Rats in the Drains? Rat Prevention in St Albans
Discovering rats in your home is a real problem. Besides carrying disease, this pesky vermin can also do an incredible amount of damage to your home. We find that many rats enter a property through the drainage so in addition to removing the problem with our pest control service, we also offer rat prevention methods to help stop rates from entering your property in the first place.
Rat blockers are an incredibly effective method at preventing rats from setting up a nest in your property. The metal plate mechanism that constitutes the rat blocker is fitted inside your drain pipes and acts as a one-way gateway so waste water and materials can exit your property unhindered but any pesky vermin attempting to travel through the drain pipe in the opposite direction will not be able to gain access.

Blocked Drain Clearance in St Albans
Nobody wants a blocked drain in St Albans or anywhere else in the country. They’re an inconvenience but they can be much worse. Blocked drain pipes can start as an unpleasant pungent odour coming from your grid or a slow-draining sink. It could even manifest as a blocked toilet that won’t flush or blocked bathroom sink. At the other end of the spectrum, you could come home to find your property flooded, causing hundreds of pounds worth of damage, if not thousands. All this can be avoided by hiring our services to clear your blocked drain in St Albans,
From drain jetting to drain rodding, our drainage engineers utilise the most effective techniques using professional drainage equipment to unblock, clear and clean the internal of the drainage system. In the event that high pressure water jetting or rodding doesn’t manage to shift your blockage, we can undertake a CCTV drain survey to find the culprit blocking your drains.
What causes blocked drains?
There are many things which can contribute to a blocked drain. A collapsed drain won’t be able to work properly and thus having a drain repair is paramount. In many other cases, there will be foreign materials that are trapped within the system that, more than likely, have accumulated over time. This often includes the likes of baby wipes and sanitary products that cannot break down easily. However, foreign materials can also extend to things like oil, grease and fat which can cause a tremendous amount of damage as they solidify inside the drain system and, not only prevent water from flowing freely, but can also erode the pipework. This is why it’s recommended to descale and clean drains to prevent any build up which could cause problems later on. In rarer cases, mother nature is responsible for drain blockages with unruly tree roots breaking through the drainage pipes, dislodging the connecting pipes and causing a physical blockage..
However big or small the blockage may be, Drain 365 can provide effective drain unblocking in St Albans.
CCTV Drain Surveys
In the event that your drain is blocked or you’ve been experiencing repeat instances of your drains clogging up, then it’s wise to have a survey inspection to find the culprit responsible.
Drain 365 can undertake CCTV Drain Surveys in St. Albans to identify any issues that may be plaguing your drain. Our drain survey camera is inserted into the drainage system with the camera feed displayed on a screen operated by our drainage engineer. All the camera footage is recorded and put onto a DVD for you as well as a written report of any findings we have discovered during the drain survey. In the event we find any problems, we can provide a quote for work to clear or repair the drains. The DVD we provided from your sruvey can allow you to get a quote elsewhere or to prove the condition of the system to third parties.
Homebuyer’s Drain Survey
If you’re looking to purchase a property, it’s advisable to have a homebuyer’s drain survey undertaken to ensure that the property you desire doesn’t come with any nasty surprises that you may only later discover. If the survey comes back and shows issues with the drainage system, you can then discuss possible solutions with the seller such as a reduced purchase fee to cover the repairs or repair before agreeing to sign.
In some cases, a mortgage provider may require you to have a homebuyer’s drain survey taken out in St. Albans, particularly if it’s a period property or known to be in a location with poor drainage.
Drain Repairs in St Albans
If your property is suffering from collapsed drains or a CCTV drain survey has highlighted problems with your drainage system, call Drain 365. We offer a range of drain repairs in St Albans to domestic and commercial properties to get the drainage system working efficiently once again. We can also provide pitch fibre repairs and drain replacements where necessary.
Drain repairs don’t necessarily involve excavating the ground to access the drain pipe. In some cases, drain moling can be undertaken instead which is akin to keyhole surgery. Referred to as trenchless technology, moling can be used to replace pipework and to reline existing drain pipes.
Drain relining is a service we provide in St Albans for drainage systems that may have suffered corrosion or cracks, Drain lining acts like a second skin and fits inside the existing drain pipe, covering any cracks and splits, and provides a smooth surface for water to travel through. This is a more cost-effective solution to repairing pipes instead of having replacements and is suitable for many drainage systems where the damage is minor and the condition of the pipe itself is still in good condition. We recently undertook drain lining in St. Albans at a local park.
Grease Trap Cleaning in St Albans
If you run a commercial building or kitchen, like a restaurant or cafe, there’s a good chance you’ll have a grease trap installed to prevent grease, fats and oils from entering the drainage system and clogging up your drains. However, over time and with regular use, the grease trap will become blocked itself and will need cleaning to continue working efficiently.
Drain 365 can provide one-off and regular grease trap cleaning in St Albans using our vacuum tanker services. All waste removed from grease traps is properly disposed of at the environmental waste sites.
