Portsmouth Commercial Descaling & Fat Removal Services

Scale and fat are the most insidious of blocked drain causes, building up slowly over time. Keeping on top of that build up essential to keeping your Portsmouth business’ drains running smooth. Call No1PHD today for fat removal and descaling on 01425 208031

Few businesses would be completely unaffected by a significant build-up of fats or scale in their drains. And for some businesses, such as hotels and restaurants, it could be devastating to the day to day running of the business. That’s why No1PHD have a team of plumbing and drainage experts in Portsmouth ready and waiting to deal with your drainage problems. Whether you’re looking for a routine maintenance descaling or an emergent blockage that’s backing all your drains up, No1PHD are here for your organisation.

What is Fat and Scale?

Let’s start with the easy one. Fat blockages in drains are caused by a build-up of fats and oils that have found their way into the drainage system. Even with a team of the most conscientious staff using your plumbing, it’s bound to happen in any building where food is prepared. Once the fat has gotten a hold on your drains, the rate of build-up can increase significantly as it is easier for fat to stick to other fat. The scale is a different situation altogether. Also called limescale or calcium deposits, the scale is a mineral deposit that is left behind by the water. Hard water will typically be worse for leaving scale behind, so factor the type of water your building is supplied with when deciding on a maintenance schedule. No1PHD can help you determine an appropriate schedule and maintenance frequency.

How is Descaling and Fat Removal Done?

There are a number of methods at No1PHD’s disposal for this kind of task. From drain jetting—using a high powered water jet to break up blockages—to drain milling—using a specialist drill to clear the drains and clear the inner walls of any stuck on deposits. The right type of tool for the job will largely be dictated by the situation and things like the condition and location of the drain. Your No1PHD professional will assess the situation before recommending a course of action. We aim to provide the best descaling and fat removal service combined with the least disruption, whether you are a school, hospital, or private business.

What are the Signs of Fat and Scale Build-Up?

When fat and scale build up in your drains, they effectively reduce the internal space in your drains. This, in turn, reduces the amount of water that can flow through the pipes. For this reason, the first sign you’re likely to see of excessive fat and scale build-up is slower draining from your sinks and showers and other drainage points. Slow draining from one spot—such a single sink—can often pinpoint the problem to just that drain. However slow draining over a large area points to problems deeper in your drainage system. If a problem like this is left alone it will almost certainly develop into a full blockage, which can result in water damage to your property. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Call No1PHD today and have one of our professionals look at your pipes before it develops into a serious problem.

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.
