Drainage problems can happen almost anywhere where there’s a drain that isn’t serviced and cleaned as frequently as it should be and after a drainage company has had a chance to look at the drain, the problem is usually fixed instantly. However, some cases of blocked drains have turned out to be much more serious than just some dirt caught up in the pipes.
Let’s say that if the drains in your area have never caused any problems in the past and then all of them just get blocked out of nowhere one fine day, something fishy is going on and needs to be checked out. A high pressure jet and heavy duty machining can clear out all kinds of blockages but if all the drains in your area just stop working, you may not even be dealing with a blockage anymore.
Sometimes drains collapse and this can happen at any part of the entire drainage system, rendering all the drain mouths in an area thoroughly in effective. In these cases, it might even be necessary to dig up the drainage in the area and replace old pipes with newer ones but before such a huge and inconvenient procedure can be carried out, it’s a good idea to thoroughly investigate the matter just to be sure.
Many of the best drainage companies out there offer drain survey services in which they investigate causes of blocked drains and file reports based on the findings before they propose a solution. With eh current drain survey technologies, companies are able to send in crawler units into drains so that they can investigate the exact cause of the drain’s failure and see how they can fix it without causing too much of an inconvenience to those living in the area.
