Metro Rod – Unblocking Gutters.


With Autumn fast approaching, now is the time to have your gutters cleared. Metro Rod Bedford use this state of the art equipment to ensure your drains and gutters run freely.

Why bother?? Well… keeping your gutters clean and free from debris i.e. leaves, dirt and rainwater, prevents any blockages arising. If blockages are left uncleared, they can then go on to cause severe damage to your home.  We understand that it’s not going to be on anyone’s list of favourite jobs, and we know gutter cleaning can be somewhat difficult and even dangerous. This is where our team of experts come into play. Here at Metro Rod Bedford all our engineers have the knowledge and expertise when it comes to cleaning gutters.  We use the innovative Metro Vac system, which uses poles that can reach up to 10 metres high (no need for expensive scaffolding) to ensure an effective and safe gutter clearing service from ground level.

How blocked gutters can cause damage to your home

  1. Water Damage (rainfall) this can eventually seep through your roof, and onto your ceilings.
  2. Wildlife Damage (insects, birds, moss and debris) this can result in vegetation.
  3. Wood Damage (blocked gutters can cause damage to your fascias) this results in severe rotting & deterioration.
  4. Weight Damage (your gutters are not designed to take a lot of weight, debris and water can cause them to bend and break.

Regular gutter cleaning is best being undertaken by a professional at all times, as homeowners do not have the correct equipment nor the skills to undergo the job entailed. At Metro Rod we have inspection cameras to enable us to provide a high quality service, which is both safe and hassle free.
