Our urinals were blocked, and we needed them unblocked urgently. I called Metro Rod Reading and they were able to dispatch their engineers promptly and resolved the problem. Would recommend them to anyone, the engineers were friendly and professional.
Chris – Maintenance Manager at a Blue-Chip Company in Thames Valley Park.
Drain maintenance and repair in Reading, Berkshire and the Thames Valley is usually a low-level affair with our drainage engineers typically attending to underground drainage systems accessed via manhole chambers and using high pressure water jetting equipment.
A blocked drain, blocked toilet or blocked sink in Reading, Marlow or Newbury might also involve clearing internal pipework using our electro-mechanical cleaning equipment and multi-storey buildings will often involve us clearing vertical soil stacks where build up of scale can cause problems unless there is a regular pre-planned maintenance regime in place.
All of this is perhaps what you would expect from a drainage company when it comes to drain unblocking, drain cleaning and drain maintenance. However did you know that Metro Rod Reading can also clean your site gutters ?
After all what is a gutter but an elevated storm-water drain ? Gutters form part of your site's drainage system every bit as much as the internal pipes and external gullies and drains which remove both foul and storm water from your building.
One of the attractive features of living in Berkshire and the Thames Valley is the green and pleasant environment enhanced, of course, by the presence of many trees. However trees can cause problems not only via root ingress into underground drain pipes (as our previous website article illustrated) but also, in Autumn through falling leaves blocking gutters.
It’s extremely common for leaves and twigs to blow from trees onto your roof and into your gutters. The longer the leaves remain in there, the wetter they will get, and wet leaves are even harder to remove from a gutter; this can develop into mould and can soon totally block a gutter and render it ineffective in channelling water safely away from your property.
At Metro Rod Reading we can, subject to accessibility, clear gutters on buildings up to 3 storeys in height using our innovative Metro Vac technology. As shown in the above photograph this is operated from ground level with the operator having the benefit of being able to see inside the guttering as he works by virtue of a camera unit mounted on the nozzle of the Metro Vac.
Don't risk blocked gutters from Autumn leaf-fall causing you problems this winter. Simply book in your gutter-clean with us and have peace of mind.

Five Star Customer Review For Pipe Cleaning Works.
Our engineers were working at the Vodafone HQ in Newbury, carrying out cleaning of the stacks on site.
These works had be done OOH (out of hours), which was devised into five night shifts throughout the week. Upon completion of the works, our clients had this to say:
"Can you please pass on your thanks to the two engineers that came to site last week for the stack clean.
Sam has nothing but praise for the standard of works completed by the two engineers.
It’s really refreshing to have sub-contractors come to site and give a 5*service.
Supervisor, Engineers, Technical Facilities Management"
