Drains cleared fast – customer review

Here’s a recent review from a London City Drains customer:

“I recently called out City Drains and was pleasantly surprised at the speed in which they responded, 21 minutes!

Furthermore, they demonstrated a professional attitude at all times and were very thorough in their work. At the end of the jet clean they went so far as to carry out a cctv survey of the drain, free of charge! just to make sure the job was completely done.

Their rates are fair and I have received a more than adequate service. Well done boys!”

The Simpsons Syndrome – advice from London City Drains

It’s funny how people seem to make the same mistake over and over and usually never learn first time round. Animals do, and we are supposed to be the logical ones?

Sometimes you come across a job which by right could be put right first time round. But its funny how, because of peoples perception of tradesmen, and I must admit, also from an economical point of view, people aren’t willing to spend that bit extra to correct a problem with a permanent solution.

Instead, they choose to call you out again and again and again for the same problem. In the end they think that you’re not doing the job correctly and choose to call somebody else who may rip them off or if they are lucky have the problem corrected once and for all by following the recommendations that you gave them to begin with.

What is the problem with this scenario?
Well let’s begin with an economical point of view.

For example: An engineer gets called to an emergency blockage. The blockage is cleared as fast as possible. The recommendation given is to have the line jet cleaned otherwise your drain will re-block in no time at all. It involves 1 extra hour of work. The customer decides not to go along with the recommendation and two months later calls you out again. Again you clear the blockage as quickly as possible and you charge the customer again as the recommendation wasn’t followed. This happens several times throughout the year. By the end of the year, the customer has paid for the same job 4 or maybe 5 times!

If they had followed your recommendation to begin with, he/she would not have had to call you out several times and they would have saved a lot of money on emergency call outs. You don’t have to be smart to work that one out.

Let us not forget also the calling out of the other contractor; I wonder how much he charged to get the job done? The same or more than if they had gone through the contractor’s original recommendation when it was first made, that’s for sure.

This brings me to the second problem scenario. And that is the false and unfair perception by the customer of the first contractor, who only tried to help by giving you the best advice to begin with and ended up being the bad guy. All because again the recommendation wasn’t followed through.

The moral of the story: London City Drains is here to help you help yourselves.
Listen to our advice and act on it, you wont regret it!

City Drains Drain Cleaning Service in London

Most of London’s drains and drain pipes are antiquated and were built during or just after the Great Victorian period.

Drain cleaning in London
In most of these sewers, an accumulation of over one hundred years has resulted, more often than not the pipes find themselves full of scale, silt, debris and other foreign objects which restrict the flow of the drains and eventually lead to large build ups and more often than not, recurring blockages.

In most instances, unblocking London’s drains aren’t sufficient. Because the blockage is cleared, doesn’t mean that the underlying problem has been dealt with. Having to return to clear a blockage again in a few months time, or in some cases weeks or days, can be a very costly ordeal for the customer.

London City Drains highly recommends having your drain and drain pipe cleaned using one of their high pressure jet cleaning machines. In this way, restoring the sewer pipe back to its former glory and ensuring a perfect and odourless flowing drain for many years to come, as well as peace of mind.
