Blocked drains can present a variety of difficulties when doing routine tasks. We can assist you if your drain is leaking, your sink is clogged, your shower won’t drain, or your drain is giving off an unpleasant odour.

How to identify the cause of a blocked drain?

When a drain is blocked, there may be obvious signs, such as a bad odour or gurgling sounds emanating from the drain. Fractures, sewage backing up via the drains, or high water levels may also be indicators of deterioration. These might all be signs of clogged drains.

It may be wise to do a CCTV assessment to determine the origin of the obstruction or the degree of the damage if none of these signs apply to you but you still suspect your drain is stuck. If you believe you may have a drainage issue, please contact our Chigwell staff so we can help you identify the most likely cause.
