Pre-planned maintenance:  Because we don’t only want to visit you when you’re having a a bad day!

Here at Metro Rod we know that sometimes the worst can happen an chaos can in-sue and there's just nothing that can be done about it.  However there are occasions where that chaos could have been easily avoided.   That's where pre-planned maintenance programmes come in.

Drains are a tricky one because you don't see them, you forget they're there until something awful happens.  You look after your place of work, you have the offices cleaned every evening, the electrics and internet checked and the boiler and heating systems serviced yearly.  You do these checks because they are a necessity to keep your business in perfect working order.  Without electric and internet the business would fail,  The heating stops working and the working environment becomes less productive as your workers struggle through the day,  a gas leak could shut your whole operation down.  So what about your drainage?

It's a problem you didn't know you had, one that you didn't even think of until a foul odour enters your office.  First from the toilets, then the sinks and all of a sudden you have no toilet or cleaning facilities.  With this in mind your business is in a critical state those who can work from home do so but that's only half your work force causing productivity to grind to a halt. Blocked internal chambers can overflow when heavy rain falls causing major flooding and your main servers to go down  Your office is now inhabitable and completely in-effective.

It is more than likely you have a blockage which has now got so severe that sight facilities cannot be used.  Blockages occur for a variety of reasons; roots, structural defects and scale in the drain to name a few.   The problem has now got to a level that our jetting equipment will not go through it!  We now need to bring in our Combination Vacuum Tanker to clear the water and further investigate the cause with CCTV equipment. We may even need to bring in a  Vortex Cutter or possibly Excavate which takes a lot more time and money, to solve the problem. Time which your business is now losing.
