Blocked drains


Blocked drains are most often the result of the natural processes of the formation of solid or viscous plaque on the inner surfaces of the pipes. The reason for the narrowing of the opening of the pipeline is the remains of soap, grease, hair and food particles. The drain can be clogged with debris or a foreign object (rag, bag, hygiene products). Another common cause of blockage is mistakes made in the design and installation of the drains. The incorrect slope of the pipes, their small diameter, a large number of turns and bends – all this provokes constant problems with the drain system.

Specialists of the blocked drains London company provide services for clearing blocked pipes of private and multi-story buildings, cottages, townhouses, shopping and entertainment complexes, restaurants, cafes, offices and other buildings. Drainage companies use the following means to clear a blocked pipe:

  • Teleinspection equipment necessary for detecting blockages, determining the type of blockage and choosing the best method for blocked drain repair;
  • Electromechanical cleaning machines (their working tool is a flexible cable) – drain blockages are destroyed by tips of different shapes, and then washed off with water;
  • Manual mechanical devices;
  • Hydrodynamic machines equipped with nozzles that remove debris with a pressurized stream of water;
  • Thermal drain cleaners – the inner surface of a blocked pipe is cleaned and disinfected with hot water and steam (the method is not suitable for plastic).

If cleaning by hydrodynamic and mechanical methods is not possible, then chemical preparations are used. Alkalis cope well with grease and soap plugs; acids corrode organic blockages. When choosing a reagent, the specialist of drainage services London takes into account not only the type of blockage but also the material of the pipes – if you ignore the aggressive effect of chemicals on plastic and metal surfaces, then additional problems with drains will arise.

The formation of a blockage in the drain pipe is an inevitable process that cannot be prevented, but unpleasant consequences can be avoided. To do this, it is enough to carry out preventive cleaning with a certain frequency. The break between them depends on the conditions in which the pipeline is operated. Most drainage companies London provide unblocking services around the clock.

Drain blockages often occur at the most inopportune moment due to improper equipment operation and lack of maintenance. Sometimes, the cause of frequent pipe blockages is an improperly installed sewer system, but in most cases, a blockage occurs after many years of using the sewer network without the necessary routine maintenance or cleaning. A blockage is an appearance in pipes of plaque, deposits and foreign objects, which partially or completely prevent the passage of liquid household waste through the pipe network. While the pipeline is new, its walls are perfectly clean, but every year the plaque and fatty deposits become larger and in three to four years the working diameter of the sewer pipe decreases several times.
