Drain Relining

Drain Relining Woking

When you find a crack in your pipe, then it can be very pricy and intrusive to correct. Damage to an underground drainage pipe can be a real pain to deal with for any homeowner.

The typical solution would previously have been to first dig up the section above the damaged pipe and then replace it with a brand new piece. When you have a broken sewer pipe or drainage pipe in Woking and don’t wish to have the disruption of someone digging up the whole road, then reach out to the professionals for a drain relining service instead.

Roots of nearby trees can also grow into the pipes and drains, which will end up causing them to fracture and start leaking. An example of how drain relining in Woking can benefit you is in the way it minimises any disruption and noise.

Our team has been dealing with drainage problems of all kinds for many years all over the Woking area. Have you recently detected a horrific odour in your house or garden? Do you think that you might have an obstructed drain pipe? Call us on 01483 256742 – we are here 24 hours a day!

Outside Drains

Outside Drains in Woking

24 Hour Emergency Services have found active and reactive prevention to be the best cure when it comes to keeping your outside drains in Woking free from blockages at all times. The issues with outdoor drains are normally associated with roots, leaves, branches and twigs entering and accumulating in the system to cause a blockage.

We recommend that you sweep up any garden debris that has accumulated in the yard as soon as you see it. You can either dispose of it or put it into a compost pile. Great care should always be taken in order to sweep out gutters as well.

Pitch Fibre Drains

Pitch Fibre Drains in Woking

Pitch fibre drains in Woking were used a lot throughout the 1960s and 1970s before being banned in the late 1980s. There are several concerning problems with these drains because they only offer a useful lifespan of 40 years and as such, they are beginning to fracture and fail.

Because they were not made using long-lasting clay-based materials and plastics – which simply weren’t as advanced as they are now – they were typically manufactured from wood pulp and bitumen. This made them far more affordable than their clay counterparts but their durability and overall strength was greatly compromised.

Once the weight of the ground on top of the pitch fibre drains in Woking becomes too much, they begin to bend. This will eventually result in an effect known as ovaling, which is called that because the pipes become oval-shaped and end up preventing the water from flowing through properly.

The leaky water will also attract nearby roots that can penetrate the walls of the drains causing them to leak more and become clogged up even more. When the coal tar inner layer comes away from the pipe, it leaves vulnerable areas that are no longer watertight.

Waste Drain Blockage

Waste Drain Blockage in Woking

Waste drain blockage is definitely not a pleasing thing for anyone to have to deal with. The first indication of this problem is usually a horrible smell that will likely not go away no matter what you try. It is also normally accompanied by standing water, which will drain too slowly if at all. Toilets may also become backed up and eventually overflow if the issue is not quickly addressed.

When a weakened or cracked pipe has been placed under a lot of pressure by a waste drain blockage in Woking, you may experience many additional problems including burst pipes. When you notice a bad smell that wasn’t there before or see that a bathroom sink is not draining away, please don’t wait until the water is overflowing. We are always here to help on 01483 256742.

What Causes a Blocked Drain?

What Can Cause A Blocked Drain in Woking?

There are numerous ways in which drainpipes become blocked up and begin to cause issues at Woking properties. Clogged drains may have been brought on by lots of different things and it’s usually a combination.

More often than not, it is caused by people flushing items that should never be flushed. This often includes many general household items and kids’ toys as well as the expected food waste and clumps of hair. Blockages can also occur due to people using far too much toilet paper or flushing sanitary towels despite warnings against doing this.

If your blocked drain in Woking is located outside instead, then roots, leaves, branches and twigs are normally the main reasons, as well as various forms of litter that has blown in from the street. When these undesirable items accumulate inside the drain, they will create an impassable obstruction that leads to the drain overflowing.

In private homes, kitchen sinks often become clogged. The cause here is most commonly food waste, oil and other grease that isn’t disposed of correctly. Regardless of the initial culprit, we will know how to proceed. Give the experts a call on 01483 256742 – we are here to help no matter where in Woking you are based!
