Flooding Assistance

Other emergency situations where UBU can help are where there has been flooding. Increased weather extremes in the UK has resulted in an increased risk of excess surface water, sometimes in very challenging locations. Our fleet offers a multitude of solutions from general gully sucking through to Jet Vac tankers which have off-road capabilities including an extended hose which can reach up to 30 metres, which makes difficult areas more accessible. This service is often used by utility companies for wastewater contracts, rail operators, farmers or land managers. 

Once the water has been drained away following a sudden flood, there is often a large amount of leftover dirt and grit. If this dirt is left to spread across highways it can become extremely dangerous for road users. Our state-of-the-art High-Pressure Road Jetters and Road Sweepers can clean the roads efficiently, ensuring safety is maintained.

Road Sweeper

“I can confirm for over 10 years + your company has handled all our emergency requests for road sweepers. Most of our calls are from Amey or Ringway Jacobs where accidents have happened on motorways roads etc and the Police & Highways Agencies are putting us under pressure to have the roads open asap. As a company we could not give you higher praise, the Hiredesk are exceptional as you are always on call ready to respond to any requests we have day or night.”
