Drain Clearance Services For The Education Sector

There are thousands of schools in the UK along with hundreds of universities and colleges catering to several million children, teenagers and adults. At any moment, a drainage emergency can bring that pillar of learning to a grinding halt, potentially leading to sending pupils and students home, pausing their education while the problem is resolved. You don’t want that and neither do we, which is why we have depots all over the UK to respond to any emergency.

Schools, colleges and universities deal with hundreds, if not thousands of people on a daily basis and have very complex drainage requirements, but Metro Rod have a vast amount of experience and expertise in dealing with just this. We can offer a range of services – from planned maintenance to drain repair and clearance as and when necessary, to ensure minimal disruption due to blocked or damaged drains. With over 300 drainage engineers nationally each of whom are DBS checked, we can react quickly to any situation.

You don’t have to take our word for it, you can hear it first hand from Rob Jenkins of Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council in the video below.

Emergencies Covered

We have over 30 years of drainage experience, DBS checked, highly trained engineers and vehicles kitted out with the most up to date equipment, so you can be sure that no job will be either too big or too small. We will always endeavour to complete any work at the most suitable time for you; whether it be before the doors open, after they close or during the holidays.

Pre-Planned Maintenance

Prevention, however, is better than cure and we would recommend that you take advantage of the school holidays and get regular maintenance work scheduled to stop any small problems before they become sudden emergencies. Our Pre-Planned Maintenance programmes are very flexible and can be arranged to your needs.

Some of the work we recommend during these periods are:
• CCTV surveys of your drains
• Urinal descales
• Repair/replace degraded manhole covers
• Gutter maintenance
• Grease trap emptying in your kitchens
• Root cutting and localised structural repairs
• Excavations
• Vermin control

We already have many long-standing relationships with various schools, colleges and universities across the country, who know they can rely on our 365/24/7 service, which offers exactly the kind of provision they require.

Building on knowledge gained through existing educational contracts and relationships, Metro Rod are focusing on developing a range of service packages that are seamlessly flexible and cost effective, as well as raising the company profile markedly within the education community. Metro Rod aim to become the number one provider of drainage solutions, and trusted and reliable partners to schools, colleges and universities nationwide.
