CCTV Drain Surveys
A cost-effective method of identifying issues with your drainage system. Sometimes the cause of a drainage problem isn’t always obvious and CCTV drainage surveys are a cost-effective method of identifying the issue before it becomes more serious, such as collapsed pipes and root ingress. There may be other issues such as blockages or pitch fibre pipes. A CCTV Drain Inspection could be the perfect solution for you! If you’re looking for a drain inspection in Poole or Bournemouth, request a booking to see how we can help you.
Following CCTV drainage surveys of your drains, we provide a full written report of what we’ve found, listing problems and their location or simply giving you a clean bill of health. All our CCTV drainage surveys reports include photos of the damage, video footage, and a plan showing the location of the drains. CCTV drain surveys are one of the most cost-effective methods to identify drainage problems.
Rats in Drains
Rats in drains are commonly caused by damaged and cracked pipes or pipes that have been left open. Once the rats find entry into your drains, they have an entry into the property. This could be why you’re finding rats in the loft and walls. It is important to repair your drains as soon as you notice any signs of rats in drains.
Relining allows us to repair damaged drains and pipes without having to dig. When the inside of your drains has been compromised – usually identified through a CCTV survey – you will need professional drainage services. Two common ways of fixing more challenging damage inside your pipes underground are to have either drain relining or have replacement drains put in place.
One major benefit of drain relining is that it can work out cheaper than pipe excavation. Additionally, this is the quickest way to get them fixed. You only need to wait for the new lining to be sealed to the pipes and the holes and damage will be gone. There is also no destructive work to be carried out with relining; once the new material is in place you’ll never know the work was carried out.
We have a variety of techniques to sort out root ingress. Tree roots in drains are one of the biggest causes of blockages in the UK. At Maintain Drains, we have a variety of techniques that we can try out for roots in pipe removal and depending on the location and severity of the root ingress. In many cases, roots can simply be cut away if there has been major displacement to the joints or severe fracturing then excavation may be the only answer. Once the removal of the roots is complete the following process would be to use a structural liner to reduce the likelihood of the roots getting into the drain in the future.
How often should I clean my Commercial Drains?
There’s no denying that prevention is better than cure when it comes to commercial plumbing. There is also no denying that it can be easy for drain cleaning upkeep to fall into peripheral vision. After all, it’s not something you tend to think about on a daily basis, or ever – until it becomes a matter of urgency and something you can no longer neglect.
You can’t wait too long between drain cleaning, and it’s unrealistic to perform commercial plumbing tasks too often. Sometimes, it can be impossible to avoid plumbing disasters. Particularly in situations such as incorrect installation of pipes, or natural deterioration over time. However, a regular cleaning schedule can certainly aid the problem.
There are steps you can take to clean and care for your drain pipes, such as having a monthly cleaning schedule, but sometimes having a professional inspection annually on your drains can be an asset and save much stress later down the road.
An experienced professional will be able to provide an in-depth review of your drain performance and identify any potential issues far more accurately. This will help make sure you (we) can tend to any plumbing issues before they develop into more serious problems.
How to take care of your Commercial Drains
Particularly in cases of commercial properties, heavy use of the drains is a given, and with that comes an increase in the risk of having drainage problems if they are not regularly maintained.
- There are a handful of things you can do to ensure your drains are cleared of material buildup:Flush out any loose debris and material using hot water, regular water flushes can benefit drain pipes better than you may think!
- Following on from the point above, chemical based cleaners shouldn’t be used too regularly as this in itself can cause problems. Instead, try a home-made mixture of baking soda and vinegar to help break down any materials that have gathered within your drain.
- Moving forward, drain cover or grates are a good way of preventing any large debris from entering sink drains and fixtures.
