Basingstoke Descaling & Fat Removal Services

No household can run smoothly without a fully functioning drainage system. Whether you’re using the toilet, shower, or sink, you rely on drainpipes woven throughout your home to carry away waste. As they are such an essential feature, it is vital that drains are maintained regularly by homeowners. Without doing so, fat, scale, and other substances can build up inside your pipes and cause severely disruptive blockages.

At No1 PHD, our team have been working on all aspects of drainage for many years. We are confident in being able to competently carry out everything from repairs on blocked toilets to full drainpipe relining. Call our team in Basingstoke today if you’re in need of descaling and fat removal services.

Why You Need to Clean Your Drains

In every home in Basingstoke, drainage systems are pivotal for removing waste from your property swiftly and responsibly. The functioning of your drains is vital to the continued use of essential household utilities, including toilets, sinks, and showers. As they are so frequently used, drainpipes are prone to issues such as burst pipes and blockages. The latter is commonly caused by a build-up in excess materials that predominantly include:

  • Toilet role
  • Hygiene Products
  • Soap
  • Food Waste
  • Other Foreign Objects

The clogging of these materials is the partial responsibility of fat, grease, and other sticky substances catching them in the inner-lining of your pipes. What’s more, scale can also infest the inside of your drainpipes and severely affect their performance. If a proliferation of these substances does result in a drain blockage, you’ll likely notice the issue through an unpleasant smell or resting water in your utilities.

To deal with such an issue, or prevent one from happening in the first place, it is essential to carry out regular cleaning on your drainpipes. It is especially vital to hire a specialist team that has the knowledge, training, and equipment necessary to deal with fat and scale correctly. The sooner you deal with a blockage, the less you’ll have to pay for cleaning and repairs.

Upon arriving at your site, our team will first carry out an inspection of your system to determine how much cleaning work needs to be done. We take advantage of specialised, fibre optic cleaning cameras that show us what parts of your piping need to be serviced. This inspection technique is time-saving and non-destructive, so you won’t have to wait long for us to begin work on your pipes.


Once we’ve identified the areas of your piping that need special attention, we will get to work on cleaning them. We utilise specialised drain rods that are fed into your pipes and help scrape away scale and fat that has gotten stuck to the inside. Our team also make use of high-pressure water jets that blast a powerful stream of water into your pipe and push through fat and scale that has built up. These methods are quick, cheap, and effective, and will return your pipes to optimal performance.

Think your drainpipes could benefit from fat removal and descaling services? Then reach out to our team at No1 PHD in Basingstoke today. We’re always willing to discuss our work in detail, so don’t hesitate to call on 01425 208031 or email if you’d like to know more.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.

For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
