Blocked Gutters

DS Serve can both clear and clean blocked gutters.  This will generally take a couple of hours depending on the size of the house and number of gutters.

If you don't have gutters we will happily supply and fit gutters that will stand the test of time.  Without adequate guttering your property is at risk of increased erosion to fascias & walls; increased wear on your foundation; increased ingress of water into your property's interior walls and rainwater dripping where it shouldn't.

If your gutter is blocked, it could suffer all of the above plus the blockage could force water to collect or divert to places where it could leak or overflow (e.g. into your woodwork or brickwork), and cause mould, electrical or other problems which you generally wouldn't want to happen.

Our no call-out charge engineers are on-call 24 hrs a day 7 days a week in London & Kent, so you can be assured of a quick and professional response to solving your problems with your drains. If you are near or in London and need a drain company in an emergency for drain services, you have come to the right place.


Blocked Downpipes


Blockages within pipes can freeze, expand and crack the downpipe so it’s particularly important to deal with them straightaway.  On repairing a section of your piping, we always make the final check to see that it is secure with new sealing gaskets, supporting brackets and end sealing clips.



If your down-pipe is blocked, you could use a rods, which would need to be the full length of the drain to push through the blockage from above.

If your blockage is caused by just leaves, you may be ok with this as the solution to your problem.  You should be careful to make sure you are not pushing the debris down to a gully. 

For the above method you will need to ensure that your ladder is secure and it allows you to reach up and down into the downpipe without any instability.  If you are not comfortable, call a professional to avoid any fall.  The method is a little more difficult if your down-pipe contains an angle. 


How do I clear the angles in my downpipe?

If you need to clear an angled down-pipe you will need a stiff wire instead of a rod to navigate the angle.  Your leverage may not be as good with the wire and working around the angle.  If you cannot clear the blockage, you could consider taking the pipe apart at the join.
