Drain problems can seem like a minor inconvenience, but they can soon add up to a big problem – and an even bigger expense. Over the years, we’ve been called out to a host of drainage disasters around Birmingham and the surrounding areas. These disasters have often caused damage to property and ultimately damage to our customer’s wallets. Many of these disasters might not have been so catastrophic if preventative action had been taken – like a CCTV drain camera survey.
Reasons to get a CCTV Drain Survey from Birmingham’s Drain Experts
Whether you’re a homeowner or a business owner, or even just a prospective one, there are many reasons why a CCTV drain survey would be a good idea. In this guide, we explore just five of these reasons.
1. Buying a new property
Would you buy a house without a building survey? Just as you want to be aware of any structural issues, a drainage survey can give you insight into any potentially costly or difficult drainage issues. Avoid nasty surprises by looking at what lies beneath your dream property.
2. Building work
If you’re looking to build an extension or annexe, in order to draw up plans you’re going to need to have an accurate plan of the drainage system underneath your property. A CCTV drain survey is an essential part of your building preparations.
3. Address drainage issues
Is there a nasty smell lingering in your building? Is your taking longer to drain than usual? If you can’t seem to find an obvious cause then a CCTV drain survey can help you visualise and treat the issue. The key is nipping these issues in the bud rather than allowing them to escalate.
4. Water ingress or dampness within your property
If you’ve been experiencing issues with rising damp or unexplained water damage inside your property, there may be a reason. Often, our CCTV drain survey experts in Birmingham have been able to address years of unexplained problems. Damp can be cured by revealing slow leaks caused by issues like root ingress or pest damage to drainage systems. By the time our services have been called in, homeowners have often spent thousands trying to control and repair damp issues.
5. You live in an older property with an older drainage system
If your property is old then so is the drainage system that serves it. Those old pipes are at risk from corrosion, bursting, collapse and damage from pests, roots or years of abuse. It’s better to know about potential issues and plan for repairs than to be faced with a surprise bill for drain repairs.
Prevention with CCTV drain survey is better than the cure
A drainage survey might seem like something you can put off today, but it could save you time, money and damage to property tomorrow. Whatever you find, from corroded pipes to pests, we can help put it right before it causes a bigger problem.
