April 2021 has been a rather unusual month. Not only are we one year on from the first lockdown in the UK as part of the COVID-19 pandemic but the weather has also been unusually chilly. Whereas by this point in Spring we are usually seeing mini heatwaves and some sunnier weather, this year we have had snow and much lower temperatures than normal.
Whatever the weather, Drainsmart has been here to provide drain repairs in London and the surrounding areas to any customer that needs them. We have operated during the recent lockdowns and will continue to provide drainage services, as we are deemed an essential service. This is no less true when the weather gets worse as the last thing homeowners will want is a problem with their drains.
One of the most common problems we see during colder spells in the UK are cracked or broken pipes due to the freezing temperatures which can exacerbate pre-existing cracks and breaks. A solution to preventing this kind of issue is a CCTV drain survey, which allows our engineers to inspect your drains using cameras, looking for any potential breaks, gaps or other issues before they get any worse. Our CCTV Drain Surveys in London start from just £175 + VAT and can be a terrific investment should you have an underlying drainage issue that may get worse in the bad weather.
During hotter months, there is a drainage issue which no household wants to content with: infestations. Locating and eradicating these within your drains can be essential to avoiding potential health risks to the inhabitants. This is something a CCTV drain survey would also pick up as our engineers are experienced and trained to look for infestations.
No matter the weather, another common drainage issue customers are keen to avoid or solve is blockages. A build-up of materials and substances in your pipes can lead to blockages meaning the waste from your property is not able to flow away properly. When this happens you can see leaks within the property or foul-smelling odours coming from your drains. It is important you get your drains repaired as soon as possible to ensure no hazard is posed to the people living within the property.
