Blocked drains can often be caused by a build up of fats, grease, or food and waste debris in key pipe or drainage areas. More serious problems such as root damage or subsidence can result in longer term problems.
These issues, if treated in time, can often be resolved quickly and reduce the cost of repairing more serious damage later on.
Lea Valley Drainage Services will provide a fast response and speedy solution to the problem. We have a range of methods to diagnose and clear different types of blockage with well trained and friendly experts on call, 24 hours a day. We do not charge for call outs and offer a fixed price service.
A bad smell coming from a sink hole or slow drainage are usually clear indicators that there may be a problem with water flow. More serious blockages can cause a back up of water or materials and cause problems elsewhere within the drainage system. You may experience bad smells coming from a manhole or gully area.
In more extreme cases, where long term problems are left untreated, pipes can become damaged or broken and build ups of water or leaks can be observed around piping locations or drainage areas.
Though it depends on the nature and size of the problem, we are usually able to unblock most drains within 30-45 minutes. However, if the blockage will take longer to fix, we will let you know in advance.
CCTV Drain Surveys are usually used to survey more serious problems or recurring issues. CCTV drain surveying systems offer a fast and cost effective way to reveal problems that would otherwise lie hidden for years.
CCTV drain monitoring equipment is also used to conduct pre-purchase homebuyer reports for customers who are considering purchasing a home or property.
Drain lining and patch repairs are methods of drain repair, used to avoid uneccessary ground work or excavation. This is an excellent way to fix internal pipe problems because it reinforces the broken drainpipe with a durable lining that allows freeflow of water.
We usually recommend this method when it is difficult to get to the repair area, or when ground work would be ineffective.
Our business operates on a fixed price policy. We do not charge for call outs and all prices are agreed in advance, before any work is undertaken.
