Drain maintenance back on agenda as London returns to the office

ImaLondon drain maintenance Metro Rod


With Covid restrictions continuing to ease and Central London seeing a steady and continuous upturn in the number of employees physically returning to the workplace Metro Rod's drain care work profile is seeing a shift back towards pre-planned maintenance visits.

A pre-planned maintenance programme ensures that highly-used drainage systems receive the necessary attention to maintain them in a free-flowing, effective and hygienic condition.

In London's diverse economic environment Metro Rod service drainage systems of all kinds with examples of pre-planned maintenance regimes including :-

  • CCTV examination and cleaning, using electro-mechanical technology, of internal pipework and vertical soil stacks in high-rise office buildings, hotels and museums within Central London
  • Emptying of car park channel drainage and interceptors outside leisure centres, supermarkets and shopping centres
  • High-pressure water-jetting of underground drainage systems in sports stadiums
  • Grease-trap emptying and maintenance of pump stations in restaurants and bars across Central London

A pre-planned maintenance visit will be scheduled at the time least disruptive for your business. For example attending to an Italian restaurant in Kensington's grease traps at 7am in order to ensure all work completed in advance of that day's lunch service. Or descaling internal soil stacks in an office block at night over 4 consecutive nights in order that the occupants' business is not be interrupted in any way at all.

Pre-planned maintenance is seen as essential by London Facilities Managers and Maintenance Managers in order to prevent, rather than "cure" drainage problems which can be hugely damaging to business continuity. At Metro Rod we repair drainage emergencies 24/7/365 but pre-planned maintenance ensures a calm and trouble-free management of this important part of the workplace environment.
