As we get closer to ending lockdown, businesses will start to think about the steps for reopening, drains are crucial to this so you’ll need Metro Rod Northampton. 

Metro Rod Reopening Graphic

Our excellent team of engineers have been working tirelessly over the past year to keep your drains running smoothly. After a long year we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel and life going back to normal. For many businesses this will mean finally being allowed to reopen after a tough year of being made to close down. 

If you own a business in the Northampton area, we know there will be a lot of planning going into how you chose to reopen whilst bearing in mind the restrictions that might be in place. One of the things you should not neglect to think about are your property’s drains. Elements of a drainage system can start to deteriorate when a property is left unused for a prolonged period of time. The problems that may arise can steadily worsen as time goes on, especially once the drains are being used again. 

Problems you may find within your business may include: 

  • Build-up of debris in pipework and traps, including fats, oils and grease (FOG), coffee granules, hair and soap scum
  • Grease traps containing food and/or FOG debris
  • Pump chambers containing foul waste, stagnant water and/or FOG debris
  • Stagnant water in toilet cisterns and the build-up of uric scale in the primary pipework

There are some signs that you should be on the look out for when you first go back to your business property, these could include: 

  • Bad smells 
  • Increase in rodent activity
  • Inadequate performance 

Services we are offering:

If this is the case for your property we would recommend getting in contact with Metro Rod Northampton, as we can help get to the bottom of your problem and find a solution. Metro Rod are recommending an interim visit of your business to test and flush through the underground drainage system to make sure nothing is blocking or restricting the flow of water. We will also inspect the wet wells and report on their condition. This, along with a full site clean, including the replacement of perished seals and emptying pump and grease chambers will help ensure that everything is in working order for your return.
