Get in touch with Drainsmart: a top choice for a Bromley drainage company.
If you’re suffering from drainage issues in the form of blockages, cracks or similar there are several methods of drain repair that are available for you.
Generally, drainage issues are diagnosed by a CCTV Drain Survey, which is where a small camera is used to inspect inside of a drainage system and record the information and provide details of the damage caused to the pipework.
If possible an insitu drain repair such as a structural soft felt lining or structural patch lining is chosen as they are the most economical, and stress-free solutions. However, sometimes there may be cause to excavate the drainage pipes due to the level of deterioration caused over time, because of this we recommend and offer a CCTV Drain Survey in Bromley which will allow us to assess the drains and allow us to preempt any further damage.
WHAT CAUSES BLOCKED DRAINS?
Prevention is better than cure, so always be careful of what you pour down your drains.
Blocked drains are mostly caused by people flushing liquids or items which do not break down in their sinks or toilets. Common materials and substances include fat and grease, wet wipes and cigarettes.
When you pour fat or grease down your drain, they will solidify inside of the pipes and slowly grows in thickness each time fat or grease poured down the pipes – this will cause damage to the inside of the pipework and cause a blockage which will require a specialist to remove.
To resolve this issue, we highly recommend you wait for the fat or grease to dry before disposing of it in the dust bin.
Wet wipes and cigarettes are especially known for causing blocked drains, although wet wipes may say they are “flushable” we still recommend that you dispose of these by putting them in the bin.
HOW TO DEAL WITH BLOCKED DRAINS
If you are already struggling with blocked drains, we highly recommend that you do not follow “unblocking your drains DIY guides” that you can find on the internet. These guides usually contain quick remedies such as using baking soda or similar and can actually cause more long term damage to your drainage system and requiring a full excavation.

Comments from Drainsmart customers
Below are some of the reviews we have had from Drainsmart customers.
“We have never had drains work done before so choosing this company was a bit of a lottery. We had three quotes and Drainsmart fell right in the middle, however, their assessment was more thorough than the others, and their breakdown of costs more detailed so we chose them. We couldn't fault them. What they quoted was exactly what they charged and they even threw in a new manhole cover, which was not part of the job, for free. They stuck to their schedule, the work was thoroughly professional and finished to a very high standard. Two men were with us for three days and were unfailingly polite and cheerful and left the place spotless. We were dreading having this work done, as it involved digging out some of our cellar and was a messy job, but we hardly noticed they were there!
Maybe we were just lucky, but if our experience is anything to go by we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company.”
