Block Urinal Cleaning Service

Blocked and overflowing urinals can cause your business disruption, whether in your employee facilities or a customer washroom. Aside from becoming a potential hygiene risk and source of bad odour, a blockage within the pipework and plumbing can be costly and time consuming to repair if left to build up.  At Rentokil Specialist Hygiene we are experts in specialist cleaning and disinfection, offering a blocked urinal cleaning service and maintenance program to help you reduce and prevent blockages.

What are the Causes of a Blocked Urinal?

Blockages in urinals are caused by the build up of scale in the urinal traps, drains or waste pipe work. This is produced by the deposition of dissolved salts that are present either alone in the water supply such as limescale or in combination with uric scale and salts.

Limescale is sparingly soluble in water and builds up on the exposed surfaces of urinals as the flush water evaporates. This deposition can be increased by the addition of warm urine. Further to the build up of limescale, uric salts form encrustations on the toilet and urinal surfaces and can cause additional blockages.

What are Signs of an Urinal Blockage?

  • Bad Smell - Build up of uric acid is a common cause for a bad odour in the washroom

  • Slow draining urinals - can be an early warning sign that a blockage within the pipework is developing, as a blockage reduces the bore of the pipe, which then reduces the flow of what can be drained away.

  • A clogged urinal drain - can be the result of a uric acid build up and/ or a blockage is near the entrance of the pipe.

  • Urinal overflow - can happen when the blockage is either within the pipework or urinal drain is more severe and completely blocks the flow.

Our Blocked Urinal Cleaning Service

Our RSPH (Royal Society for Public Health) accredited technicians use an electro-mechanical flexible steel coring rod that dislodges and removes uric scale build up from inside the primary pipework through to the soil stack. The service also cleans and removes any scale build up from the urinal waste trap, helping to ensure the whole urinal drainage system is blockage free. We can also deep clean the cistern to remove stains.

We can provide a callout out service in the event of a blocked urinal as well as preventative maintenance program which includes planned visits on a regular basis to reduce the risk of blockages occurring.
