Direct Drains provide fast and cost effective drain root removals in London. Water and its nutrients are essential to the growth of trees so it is no surprise that any nearby roots of trees immediately near your home will stretch and expand towards what they need.
Cracks in piping and drains literally emit vapours that roots pick up on and will work their way to reach, continuing to grow inside such cracks until you are left with a blocked pipe completely. This is the biggest reason behind the majority of underground pipe blockage problems.
Direct Drains can help you get rid of this problem and remove tree roots from your drain pipes in London. We can investigate your pipework and any blockages using CCTV cameras to find the literal “root” of the problem. This is so that we can determine how big the root growth is and what damage has actually occurred within the pipes.
We are able to get rid of the drain root growth in London by using chemical treatments or mechanical flailing devices that can get into the affected pipework and use high pressured water to break down the roots by effectively cutting them up into small pieces which facilitates a flow again in the pipe.
Once this “flushing” out of the pipework is complete, a sensible next step would be to install a structural liner which reduces the future possibility of roots ever getting into the drain again.
Should your pipework and affected drain be beyond simple method repair, it will result in the entire pipe being replaced, which will involve excavation work to dig it up and have a new one laid down in its place. The upside of this is that you will have newer pipes with much more long term longevity and will not be susceptible to roots getting in, which is a much bigger risk for older type pipes.
