Blocked Drains in Tunbridge Wells, Kent and the South East | Fast, Effective Unblocking

Is water draining slowly out of your sinks, bath or shower? Have you noticed an unpleasant smell coming from a plughole? If you notice a change in the performance of your drainage system, swift action can help to prevent blocked drains – not to mention the stress, disruption and costs they bring. Whether you’ve caught a situation early, or you’re already experiencing a full blockage, South East Drains Ltd provides fast, effective solutions that restore normality as quickly as possible.

Based in Tunbridge Wells, we unblock drains on a responsive basis. Locally, this includes our hometown, Tonbridge and Sevenoaks. However, we cover locations across Kent and the neighbouring areas.

A drain blockage isn’t always a case of inappropriate behaviour. While it’s true that improper disposal of waste products causes a significant amount of blockages, they aren’t solely to blame.

Other factors that lead to blocked drains include tree root intrusion and pipe damage as a result of earth movement. In some cases, pipes simply reach the end of their useful lifespan and fracture or collapse.

Whichever situation you face at your property, be it in Tunbridge Wells or anywhere else in the South East, our team is here to help. Backed by more than 30 years of trade experience, we cover every eventuality.

Our company uses innovative equipment and machinery to find the cause of your blockage without delay. This includes the latest cordless CCTV cameras which we use during no-dig surveys.

With a complete understanding of the blockage, we recommend the most effective, affordable solution to get your system fully operational again.
