“We had noticed a nasty smell coming from the drains for a while but only when we used the washing machine. Thanks to Drain Doctor Bedford and Milton Keynes the smell – and the blockage – is now gone!”

Mr N. – Milton Keynes

The ominous smell of blocked drains is something that most households experience at one time or another.

What people don’t always realise is that the problem causing the blockage can be in another part of the drainage system to where the smells are noticed.

Milton Keynes resident Mr N. contacted the Drain Doctor Bedford & Milton Keynes office to ask our advice about a nasty smell that came from the drains whenever his washing machine had been used.

An appointment was made to investigate the problem and cure it if possible. Technicians quickly set to work with remote control push-rod CCTV cameras to try to locate the source of the problem.

A short investigation revealed that a small section of pipe had cracked a little way from the washing machine drain.

Roots from nearby plants had made their way in through the cracks and grown inside the pipe creating a sieve-like net that caught any debris washed through the drains creating the blockage and causing water to collect within the pipe, unable to drain away.

The standing water was the source of the unpleasant smells that alerted Mr N. to the blockage.
High-pressure water jets were used to break down the blockage and clear the root mass from the drainpipe.

The Drain Doctor Bedford & Milton Keynes technicians informed the Milton Keynes resident about the damage to the pipes and arranged for our office staff to prepare a quote for the repair.
