Local Drain Cleaning Services

When dirty or blocked drains are causing a problem you need a fast, reliable and professional drain clearing solution. With branches right across England, a No 1 PHD team of drainage experts is only a short distance away and ready to respond rapidly to any cry for help for emergency drain unblocking and all general drain clearance.

Regular Cleaning is Vital

Household and commercial drainage systems are usually low maintenance but when things start to go wrong they go wrong fast and you’ll be glad a local drainage company is on hand to fix your issues. No matter how careful you are with what goes down the kitchen sink or the bath plughole, there is always an inevitable amount of unwanted, undesirable and unpleasant material that will slip through. These materials will stick to the walls of drains and over time these deposits will grow and grow until eventually the drains become blocked and the water backs up and overflows. Some of the biggest culprits are everyday items that we might consider as relatively harmless including:

  • Soap
  • Hair
  • Cooking oil and fat
  • Food particles such as breadcrumbs

These items and other small bits and pieces will eventually bond together to create an obstruction which will, in turn, trap bigger items such as toilet paper and other foreign objects. Regular drain cleaning will stop this from happening as it will prevent any build-up of matter from forming.

Preventive Measures

When it comes to drains and sewers it’s pretty much a case of “out of sight, out of mind” but this is a false sense of security. Thinking nothing will go wrong doesn’t mean it can’t or won’t as many people have discovered to their cost. The drains carry away dirty water, sewage and other waste but if they become blocked due to poor maintenance then trouble will inevitably follow. Raw sewage and stagnant water will have no place to go but back to where it came from. The result is a blocked drainage system, toilets that cannot be flushed or are overflowing and sewage-laden water in the back garden or (worse) on the front lawn. Using the No 1 PHD professional drain cleaning service will prevent these problems from occurring and provide you with peace of mind. Being a national company we can arrive quickly to unblock drains, clear pipe blockages and unclog any other issues.

Professional Approach

It may be tempting to try and clean drains yourself but a domestic plunger and a few lengths of wire simply won’t do the job properly. You can count on No1PHD, the local drain unblockers to be on call 24/7 to assist you. Drain cleaning is time-consuming and must be done correctly or it’s a waste of time. The No 1 PHD team are experienced in the use of heavy duty and complex machinery that are necessary to properly clean the full width and length of the pipes and drains. These include:

  • Drain cameras which we use at the beginning of every cleaning assignment to determine precisely where problems are situated and evaluate the best method of remedying the situation.
  • An extensive and varied range of augers and plungers.
  • Specialist outside drain unblocker equipment
  • Manual Drain Snakes which feed a plastic drum into the drain. The drum is rotated by hand to clear the pipe as it pushes through.
  • Electric Drain Snakes are more powerful and used to clean wider drains.
  • Sectional Drain Cleaning Machines used for heavy cleaning work including sewers and down pipes.
  • Water Jetters are powerful hoses that clean away any built-up accumulations of hard to shift materials such as soap and grease.

Drain snakes, drain cleaning machines and water jetters are designed specifically for cleaning and maintaining pipes and drains and should only be used by qualified plumbers and technicians. Incorrect use can result in damaged pipes, cracks and leaks which is why our drain cleaning crews are fully trained in their proper use.


Problem Solved!

Drains are unlikely to go wrong overnight. It is a slow process that begins with the smallest build-up of dirt, grease, food particles and other matter. Regularly scheduled CCTV drain inspections using our state-of-the-art drain cameras will prevent future blockages and possible pipe damage. Even if there are no visible signs of drain damage or problems it is still wise to have them checked on a regular basis with our professional drain service.

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.
