    Toilet and Sink Unblocking London

    Let’s agree on one point. None of us wants any poor floating around on our toilet floor. Not only is it extremely unhygienic to let the drainage flow out, but it also causes an unpleasant odour which makes your washroom and its surroundings almost a no-go area.

    Your drainage can be blocked due to a number of reasons. Sometimes it happens due to dirt accumulation in the water pathway while in other cases, it might be your child’s favorite Lego toy blocking the drainage. In any case, if you are a skilled DIY, unblocking it won’t be a thing. (You can check out our How to unblock your toilet guide for helpful information in this regard) However, if you still aren’t able to do it, its time to consult a professional to avoid further complications.

    Just in case you are looking or one, Serviceteam offers repairs, and other replacement, maintenance, services including Gutter repairing, Saniflo Macerator repairing, and much more all across London at the best prices.

Not only that but we also have a very friendly staff available 24/7 at your service. Call us now on 020 3538 706 and our workers will be at your doorsteps…

    If we are unable to clear your blockage by completing a ‘standard unblock’ mechanical equipment may be required. More obstinate blockages require the use of high powered mechanical and jetting equipment, this is called a ‘machine unblock’.


    How do you charge?

    What will it cost?

    • Standard unblock - Prices start from £81 + Vat (£98) depending on the urgency and date of your appointment.
    • Machine unblock - Prices come with a £60 + Vat surcharge, which is payable only when the blockage is cleared.
    • For deeper routed blockages that neither a standard nor machine unblock have been able to fix we will provide you with a further works quote to resolve.
    • These prices do not include parts and we would quote you for work upfront, so you know exactly how much you’ll pay from the outset.
    • For more information about Unblock please contact our office to speak to one of our repair advisors.

    Reasons for Toilet blockage

    You must have heard “prevention is better than cure”. With this in mind, it’s necessary to prevent anything that can possibly stand responsible for toilet blockages to avoid any repeats in the future. So, to avoid self-induced blockages here’s something you need to know…

    Your toilet might be old

    One of the main reasons for toilet blockage is using an “aged toilet”. Since the functionality of toilets declines over time due to debris build-up, the waste does not flush-off completely and accumulates in certain areas, blocking the drainage flow. Moreover, some of our fellows reduce the “fill” level below recommended, which consequently lowers the water force than the required limits. Adding to that if you notice your loo not functioning properly with each flush, Consider replacing it.

    Use of Non-flushable Items

    We all know that a toilet is designed to dispose of only three things. Paper, wee, and poo. Anything apart from these can cause complications. Here are they:

  • Food scraps
  • Grease/fat/ghee etc.
  • Cardboards
  • Cotton Buds
  • Cigarette buds
  • Cosmetic wipes
  • Although there are many more things responsible for toilet blockage, the aforementioned ones were quite common ones. As for kids, they will put anything in the toilet. Make sure nothing of the above reaches your toilet if you want it to work properly for longer.

    Toilet trap

    You may well know what a toilet trap is. At one hand where it prevents any dirt, smelly sewerage entering your home, its blockage will give you headaches in the form of drain overflow. This is mainly caused due to the accumulation of the above-mentioned materials. Just make sure you put nothing that can block it.

    Soil Stack Vent is Blocked

    Just in case you don’t know, the soil stack is a pipe-like opening in your plumbing system that provides a pathway for the unpleasant smell to be released in the atmosphere. However, it also playstyle in maintaining the internal atmospheric pressure. Since it can be clogged over time with certain things like leaves etc, it’s important to clean it periodically to ensure proper drainage. You can consult a serviceteam professional to do this task for you…
