We use drainage systems every day, whether they be in our bathroom, kitchen, or otherwise. Critical utilities such as toilets, sinks, and baths, rely on the smooth operation of these systems so that they can function without issues. However, problems can arise due to the frequency with which these home features are used. It is recommended that you have regular maintenance on you pipes so that materials that could cause blockages are flushed out.
There are a number of reasons why drains can become blocked, most of them involving an excess build-up of materials. Some of the most common items that cause drain blockages that will need unblocking include:
There are also key signs to look out for to identify a blocked drain. If you have noticed an unpleasant odour coming from your utensils, or resting water inside them, it is likely that you have a blocked drain. To avoid further build up and a potentially burst pipe, it is vital that you have your drain cleared by professionals immediately. Until then, your usual every day facilities will underperform significantly, or not at all.
We at No1 PHD understand the severe disruption that comes with a blocked drain, so we aim to get out to all customers as soon as possible. Our team have a range of useful equipment that enables them to identify the source of a blockage quickly. For example, we utilise state-of-the-art fibre optic cameras that travel down drainpipes and are able to withstand water damage. These cameras enable us to find the root of the problem quickly and decide what work needs to be carried out.
Our team use tools such as water jets and drain rods to deal with the blockage in your drainpipe. Water jets shoot a powerful stream of water down your pipe to push through tougher build-ups. Drain rods, on the other hand, are fed into pipes to move debris and clear blockages. Both of these methods are highly effective, and our team are fully trained.
In some instances, the inside of your drainpipe will have been damaged by whatever materials have caused the blockage. If this is the case, our team can carry out comprehensive drain relining services. This process involves us reinforcing your existing pipes without having to tear up floorboards and cause further inconvenience. Drain relining is a cost-effective, time-saving, and environmentally friendly solution to fixing your damaged pipes.
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.
