“Knowing that the gutters are thoroughly cleaned out is very reassuring. We’ve had such a lot of rain lately and haven’t had any overflow problems since Drain Doctor came to clean them. Thank you.” 

Mr. C. – Portsmouth

We were recently contacted by a new customer in the Southsea area of Portsmouth who had problems with the guttering at the back of his house. Recent heavy rainfall had proved too much for the gutters to cope with and Mr. C. was concerned about the volume of rainwater that was running down the outside of the building each time there was a storm.

On arrival at the property, the Drain Doctor Southampton and Portsmouth technician inspected the gutters all around the property using Guttervac, a high-powered vacuum which is fitted with a telescopic boom that can reach heights of up to 12m.

The boom is also fitted with a CCTV camera and relays images back to the ground so that issues can be identified without the need for ladders or scaffolding.

Significant amounts of tree debris were found to be blocking the gutters and downspouts. Our technician cleared all sections of guttering around the property but found that there was still a problem within a downpipe. This was jetted clean using a high-pressure water jet and the gutters were tested to check they were working properly.
