FROM £139.00 + VAT
If you are or ever have suffered from a blocked drainage system, you’ll be all too familiar with the foul smells and stress of trying to find a professional plumbing service that will help you solve the problem as quickly as possible without breaking the bank.


Here at Total Home Solutions, we understand the feelings of urgency that comes with a blocked drain which is why we have placed you and your needs at the forefront of our services.


When faced with a blocked drain, the traditional method of digging a trench to uncover the pipeline does not only damage your land and property, but it’s also unfairly expensive and takes a lot of time to complete professionally.


With this in mind, we provide the much-needed service of Drain Moling, a service which unblocks your previously blocked pipelines without the need for expensive excavation, allowing for fast, cost-effective results.

Why Is My Drain Blocked In The First Place?

Drain blockages can be caused by any number of external or internal factors. These include;

  • Internal pipe build up of leaves or tree roots
  • Paper towels or sanitary products that take long periods of time to decompose
  • Build ups of hair from sinks in the property
  • Wipes and tissues that have been discarded into your waste system
  • Build ups of fats and grease, usually from cooking applicants
  • In extreme cases, pipe collapses or damage and cause blockages

How To You Complete A Drain Moling Job?

When you have requested our services, one of the fully trained, highly qualified technicians will arrive at your property and begin to access the situation. Once the cause and location of the blockage have been established, our expert will use an advanced tool called a drain mole.


This tool is able to hammer through and displace soil and ground material until the location of the blockage is reached. This enables us to access a specific part of the pipeline, without having to dig a trench that would damage your property or hire expensive trenching-related machinery.


The work carried out creates extremely minimal amounts of damage as the device is completely controlled by the technician, who is fully trained and qualified to use the tool professionally and can deliver the best results.


Once the moling work has been carried out, our technician then has access to a smooth, precise hole in the ground, allowing for easy, clean access to the pipeline which assists in installing the new pipe with much-needed ease and speed.

Can I Claim The Work Back On My Home Insurance Policy?

Absolutely! Typical homeowner insurance policies cover all the costs of fixing the problem with your home, including drainage problems that require drain moling solutions.


Although polices can vary from company to company, the majority of polices will cover the costs of repairing or replacing interior plumbing networks.


It may be worth checking with your insurance provider prior just to make sure.


If you are living in a rented property, in most cases, the landlord will be responsible for fulfilling the general maintenance costs and services.


As with most contracts, this solely depends on your individual contract and there is always the possibility that drainage systems may not be covered.


Before starting work, we highly recommend you either contact your landlord or refer to your tenant’s agreement to see what your individual terms and conditions are.

Do I Need Really Need My Blocked Drains Fixed?

In truth, yes you do. A blocked drain may sound like a simple problem that could be fixed anytime but the problems really start when issues arise relating to the blocked pipeline.


This can include a dramatic increase in bad smells that can cause health issues such as headaches, mood swings, irritability and in extreme cases, can also be life-threatening.


These drainage issues can not only damage your health, they can also damage your property. Leaking drainage pipes, especially in internal plumbing systems, can result in damp problems spreading throughout your walls which can result in structural damage and mould problems.
