Our Drainsmart engineers visit many properties in London and the surrounding areas, often to fix some serious drainage issues. From blocked drains to leakages, fractured pipes to backed-up toilets, we have pretty much seen it all, and one common trait for many homeowners is to delay a problem when they see it - which leads to a bigger issue down the line.
We all do it, put off that seemingly inconsequential problem in the home, hoping that it won’t get any worse, or even better - it somehow fixes itself! This happens quite a lot with drains, as they are hidden and homeowners don’t have the required tools, knowhow, or even visibility in order to properly diagnose and fix a drainage problem.
Also, sometimes a blocked drain does just clear itself which is fantastic!
How can a CCTV drain survey in London help me?
A CCTV drain survey uses cameras to inspect your drains, looking for any unusual feature, such as fractured pipes or breakages, as well as blockages. By finding a problem sooner, we may be able to take a less extensive course of action, such as drain lining (also known as drain sleeving) in order to get your drains fully functioning again.
How does this help you?
Well, should you leave a potential issue within your drainage system, time and use are likely to make it worse, and could lead to something more serious than a cracked pipe.
One of the most unwelcome outcomes of a drainage issue that we see is when sewage is leaking into the property. Not only will this be a big job to correct (and clean up), it poses a serious health risk to anyone living in the property and could lead to additional costs such as temporary living accommodation needing to be sought whilst the issue is dealt with.
Given that our CCTV drain surveys in London start from just £175 + VAT, many homeowners should see this as a no-brainer when it comes to investing in your property and the health of those who live within it.
Not all drainage issues come with such severe outcomes, however, drains are such a vital part of your daily life that it seems unusual that we often don’t place the same value on them until it’s too late. Much like if your car was playing up or if your electricity was acting strange, if you notice anything odd about your drains, toilets etc, then get in touch with Drainsmart.
We are happy to help, we have dealt with all manner of drainage issues and emergency drainage needs, and prioritise customer service alongside affordable and great value drainage services in London and the surrounding areas.
