Metro Rod Cumbria has been working non-stop through lockdown as designated key-workers and now the time has come for you to start reopening your businesses. 

Covid 19 Safe Visit Graphic

With the government now easing down lockdown, businesses are starting to make plans for reopening, and there are a few things you’ll have to think about in order to make this go as smoothly as possible. One key element that is sometimes overlooked as ‘out of sight, out of mind’  are a property’s drains. Over a significant period of time, such as lockdown, a property’s drains can start to deteriorate and become damaged if suddenly left unused. 


There are a few tell tale signs that there might be something wrong with your drains such as, unpleasant smells, increase in rodent activity, and poor performance (toilet not flushing, water not draining in the sink). If you find yourself with any of these problems then get in contact with metro Rod Cumbria today and we would be happy to assist you.

To further help businesses reopen smoothly we are providing two options in which we can assess your businesses drains before reopening to ensure you can continue smoothly without any additional complications. 

  1. The first option is a visit to the site to test and flush through the existing underground drainage system to check for any blockages and inspect the wet wells and then report on the overall condition. 
  2. The second option is a full site clean including the replacement of perished and damaged seals, emptying pump chambers and grease chambers, as well as a CCTV Survey of the pipework to check for any blockages, damage and potential problems.


Our normal services have been continuing throughout lockdown, helping homes, businesses and hospitals to keep their drains flowing and we are dedicated to continuing this work as the country begins to get back to normal. 

We expect these services to be in high demand in the Cumbria area so if you think you would benefit from us taking a look at your drainage system to help ensure a smooth reopening then let as know using the contact information below.
