Drain Doctor Franchisee Introduces a Novel New Service

Our UK counterpart, Drain Doctor, had a franchise recently introduce a new service for his customers. Jimmy Smith, owner of the Glasgow North Drain Doctor, decided to solve a citywide problem of rats getting in to the sewer. His team is able to install a special flap in drains to keep them out! What a fabulous idea. "The Ratflap is installed in a strategic location that creates an impenetrable barrier that prevents rats getting into properties via the sewer.

Once installed the Ratflap does not disrupt the normal operation of the sewer. The Ratflap is held in place by the friction that it exerts on the inside of the pipe. For deeper drains extension poles are available to create a perfect fit." Solving a rat problem once they are in the walls of a building can be problematic. This creation is a cost-effective way of keeping rats out of the pipes, and ultimately the home. "There is definitely a need for a product like this, not just in large cities like Glasgow but in rural areas as well.

We are rolling this out to our own customers. At the moment we are testing the water but if there is sufficient interest I hope the whole Drain Doctor network would take it on as an additional service nationally," said Jimmy. Installation of this invention is quick and easy and will save many home and business owners the headache of dealing with rodents. Here's wishing you all a world-class day!
