Blocked Drains

Blockages can be caused by a build up of fats, oils, grease or soaps, dirt, silt, leaves or foreign objects, or structural defects like roots, corrosion or subsidence. And whatever the cause, the consequences can be serious: bad smells, a collapsed sewer pipe or a toilet overflowing. The solution may involve removing an obstruction, drain cleaning or even repairing a structural defect.
