24 Hour Drainage Services Lancashire

Here at No Dig Drainage Solutions, we are a local Lancashire drainage company. We provide our services nationwide across the whole of the UK and are in a prime location for residents and businesses in Lancashire. Our services include all aspects of drain repair, maintenance, installation and more.  Whatever you require, whether it’s drain surveys, drain repair or drain unblocking, Lancashire customers can trust us to get the job done to professional standards.

CCTV Drainage Surveys in Lancashire

We combine our knowledge and expertise with using the latest technologies and techniques that allow us to repair and maintain both domestic and commercial drains. We help to keep them at peak performance whilst avoiding unnecessary trench digging and disruption to your premise’s grounds or other structures. We do this by using the latest developments in CCTV technology during our drain surveys. This enables us to evaluate and diagnose any problems you have with your drains, by inserting a small camera and viewing the live footage on our monitors. Only then can we determine exactly what condition your drains are in, and the cause of any problems you may be experiencing.

Repairs and Pipe Sealing Services in Lancashire

We have numerous ways to carry out leak detection in Lancashire.  Using CCTV or an electro scanner, as well as our many years of experience in supporting the local, commercial and domestic drainage systems, we can find the source of a leak. We are then able to find a solution to the problem to prevent further damage and drainage failures down the line and over time. Repairs and pipe sealing for Lancashire customers include patch repairs and patch lining.  This involves lining being inserted directly onto the interior drain wall and then fixed into place, using curing techniques, without the need for exposing the pipes and digging them up.

Drain Cleaning in Lancashire

When it comes to drain cleaning, Lancashire customers can rely on us to carry out a thorough and effective job. Drain cleaning is necessary to remove any blockages that prevent your drainage system from performing properly. We can get your drains working at full capacity once again with drain jetting that employs high-pressure strong enough even to cut through any tree roots that may have infiltrated your drains. We can eradicate any obstructions and blockages that may cause a backup in your drains.

Clogged drain

Main Causes of Blocked Drains

Here at No Dig Drainage Solutions, we offer drainage contractors and consultants to carry out a range of services regarding drainage systems, including providing blocked drain solutions. Today we are going to focus on what causes blocked drains, to help you also see what you can do to prevent problems, and how we can help when the issue is beyond your control.

Grease and Fat

One of the top causes of blocked drains is grease and fat, despite the fact that it is easily preventable. It has become such a big problem, that you may notice the fleet of vehicles of drainage companies warning of this. In order to prevent clogging up your drainage system this way, make sure to dispose of cooking oils and any other kinds of grease and fat in the waste rather than down your sink. You can do this by reusing oil or disposing of it in your rubbish, and wiping away any excess with a kitchen towel. As water and oil are immiscible, they don’t mix, meaning that oil molecules will stick together and then attach to the insides of pipes, so that gradually this build-up will prevent water from passing through.

Hair 

Whilst sinks are often fit with plug holes that are protected from larger objects entering the system, hairs have the ability to slip through. The build-up of hair can cause blockages – if you imagine a hairball or when you haven’t cleared out your hairbrush, you can imagine the havoc it can cause in a drainage system. Although you can buy products to prevent this, you can also check for the accumulation of hair in and around your plugholes, and clean it out straight away when washing your hair.

Toiletry Products

Although toilet paper is designed to be flushed down toilets, it’s important to not use excessive amounts, or you risk blockages – both visible and not. When they stick together, they can become more likely to be attached to the drainpipes, leading to an obstruction within the system. Additionally, items that are not designed to go down the drain, such as baby wipes, nappies, sanitary towels and tampons can all cause big blockages.

Unexpected Items

Leading on from toiletry products, sometimes accidents happen and unexpected items can be found to be the cause of serious drainage issues. Particularly pay attention to children, who are common culprits for toys being flushed down the toilet. However, adults also need to keep an eye on their mobile phones when flushing, as it’s fairly typical that people take their phones in toilets and accidents can happen.

Trees and Leaves

If you have a garden, you can watch out for any build-up of leaves near drains, but trees can also cause problems beyond your control. Tree roots can work their way into drainage systems as they grow underground, drawn to the nearest source of water, causing pipes to crack and causing blockages. For this, we can carry out CCTV surveys to determine the cause of any drainage problem to find a suitable solution.
