Speedy Jet Drainage have been in the business of drain unblocking in London for a number of years now. Based in London we serve the whole of the M25 area and further for drain cleaning, unblocking and other drain services.
The process of resolving a blocked drain issue can be a mucky business. After all, the contents which get stuck can be quite unpleasant to remove. We usually start off with a CCTV survey so we can assess what needs to be done. After this, we get down to the nitty-gritty and the actual process of removing the blockage.
Common causes of blocked drains in London can include garden waste and leaves. This is the most frequent problem just after Summer when we start to move into Autumn. As we all know the leaves on trees turn a lovely golden brown and start to fall, and yes it is a lovely time of year as the nights draw in and more hot chocolate is bought. But for drains, this can be a problem.
The build up of these fallen leaves can block pipes leading to drains overflowing.
Unblock Drains London
When we unblock drains in London, we encounter many different types of drainage problems. Another common cause of clogged drains is grease, fat and other foreign materials getting into household drains. When you’re cooking bacon and need to get rid of some fat, it’s so easy just to pour it down the sink. It’s a liquid isn’t it? But when the fat cools down it solidifies. Much in the same way, eating fatty foods can clog your arteries, pouring fat down the sink can clog your drain.
The last most common cause is actually from yourself. It’s hair. On average people lose 100 hairs a day, and if these hairs are working their way into your drains you could soon find yourself with a problem. Many plugs usually do have some form of device to catch hair and prevent it from entering your plumbing. But extra care is needed as you can easily prevent your drain from ever blocking this way.
