Rats, mice, rodent and vermin drain problems
Rats will use drains just like ‘Londoners use the Tube’ simply to travel from A to B to feed and nest and they love damaged or redundant drainage systems which can allow vermin to enter properties.
If you have a rodent/vermin infestation that your rodent/vermin contractor cannot control, this may be because of a drainage issue. We will find the defects and access points the rat may be using. We will offer you an appropriate solution be it drain repair or the installation of a WRc tested and certified 'Anti Vermin / Non-Return Valve'.
What do our Anti Vermin/Non-Return Drain Valves do?
- Stops rats and other vermin from entering homes. In effect by fitting a stainless-steel flap, that acts as a one way swinging door allowing waste out but nothing back in.
- The rubber seal prevents noxious fumes and smells from entering properties.
- The flap has an inbuilt stainless steel plate to stop rodents biting through, providing efficient pest control.
- The valve is completely re-usable during any drain cleaning and drain maintenance purposes fully removal and re-usable.
- Stops backflow of effluent from a blocked main sewer flooding into your property back through the drainage system.
- The clever design means the flow of waste is increased when passing through the valve; reducing blockages.
