19th January 2020


We are now officially well into 2020 and after your dry January, Veganuary and whatever else you’ve done to detox over January we are officially back in business! As we move further into the British winter we get closer to February, March and the months that bring the worst and coldest weather we may be face all year (global warming dependent!). With this cold weather can come a number of other issues for us all to deal with – blocked drains, frozen drains, drain repair and more.

A blocked drain, a blocked toilet or any other blockages can cause huge disruptions to everyday life – whether this be in a house or in an office building. Metro Rod Nottingham are drain case and repair specialists and are here to prevent blocked drains and help clear drains when there is a drain blockage there. During these winter months there can be obstacles making it harder to clear drains, there can be grease/oil/drain pipes freezing over/wind blowing debris into drains causing blocked drains. It is essential to ensure free-flowing drainage systems that you keep an eye on your drains and call Metro Rod Nottingham & Derby if you have a blocked drains or any other drainage problems – we are here to advise and help!

3 of our top tips for staying care free during peak drainage season…….

  1. Regular usage of drains and tapsIt can be a common mistake for people to not use their drainage systems for weeks during the winter period – perhaps while away visiting family or warmer places. It is crucial when leaving home/any buildings that there is regular usage – this is one cause of blocked drains
  2. Be vigilant and awareIt is crucial to always keep an eye on your drainage system and ensure there is no debris or risk of debris blocking drains, if it is unsafe for you to do then please do call Metro Rod and we can assist in checking your drains and clearing drains. Beware of any small leaks, during the cold weather these small drips can become a big problem.
  1. Don’t let it freeze!Of course during the lower temperatures there is risk of anything stuck in your pipes freezing – make sure you are careful in what you pour down your drains – for example don’t pour fat down your sink: this will freeze quickly and cause blocked drains!
