“We must thank your staff for the professional way that they dealt with the blocked drain. They were efficient and polite and worked non-stop until the drain was clear. We were very impressed with how they made sure their work didn’t impact on our business.”

We were able to respond quickly to a call from a pre-school nursery in Biggleswade near Bedford that had a blocked drain in the outside play area. The area was used by young children who were being kept indoors until the problem had been sorted out.

Our technician sent a remote controlled CCTV camera down the drain from an inspection chamber in the cloakrooms to identify the exact location of the blockage.

We then used high-pressure water jets from a manhole cover just inside the boundary of the property and worked to clear the blockage.

It is important that a back flow of water doesn’t flood a property when we are working to clear a blocked drain. We are always careful to jet a blockage from further down a drain run so that water flows away safely.

The blockage was quickly broken down and flushed away from the property and the CCTV camera was used once more to check the drain run for any damage and indications about the cause of the blockage. 

Happily no damage was found and the Drain Doctor Bedford & Milton Keynes technicians left the site in under an hour meaning that the outside area was safe for the children to play in again.
