The Importance of Commercial Drainage Services


As the UK tentatively begins its journey out of lockdown, many businesses are starting to head back into their offices. 

Undoubtedly people will be excited to get back to normality, but there’s also plenty to think about before heading back into the office environment. 

Not only should you be ensuring your office is COVID-compliant and meets all the relevant safety regulations, but you should also be thinking about your various office amenities.  

One that may get overlooked is your property’s drainage. After spending so many months working from home, your office’s drainage may need some attention and in this article, we’ll outline the importance of commercial drainage services. 


Drain unblocking 

Blocked Drains

Blockages can cause all manner of problems if not dealt with correctly, and there are a number of preventative measures you can take to ensure no issues arise. 

It is good practice to regularly pour hot water into your drains to displace any blockages such as grease or fat. Combining this with a bicarbonate of soda and vinegar solution can also help you tackle any stubborn blockages that you may be struggling to remove. 

You should also inform all your employees what items must not be flushed down the toilet as they can cause serious blockages. This includes sanitary products, hair, dental floss, nappies and more. 

If you haven’t had any work done on your commercial drainage for quite some time, it’s always worthwhile calling in the professionals to assess your drains and deal with any blockages that may have occurred. 


CCTV Drain Surveys
