Drains are the perfect way for silverfish to enter your home as they are attracted to moisture and survive in dark and damp locations including drains, bathtubs, sinks and showers. As silverfish use drainage systems to live and breed, they can cause leaky pipes and blocked drains in your property.
Removing Silverfish From Broken And Leaky Pipes
Broken and leaky pipes are common breeding grounds for silverfish in your home. We recommend fixing any broken pipes that you can easily identify by eye. For harder to see areas, we recommend having a CCTV Drain Survey to highlight any defects in your pipework including cracks, leaks and blockages.

Removing Silverfish From Blocked Drains
Blocked drains are another area you may find silverish. The most effective way to remove them in drains is to use high pressure water jetting. Using this method can remove both the silverfish and any other debris or excess dirt built up, leaving your drains clean and clear of blockages.
