With the plans for exiting lockdown underway businesses are getting ready to reopen and Metro Rod Bristol are ready to help.

London drain maintenance pre opening

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. 

If you are 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. These problems can mothball into serious problems when left unattended. We expect to be dealing with a range of problems including 

  • 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

When you first go back to your business there are some telling signs that your drains might not be in full working condition, these could include:

  • Bad smells 
  • Increase in rodent activity
  • Inadequate performance 

If this is the case for your property we would recommend getting in contact with Metro Rod Bristol, 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. We can carry out these checks while your business is still empty so you know everything will be working the day you reopen.
