Brilliant fast and friendly service by Carlo who through his camera survey discovered a collapsed drain. Whilst I rang our builder, Carlo spoke with him on the phone explained the problem, sent pictures of the collapse and the builder agreed to come out the next day and fix the issue causing the blockage. Without Carlo and his swift response by 24hrs drainage, this would not have been possible - highly recommended to use for the future

We have been working with Carlo since he started his private business and prior to this with his previous firm. I am a property manager and can’t always attend issues but we have full trust in Carlo to attend promptly, successfully clear the blockage and leave the site/shower clean and tidy. He goes the extra mile to keep us informed. He always attends within a few hours and has 100% success. We are grateful to have a competent drainage expert on hand to support our business, even on Sundays!

My worst nightmare….. sewage pushing up a manhole cover and covered my front lawn. Call made and problem solved within 3 hours. Carlo was professional, friendly and informative showing me all the issues that caused it identifying collapsed pipes. He had all the right gear for the job and after jetting and checking with a camera left me fully satisfied with the result within the hour of arriving. Would highly recommend.

I have had Carlo's help twice now, with two different drainage problems, and both times he has succeeded whether others had failed. He cleared a blocked bath that the plumber couldn't fix, and also did a fantastic job of clearing out a blocked drainage pipe that was cracked and full of roots but which my previous drainage 'expert' had failed to resolve. He has all the right equipment and skills for the job, but he is also courteous, friendly and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

The Process

The 24hrs Drainage team embarked on a comprehensive cleaning mission at the church in Henley on Thames, executing a meticulous plan to ensure optimal results. Given the historical and structural significance of the church, thorough preparation and stringent safety measures were paramount. The team conducted an initial site assessment to evaluate the condition of the gutters, roofs, and gullies, and to identify any potential hazards, especially considering the considerable height and architectural intricacies of the building.

The cleaning process commenced with the clearing of the church’s gutters. Utilising an advanced vacuum system, the team effectively removed accumulated debris such as leaves, twigs, and dirt. This method proved essential in preventing blockages and ensuring the smooth flow of rainwater. For more stubborn debris, high-pressure water jets were employed to dislodge and wash away obstructions, safeguarding the integrity of the drainage system.

Next, the focus shifted to the roof, which required a combination of manual debris removal and high-pressure cleaning. The team adhered to strict safety protocols, using harnesses and scaffolding to navigate the roof’s steep inclines and fragile tiles. Particular attention was paid to areas prone to moss and algae growth, which were meticulously cleaned to restore the roof’s original condition and prevent potential water damage.

Cleaning the gullies involved a more hands-on approach. The team manually removed debris that had settled in these essential conduits, ensuring that water could efficiently drain away from the building’s foundation. This step was crucial in preventing waterlogging and potential structural damage.

Throughout the process, the team encountered several challenges, including particularly stubborn blockages and areas of the roof that required delicate handling due to their age. Nevertheless, through the use of specialised tools and techniques, these obstacles were effectively overcome.

The results of the cleaning operation were impressive. The church’s gutters, roofs, and gullies were thoroughly cleared and cleaned, significantly enhancing the building’s functionality and aesthetic appeal. The 24hrs Drainage team’s expertise ensured that the church in Henley on Thames was well-prepared to withstand the elements, preserving its historical charm for years to come.
