Don't Wait!

If you have a blocked drain, our advice is not to leave it. Minor problems can quickly develop into bigger issues.

Blocked drains typically start with partial obstructions caused by debris, grease, hair and other material. If not addressed, additional material can accumulate and lead to severe blockages which may completely obstruct flow. As drain blockages worsen, waste liquids and solids are prevented from flowing at all, often resulting in waste water backing up in sinks, toilets, baths, showers, and outside drains.

Accumulated liquids and debris in blocked drains emit unpleasant odours into buildings and may lead to other undesirable symptoms, including problems with flies, cockroaches, and rats. Excess moisture from blocked drains can damage floors and walls with which it comes into contact as well as helping to create an environment condusive to mould growth. Corrective action when the situation reaches this point can be very costly and time consuming.

Common Causes of Blocked Drains

For minor blockages, DIY techniques can be successfully used to unblock drains without the need to call in a Drainage Specialist.

Carefully pour boiling water down the drain in two or three stages, allowing it to work for a few seconds between each pour. Hot water can help break down grease and fats and remove minor blockages.

Use a plunger designed for the type of blockage youre trying to remove. The suction from a plunger can help to remove minor drain blockages.

Mix baking soda and vinegar in equal quantities and pour into the drain followed by hot water. The chemical reaction created can help to dislodge slightly more stubborn drain blockages.

Chemical drain cleaners can be an effective method for unblocking drains, but be careful to excersize caution when using and always read the instructions to ensure safety and suitability.

When DIY methods fail and you need to call a drainage specialist, get in touch with Daniel James Drainage Services for fixed price drain unblocking in Bracknell, Binfield, Warfield, and Winkfield.

    Don't wait.. We had a drain that was some what blocked and we got our self's in a right mess. for months we worried about the cost, the mess, the thought of being robbed by unreliable untrustworthy trades men. But it had to be looked at. Hand on heart I can tell you Daniel James were helpful from the start. easy to book an appointment they came the next day. the young man was so very polite and really did know his trade. so efficient the job was done in 10 mins. after months of worry and stress it is such a relief and well worth the cost (that was very restable) so i would recommend them based on my experience.

Responsibility for Blocked Drains in Bracknell?

Infographic showing who's responsible for blocked drains

If you suspect you're dealing with a blocked drain, it's important to establish whether unblocking it is your responsibility. If the drain is located outside of your property's boundary, or shared with a neighbouring property, it's likely to be the responsibility of Thames Water who manage and maintain sewers and lateral drains that connect to public foul or surface water sewer systems in the Bracknell Forest Borough area.

When a blockage exists within the boundary of your property it can get a little more complicated to establish responsibility. Let's start with internal blockages like sinks, showers and baths... These are always the responsibility of the property owner along with outside kitchen drains. You will often be able to remove blockages yourself using a range of 'DIY' methods but should contact a drainage specialist where problems persist or worsen.

When dealing with blocked outside drains, property owners are responsible for unblocking and maintaining the sections of drain the solely service their property. When the outside drain joins a shared drain it ceases to be the responsibility of the property owner and for Bracknell, becomes the responsibility of Thames Water.

Our highly experienced customer services team are here to help you determine whether you're responsible for drainage issues at your home or business. Get in touch if you're experiencing the problem of blocked drains Bracknell and need to find out who's responsible.
