Flooding in Dorset continues

20140108-200107.jpg
Parts of Dorset are at risk of more flooding, as the Met Office forecasts more heavy rain.

Although the recent weather has overwhelmed drainage systems we have found that the lack of maintenance to essential items such as drainage gullies, culverts and water courses has resulted in significant damage to property.

On a recent visit to assist with a blocked drain causing some ‘flooding’, see above image, we found a substantial area of a commercial property to be heavily flooded simply down to an un-maintained drainage ditch. This particular incident cost thousands of pounds worth of damage, lost revenue and stress for our client.

Maintaining the drainage system around your house or commercial property needn’t be a chore and here at Maintain we are always on hand to offer advice and guidance and provide a solution.

Call us now to discuss any planned maintenance requirements you may have. 01202 300040.

We’ve received this lovely letter from Archie, aged 10, he had to write a letter to a key worker as part of his Lockyers Middle School homework. Thanks Archie, great work! ✅

‘Dear John

My name is Achie. I’m 10 years old and I’m in year 5 at Lockyers Middle School. I’ve chosen to write to you because I would like to thank you for all the work at this difficult time.

Your work is important because people still need their drains unblocking. The local community benefits because their house could flood. Your job is interesting because no day is the same. Your job must be fun because you get to mess around with poo!

I think you have a cool number plate because it is POOBOSS.

With best wishes. Archie Best’
