Drain care from Metro Rod Slough : Planned AND emergency

10th June 2019 - in Slough

Drain Care Reading Slough Swindon Van

At Metro Rod Slough we provide a reactive emergency service in the event of any drain care issue, typically involving blocked drains,  in the Slough area In fact we cover not only Slough but the entire Thames Valley from Gerrards Cross and Ascot in the east through Slough, Windsor, Maidenhead, Reading, Henley, Marlow, Newbury and Hungerford to Marlborough and Swindon in the West.

Certainly an issue with  a blocked drain, blocked toilet or other problem with site drainage may seem like a problem which can’t be foreseen and getting the issue resolved quickly and effectively becomes the priority at that point. Thankfully we at Metro Rod are effective at reaching you quickly in the Slough area  and delivering a first time fix in over 80% of cases BUT there is nevertheless sadly still risk of business interruption and loss of productivity when a blocked drain occurs.

Maintenance Managers , Property Managers and Facilities Managers in Reading are increasingly recognising that there is truth in the old adage that PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE and are looking at a planned and structured approach to cleaning and maintaining the drainage system in larger, high usage sites.

Examples of businesses and sites where a planned approach to drain maintenance can pay dividends in terms of ensuring business continuity are :

  • Hotels
  • Restaurants
  • Office blocks
  • Leisure facilities
  • Hospitals and care homes
  • Food processing sites
  • Public buildings (museum’s , theatres etc)

The most helpful aspect of pre-planned maintenance from Metro Rod Slough is that it helps prevent issues with your drains before they arises hence why it can also be known as ‘Preventative Maintenance’.

Sites involving food-processing and catering are prone to build up of fat, oil and grease in pipes which, unless regularly cleared, will inevitably cause blockages and disruption. Similarly unless pipes serving high usage toilets and urinals are regularly cleaned they will experience build-up of uric-scale deposits which can drastically reduce the effectiveness of drains on site. Take a look at the extent of the scale build up on a recent maintenance clean undertaken by Metro Rod at an office site which had not seen drain maintenance carried out for some time…in this instance the site experienced highly disruptive flooding and escape of foul waste :

Overflowing Manholes cleared in Shrewsbury

7th June 2019 - in Mid-Wales, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, Telford

We have received a superb 5 star review from a customer based in Shrewsbury, We were called out to an overflowing Manhole only to find there were 2. Our Engineer high pressure water jetted both Manholes clear in which he found a large lump of concrete which was almost certainly the reason these Manholes are backing up. He then washed them clean to which the customer left us this review.

blocked drain resolved

7th June 2019

I recently had to call Metrorod after a blocked drainage system. The guys were very helpful providing me with a report and CCTV footage. They explained the problem very clearly and quickly suggested a fix. The solution was quick and far less expensive than I had anticipated. Their engineer Haydn did a very thorough job and answered all my questions as he worked. I would recommend them.

Blocked Drain leads to 5 star review.

6th June 2019 - in Mid-Wales, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, Telford

We have recently attended a callout in Guilsfield, Powys. The owner had called in with a Blocked Drain causing problems at his property. Our engineer high water pressure jetted up towards the Blockage and cleared it. He then had a looksee with his camera and found a large dip in the pipework which was holding a considerable amount of water and further down he found and large displaced joint in the Drainage system. The owner was able to contact his insurance and get the issue resolved. He left this brilliant review.

Impressed with the service supplied today. From the original phone call to finish with in half a day. Visiting engineer Tom Emberton was very professional. He explained at all times what he was doing and worked in an efficient manor. No Mess. Would recommend.”

Blocked Drains are something we deal with on a daily basis. If you have any issues regarding a Blockage please call us on 01938554050 or E-mail us on [email protected]
