Clogged, malfunctioned and blocked drains can cause serious health issues, from smell and skin irritation, to attracting rats and other vermin to the area. Also, if left unchecked, a blocked drain can cause property damage, including damp and even subsidence (where leaking drains cause the ground to become soft and sink which can cause cracks and damage to the building) which can be very expensive to repair compared to fixing the actual problem with the drains.
As well as causing damage to your property or place of work, a damaged drain pipe can cause costly damage to buildings in the surrounding area, both in urban and suburban areas, including flooding and sewage spilling over.
One of the first signs of drainage issues are blocked toilets as they are the main connection to the sewer outside so if you spot the water level rising, or any strange smells from toilets then it is a good idea to contact us to find out what the problem is.
Argo Drains specialises in drain unblocking both commercially and domestically throughout West Bromwich and the West Midlands, including:
We are specially equipped to deal with a variety of different drains in the area which can be crucial when working within West Bromwich.
We can use CCTV surveys to navigate through your drain with either a robotic crawler camera, or a push CCTV drainage camera, to identify the causes of damage to the drain without having to dig an expensive trench – this can be minor issues from blockages and scale build up through to leaks, displaced joints and even cracked and collapsed drains.
We can also use hand rods and high-pressure water jetting systems to clean blocked drains. This can help to make your drainage system more efficient, as well as preventing leaks and protecting the condition of your drainage system so it lasts for years to come.
If you are looking to purchase property in the area i.e. perhaps you are looking to expand your business premises or perhaps you are a commercial property developer, or maybe you intend to move into the West Bromwich area then a drain survey can be very useful to identify any potential drainage issues before you purchase the property so you can arrange with the existing owner whether they will fix these issues before you complete on the purchase and the problem becomes yours to look at.
This is especially true as properties in West Bromwich had an overall average price of £164,376 in 2019, according to Rightmove, which is 9% up on the previous year so it is very important for any prospective homeowners get the drains checked before adding any more costs onto the sale.
We have all been in an emergency situation where the drain is blocked and waste cannot be flushed away and it is important to get drains unblocked and waste flowing freely again before serious damage to your drains or property occur.
