What is a CCTV drain survey?
We often take for granted the systems in place to provide us with everyday necessities such as clean water. In an age where it is so easy to switch on the tap and get water that is safe to drink, it is easy to forget about the drainage and sewage systems that provide this water.
This means that we forget about how they need to be taken care of and when something goes wrong it is often because we have neglected our drains. However, there are ways you can regularly maintain the standard of your drainage systems to ensure that they are fully functioning and safe.
CCTV drain surveys are a great way to thoroughly investigate the quality of your drains, and are the most cost effective way of preventing your drains from suffering any major damage.
There are often small, underlying problems with your drains that you wouldn’t otherwise know about, and these can lead on to some serious issues that are far more expensive to fix and can cause a great deal of damage.
To save yourself the money, time and stress, it is a good idea to get a CCTV drain survey done on your property. Using the latest software and technology, CCTV surveys can locate any problem, no matter how small it is, that could cause chaos in your drains. Problems with your drains will never go away on their own which is why CCTV surveys are a helpful tool in locating these defects and establishing the most effective course of action.
Drainage systems are often forgotten about, which means that they are not updated or restored regularly enough and any existing faults in them are left to grow in size and wreak havoc.
Among drain service provided, particularly old drainage systems will benefit more from a CCTV survey, as the survey can identify any decay or defects in them that has not been attended to. Drains that are old are much more vulnerable and susceptible to cracks and general wear and tear. These may seem like small problems, but over time the severity of them will grow and they will cause huge issues such as collapsed or burst pipes. This eventually leads onto flooding, which can severely damage your property as well as pose a major health risk. To avoid facing such a huge problem, it is a great idea to get a CCTV survey carried out on your drainage systems.
CCTV surveys are also highly useful if you are moving into a new property or selling your old one. The last thing you want is to move into a new house and find that the drains are not working because the previous owners were unaware of an underlying fault in the system. A CCTV survey will identify any potential risks for these sorts of issues, and you can nip the problem in the bud before it costs you more time and money.
If you are selling your home, you’ll want to make sure it is in the best condition, and that includes the drains, so why not get a CCTV drain survey done? If any issues are located during the survey they can be dealt with then and there, and the drain technician will always be happy to provide you with a comprehensive and useful report of the findings, as well as advice on any follow up actions that may be required.
No fault in your drains is going to go away on its own, so it is best to be prepared. CCTV drain surveys can give you peace of mind, knowing that the quality of your drains has been thoroughly investigated and taken care of.
