A blocked gully can cause all sorts of problems in a commercial setting.
When a gully becomes blocked, as they often do, this interrupts the flow of wastewater into sewage systems. If this happens you can be faced with a backup of wastewater which can make its way into your property causing leaks and extensive damage. We are highly experienced in commercial gully cleaning and are available, across Sussex, Hampshire, Surrey and London, for both maintenance services and emergency callouts should your gully become blocked.

When a gully is not functioning as it should wastewater is unable to properly run into your drainage system. This can result in unsanitary conditions in or around your commercial premises. All sorts of things can cause blockages in a gully. However, most are caused by foreign objects and materials entering the system, such as oil, fat, food, silt and hair. Outdoor gullies are also subject to stones, mud, leaves and other materials that get washed into the drainage system.
Gully cleaning is necessary when it becomes apparent that a gully is blocked or damaged. However regular gully cleaning is advised to remove any foreign objects and wash out the system before problems arise. Typically, you should be getting your gullies cleaned every two years.
If a gully blockage is causing a problem it can get out of hand quickly and cause serious damage to your property. We work with restaurants and pubs, care homes, schools, industrial premises, shopping centres, leisure centres and food preparation units, taking care of their drainage systems. When drainage issues arise in these facilities and businesses, they may quickly become unsanitary. Floors might also be severely damaged and sitting wastewater can result in leaks and flooding in the building. If such problems occur the damage can be costly and you may need to shut the premises whilst the issues are dealt with, which can result in further loss of earnings.
A blocked gully, or even one that is slow draining, is easy to ignore but can be very difficult to fix, which is why regular gully cleaning and maintenance are very necessary.
