Happy Holidays!

With the summer HERE, nobody wants their holiday time interrupted by leaky pipes, blocked drains or clogged toilets. With that in mind – call us as soon as you have a drainage problem and we will work with you, at a time that suits you. Whether you have young children you need to plan around, or simply want peace of mind so you can sit back, relax and enjoy your garden, remember we are here, morning, noon and night, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year! Here’s to a happy holiday season!

With this week potentially seeing one of the hottest days on record, how long will this hot spell last? Find out HERE!




We can help you protect your home and place of work in a heatwave, by being on call 24/7 to help you clear blocked drains and gutters. If you need some help regarding how to protect yourself in such weather, please stick to the advice here...

The NHS advise is to avoid the heat by not going out between 11am and 3pm, which is the hottest part of the day.

Keep rooms cool by shutting the windows and pulling down the shades if the temperatures are hotter outdoors than inside.

When it’s cooler – and if it’s safe to do so – then you can open the windows for ventilation.

Identify the coolest room in the house where you can seek solace.

And at night, sleep on cotton sheets and maybe use a fan which you can make more effective by placing frozen water bottles nearby.

Even though there are hosepipe bans in place, water is your friend in the hot weather. Have a cool bath or shower and splash yourself with cool water during the day. Also remember to drink it regularly and avoid excess alcohol and caffeine or drinks that are high in sugar.
