Guildford Drain Excavation Experts

When it comes to drainage networks, there are many different elements that contribute to the entire system working correctly. For residential homes and commercial properties, there are simple fixes that will keep your network intact. However, if there is an extensive problem and you have exhausted all options, an excavation may be required.

Here at No1 PHD, we boast a team of experienced and certified technicians that offer a wide array of services, from descaling and fat removal to high-pressure water jetting. We can take on all projects regardless of their size, including a full scale drain excavation. We operate in Guildford and surrounding areas, so don’t hesitate to get in touch to find out more information. You can reach us by calling 01425 208031.

Why is a Drain Excavation Needed?

Most drainage problems can be solved without needing to affect the premises, but in some cases, an excavation is necessary. This is because severe damage has been caused, generally by ground movements, root ingress or flooding. When contacting our professionals at No1 PHD, we will consider all options, with excavation being a last resort.

There is no getting around the fact that an excavation will cause disruption as a trench or hole needs to be dug in order to conduct the task. However, our experts will work swiftly to help minimise the level of disruption to your day-to-day routine. Keep in mind that we will only resort to this service if the following occurs:

  • A repair is not enough to solve the problem
  • Pipe or drain has collapsed
  • Numerous leaks
  • Pipe or drain is old or has cracks

What is the Process?

Before we put a shovel in the ground, we will carry out a CCTV survey to discover the extent of the damage and the location of the issue. The drain camera will take real-time images of the pipe and drain, giving our technicians the precise location and problem to tackle. We will then find the best points of entry and begin the riffing process.

Depending on the project, our technicians will either manually dig the trench or use an excavator to expose the pipes we need to work on. As the pipe will be significantly damaged, it is likely that we will have to remove them and replace them. Once this has been completed, we will refill the trench in a way that matches the premises in order to avoid subsidence.

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.
