What is Gully Cleaning?

Drain gullies are a vital part of your drainage system as they receive grey wastewater from your kitchen, bathroom, washing machine, and utility rooms, which then flows into the nearby sewer system. They are often located outside your property, either near the front or back door. When these vital parts of the drainage system become blocked, bad smells, leaks, and debris build-up can occur – causing severe issues if left unchecked. Just like all drains, regular maintenance prevents any unwanted problems or costs from piling up. 

Before you book a gully cleaning, we do advise that you remove any visible debris yourself – with appropriate safety equipment including rubber gloves and protective glasses. Certain times of the year, especially autumn, see an increased fall of leaves. Regularly picking these up can prevent the main cause of blockages. 

If, after performing your own maintenance, you find that any smells or blockages persist, then it will be time for our drainage experts at Coastal Drains to visit your property. We use effective drain cleaning tools to swiftly clear your drains and gullies with high-pressure water jetting in order to keep them clear and working efficiently.

Why Gully Cleaning and Maintenance is Important

Highway gullies are the roadside drains that are typically covered by a metal gully cover. They are connected to surface water sewers – the purpose of which is to take away excess water from main roads and discharge it into watercourses and sewers. They provide an essential role in increasing the health and safety aspects of the used road, ensuring that these roads are not overwhelmed or flooded by heavy rainfall. 

If a large amount of water is allowed to over-encumber main roads, or the gullies found on your property, due to a blocked gully; it can result in multiple problems. Unpleasant odours, ponding, and aquaplaning, can all occur which creates hazardous conditions for drivers and unpleasant conditions for areas around the gully on your property. 

For highway gullies, an excess of surface water after heavy rain leads to an increased stopping distance for vehicles. This makes it difficult for pedestrians to cross safely – however, in serious cases of flooding, the road can become completely flooded and impossible to pass through safely. 

Regular gully cleaning and maintenance is important. Those who have a responsibility to keep roadside gullies clean in order to ensure the safety of road-users, and those who have gullies on their properties, should undertake regular maintenance before any problems become severe. 

Luckily, you don’t have to do this maintenance yourself if you do own a gully on your land. Our expert drainage engineers are able to clear gullies throughout Sussex with extreme proficiency. To book your gully cleaning and maintenance, contact us today.
