How to Clean a Storm Drain
How to clean a storm drain is a common concern among property owners. Our team at Cloud 9 Services recommends cleaning a storm drain at least twice a year. Routine maintenance of a storm drain will keep your system draining properly and effective all year round.
If a storm drain stops working, the area is at risk for a potential flood. A storm drain system needs to be working properly at all times in order to ensure a proper flow and to accommodate all the water. A functioning storm drain is essential for every home, building or property.
When our team gets a call for a storm drain cleaning, they follow these steps:
When the jet vac operator arrives at the job site, he first evaluates the system and figures out the drain point to see where to begin cleaning first.
Open and close manhole covers and gates to access the structure/pipes that need to be cleaned.
Technician uses the jet vac truck to clean and hydro jet the structure and pipes. This step removes the sand, trash, debris and water from the system.
Debris is then dumped at an approved disposal site.
