So when should you call us at Metro Rod Swindon ?
- When you have a blocked drain outside your house or commercial premises. Flooding or leakage around a manhole cover might be a tell-tale sign here. If you have a commercial site you may have surface/channel drains which are no longer free-flowing because of build up of debris in them and this is another manifestation of external blockage. All our engineers carry powerful high pressure water jetting equipment which will have your blocked drain cleared in the quickest possible time.
- When you have a blocked toilet. This is a common problem, sometimes caused by inappropriate material such as wet-wipes or nappies being inappropriately flushed, particularly in public or high usage toilets. Our engineers also carry electro-mechanical cleaning equipment which will effectively clear internal blockages.
- When you have a blocked sink or wash-basin. Metro Rod Swindon’s engineers will restore flow for you speedily and efficiently
- If you have a blocked or malfunctioning urinal. Urinal pipework is extremely susceptible to build up of uric scale, a hard deposit left behind and caused by the salts in urine. Over time this will reduce the diameter and even totally block pipework and our electro-mechanical cleaning equipment will clean it out.
- When you have a bad smell coming from your drains in kitchen, bathroom or externally. This is a clear sign of blockage or imminent blockage and Metro Rod Swindon will clean your drains efficiently and safely to ensure the situation is resolved before it becomes critical
- If you manage any commercial or public site with high usage of toilets and wash-basins then call us for a free initial site assessment for a pre-planned maintenance programme for your drains. This is a service we provide for many Property Managers and Facilities Managers in the Slough and Thames Valley area. Just as you wouldn’t regard a 999 call as your only form of home security, and would ensure that you put locks on your doors and took other steps to prevent break-in, so more and more of our customers are realising that the best form of protection against business disruption through drain problems is to prevent those problems in the first place by carrying out regular pre-planned maintenance cleans of their site drainage.
- When you have persistent problems with your drains and need expert help in diagnosing the cause. We can undertake CCTV survey of your drains to identify defects which otherwise, of course, would be invisible to the eye, Our skilled engineers can then undertake a drain repair, typically using “no dig” methods which mean you are spared the cost and inconvenience of an excavation
- When you have blocked gutters. A gutter is effectively a raised drain and using our innovative Metro Vac technology we can provide gutter cleaning, usually from ground-level, in Swindon and across the Thames Valley region.
- When you have a large amount of water or waste which needs removing. For instance you may have severe flooding impact or may have a septic tank, grease trap, interceptor or other form of tank on site. Metro Rod Swindon can provide an appropriate tanker to meet your needs.
