Commercial Drain Servicing
Monthly drain service plans for businesses with multiple staff occupancy
As you will be aware, blocked toilets, flooded entrances and unbearable smells can have a disastrous impact on your day to day business.
You may associate blocked drains with periods of heavy rainfall, and to an extent you would be right. In June 2018, we had just 5% of the rain we would normally expect. What you may be unaware of, is that low rainfall can lead to “Dry Weather Blockages” where pockets of debris can build up, and harden. At the moment this is fine, but once rainfall picks up and flushes through these hard pockets, blockages are likely to be common and unpleasant (because of the heat). It has been an almost uncharted period of dry weather in the UK, and we believe this problem will become prominent this year.
The Bad News
Hot weather creates slow periods for drain clearance companies; so once the rainfall starts it is likely they will be busy, and charging a premium to make up for leaner periods of business.
The Good News (Finally)
At Drain Clearance UK, our business model is based on prevention rather than cure. With our monthly service plans, all areas are checked and serviced as required to prevent being stung with high fees when you are in a desperate, time critical situation. The monthly visit includes servicing of urinals, traps and pipes, sinks, and external foul drains.
Depending on the size of your business, Drain Clearance UK can offer this service for as little as £30.00/month.

A blocked drain at your business could result in sewer water backing up and overflowing into the building. Sewer waste odour is enough to drive people out of the building. A clogged and flooded sewer system can also cause permanent health risks.
Your business premises may be too big with several toilet locations, sinks and other drains for one maintenance man to handle if things get bad quickly. Your custodian may not have the expertise to handle a massive sewer drain problem.

Reasons To Get Your Drains Serviced
Insects & Pests
A blocked drain at your business premises can be a breeding ground for some of the most disgusting insects, bacteria and mould. You certainly do not want cockroaches running on the bathroom or company kitchen floors or inside the cupboards! Drain flies can lay their eggs in the dirty dark drains and form their own ecosystem. Without being cleaned on a regular basis, the floor drains will allow insects to set up housing inside your building.
Dirty, filthy floor drains can attract black mould. The action produces a poisonous fungus known as mycotoxins. This dangerous fungus can cause migraine headaches, respiratory infections, sinus congestion, chronic fatigue, and allergies.
Black mould can form in rooms in commercial buildings with poor ventilation, like restrooms and can pose a serious threat to human health and well-being. The presence of small ant colonies in sink basins indicates the presence of black mould. Professional drain cleaner services will have the proper chemicals to dispose of black mould.
The foul odour that emanates from improperly cleaned or blocked drains can be associated with the faecal matter that collects in pipes.
A clog that was not thoroughly cleaned out or sewage that has backed up can create a very foul odour. The odour from faecal matter is not the real concern though, it is the microbes that live in the faecal matter that can cause cholera, dysentery, pinworms, tapeworms and the like.
Methane and hydrogen sulfide, common sewer gases, can get into buildings through the plumbing. Floor drains are the most common route for sewer gases to escape, but broken drain lines is another route known for sewer gases.
Studies done in the 1960s revealed some disturbing information about bacteria that resides in toilets. One study discovered that flushing a toilet with closing the lid bacteria can travel up to six feet through the air and even lodge on a toothbrush.
As a result of a study of adult Americans, it was learned that 86% of those adults believed if a business like a restaurant had dirty bathrooms the kitchen was dirty as well.
