Blocked drains in the home are a common problem and ultimately they can lead to nasty smells around the house and disruption to everyday life. Typical causes of domestic blocked drains include:
· Build-up of substance in drain e.g. general waste
· Tree root intrusion
· Rubble from building waste which is common in new builds
At Jet Aire, we have gained knowledge and experience over the years that enable us to identify and clean the blocked drain quickly and effectively and with minimal disruption to the customer. In fact we are proud to say that we clear 95% of blocked drains within the first hour.
1. Locate the drainage blockage
Drainage systems can be blocked for a number of reasons and each problem will need specific corrective action. Therefore, it is important to determine where the blockage is and what caused the blocked drain.
2. Clear the blocked drain
Once we know what the problem is we will perform the most suitable drainage solution. In most domestic situations the problem can be removed by using a high pressure water jetter.
However in some circumstances when the blockage is caused by plant or tree roots that have cracked the drain, Jet Aire will need to cut away the intruding root and clear the drain by using cutting techniques. Once removed, we will then carry out any drain repair work needed to restore the damaged area.
