Drainage Surveys Pollution Survey

Maintaining the functionality and integrity of drainage systems is essential for residential, commercial and industrial properties. Drainage surveys offer a proactive approach to identifying issues before they escalate into costly repairs. In this blog, we explore the benefits of instructing a drainage survey.

Early detection of problems

Drainage surveys use technology, such as CCTV, to inspect underground pipes and drainage networks comprehensively. By identifying blockages, leaks, or structural weaknesses, property owners can address issues promptly, mitigating the risk of more significant (and costly) problems arising. 


Cost-effective maintenance

Regular drainage surveys enable property owners to adopt a proactive maintenance strategy, which is more cost-effective than reactive repairs, allowing for potential issues to be identified and addressed before they turn into more serious issues, which may require more invasive remediation.


Prevent structural damage

Blocked or damaged drainage systems can lead to water accumulation around foundations, leading to potential soil erosion, which can compromise the structural integrity of buildings. Drainage surveys help prevent such scenarios by identifying drainage issues that could threaten the property’s stability, thus safeguarding its long-term structural health.


Enhanced saleability

Maintaining a well-functioning drainage system can enhance the saleability of your home or commercial property. Potential buyers or tenants are more likely to be attracted to properties with documented evidence of regular drainage inspections and maintenance.


Environmental protection

Faulty drainage systems can result in sewage leaks or contaminant discharge, which pose serious environmental hazards. Drainage surveys aid in identifying potential environmental risks, allowing property owners to take corrective action to prevent pollution and protect surrounding ecosystems.


Peace of mind

Ultimately, the most invaluable benefit of drainage surveys is the peace of mind they offer to property owners. Knowing that the drainage system is regularly inspected and maintained reduces anxiety about unexpected and costly drainage failures.
