Do you suspect you have a rodent problem? Don’t worry – we are here to help! Total Drain Cleaning provides Rodent Investigation Services. Wondering why a drain company provides rodent services? That is a very good question.
RAT INFESTATIONS START IN DRAINS
We provide rodent control because rats utilse damage to drains in order to gain access to properties. Rats live in sewers. However, due to food supply issues, they tend to leave the sewers and access domestic drainage systems. And from there, the next step is your house! Rats exit the drainage system one of two ways – by utilising existing breaks within the pipes. Or by breaking the pipes themselve. Rats have sharp teeth that they need to fill down. They do this by gnawing on the pipe. Therefore killing two birds with one stone.
HOW CAN I STOP RATS COMING INTO MY HOUSE FROM THE DRAINS?
Calling a professional drain company that specialises in rodent investigation services is the only way to truly stop rats using your drains to infest your property. Total Drain Cleaning are experts at preventing rodent infestations via the drains. We use specialised CCTV equipment. This allows us to check all your hard-to-reach pipework and find where the rat enters and exits the drains.
Once the damaged pipe has been located, it will need repairing. Once the repair has been carried out, we then recommend installing a Rat Flap within the drain to be able to prevent rats from entering the drains at any further time.

WHAT ARE THE SIGNS OF A RATS IN DRAINS?
The main warning signs associated with having rats in are similar to the signs of having a blocked drain. So unpleasant odours coming from the drain, slow draining water, gurgling sounds, and raised water levels. Additionally, look for burrow holes in the ground around the drains.
WHAT IS A RAT FLAP?
A Rat Flap is a non-return valve that blocks the rats from leaving the sewer and entering a properties drainage system. It is inserted along the main sewer line and works by preventing the rodents access to a properties waste line. Ultimately cutting off their access to a property.
