CCTV Drain Surveys: Important For Homeowners

You may be moving into new property and there’s two things you need to do, no it’s not to do with moving furniture in or decorating, it’s drain surveys. This may be last on your list of priorities, but you should carry out CCTV Drain Surveys on both your new property – and your old one. In this post, we’re going to explain why.

What kind of state are the drains in at your new property?

Having a drain survey done is probably the last thing you’d think of but, thinking in the long-term it could save you time and money. You don’t know what state the previous owners have left the drains in and it could be blocked. So rather than have a nasty surprise a few days or weeks after moving in, why not make sure you have the drains examined thoroughly with a CCTV drain survey. 

Our Drainage Engineers are Properly Trained and Qualified

Here at East Scotland Drainage we send a drainage engineer round who will use the latest CCTV equipment to inspect the drain, a camera will be inserted so the engineer can find any problems and following this, you’ll get a survey report detailing the problems, if there are any.

Drains Can Get Blocked by All Sorts of Objects

Drains can get blocked by all sorts of things, such as tree roots, fat and grease build-up, fractured pipes and failed joints. It’s best to get this cleared so you can have clear drains, which are much healthier and safer for you and your family.

Carry Out a CCTV Drain Survey at Your Old Property Too

Also think about having a CCTV drain survey of your old property and this will help you to leave less in the way of problems for the new owners when they move in to your old house. A full report of your drains following an inspection will help act as proof to the new owners that everything is working and ready to move in to.
