Four Steps to Manage the Cleaning and Maintenance of Catch Basins

If you are a new property manager, or just want to push the easy button when it comes to the cleaning and maintenance of your catch basin inventory, here is a four-step guide to set you up for success.

    1. Be on the lookout for potential problems with the catch basins or drains on properties under your management. Trouble may come in the form of water pooling around the basin, slow draining, or debris covering the grate. Catch basins that appear sunken into the asphalt or concrete are damaged and will need remediation. Cracks in the pavement around the drain is another problem area to look out for.
    2. 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 grate, safely remove it.  A reminder to never attempt to remove the storm grate yourself, only the debris on top. Call the EdenFlo professionals if further action is required.
    3. If you see a catch basin that is not draining correctly on a well-used parking lot, or a blind corner in your underground parkade, do not attempt to clear it yourself. Instead, contact the experts at EdenFlo to manage the situation with safety first in mind.
    4. Have EdenFlo assess your catch basin cleaning needs to help you to be the most efficient with your maintenance spend.  Chances are, routine scheduled maintenance will eliminate all but the most unpredictable emergencies.

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.

Why worry about Catch Basins in your Underground Garage?

You never know you have a problem until it becomes a bigger problem.  This is always the case when it comes to cleaning drains and catch basins in your underground garage.  Debris may be lurking in your drains but not completely stop the flow of water.  One shift in the debris could be the difference between a catch basin back up resulting in the closure of your garage.

Think about the consequences of a closed garage.  Lost parking revenue and customer inconvenience is only part of the problem.   Water will find its way into minute cracks in the surface and walls, which could lead to costly repairs.

Rainy Season – How it Affects Your Septic System

We all know how the rainy season can be, but have you thought about how it’s affecting your septic system?

Septic systems are supposed to be sealed from all ground water. However age affects the best of us and that can be said for your septic system as well. Age can deteriorate or weaken it’s seal against groundwater infiltration. If your system had been infiltrated, your pump will struggle or fail to keep up resulting in an overflow.

Our state of the art technology can help detect and diagnose in these situations.

Septic Tank Services

Are you a commercial business owner or a restaurant entrepreneur or franchiser? If so, you probably have a sanitary device installed at your business. Sooner or later, you will need that device to be cleaned and a septic tank service that will properly maintain and pump out any unnecessary dirt or debris before problems arise. Sanitary services include septic tank pumping, combination vacuum and high pressure cleaning, hydro digging, sewer lines and catch basins, and restaurant grease traps. For commercial purposes, septic tank pumping would be the service suitable to remove sludge or scum in your septic tank. A septic tank is a large tank where any water waste or debris is decomposed by bacteria. Large tank trucks collect and remove any build up in the tank and dispose of it in a regulated landfill site. These services will solve any problems that come up and recommend solutions to avoid it in the future. As a restaurant entrepreneur or franchiser, regularly pumping out your grease traps can save you from a lot of complications and save you money. In the food sector, businesses are required and have a responsibility to have grease traps installed. These are one of the most effective ways of trapping grease and the best way to avoid sewage back ups. Regular maintenance of grease traps allows you to avoid any problems and avoid any accumulation of grease that may result in build up, disgusting odours, and a high expense. These services are safe, reliable, and effective. If you are a commercial business owner or a restaurant entrepreneur or franchiser, it is recommended to have a scheduled maintenance check up.
