What is a Storm Drain and How to Clean Them

To first understand how we operate, you must understand what a storm drain is and how we go about cleaning it. A storm drain is a drain designed specifically for the task of draining excess run off from rain or ground water on street freeways, roofs, sidewalks, and even parking lots. 

The storm drains bring water through an inlet and then there is usually one output that is used as a point of discharge, which runs into a lake, ocean, canal, reservoir, etc. The storm drain is then thoroughly inspected by us to make sure we have gathered enough information to begin with our high powered draining trucks. We remove any gunk or extremities manually and then being the draining process.

Once that is done we pressure wash the inside to get any excess debris off the sides. Since all storm drains should be running at maximum capacity, in order to ensure a proper infrastructural efficiency, we get to the storm drains as fast as possible and drain them. We make sure to be as thorough as possible to ensure maximum efficiency.

Preventing Storm Drains from Clogging


Keeping your storm drain or catch basin from clogging is easy and always preventable. Your community can remove debris and trash from the grates before it piles up. Periodically cleaning areas around the drain, such as trimming bushes and raking leaves, is a great preventable measure. Be aware that there will be times when things slip through the grates and unwanted clogging occurs. This is when hiring an experienced team like Cloud 9 Services is needed to keep residential areas from flooding.

Preventative maintenance for commercial storm drain cleaning can be accomplished by simply making sure that the areas around your business are cleaned regularly. In addition to clogging storm drains, garbage, debris, and other pollutants that get carried into the drains eventually end up in fresh water supplies. It is important to remember that the storm water that gets dumped into rivers and lakes is not treated, and that storm water runoff is a major cause of pollution and environmental degradation.

You can protect your storm drain lines and protect the environment by making sure waste and contaminants don’t enter the storm drains around your business. In addition to cleaning up the debris and litter around your business, you should schedule a regular storm drain cleaning with one of our qualified commercial plumbers.
