Blocked Drains Chelmsford

It can be extremely disruptive to your home or business if you suffer Chelmsford blocked Drains. If left unattended, drain blockages can quickly escalate, leading to more serious damage that in the worst cases can affect a property’s structure.

This is why it is important to contact a professional drainage company as soon as you suspect there is a problem.

What are the Main Causes of Drainage Issues

Taking care when disposing of household waste is a good way to avoid a blocked drain. In many cases, the cause of a blocked drain is self-inflicted, mainly because many householders are poorly informed when it comes to the best ways to dispose of waste products. Many things should never be poured or flushed down sinks or toilets.


For example, baby wipes and sanitary products should never be flushed down toilets as they expand rather than disintegrate which in time will lead to a blocked drain. The same applies to pouring grease, oils and fats down your sink as they will stick to the side of your drainpipes and solidify. A build-up of fats in your drainage system will lead to blocked pipes and if not dealt with more serious issues. Blocked drains are sometimes unavoidable and tree root intrusion is a case in point. If a tree root finds its way into your drainage system it will undoubtedly cause issues such as drain damage and blockages.

What are the Signs of Blocked Drains in Chelmsford?

There are several signs that your drains are becoming blocked and when you experience any of these you must act quickly to resolve them. These include slow draining sinks, baths and shower trays, loud irritating noises, foul smells around your drainage outlets and localised flooding. If you find yourself experiencing any of these issues then you probably have a blocked drain and it would be wise to employ the services of a professional drain cleaning company right away. We can assist with drain unblocking Chelmsford, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

What Drain Unblocking Services do we Provide?

We provide several industries leading drain clearance solutions designed to clear blocked drains quickly and effectively at Essex Drainage. When it comes to unblocking drains our professional drainage engineers in Chelmsford are equipped with the latest technology and tools to handle even the most complicated drainage problems. The comprehensive range of blocked drain Chelmsford we deliver to both commercial and residential clients include:

  • Drain Jetting – Drain jetting is a technique that uses high-pressure water jets to clean out a drainage system. Drain jetting is an extremely popular method for removing obstructions and drain cleaning. Once the drain jetting process is complete, your pipes will have a smooth surface that will aid in the flow of wastewater, thus preventing future blockages.
  • Drain Rodding – Drain Rodding is the process of manually removing stubborn blockages using hard-wearing drain rods. Drainage rods, which often have a camera attached so we can precisely locate the blockage, are inserted into your drainage system allowing us to force out even the most stubborn drain blockage. As a result, your drains will be able to flow freely and efficiently. For drain cleaning and to clear blocked drains, drain jetting and drain rodding can both be used together.
  • Tree Root Cutting – Sometimes tree roots can grow into your drainage system, causing not only blockages but also substantial damage. Through the use of a bladed cable, we can cut away roots and clear your drainage system of any obstruction and remove the possibility of damage.

Drain Lining Chelmsford

Here at Essex Drainage, we can deliver industry-leading drain lining in Chelmsford for both homes and businesses. The main purpose of drain lining is to repair and restore damaged drains without the need for more expensive drain replacement and excavation.

What is Drain Lining?

Drain lining has some similarities to keyhole surgery. This is because our engineers guide the resin layer into place from the surface of your system. Once the resin layer has been installed, it is then inflated, providing your drainage system with a second skin. Once in place, this resin layer not only seals leaks and cracks in the pipework but also gives your system a completely smooth surface.

As a result, the wastewater will flow unhindered through your drainage system, which will allow it to function efficiently. Another benefit of drain lining is that it provides you with a smooth and clean surface, reducing the likelihood of blockages occurring.
