Local Drain Unblocking Services

Whether you’re in Poole or not, you should always contact your local drain unblockers if you notice early signs of severe drainage problems. Early signs of a blocked drain include:

  • – Slow draining sink, bath or shower
  • – Bad smell coming from drains
  • – High water level in the toilet

You may be able to unblock drains at home yourself using natural, safe remedies such as caustic soda but avoid chemical drain unblockers at all costs. 

Chemical drain unblockers may live up to their claims of dissolving hair and grease, but they can also damage your pipework This leads to a much bigger (and more expensive) problem later down the road.

If natural drain remedies aren’t working, a local drain cleaner will come to your rescue. As the company you use should already have all of the necessary equipment, often it works out being far more cost effective than trying to deal with the drain blockage on your own.

Your local drain unblocking company will provide services such as jetting and rodding to deal with everyday blockages. If your issue is more severe, a CCTV drain survey will allow the expert to identify and locate the problem. Following the inspection, your local drain company will recommend the best solution.

In most cases, excavation won’t be required. Pitch fibre pipe repairs can be done from above ground, without having to dig up your garden or car park to reach your pipes. This kind of service is usually offered to repair cracked pipes which could be causing your blocked drain.

How Much Does it Cost to Unlock a Drain?

Depending on who your local drain unblockers are, the problem causing the issue and the service required the cost will inevitably vary. If you’re working with a small budget and need an emergency repair, Maintain Drains will recommend a drain unblocking service and provide a quote with no initial upfront costs.

Shall I Call my Local Drain Unblockers for Outside Drains?

If your outside drain is overflowing, you should get in touch with your local drainage expert immediately. There are two reasons we wouldn’t recommend trying to fix the issue yourself.

Firstly, your drainage system connects to the public sewers which are your local council’s responsibility. If the cause of the blockage is outside of your line of responsibility, then you won’t have to pay the bill. Therefore, getting your local drain unblockers out to fix the problem could end up saving you money.

Secondly, your drainage system was installed when your house was built. While the interior pipework is easy to access, the outside systems will be deep underground. Your local drain unblockers will have access to equipment designed to deal with deep, underground systems and get the issue solved quickly.

When to Call a Drain Company

Finally, when should you pick up the phone and call your local drain unblockers? If you have already noticed some of the early signs of a blocked drain, such as slow draining or bad smells, then now would be a good time to call.

Remember, your local drainage company could save you time and money. They’ll also prevent the problem from happening again and again.

If your drains are blocked and you’re in Poole or the surrounding Dorset area, Maintain Drains will come to you to investigate the issue and recommend the best solution. Don’t let the problem persist. Get your local drainage company on the job today!
