Drain Cleaning Services in London
Is your bath, toilet or sink draining slower than usual? Perhaps there’s a foul smell coming from the drains? If so, why not take advantage of our drain cleaning services in London?
Many homes and businesses in the UK are affected by hard water – particularly London and the south-east – meaning scale builds up quickly within drainage systems in these areas. This build-up impacts on the flow of water within the system and creates a reduction in what’s known as ‘hydraulic capacity’ – calling for routine drain pipe cleaning.
Drain cleaning at Accelerated Drain Services
Accelerated Drain Services are the experts when it comes to drain cleaning in London. We use only the best tools for the job – from CCTV equipment to high-pressure water jetting equipment and special electro-mechanical machines – and clear and clean drains in no time – providing a service that’s second to none.
Our NADC (National Association of Drainage Contractors) certified engineers can carry out a CCTV drain survey to inspect the condition of your sewers. Using the footage from the CCTV survey, we can then determine the best treatment to resolve the issue – be it high-pressure jet cleaning, unblocking or repairs.
Once the problem has been rectified, the best way to prevent future issues is to arrange for them to be regularly cleaned – preventing the build-up of limescale. Routine descaling will also help to maximise flow capacity at all times and keep the risk of blockages and flooding to a minimum.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of drain cleaning in London?
Most people tend not to think about drain cleaning (or sewer cleaning) until something goes wrong – like a clogged drain or foul smell coming from the sink. However, a little preventative maintenance can go a long way and will eliminate such problems further down the line.
As mentioned above, having your pipes regularly cleaned will prevent bad odours and drainage blocks. It will wash away mould spores and prevent bacteria from building up (which causes the smells!), and water and waste will be able to flow with ease.
Another thing about drain cleaning in London is that it will prevent leaks from forming and, in turn, extend the life of your existing drain pipes. So no need to worry about costly replacements and repairs.
The ADS team is here to help so, if you would like to know more about the benefits sewer cleaning can bring, give us a call on 0208 594 7171.
How often should I schedule drain cleaning?
We recommend you have your drains in London cleaned professionally once a year (at least!) – even if you don’t spot any signs that your drains are blocked.
Drain pipe cleaning plays a huge part in maintaining the health of your drains and it’s something that is often overlooked by many people, not just in London. So, instead of waiting for your drains to block, you can take a proactive approach and schedule routine cleaning to prevent minor problems escalating into serious ones.
You shouldn’t need to have your drains cleaned more than once a year to reap the benefits, however, our team are experts in London drain cleaning and can give you a more detailed schedule based on your drainage needs.
Is professional drain cleaning in London necessary?
The short answer is yes.
Although there are some blockages that you will be able to clear yourself using a plunger – and off-the-shelf solutions are a tempting shortcut – there are times where you may require more extensive drain cleaning from professionals, like us at ADS.
Professional drain cleaning in London will improve the longevity of your drainage system and keep everything functioning at the highest quality.
Our experts use only the most reliable equipment and techniques for drain pipe cleaning in London, including CCTV cameras and high-pressure water jets that scour away most of the build-up inside pipes (i.e. hair, soap scum, hard water deposits, fats, oils and grease).
How much does drain cleaning cost in London?
Several factors affect the overall cost of drain cleaning in London, most notably the type and severity of the blockage, the condition of your drains, and the method required to resolve the problem.
Though it depends on the drainage company, if the blockage is easily accessible, you can expect to pay around the £80 mark (excluding labour costs) and it should take no more than an hour or two to complete.
If your drains are severely blocked, our engineers may need to carry out a CCTV survey to take a closer look at the inside of your drainage system. Rods and jetting might also be required to clear the obstruction and tackle stubborn deposits within the pipework. Due to the amount of extra work and time involved, this usually adds to the overall cost of drain cleaning.
The best way to determine how much it will cost you to have your drains professionally cleaned by the team at ADS is to get in touch. This way, we can discuss your requirements in detail and identify the best course of action to take – ensuring you don’t spend a penny more than you need to.
Is there anything I can do to prevent my drains from getting clogged?
Yes – there are lots of things you can do to prevent your drains from getting blocked, including simple things like watching what you’re putting down the drain.
Avoid flushing the following items down the drain:
• Baby wipes
• Grease, oils, and fats
• Paper towels
• Sanitary products
• Toxic chemicals
It’s worth investing in a sink strainer for your kitchen sink, too. This will catch any food debris before it escapes down the plughole, and also works well in the bath or shower, preventing hair from clogging the drain.
After using the sink in the kitchen or bathroom, run hot water to avoid soap scum and grease build-up.
One of the best ways to prevent drain blockages, and keep your drainpipes clean, is to arrange professional drain cleaning regularly.
Having your drains cleaned frequently will keep blockages and flooding at bay, and ultimately maximise the flow capacity of your drainage system. Here at ADS, we use state-of-the-art equipment to clean and clear drains in next to no time.
