Services include:


  • Clearing Blocked Drains – A blocked toilet, smelly sink or damaged drain will definitely drive away customers in the retail sector. Drains can often become blocked by a variety of foreign objects, including grime, dirt and other debris. Usually, clearance is the most appropriate solution to an overflowing or bad smelling drain, but we also offer a survey and inspection service in order to find out exactly what the drainage issue is. This means that we can rectify your issue as quickly and effectively as possible.
