Drain and sewer clearance

Drain and sewage clearance

A drain or sewer block can be a huge inconvenience, and unfortunately from time to time, hair, grease and solids can cause a blockage. Professional drain cleaners can remove a blockage whilst also stopping a future occurrence.

There are many ways to tackle a drain or sewer blockage, such as chemical drain cleaners and air burst drain cleaners.

There are also devices that can be used in the event of a large blockage that can remove obstructions throughout the drain’s entire length. These are known as sewer jets or electric drain cleaners.

Drain blockage removal is effective and will eliminate any problem quickly with no inconvenience.

What type of drain cleaning service will I need?

  • Handheld drain augers

Handheld augers can unblock obstructions up to eight metres from the drain’s opening. They use a long cable which is driven by rotating the drum. The cables are often thin enough to squeeze past sink traps. However, they’re discouraged from use on toilets as the ceramic could scratch.

  • Air burst drain cleaners

Air burst cleaners use accelerated gas to disintegrate the blockage. Carbon dioxide is frequently used, but normal air and other gases are viable too. Air burst cleaners work best when the blockage is close to the drain entrance and they have a better range than plungers.

  • Electric drain cleaners

These types of drain cleaner are essentially longer versions of the handheld auger. It can clear blockages up to 40 metres from entry point as the cable twists up through the piping. Electric drain cleaners should only be operated by skilled professionals as they require a great physical effort to control and can be expensive to buy.

  • Sewer jetters

High pressurised water is used in this instance to clear pipes and drains. They not only remove the initial blockage but also help to prevent future occurrences. Sewer jetters can be used to remove blockages throughout the pipework’s entire length. Experts are needed in this case as you must be fully trained to operate the machine.

  • Enzymatic drain cleaners

Enzymatic cleaners use bacteria to react with sewer residue and clear slow moving drains. They’re often used as a form of maintenance rather than unblocking obstructions.
