Gully cleaning services in East Sussex

Gullies are an important element of road drainage systems that direct water into the sewage network, rather than allowing it to gather on the surface. Allowing sediment and debris to build up within these concrete channels will hinder their effectiveness and may even lead to issues such as flooding if left unaddressed. Our team uses the latest equipment, such as powerful vacuums and high-pressure water jets, to carry out a thorough, five-star cleaning service with minimal disruption. From the moment we arrive on site to diagnose the issue until the successful completion of the job, your gully will be in expert hands. Our approach is highly efficient and cost-effective.

    Gully sucking in East Sussex

    Sucking away sediment is one of the most effective means of clearing blocked gullies. Our trucks are equipped with top-of-the-range suction gear so that any built up deposits or standing water can be cleared with ease. Removing these blockages will restore the functionality of the road gully, preventing further issues. After the gully has been suctioned, we will jet wash the channel to ensure that any remaining debris is cleared. Finally, as responsible contractors, we will transport any waste after the completion of the job and will ensure that this is disposed of at a suitable disposal site.

    The importance of maintaining gullies

    Gullies are an important but often overlooked aspect of drainage. In fact, most people are only made aware of them by the gate that blocks the opening. Nonetheless, they play a key role in preventing flooding and a blocked gully will cause water to pool on the road surface rather than disperse via the sewage network. This can create unsafe driving conditions, and drivers will need to slow down and accommodate longer stopping distances in order to minimise the risk of aquaplaning.

    Blocked drains and gullies also lead to unpleasant odours and, if left unresolved, further issues. Allowing the gully to become damaged or the road to remain flooded can lead to lasting problems with their performance. These issues can require costly maintenance, causing disruption to road users and pedestrians that could have been avoided.


    How do gullies get blocked?

    Because gullies are built into the road surface, they will naturally collect mud, sediment, and debris that are left behind by passing traffic. Overhanging trees can also drop leaves and twigs onto the road that block the iron gate covering the gully and prevent water from draining through. Litter and other manmade items can also make their way to the roadside, causing an unwanted obstruction. During periods with particularly heavy rainfall, all this debris can be carried towards the gully, overloading the system and leaving stubborn blockages in place.
