It’s easy for people to not worry about their drains until there is a blockage or the drains stop working properly. Then, when the sinks are backing up or the yard starts to smell like sewage, people tend to panic. While many people will call the first company in the phone book or even reach for an at-home drain cleaner to try to fix the problem themselves, it’s important that you only work with a reputable company who will stand by their work.
Repairs and Emergencies
Any blocked drain, toilet, or sink can cause a backup and problems in your home. It’s important that the drainage company you hire has experience cleaning out drains and pipes without causing damage. If a drain isn’t cleaned out completely, it is common for customers to experience another backup soon afterwards. Common causes of blockage include grease and food bits in the kitchen sink as well as hair or personal products in the bathroom sink and shower drain.
If you have a crushed or cracked pipe in your yard, you will be able to quickly tell due to the resulting odour and the water in the yard. Most homeowners don’t have the tools or education necessary to dig up their backyard and try to repair a problem pipe. Working with a company who has the necessary tools on each truck will ensure that your repair will be taken care of on the first visit. In addition, great drainage companies have the equipment required to see into drains without creating a huge mess in your yard by digging it all up.
Inspections and Surveys
Drainage companies like 3 Flow Drainage don’t just help with emergency situations. Before building or installing a new drainage system, it’s important that you have a survey completed. A CCTV survey is especially useful, as it can be used to diagnose specific problems. Rather than digging up a whole drainage system, this survey can determine where the problem is and what it involves, investigate drains that are deep underground, and even be used to help with excavation. Your job site won’t be as large or as messy when you include a CCTV survey in your inspection.
Working with a drainage company that has the education and experience necessary to complete the work quickly and efficiently will allow you to rest easy that there will be no future problems with your pipes and drains. Asking friends and family members for recommendations is a great way to find a company to use, as is looking online for reviews. Always ask any company you want to work with about their insurance and license to work and make sure that they have experience in the type of job that you need done.
