Storm Drain Maintenance and Repair
Residential and Commercial Storm Drain Maintenance in Lorain, Ohio
What is a Storm Drain?
A storm drain is a drain on your property that is used to prevent flooding from rain or melting snow. These drains collect water that would otherwise pool in your yard and move it to the closest body of water – for us, that is Lake Erie.
Storm drains are used both commercially and residentially and are the responsibility of the property owner.
Residential Storm Drain Maintenance
Residential storm drains should be inspected every 2-3 years to ensure they are working properly. We use a small underground camera to inspect the pipes for breaks or blocks. This inspection in included in the cost of the service; if we see any issues, we can help repair them.
Likewise, if you see water collecting over your storm drains, you should also have someone come to inspect them so they don’t become a problem.
Commercial Storm Drain Maintenance
Commercial storm drains should be inspected annually, unless you experience a problem sooner. Frequent inspections are very important in a commercial setting because there can be more damage to your property and the property of your tenant or customers.
If we do find an issue, we recommend our high-pressure water jetting service for commercial customers. Jetting is a quick and effective way to remove any blockage, especially grease buildup.
