Warmer Than Usual Fall For Lower Mainland Means Catch Basin Cleaning Time is Now.

 A warmer than usual fall may give a false sense of security as to the need to clean your catch basins.

Dry conditions mean debris has less moisture content. Dry debris that has accumulated in your catch basins may still allow for a reasonable flow of waste water through the system, but one big rain could change the picture.

Once that fall debris of leaves and twigs gains moisture, it will expand and spell trouble for your catch basins. If you haven’t scheduled your seasonal catch basin cleaning, now is the time to book!  Don’t wait until soggy leaves are clogging your drains and you wind up in a bad situation.

Your parking lot, underground parkade and basement are suspect to drainage issues if debris is allowed to accumulate in the system. The EdenFlo team can easily and efficiently clean your catch basins using one of our many pieces of specialized vacuum equipment that allows us to get at even the most challenging drains.

Whether you’re located in Vancouver, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Maple Ridge, Abbotsford, Aldergrove, Delta, Surrey, Langley, White Rock, Richmond or Lions Bay, call the experts at 604 575 1414 or fill out our online request for your catch basin service.

Tips to Keep Your Catch Basins Working Properly

We realize that your catch basins are not your top priority.  However, when they get clogged, it quickly rises to the top of the attention list. Whether your catch basins are part of your home or commercial storm drainage system, a few simple maintenance tips can go a long way in ensuring that your catch basins do the job they were designed to do.

  • Keep grates clear – It becomes difficult for catch basins to collect debris and allow water to drain if the grates are obstructed. As time goes by, without regular cleaning, the grates can become clogged with large pieces of litter and leaves or other debris. Keep an eye on storm drains and remove debris from the grates every few weeks, especially during spring and fall when leaves and twigs are more common.
  • Remove storage debris– Catch basins that are working effectively will collect debris in the bottom, keeping it from flowing through the pipes.  Keep the storage area less than half full of debris so that the pipes do not become blocked and the catch basins continues to function. Use a pipe or broom stick down the grate and take note of where it hits debris and how much further it is to the bottom.

 

These simple tips can help you to maintain your catch basins between regular cleaning service from Edenflo.

Summer Holidays a Good Time for Catch Basin Cleaning of Parkades and Parking Lots

Summer holidays are here and that means that many people in the lower mainland are planning to be away from the office for at least a week or two.
