Metro Rod Birmingham has been working throughout lockdown helping people with their drainage problems, and now is the time, as we begin come out of lockdown, that businesses are beginning to think about their plans for reopening. 

If you are have a business that is starting to plan its reopening then there are a few things you have to think about. One of those should be having your drainage system looked over, as elements of it can start to deteriorate when suddenly abandoned for a short period of time. 

Some signs that you may have a problem may include bad smells, more rodent activity than normal and inadequate performance. If this is the case then it is a good idea to get in touch with us so that we can find the problem and fix it before it gets much worse. 

To help businesses hit the ground running we have come up with two easy options that Metro Rod can carry out while the building remains empty to check the condition of your drainage system. 

    • The first is an interim visit to test and flush through the existing underground drainage system and inspect the wet wells and then report on their condition.
    • The second is a full site clean including the replacement of perished seals, emptying pump chambers and grease chambers and a CCTV inspection of the underground pipework to check for blockages and damage. 

Our normal services have been continuing uninterrupted throughout lockdown, helping homes and the key businesses drains flowing. Here are some of the other problems we have been helping people with: a build up of debris in pipes, coffee granules, grease, fat and pieces of food in pipes, hair and shower scum.As well as stagnant water in toilet cisterns and the build up of uric scale in the pipework.

We expect that these services, along with our normal range of services will be high in demand as businesses across the Birmingham area start to reopen, so if you think you would benefit from having your drains inspected then please get in contact with us.
