Drain care support as London restaurants and pubs reopen

Pub Meal London Drain Care

Drain care to support London's thriving restaurant and pub scene has always been an important part of our business here at Metro Rod Central London. The Corona Virus pandemic has hit the sector hard, with outlets closed since the last week in March 2020 so there was much relief on June 24th when the Prime Minister cleared the way for reopening from July 4th onwards and the government issued relevant guidance online.

Our work in restaurants and pubs covers our full range of services , from clearing a single blocked drain , toilet or sink to carrying out extensive maintenance cleans, CCTV survey and structural repairs.

Gradual accumulation of at, oil and grease within pipework is a common cause of blocked drains in catering sites and even has it’s own acronym in the drainage industry…..FOG. In recent years giant fatbergs found in the London sewer network have received widespread media coverage and this has highlighted the potential problem FOG can cause if drains are not regularly cleaned.

With restaurants and pubs closed for over 3 months it will be vital to ensure that site drainage systems are clear and free-flowing as part of preparation for reopening.

A blocked drain, blocked toilets or blocked sink can all have calamitous impact on a restaurant or hospitality business and we regularly see closures and loss of income resulting from blockages which lead to emergency call-outs.
