They did an excellent job of fixing a drain blockage. Turned out to be a hair comb that had somehow gut flushed down the toilet.
No idea!
Will definitely use them again the next time I do something stupid.

    What causes dirty drains?

    Dirty drains can be caused by several different factors that can be resolved by our cleaning services. Some of the most common causes of dirty drains occur naturally from our bodies, including our hair and skin cells. These can not only cause build-up of dirt, but hair is also one of the main causes of blockages. Other external causes are food waste, FOGs (fats, oils and grease), hygiene products, pipe scale and nature such as tree roots.

    Here at Cotswold Drainage, we understand that not every property or business owner has the time to clean their drains themselves due to their busy life and work schedules. Let us take the hassle of drain cleaning away from you and achieve sparkling clean and efficient drainage systems for your property.

    Why should you keep your drains clean?

    Maintenance and drain cleaning are important factors, as poorly maintained systems can lead to blockages, bad odours and clogs. Therefore, taking care of your drains by contacting Cotswold Drainage for efficient and specialist professional drain cleaning will prevent any future issues from arising and keep your water flowing smoothly. Taking care of your drains will stop foul smells from reaching your home and office building, enabling a more welcoming and comfortable environment for occupants and visitors.

    Additionally, dirty drains can, over time, increase the risk of health issues related to those who have asthma, as dirt enables mould and bacteria to grow. Cotswold Drainage will survey your dirty drains before and after drain cleaning has taken place, ensuring your drainage systems are free from these harmful elements.

    Another issue with why you should keep your drains clean is that blockages and contaminants can affect the structural integrity of the drains and piping, which can lead to leaks soaking into the foundations of your property. Our expert drain cleaning service will save you costs in the long run from having to pay for cracked drain repair as a result of dirty drains damaging the structural integrity of the pipework.

    Drain cleaning FAQs

    How to keep drains clean?

    To prevent hair, food particles and other debris from entering the drain you can use strainers or stoppers. Another way is to avoid pouring FOGs (fats, oils and grease) down the drain after cooking or during the washing-up process, as these types of contaminants can damage drainage and sewer systems and cause blockages.

    However, the best way to keep your drains clean is to hire professionals here at Cotswold Drainage with our expert drain cleaning services.

    How to clean drainpipes?

    To clean your drainpipes, you can use your hand (but protect your skin by wearing a glove) or a small brush to remove any visible contaminants and discard them properly. Additionally, you can use a plunger to create suction to dislodge any clogs and blockages.

    We always advise you to seek help from professional drain and pipe cleaners like Cotswold Drainage.

    How to clean outside drains?

    You can use a garden hose with a high-pressure nozzle attachment to flush out the drain by directing the water down the drain clearing any accumulated dirt and allowing the drain to flow freely. 

    For more serious issues relating to outside drainage systems, Cotswold Drainage is equipped with high-powered jet systems that can clear numerous build-ups from your outside drains with ease. 

    How to clean smelly drains?

    To clean odorous drains, follow these instructions:

    1. Pour down the drain a mixture of vinegar and baking soda and let the mixture remain for 15 to 30 minutes to allow any organic contaminants or bacteria contributing to the smell to decompose.
    2. To remove the vinegar and baking soda mixture from the drain, run hot water through it.
    3. You can also try pouring a solution of hot water and lemon juice down the drain if the smell doesn’t dissipate.
    4. These solutions can be performed frequently, around once a week, to keep your drains smelling nice and fresh.
      Some contaminants may require more expert solutions to eradicate bad smells. Both commercial and domestic properties can benefit from our drain cleaning services to remove foul odours safely.
    How to clean a shower drain?

    To effectively clean a shower drain, you must first remove the shower drain cover if possible, by either lifting it off or removing it by unwinding the screws with a screwdriver. Next, grab a flashlight or torch of some kind and check for any visible hair or debris near the opening. Hair is one of the most common causes of blocked shower drains, which can be removed by hand or a strong brush. If there is a visible blockage, you can even use a wire hanger to remove it.

    If you are unable to locate the blockage or if it is further down in your shower drain, then do not hesitate to contact us here at Cotswold Drainage.

    Why do I need my drains cleaned?

     Maintenance is an important factor as badly maintained drains can lead to blockages, bad odours, and clogs so, taking care of your drains will prevent any future issues from arising and keep your water flowing smoothly.
