Neglecting to conduct drain maintenance on your property can lead to extremely costly repairs across your building. Structural damage and health hazards can all be caused by damaged drains. Whether the property is your home or business, you need your drainage system to be repaired as quickly as possible.
Drains themselves are all made from hard-wearing materials. They will provide many years of reliable service, even when dealing with unpleasant, hazardous materials. Allowing damaged pipes to continue working can lead to flooding, water-logging and damage to your property’s foundations. It is important that you call in the professionals before these problems become serious and require costly structural repairs.
What Can Cause Damage to Your Drains?
There are all kinds of problems which can cause damage to your drains. Despite their hard-wearing nature, drains can suffer extensive damage over the years. This is particularly true if they are forced to deal with unsuitable materials.
One of the most effective ways of avoiding drain repair services is to practice the best in drainage care. Most damage to drains are caused by misuse. Blockages are a major issue and the cause of most drainage problems. In addition to blockages, damage can be caused by subsidence and intrusion into the pipes.
The most common causes of blockages are:
- The Flushing of Unsuitable Materials.
- Disposing of Food Waste and FOGs down the Drain.
- Soap Scum and Hair.
The most common causes of subsidence damage can include:
- Nearby Groundworks.
- Water-Logged Soil.
- Nearby Construction Projects.
Usually, intrusion damage is caused by one of three mains causes:
- Vermin Infestation.
- Tree Root Intrusion.
- Accidental Intrusion Through Maintenance or Groundwork.
How Will SDS Provide Drain Repair Services in Richmond?
Before our experienced team of drainage specialists will start any repairs, they will conduct a CCTV drain survey. Following this survey, we will usually be able to recommend a form of treatment. This could include drain repairs, such as drain lining, or replacement of the affected pipe.
A CCTV drain survey will allow our drainage specialists the opportunity to deliver a complete overview of your system. Using a CCTV drain survey, we will be able to identify the exact location of the drainage damage. We can also identify the cause of the damage and offer advice on how to prevent it in the future.
Following a CCTV drain survey, we will be able to recommend whether repair or replacement is more advisable. Whatever kind of project we go ahead with, this survey will alert us to a range of different features. These can include:
- The Exact Location of the Damage.
- What Caused the Drainage Issues?
- The Actual Layout of Your Drainage System.
- How Accessible the Damaged Pipe Is.
- How Deep Your Damaged Drain Is.
Drain lining is one of the most common kinds of in-situ drain repair services. It is an in-situ form of treatment which doesn’t require excavation. Drain lining is usually recommended when our CCTV drain survey has identified cracks in the drain pipe. This kind of treatment can also be used when it comes to collapsed drains.
Before we start drain lining, we will use high-pressure water-jetting to clear any blockages. This will help to create a smooth area for the drain lining to form into the correct shape.
Drain lining will create a hard-wearing sealant in these cracks or open spaces. This can restore the drain to its former glory and prevent long-term damage to your property. Drain lining is a practical choice for all but the most severe of drainage problems. It will create watertight seal and prevent grey water and waste from escaping into the surrounding soil or property. In most cases, effective drain lining, combined with good drainage care, can provide a premium service for more than 50 years.
In addition to in-situ repair services, we can deliver a complete range of drainage excavation and replacement services. If in-situ repairs are not possible, we can use drain moling and complete excavation to access the damage drain. From there, we can conduct complete replacement services to ensure long-term reliability.
