry out maintenance contracts ranging from servicing entire below ground drainage systems for industrial or retail parks to urinal bowls in office accommodation or domestic properties. Each of our contracts is individually assessed for the requirements and to suit each site, based on load, installation design and likelihood of misuse.
For below ground drainage we commonly attend every six months although some properties can be left to annual visits. Our tasks include below ground drainage, internal stacks, roof and box gutters, surface water gullies and petrol interceptors, urinal bowls, basins, grease traps, anti-flood valves and bin room disinfecting / cleaning.
In the case of restaurants, food outlets or car parks we can arrange for attendances out of hours or at weekends.
