Drainage

We Unblock All Drains

Our local engineers are available 24 hours every day to unblock all kinds of drains. Our 24-hour emergency drainage service is fully insured. All your plumbing and drainage systems must be maintained regularly if they are to work efficiently.

If you suspect your drainage system is operating inefficiently, or if you’re worried about the smell of damp or mould in your home, it could be time to call Intercity Gas on 01182142243 to investigate the matter further and give you the most appropriate advice as to what your next steps should be.

There are a multitude of things that can cause your drains to get clogged. Drain debris includes things such as hair, soap scum, greases, and even coffee grounds. There are also reports that in some cases tree roots are clogging drains due to cracks in the pipes within a plumbing system that allow tree roots to grow inside.

Most drain grates are also unable to filter out small debris. The grate’s openings themselves can easily get clogged with moss and a build up of stray leaves causing further issues.

Preventing Drains From Getting Clogged

Repairing a significant problem created by clogs when it’s gotten very bad can be a lot more expensive and time consuming which is why we recommend routine maintenance of your drains. With regular checks and maintenance performed on your drains, you can ensure you’re not going to be hit with any expensive repairs.

Regular cleaning and inspection will ensure debris is cleared away before it causes you any problems. It can also extend the lifespan of your drainage system and the relevant parts and accessories that go with it. Parts such as the pipes themselves, catch basins, drain grates, etc, are prone to permanent staining from constant exposure to dirt and grime but with regular cleaning and maintenance, this is something that can be avoided, and your drainage system will always look pristine.

It’s always best to have a regular clean performed to also reduce any lingering odours. Over time, debris or mould stuck in your drainage accessories can produce a foul odour. This can also be caused by trapped sewer water clogging the drainage system.

Our Drainage and Maintenance Service includes:

  • Blocked drains
  • Drain jetting
  • Blocked toilets
  • CCTV surveying
  • Gutter cleaning
  • Internal and external drains
  • Toilets, shower, bath & sink draining slowly
  • Foul smell / odour coming from drains
  • Overflowing drains
  • Fast response time

While drain blockages do give you early warning signs but it’s better to have frequent checks and maintenance to help offset problems further down the line that may be harder to resolve and costlier.

It’s also worth keeping these potential issues in mind when planning a drainage system for buildings. A well-planned drainage system can have its longevity and efficiency increased through regular maintenance performed to a high standard, with more access points to pipes and drainage accessories and parts.
