Summer is the ideal time of year to get work done on your drains because the weather is less likely to interfere. But what kind of things might you need to have done?
Top of the list is upgrading your drainage after an extension. You often find that builders don't include sufficient drainage in an extension and this can lead to all sorts of problems down the line.
If you've had your home extended, it's a good idea to get a drains professional in to check your drains and make sure they're up to scratch. That includes checking there's enough capacity and that new and old pipework is working together properly.
You should also be on the lookout for any signs that your drains might be leaking. This can include water pooling around your property or wet patches on the walls or ceiling.
Other signs of drains leaking can be water constantly seeping through the ground on a lawn where pipes run. This is often due to tree roots growing around and into the pipes.
If you're not sure what to do, it's always best to get in touch with a professional. They'll be able to advise you on the best course of action and help you get your drainage system up to scratch.
