Common Causes Of Drain Damage

Drains can become damaged for various reasons. Having them up without any maintenance could mean damage becomes more severe, while identifying and sorting problems as soon as they are noticed can lead to better longevity.

CCTV drain surveys can diagnose specific issues for the best solutions to be found. Some locations of drainage will have increased chances of being damaged.

Common Causes Of Drain Damage

This is because external factors can also damage a drainage situation. 

Some prevalent examples of this are if tree's or other foliage do or have the potential to grow nearby, pieces can fall or even root within the drains themselves, causing damage that would require repairs. 

Another potential cause of damage is a land movement or subsidence; this can dislodge or cause damage to drainage situations. 

Damage can be caused to drains from time. While this can be attributed to various factors, the longer a drainage solution is in place without being inspected, the higher the chance of faults.

Many drain systems are old and assembled from materials that are vulnerable to cracking and other types of damage. Having cracks or further damage in a drain can mean that water can be lost from the drainage system, reducing efficiency and potential erosion or other structural damage nearby. 

When pipework is fractured, it can easily lead to blocked drains. However, they wouldn't be solved just by drain cleaning, so using a professional is essential.

Drains can collapse from having too much pressure applied to the top of a drain. This damage can be exasperated by corrosion over time, meaning that there would be an increased risk of such a collapse, which can lead to blockages, in some cases, flooding. 

This can be hazardous and costly to repair, so it is important to take steps that prevent the worst case from happening.

Roots can lead to damaged pipework or can create further damage to an already impeded drainage system. 

They can cause either blockages or breaks in the pipework itself.

This is in part a complication coming about with frequently used pipe material from the 1960s, predominately pitching fibre. This material is defective due to the chance of breaking and delaminating.

It has problems of frequently deteriorating, which can then cause blockages within the drainage system.

Signs That Your Drain Is Damaged

Blockages can vary in severity, so diagnosing the issue and what caused it is essential, leading to the utility of professionals being a large boon. We can help find out what went wrong and what the best solution is for you, given your situation. Fixing issues at the source means that you won't have to call someone out again soon after and that other potential problems can be found such that preventative measures can be taken. 

Something that can be associated with this is if gurgling sounds are present from drains or plug holes, as it indicates that air is trapped within a drain which escapes when water is run. As well as this, if within a toilet the water level rises higher than normal, especially to the point of overflowing, then there is very likely an issue with your drainage which needs to be remedied as soon as possible to prevent the other problems or damage from occurring.

Damp and mould can cause severe damage to properties and lead to extremely costly repairs if not caught quickly. They can also affect the health of the inhabitants or those who spend time within the property, which is another reason to remove the issue as soon as possible. It is possible that drains could be the root cause of damp within a property. 

Drainage professionals can fix this to make sure that the problem is solved for good, no matter the state of the drain if it caused it.

If you have signs of a rodent infestation, whether it is holes in items or walls, droppings or sightings, it is important to find the cause. It is important to consider all the options, and there is a chance that a poorly installed or broken drainage system may be the reason. 

CCTV technology is often used, meaning entry points of rodents can be found if the problem is drain related, then a drain repair can be conducted to prevent repeat cases.

Subsidence is a considerable threat to a property's structural integrity, so if there is any chance of it occurring, it needs to be remedied at the root cause to ensure it can't happen again. 

CCTV surveys can be used to find the causes, which means an effective solution can be put in place to resolve the long and short term issues.

Unpleasant smells from drains are a common sign of issues with drainage systems, whether blockage or damage. It is something that doesn't need to be put up with for long, with blockages usually only the blockage needs to be removed, whereas smells from structural damage often need for the issue to be fixed to prevent the smell from reappearing. 

Drains can be blocked due to food debris becoming stuck to pipes, which will emit foul and disturbing smells as it gradually decomposes. This is a common cause of odours coming from drains, and this smell will often be exasperated as taps are turned on. 

Our engineers have commercial and other solutions available to ensure that the problem can be sorted as soon as possible, allowing for operations to continue.
