Like you.  We hate surprises.  It seems that we get emergency calls more often than not from property managers with underground parking garages or parking lots with clogged catch basins.  Yes, EdenFlo appreciates the calls and we are always ready to respond to your emergency needs.

Having said that…. wouldn’t it be nicer and less stressful to put your catch basin or drain cleaning for your underground garage or parking lot on a set maintenance schedule?

Generally speaking, our low ceiling parking garage clients that allow us to perform regularly scheduled maintenance have fewer urgent issues than those clients that choose to ignore this important mechanical component of your parkade.

Don’t Wait for an Issue to Clean Your Catch Basins

The most frequent mistake with Catch Basin cleaning is waiting until you see or are notified of a drainage backup or blockage. By the time you see a small lake forming around your catch basins, more significant issues may already exist in the underground lines that connect your drainage to the municipal system. Scheduling regular catch basin cleaning ensures that you will have trouble free flow from your property.

How often should you schedule cleaning?

As we all recognize, it rains a lot in the Lower Mainland!  This alone dictates a higher frequency for cleaning.  Also, if your catch basins are located in an area where there are a lot of trees or other landscape features, your schedule should be more frequent.

Lower Mainland Cold Snaps May Contribute to Damaged Catch Basins

 
We’ve had our share of cold and snow this winter on the lower mainland. Prolonged freezing temperatures can cause damage and heaving to the surrounding areas of your catch basin and storm drains.

A call to EdenFlo Pump Truck Services to inspect your catch basins is now more important than ever. If your catch basins do require service, we have the right equipment to do the job including special “Lowboy” vacuum pump trucks that fit into lower spaces, like underground parking garages.

Lower Mainland Flooding a Reminder to Inspect and Clean Your Catch Basins.

The abundance of rain that the lower mainland receives has been highlighted to the world these past few weeks. Businesses and organizations can do their part to minimize flooding by getting their catch basins inspected and cleaned on a regular basis.

Over time, the ability of catch basins to do their job deteriorates from the elements.  Debris including organic waste, pieces of asphalt or concrete and other particulate matter contribute to restricting the flow. Eventually the flow stops, and then you have a big problem.

The catch basins lead to the storm main lines.  This is your defence against flooding.  The catch basins are there to trap sand, silt and debris, preventing it from getting into the storm main lines.  Regular maintenance can ensure that the buildup of debris in the catch basins is never great enough to block the flow of water.

A call to EdenFlo Pump Truck Services to inspect your catch basins is now more important than ever. If your catch basins do require service, we have the right equipment to do the job including special “Lowboy” vacuum pump trucks that fit into lower spaces, like underground parking garages.

Pros and Cons of Preventive Catch Basin Maintenance

We love living in the lower mainland. The mountains merging with the ocean is one of the most beautiful sights in the world. We also live in one of the wettest areas in Canada with almost 100 inches of rain per year.
It’s the rain that creates many of the issues with catch basins in Vancouver and surrounding municipalities. If you own a commercial property that has either a surface drain or an underground parkade with multiple catch basins, you need to weigh the pros and cons of implementing preventative catch basin maintenance.
PROS (Doing Regular Catch Basin Maintenance) 
– cost certainty
– uninterrupted facility use
– peace of mind during significant weather conditions
– happy customers or employees
CONS (Reacting to Catch Basin Back Ups and Blockages)
 
– unexpected costs due to emergency service
– lost parkade revenue
– disgruntled employees
– unhappy customers

Post COVID Vancouver Offices May Have to Compete for Tenants

As vaccinations begin, there appears to be a light at the end of this long tunnel known as the pandemic. This means that in the not to distant future, many of us will be returning to offices to resume pre-covid careers.

Or will we?

Many predict that businesses located in high density urban areas like downtown Vancouver,  may keep their new virtual footprint.  This will lead to less office demand and could mean vacancy for once sought after space.  If you are a property manager, you may want to take a look at how you can make your offering as strong as possible. That starts with keeping your maintenance up to date, including your parkade.

The lower mainland attracts an abundance of rain, and that could mean parkade flooding due to catch basins that are clogged or damaged. It’s wise to have your catch-basin maintenance needs on a regular schedule to ensure that they are draining properly. Nothing is more unattractive for a potential tenant than having to park away from their tower because of flooding issues.

Reduced Staff at the Office Means a Great Time to Inspect and Clean your Catch Basins

With many lower mainland companies adopting a work at home mentality during the pandemic, now is a good time to inspect and clean your catch basins in your parking lot or parkade. You may find that with less cars parked, exposed drains and catch basins may be sharing clues of needed repairs or maintenance. Trouble may come in the form of water pooling around the basins, slow draining, or debris covering the grates. A catch basin that appears sunken into the asphalt or concrete is damaged and will need remediation. Cracks in the pavement around the drain is another problem area to look out for.

Low ceiling drain cleaning

A Preventive strategy to keep storm drains (catch basins) from clogging is the most effective method to protect your real estate. If you see debris on top of the grates, safely remove it.  A reminder to never attempt to remove the storm grate yourself, only the debris on top. Call EdenFlo Vacuum Pump Service if further action is required.

Don’t wait for a problem. When you need the best catch basin service or inspection in  Vancouver, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Maple Ridge, Abbotsford, Aldergrove, Delta, Surrey, Langley, White Rock, Richmond or Lions Bay, call the EdenFlo experts at 604 575 1414 or fill out our online request for your catch basin service

Fall Debris and Catch Basins Not a Good Mix

The colours of fall are beautiful in the lower mainland. Leaves are falling and coating the roads with different tints of yellow and red. Unfortunately, the beauty  of fall is not necessarily welcome in parking lots and parking garages.
Fall is the heaviest season for debris.  This debris finds its way into catch basins and drains. If you have not cleaned your drainage system and or storm sewers, you may be in for a rude surprise of clogs that will result in back ups and possible flooding.
