Flood Water Clean-Up Service

Whether caused by a burst pipe, a sudden flash flood, or a build-up of excess rainfall, floods can feel overwhelming leaving behind damage and standing water. Here at Metro Rod, we are experts in flood water extraction with specialist tankers, operated by a team of highly trained engineers. We’re here to remove floodwater and waste from foul flooding from your premises to provide you with much-needed flood relief.

Removing Water from Commercial Properties, Construction Sites, and the Public Sector

When a flood occurs on a commercial property or public sector building, the disruption it causes to day-to-day activities can be problematic. Returning to normality is a must, and the sooner the better to allow for a speedy recovery.

The good news is that there is no task too big or small for our tankers to be able to handle. Whether a small storefront with a burst pipe or a larger standing water problem in a warehouse, our tankers are well suited to extract water from any size of property.

At Metro Rod, we are also able to aid with standing water or flooding on construction sites. Our job is to help reduce the impact flooding can have on your schedule.

Removing Water from Basements and Domestic Properties

Having standing water or waste from foul flooding in your home can not only be disruptive to everyday life, but it can often cause further damage to carpets or furnishings. Standing water can smell and, if the flood is caused by a burst pipe, it can also contain waste products that you do not want in your home.

Metro Rod is on hand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to respond to emergency call-outs for flooded homes or basements. We are here when you need it most.

Removing Flood Water from Roads

Standing water or flood water on roads can be a common occurrence. Not always caused by excess rainfall, standing water on a road can be indicative of a larger drainage problem. In such cases, we will not only remove the flood water but also carry out a CCTV drain survey to identify the cause and advise you on any drain repairs required to prevent further flooding.

Flood Water Extraction FAQs

What causes flooding

Some floods can be the result of natural causes whereas, others are caused by blockages in or damage to pipes and drainage systems. In such cases, we will not only remove any stagnant water but can unblock and repair your drains to help safeguard the property against future problems.

If you are unfortunate enough to suffer a burst tank or heating system, we can assist with removal of the escaped water and repair of your heating system through our sister company Metro Plumb.

How long does it take for flood water to naturally drain?

How long floodwater takes to naturally drain will depend on the cause of the flood. Flash flooding can take hours to drain away, where natural flooding can take days or even weeks. If the flood was caused by a build-up or damage in a drainage system then it could keep returning until the drain is fixed. In such cases, it is important to get the drain repaired or unblocked as quickly as possible to help reduce further damage from occurring.

Water can be extracted much faster by using a tanker. At Metro Rod, we have a fleet of tankers that are poised and ready to help drain away water. Tankers can remove excess water allowing for a far quicker recovery. If you need to have water removed, you can call us today on 0800 66 88 00.

How long does it take for a flooded property to dry?

Once the water has drained, a flooded property can dry in anywhere from a handful of hours to a few days. The water can be removed in a more expedient way using a tanker, and this will aid with the recovery process. Once the water has been removed, making sure the property is well ventilated can help with ensuring it dries with minimal disruption.

What specialist equipment is used to remove flood water?

At Metro Rod, we use specialist 2,000-gallon tankers with 4” hose pipes to clear floodwater. Using tankers with large hoses can make sure that both large and small flooded areas can be catered for. Using specialist tankers ensures that the flood water can be removed as effectively as possible.

How much does flood water extraction cost?

How much it costs to extract flood water will vary depending on a couple of factors. How large the flood is and how big a space it occupies will help determine how long it will take to remove the water. That being said, at Metro Rod we specialise in removing unwanted water as quickly and efficiently as possible and always provide a fair, competitive price.
