It is important that gullies are kept clean, as a build-up of dirt and sediment could lead to them becoming blocked. Regularly cleaning gullies ensures that a build-up doesn’t occur, which prevents drainage problems and a possible premature replacement. In our gully cleaning service in West Sussex, we use advanced technology, combining high-pressure water jets and strong vacuuming to remove any blockage within the gully. We have a high attention to detail in our work, so once the gullies are cleaned, we also ensure that any debris, mud and the groundwater is drained and cleaned away.

    Gully sucking in West Sussex

    During our service, we will use a gully sucking truck which has suction gear on board. This sucks any debris, mud and wastewater that could be blocking the gully out of the drain, removing the blockage and restoring it to its functionality. Once the gully is cleaned, the debris will be taken to a disposal point in West Sussex to make sure it is disposed of safely and responsibly. We are always thorough in our services, and once the gully sucking is complete, we will follow up with a jet wash to clear the gully of any remaining dirt.

    The importance of maintaining gullies

    Ensuring that gullies are clean and free of debris and sediment is incredibly important. If steps aren’t taken to regularly tend to gullies, it can lead to a series of draining problems. This could include unpleasant smells, and their ineffective functioning. If a gully doesn’t function properly, it could mean that their intended purpose, which is to prevent flooding on the road, isn’t carried out. If this is the case, it can result in aquaplaning, making it extremely dangerous for drivers on the road. Frequent gully cleaning in West Sussex can prevent this.


    How do gullies get blocked?

    Gullies may become blocked for a number of reasons. As they are normally situated on the side of a road, there can often be dirt and debris thrown off wheels as cars drive by. There will also be a high amount of mud created within the gully when rainfall makes it move into the drain, which can create a blockage. A problem can also arise when tree roots grow into the drain and the gully, and when they continue to grow. If this happens, they can obstruct the gully and cause flooding on the road. Gully cleaning in West Sussex can ensure the roads are kept clear and the gullies operational, keeping them free of dirt and debris build-up.
