Next time you pour things down the kitchen sink, think about what is actually going down the drain hole and where it goes next.
We say this because a new blocked drain call out this week was because of sweetcorn. There were other bits and pieces down there but primarily, it was a blocked drain because of sweetcorn.
We received a call from a customer in Shawlands in the South Side of Glasgow who had a blocked drain in their tenement flat. What sounded like a tasty pasta dish with sweetcorn had backfired because they had let too many pieces of sweetcorn slip down the drain when they were finished washing up after the meal.
A drain pipe can be lined with all sorts of muck if you do not take care of your homes drainage system. And in this particular drain pipe, enough pieces of sweetcorn got caught to form a damn in the pipe.
You might think – why didn’t they just use a plunger to unblock it? – well they did. But a plunger only has so much force and power. They are fine for blockages that occur near the beginning of a drain pipe but this was a blockage further down.
And that is why the Shawlands customer called us. They knew that they needed a blocked drain expert to fix the issue.
Our friendly call center team booked in a time that suited the customer and one of the JSL Drainage team turned up at the exact time we had promised. We inspected the issue, quoted the price and got to work fixing the issue.
While some drainage companies in Glasgow will promise emergency call out response times, and others will promise 24 hour service. Our unique selling point is and always has been to offer a reliable, honest and fair service to our customers because we truly believe that this is what our customers want. To many times, customers across Glasgow have been let down by trademan who promise the world then don’t turn up. Not us!
