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.

Have the experts at EdenFlo Pump Truck Service give you a complimentary assessment of your catch basin or drain cleaning needs.  Whether your offices are in Vancouver, Abbotsford, Aldergrove, Surrey, Langley, Burnaby, New Westminster, Coquitlam, Delta or White Rock, EdenFlo Pump Truck Service provides both emergency and scheduled maintenance service for your drainage needs. Call us today at 604 575 1414 or contact us for a complimentary review of your requirements.

Back to School Means Back to the Office – Are Your Parkade Catch Basins Ready?

It’s likely that kids will be back in school all over the lower mainland come September.  This will mean that many of the parents that have been part of the “at home school experiment” since March will be returning to their offices. Your parking lots and parkades will need to be ready to accept this influx of vehicles.
Debris build up in your catch basins and drains could mean that your parking employees may have difficulty accessing parking spots. Even small rains can cause back ups and flood your lots if your catch basins are clogged. Now is the time to contact the professionals at Edenflo Pump Truck Services to service your catch basins.

Get a jump on your parkade drainage maintenance needs by booking Edenflo in August prior to the September back to work rush.

The  Importance of Lower Mainland Catch Basin Maintenance

 

Your catch basins may be in your outdoor parking lot or in the basement of your parkade.  Regardless of location, your catch basins are there to collect excess rain water from the surrounding area. We all know that rain water is something that we have an abundance of in the Lower Mainland.

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.

We know that many of you are dealing with more important issues right now than worrying about whether your catch basins are clogged. A simple call to EdenFlo will have us there to inspect your catch basins.  If your catch basins do require service, we have the right equipment to do the job including special “Lowboy” units that fits into lower spaces, like underground parking garages.

Catch Basin Maintenance 101

When it rains, or there’s a sudden snow melt (rare here in the lower mainland, but possible), it’s essential that the infrastructure in an urban or suburban area is designed so that there’s somewhere for the water to go. Otherwise, it ends up pooling in basements and around building foundations, where it can cause costly damage and lead to structural problems, mould growth, and other unpleasant conditions.

Most areas use storm drains (intakes that are connected to municipal storm sewers) and catch basins (“holding areas” for water that can fill when there’s a lot of flow, and empty slowly later) for runoff management

It’s easy to forget about storm water management systems when it’s not raining, or when they’re working properly. The problem is that we don’t notice that there’s a problem until it’s too late – when the water is advancing on our homes and businesses, or filling up our basements.

You need to take stock of your storm water management systems when it’s not raining. Edenflo specializes in pump truck services on the lower mainland, and can help you keep your storm drains and catch basins free of debris, and your drains flowing. We operate British Columbia’s premiere pump-truck service, with high-pressure water jets to dislodge clogs and vacuum pumping to take them (and whatever else) away for environmentally responsible disposal. We even have a special “lowboy” unit that fits into lower spaces, like underground parking garages.

Edenflo provides emergency response and preventive maintenance services to both residential and commercial customers. If you’ve got storm sewers or catch basins on your property call us and we’ll offer advice and service that will keep you out of trouble when the skies start falling.

Cleaning Catch Basins – Not a DIY Job…

The basics of cleaning a catch basin is to remove the debris  that may be blocking the flow of water. Even though it sounds simple, this is not something you should trust yourself to do on your own. Most of the catch basins in the lower mainland are very deep. Trying to scoop out the debris will not only challenge your senses (usually the debris will have a foul smell), but it can also result in a fall or a strain. If you don’t do this for a living like the pros at EdenFlo, you may be in for more than you bargained. EdenFlo has the right tools for the job, and they know the best practices to ensure that commercial drain flows are maximized.

As well, EdenFlo will do an inspection as they are servicing your catch basin to ensure the infrastructure is in good shape.

Rather than try to do it yourself, and then finding out that you will still need to make a call to EdenFlo to deal with a clog, get it done right the first time and put your mind at rest.

Now is the time to get your catch basins inspected and serviced. Edenflo offers the best service in Vancouver, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Maple Ridge, Abbotsford, Aldergrove, Delta, Surrey, Langley, White Rock, Richmond and Lions Bay. Call the experts at 604 575 1414 or fill out our online request for your catch basin 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.
