You know that repellent smell characteristic of blocked drains in Sunderland? Even after this smell persists, people are often reluctant to call on the services of professionals to investigate the problem. This is because they are often unsure whether it is worth it. However, the problem only gets worse over time. Not only does it have a detrimental effect on both their health and well-being but it can also cause long-lasting damage to their property. Once you report your concerns to us here at Kwikflow, we are on hand to reassure you, and if necessary to provide an efficient and fast solution to drain clearing in the Sunderland area.

Drainage Unblocking In Sunderland

To avoid paying for drainage unblocking unnecessarily, look out for the following symptoms:

  • Bad Smell: The first symptom is that of a bad smell coming from the drains. This is caused by material caught in the pipe which emits the unpleasant odour as it rots.
  • Slow Drainage & Strange Noises: Another sign of drain blockage is when the water takes a long time to drain away. This is often accompanied by gurgling noises as the draining water tries to find its way past an obstruction.
  • Toilet Water Levels Rising: Finally, you should be on the lookout for signs of the water level in the toilet going up when you first flush the chain. The water from the cistern is unable to drain away as fast as it should because it is being slowed down by a blockage.

Blocked Sewer Sunderland

Drains and sewers are both part of the interconnected system to ensure the safe disposal of dirty water and accompanying waste products. For the efficient removal of this unwanted waste, every fixture or appliance which uses water has its own individual drain. Every time you flush the toilet or wash clothes in the washing machine, for example, the used water goes down the drain and flows into the sewer. This underground network takes away the dirty water from one or more buildings – whether they are domestic households, businesses or commercial properties. Because water is used by all the properties, the sewer must be able to cope with a massive influx of water, sometimes at exactly the same time.

Although unblocking an individual drain is a challenge in itself, freeing a blocked sewer presents a whole new level of difficulty. As a sewer may serve the needs of several buildings (or even an entire street), none of the properties will remain unaffected while the sewer is being unblocked. Water use may be restricted or businesses might have to close temporarily while work is being carried out. Because of the severity of the problem, it is important that you do not put off calling us if you suspect your sewer is blocked in Sunderland. The longer you leave it, the worse the consequences can be. You even run the risk of massive damage which could have been prevented.

Call In Our Professional Drain Clearance Team

Although drain and sewer clearance in Sunderland presents a challenge, our team of specialists have years of experience under their belt. This allows them to find a fast and effective solution without any major hassles to you. The course of action they opt for will depend on factors such as the kind of pipe affected and the nature of the blockage. Special chemicals are utilised to dissolve fat and grease which has built up in the pipe while solvents are chosen to shift foreign bodies stuck in the pipe so they can be easily removed. If our specialists judge the blockage to be severe, they have tools like high-powered pressure washers to blast the pipe open.

Even when the job has been successfully completed, our work is not done. In order to prevent a repeat occurrence, our team is eager to share their knowledge. Once they have pinpointed the cause of the problem, they can give you tips to avoid a drain or sewer blockage ever happening again. This will save you money and time in the long-run. We have found that owners of commercial properties are particularly interested in taking advantage of this extra service as they can pass on the tips to their employees. We also offer a specialist commercial drain unblocking service tailored especially for business owners.

Our team of professionals is on hand to answer any queries you might have – whatever the problem and whatever type of property is affected. They will be able to provide a short-term solution until they visit the property, investigate the nature of the problem and decide on the most appropriate tool or method to utilise. In the event of an emergency, we also offer an emergency drain unblocking service. However, the best thing is not to allow the problem to reach this stage as blockages can only get worse. Just imagine the hassle if the water starts to back up, and inundates your property with dirty water and waste matter. To prevent this happening, you must take the matter into your own hands and contact us the moment you notice a drainage problem. We will take care of the rest.
