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.

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.

As many of your parking patrons are taking a well deserved break, it will be a great time to book your catch basin cleaning for your parking lot or parkade.  The staff at Edenflo are experts in getting into tight places to access your drainage systems.  Edenflo has a fleet of “Low Boy” vacuum trucks that can work in low clearance areas such as underground parkades, covered parking areas and tight spots. Booking your drain cleaning in the summer allows for your service to be done even faster with less cars to maneuver around and more stalls will be available for those parking customers that may be inconvenienced as we are performing our drain cleaning service.

 The Catch Basin That Stole Christmas

Let’s say that you forgot to get your annual catch basin cleaning this year. You’re thinking to yourself;

“Heck – I did it last year, we should be good for a while yet shouldn’t we?”. 

If you’re thinking about what could possibly go wrong, let’s bring Mr. Murphy and his famous laws into the picture.

Murphy’s law dictates that if something can go wrong it will.  When it does go wrong, chances are it will go wrong at the most inopportune time.

Painting a picture that has happened before….

It’s Christmas morning and you are just about to begin opening presents with your family.  You are looking forward to a great 5 day break (that you absolutely deserve).  You can leave your duties as property manager to wait until you get back.  What could possibly go wrong?

Then the call from your office answering service comes.  Did you know that the underground parkade that you manage in downtown Vancouver is flooded and you have 47 voicemails waiting for you from irate tenants.

Don’t let your clogged catch basin steal your Christmas.  Have it cleaned and inspected before an emergency happens by the experts at EdenFlo Vacuum Pump service.  When you need catch basin service in  Vancouver, Aldergrove, Surrey, Langley, Burnaby, New Westminster, Delta or White Rock, contact  EdenFlo Pump Truck Services at 604-575-1414 and schedule your annual catch-basin inspection and cleaning today.

Catch Basin Cleaning – Will It Be Panic or Peace?

 Most of the seasonal debris including the fall leaves are hitting the ground and making their way towards your catch basin.  If you have had your fall catch basin cleaning done by the EdenFlo team, the debris should be passed easily through your drainage system.  If you haven’t cleaned your catch basin yet, you may be in for an unpleasant surprise when the back up begins…
At a minimum, your catch basin should be serviced at least once a year.  Whether your drain is in the middle of a surface parking lot, or in the basement of an underground parkade, a clogged catch basin can be a huge inconvenience.  Our fleet of specialized vacuum pump trucks will take care of your catch basin cleaning quickly and efficiently.

Your Catch Basin Plays a Role in the Environment

At Edenflo, we’ve always taken great pride in educating our customer base about the importance of catch basin cleaning. We think it’s important for property owners/waste generators to understand their role and responsibilities in the process.That’s why, when we came upon an informative and entertaining video developed by the Capital Regional District (CRD), we simply had to share it! The CRD is the regional government for 13 municipalities and three electoral areas on southern Vancouver Island and the nearby Gulf Islands. The CRD provides regional decision-making on issues that transcend municipal boundaries, and they also develop partnerships to facilitate and deliver projects and services that benefit the region as a whole.

Their mandate is to serve the public and build a vibrant, livable, and sustainable region, so they were more than happy to give us permission to use their video in today’s blog. In addition to the video, their brief article on catch basin maintenance provides all the information you need to be a responsible catch basin owner.  Below ground parkades and parking lots drains fall into this category as well.

Do your part for the bigger picture. Whether you have a need for catch basin service in  Vancouver, Aldergrove, Surrey, Langley, Burnaby, New Westminster, Delta or White Rock, contact  Edenflo Pump Truck Services at 604-575-1414 and schedule your annual catch-basin inspection and cleaning today.
