When doing normal tasks, blocked drains can pose a number of challenges. Whether your drain is overflowing, your sink is stopped, your shower won’t drain, or your drain is emitting an unpleasant odour, we can help.

How to identify the cause of a blocked drain?

Sometimes there are clear indications of a blocked drain, such as an unpleasant odour or gurgling sounds coming from the drain. Additional signs of damage could include fractures, sewage backing up via the drains, or elevated water levels. All of these can indicate blocked drains.

If none of these symptoms apply to you but you feel your drain is clogged, it may be prudent to conduct a CCTV survey to identify the cause of the obstruction or the extent of the damage. Our staff in Hackney provide this service to assist in determining the probable reason, so if you think you might have a drainage issue, please give us a call.

Why is my drain blocked?

A blocked drain can be caused by a variety of factors, but by understanding what causes them, we can not only clear the obstruction and avoid it in the future. The following are a few typical reasons of drainage issues:

  • Accumulating rubbish from homes
  • Broken or damaged pipes
  • Foreign substances
  • Root blockages in trees

Whichever of the aforementioned factors led to a clogged drain in your Hackney house, our crew has the knowledge and experience to fix it—even if it’s an unusual issue!

How can I unblock my drain?

Calling a local specialist is the simplest way to unclog a drain; while it can seem like a good idea to try it yourself, doing so won’t guarantee an effective fix. Our staff is on call around-the-clock for emergencies and uses cutting-edge tools to unclog your drains. We do ask that you don’t ignore a blocked drain if you do have one.
