Drainage Services FAQs

drainage services faqs

What should I do if I suspect a blockage in my drains?

A blockage in your drains may be the cause of any strange gurgling sounds or delayed drainage. When this happens, it's advisable to stop using the impacted fixtures and get in touch with a reputable drainage company right away so they can diagnose and remedy the problem.

How can I prevent tree roots from causing damage to my drains?

Infiltration of tree roots into drainage pipes can result in clogs and structural damage as they search for moisture and nutrients. Consider growing trees and shrubs away from the drainage system on your property to avoid this, and keep your garden well-maintained to control roots.

What are the common signs of a drainage problem?

In addition to poor drainage and unpleasant smells, additional indicators of a drainage problem could be sinkholes, wet areas in your yard or even sewage backups. It's critical to take quick action to address the issue if you see any of these symptoms to stop additional harm and health risks.

Frequent drain maintenance, such as cleaning and inspections regularly, will help your drainage system last longer and help avert significant problems. To maintain the best possible condition for your drains, consider hiring a professional drainage service for annual or bi-annual inspections.

How can I locate the main drainage access points on my property?

When performing maintenance or in an emergency, knowing where your primary drainage access points are might be helpful. These access points are usually located in utility spaces like crawl spaces or basements, or close to the edge of your property. If in doubt, look for the plans for your house or get expert assistance to find them.

How much does drainage system installation cost?

The cost of drainage system installation can vary depending on factors such as the size of the property, the complexity of the drainage system, and the materials used. On average, homeowners can expect to pay between $1,500 and $5,000 for basic drainage system installation.

How long does it take to install a drainage system?

The timeframe for installing a drainage system depends on various factors, including the size of the project and the weather conditions. In general, a simple drainage system installation can be completed in a few days, while more complex projects may take several weeks to finish.

Will installing a drainage system increase my property's value?

Improving drainage can enhance the value of your property by preventing water damage and preserving the integrity of structures and landscapes. Additionally, a well-maintained drainage system can make your property more attractive to potential buyers.
