“Very grateful thanks to the team from Drain Doctor Nottingham that came to unblock the drain at our house last night. We really didn’t know what to do, but they sorted the problem out and cleared the mess up too.”

Mr T. – Ilkeston

A blocked drain is usually the kind of drainage problem that creeps up on a property. Warning signs that something is afoot are common but are often ignored, in fact many people are unaware of the signs to look out for.

Mr T, a resident in the Ilkeston area recently contacted Drain Doctor Nottingham Plumbing and Drainage when he discovered that a drain at the rear of his property was overflowing, with sewage flooding part of the garden.

Drain Doctor Nottingham service professionals arrived at the property on an emergency plumbing call and set to work quickly to establish the cause of the blockage.

CCTV images from a remote control drain camera revealed that a build-up of fats, oil and grease from the kitchen waste pipes had created a solid mass which eventually caused enough of an obstruction to the drain network to prevent waste running away to the sewers.

The blockage was broken down using high-pressure water jets and CCTV cameras were used again to inspect the pipes for any sign of damage.

Happily, there was no damage evident, so the Drain Doctor Nottingham team cleared the mess of foul water from the garden.

Before leaving the property, the Ilkeston resident was given advice on the types of warning sign to look out for in the future to guard against further blocked drains:
• Gurgling noises
• Offensive smells
• Pooling of water around plug holes and drain openings

If any combination of these signs is noticed, or any one sign is noticed frequently, then the best advice is to contact a reputable drain company such as Drain Doctor Nottingham Plumbing and Drainage.
