Tree Root Removal

in Thanet, Ashford, Canterbury & Across Kent

Do you have one or more trees on or near your Kent property? Tree roots cause various issues with homes and workplaces, especially the drainage systems. Condensation on your pipes, and the near-constant flow of water inside them, attracts tree roots. Tiny root hairs easily penetrate the joints found on drainage pipes, as well as cracks and fractures, giving them access to the moisture they need for growth. Once established, these small roots expand inside the pipe. Given time, this leads to a blockage and possible joint failure.

Based in Ramsgate, BP Drains Ltd undertakes tree root removal services in Ashford, Canterbury, Folkestone, Thanet and across Kent.

In most cases, you only become aware of root-related problems when it’s too late. This most commonly presents itself in a slower flow rate followed by a blockage. As such, if you have trees on or around your premises, it’s vital to schedule regular drain maintenance.

These checks help to catch the problem before it develops, limiting the extent of the damage caused.

Whichever type of tree root removal we proceed with, our team will inspect your cleared pipe to assess any damage caused by the root. If there are cracks, fractures or signs of displacement, we recommend having these repaired in a timely manner.

We can usually carry out this work in situ without any excavation. By performing drain lining, we ensure that the roots can’t grow back into the drain again while fixing the pipe’s structural damage too.
