At Drain 247, we offer two types of culvert services; one-off culvert inspections and cleaning services or a regular culvert maintenance plan. Culvert cleaning is the process of removing debris and blockages using high powered water jetting equipment and vacuum tankers units to tackle culverts of all sizes. Culverts come in many shapes and sizes and they carry surface water through obstructions, roads, railways, sides of buildings, and many commercial and domestic properties.
Regular inspection and cleaning of culverts is critical to keeping surface water flowing away freely and reducing the risk of flooding to residential, commercial, industrial properties, the environment and wildlife that are located nearby culverts. It’s vital that culvert maintenance is part of your checklist.

We are specialists in unblocking, cleaning and inspecting culverts in London and the surrounding areas. Our fleet of tankers is capable of tackling both small and large culverts using the latest cleaning equipment and proven methodologies. Our experienced engineers are exceptionally capable of investigating potential culvert problems and providing remediation solutions.
Culverts can easily become blocked with obstructions, particularly following a period of heavy rainfall or storms. With the UK recording higher levels of rainfall, maintaining culverts and making sure that preventative maintenance is in place is now more important than ever. Reducing the environmental impact of a blocked or damaged culvert helps to prevent flooding and other potential risks to public roads, railways, and trails.
As culverts are designed and built to carry water through roadways, pathways, railways, and other similar infrastructures, there are risks of blockages due to build-ups of foreign objects and substances that might get washed down. Although blocked culverts can be caused by many things, Drain 247 has the expertise and the right cleaning equipment to resolve these culvert problems without causing disruption.
Utilising a combination of CCTV drain surveys and drain jetting equipment, our engineers provide an effective culvert inspection service that enables us to thoroughly inspect every inch of a culvert. If any issues are detected within, such as a build-up of foreign substances, we can then use our high-powered drain jetting tools to break down the build-up and restore the culvert back to good conditions.

You can think of a culvert as a large open trench or tunnel. While regular properties will have intricate pipe systems for the disposal of liquids, structures such as roads and railways will frequently encounter larger bodies of water. This is where a culvert can help.
One of the main benefits of a culvert is that it allows water to flow freely and structures to be built near/on large quantities of water. Identifying a culvert is relatively simple as they appear as large, cylindrical, partially-submerged tunnels and will frequently have water flowing through them.
In most cases, a culvert will naturally fill up with weeds, grass, debris, and other materials as it has water flowing through it.
The amount of water that a culvert faces plays a large part in how frequently culvert cleaning should be carried out. Even if your culvert shows no signs of damage, you may wish to get it cleaned once or twice a year to prevent a build-up of plant life which could cause a blockage in the long term. Of course, if you notice that your culvert isn’t properly draining you should contact an expert right away.
Culvert inspections should be conducted on a regular basis to ensure that they are clear of any obstructions. Additionally, regular maintenance such as cleaning out leaves and other debris can help prevent culverts from becoming clogged.
If a culvert does become clogged, it is important to clear the obstruction as soon as possible to prevent flooding and other damage. Culvert cleaning can be done with a variety of methods, depending on the size and type of obstruction.
With proper inspections and maintenance, culverts can be kept clear and functioning properly.
