Drainage issues in a home can be seriously stressful. From blocked sinks to toilets that are failing to drain properly, these problems can be unhygienic and can potentially cause further damage to a property.

Professional drain maintenance services will keep household drains in tip-top condition. While it can be tempting to try and rectify the issue with a bit of DIY, it is always recommended to rely on the expertise of a professional - for a number of reasons. Firstly, store-bought chemical drain cleaners can be highly hazardous and can cause serious injury if they are not properly handled. Additionally, the chemicals may not be effective at cleaning blockage the first time around, allowing the issue to become worse over time and resulting in costly repairs.

Therefore, it is often safer, quicker and more financially efficient to rely on experienced drainage companies to get everything back up and running again if disaster strikes. Luckily, Hoppy is here to help.

Considerations when hiring a drain unblocking service

When dealing with something as important as a property’s drains, it’s vital that you find someone you can really trust. In order to do so, make sure you understand the drain service options a company offers. From a simple drain cleaning service to more complex repair work, you should know that the professional you hire knows exactly what they are doing. Therefore, don’t be afraid to ask plenty of questions early on.

It is a good idea to ask the drain experts about their qualifications and membership of any voluntary trade bodies. A drainage expert may hold a Diploma in Sewerage and Drainage Operations, have completed a City & Guilds Drainage Engineer Course, or be a member of the National Association of Drainage Contractors. These accolades act as a seal of quality assurance that will give you complete peace of mind. It is also recommended that you request references from previous clients to get an insight into the quality, speed and professionalism of their work.

Finally, make sure you know what their call out times are. While general cleaning work can be conducted pretty much at any time of the day, other drainage issues can be much more serious and urgent. If possible, try to choose a company that offers flexible hours, so they are able to attend to any issues that occur promptly.
