With the leaves falling, autumn is here which means Halloween is just around the corner!

Falling leaves can mean blocked drains and gutters which is where Metro Rod Bedford, your local drainage experts, can help. If you find you have a blocked drain or gutter, we have some of the fastest response times in the industry so you can count on us to be with you, solving your problem, before you can say 'trick or treat'!  When you call us, your local branch of Metro Rod, you get the friendly, personal service you'd expect from a small business, supported by the reassurance that we part of a national brand, and the experts in our field.

If you leave fallen leaves and debris in your gutters, over time this can cause serious problems for your business or home. So now could be the time to call Metro Rod. Not only do we clear blocked drains and carry out CCTV surveys, we also clear gutters using our Metro Vac system!

We have developed the innovative Metro Vac system uses long poles that can reach up to 10 metres high to clean gutters from ground level; this removes the need for expensive scaffolding.


Why use Metro Vac?

  • Cost effective – Reduces the requirement for expensive access equipment
  • No Mess – sucks gutters clean using wet and dry vacuum
  • Perfect for hard to reach areas such as over atriums
  • Reduces risk – minimises the need to work at height
  • Precision cleaning – on-board cameras operated by skilled and professional engineers

For further information about this fantastic system click here.


As we know, autumn brings with it Halloween, which means fun things to do for children and adults alike!  We've found a few of the best local Halloween activities for you and listed them here so you can relax and let Metro Rod Bedford deal with your blocked drains whilst you get spooky!
