As the government starts to enact its plan for leaving lockdown, businesses will be starting to plan their reopening, and Metro Rod should be a part of this.

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. 

Some signs that you may have a problem may include bad smells, more rodent activity than normal and inadequate performance. If this is the case then it is a good idea to get in touch with us so that we can find the problem and fix it before it gets much worse. 

Our normal services have been continuing uninterrupted throughout lockdown, helping homes and the key businesses drains flowing. Some of the other problems we have been helping people with include: 

  • Build up of debris in pipes
  • Coffee granules
  • Grease, fat and pieces of food in pipes
  • Hair and shower scum
  • Stagnant water in toilet cisterns 
  • Build up of uric scale in the pipework

To help businesses hit the ground running we have two easy options that Metro Rod can carry out while the building remains empty to check the condition of your drainage system. 

    • The first is an interim visit to test and flush through the existing underground drainage system and inspect the wet wells and then report on their condition.
    • The second is a full site clean including the replacement of perished seals, emptying pump chambers and grease chambers and a CCTV inspection of the underground pipework to check for blockages and damage. 

The last thing you want once you’ve finally been allowed to reopen your business is to be met with drainage problems. You don’t want to have to be worried about broken toilets, leaking pipes and other problems when your business is back up and running. To make sure your plans aren’t spoilt get in contact with Metro Rod Newcastle today to help plan your reopening.
