Metro Rod has had to deal with some of the most severe drainage problems in households in the UK. Some of the most common causes of flooding are excessive rainfall, melting snow, dam failures, coastal surges and improper land use. Fortunately, there are many franchisees in various locations to help customers in emergency situations. 

With so many causes of flooding in the UK, Metro Rod has some advice on how to take precautions. According to a recent Red Cross study, 70% of UK adults have admitted that they weren’t prepared when flooding occurred. So the number one action households can take is to be ready. 

To help prevent flooding, households should clear any blocked drains, gullies or gutters. If they aren’t able to reach certain areas, they can ask for assistance. Any water that flows from the roads into their drains also needs to travel unimpeded. To follow on this, they need to know the map of the drains to understand where flooding may occur. 

The Metro Rod franchise explains how it can assist when there’s flooding: 

“However a flood is caused, it can leave a trail of destruction. At Metro Rod, our experts can help you reduce disruption from unexpected flooding. Our flood water extraction experts use specialist tankers to remove any standing, foul-smelling water quickly and efficiently.” 

As you can see, being a Metro Rod franchisee means knowing how to deal with different drainage issues, such as flooding. If the drainage and flow of liquid aren’t right, it can cause massive problems for households. By supplying clients with the right information, it may prevent disaster in the time to come. 

Who knows? If you start your own Metro Rod franchise business, the next person they’ll call to help with flooding may be you!
