Rats and other such vermin are common pests that are considered to be a nuisance and are capable of damaging many properties as well as transmitting various diseases to pets and humans. Their chewing habits are destructive, and their dirty behaviour can endanger the structure of your buildings. However, rats are secretive; they are not visible to humans when populations are low in their environment. Therefore, it can be difficult to confirm an infestation.
Outside drains and gullies serve an important function within a property, they are responsible for the disposal of waste and other sewerage from the property to a main sewer but the maintenance of these are often neglected by home owners. The repercussions of this neglect usually show itself in the form of a blockage or foul smells permeating the area.
There are various reasons why a kitchen sink may get blocked but the main reason is the carelessness people have when it comes to throwing stuff down the sink, from left over food to oil and grease; thinking some soap and hot water will help ease them down the pipes. Over time, these congeal and start to restrict the flow of the pipe; it will start with the sink not draining as fast as it used to, until gradually it doesn’t drain at all.
Drains are necessary to all residential and commercial properties; each property has pipework running through or around its boundary. These pipe work carry raw sewerage or surface water which discharge to dedicated points, some drainage systems in properties are shared, and vast numbers of properties run into the drainage network; these types of pipework require regular maintenance and inspection to ensure the pipes are free flowing. The sewerage system; is often overlooked by property owners both old and new but it still requires regular maintenance to prevent the drainage and sewer pipes from deteriorating. Read More

With its multi-cleaning water treatment facility, London’s drainage system is now an example to the world. However, the history of London sewerage is far from anything spectacular.
Maps codify the miracle of existence, “Nicholas Crane.” Modern sewerage and drainage system is the representation of civilised society. The ruins of the Indus valley civilisation in Asia shows the sign of structured sanitation. The Indus Valley city of Lothal in 2350 BC had toilets in every home with brick work covered sewers. It is the significance of Indus valley that it contained atavistic world’s most sophisticated sewage system. Now due to the sewers covered designs it present a problem with finding its exact location for maintenance purposes. To solve this issue, we use maps.
What is the London sewerage system? Well basically it is a complex network of pipe works that serves every single property within the London area. The London sewer system underwent a multitude of changes from the late 19th century. John Bazalgette designed the modern sewers that are still in use today but due to the expansion that London has underwent through the years, the system is having trouble coping with the additional waste water of 21st century London.
Drain problems and blockages can prove costly for many bricks and mortar businesses, particularly for food and beverage outlets, like cafes and restaurants.
