With the heavy rains in Southwest Florida, an unknown storm drain clog can escalate to an emergency situation overnight. Flooding can occur within hours if a storm drain is blocked and can result in costly emergency repairs and property damage.
How does a Storm Drain prevent flooding?
Storm drains allow for rainwater to be carried away from a surface area, such as a road or parking lot. As the water is carried away, many forms of debris are left behind in the drains’ catch basin. If left, a drain basin will become clogged and can quickly develop into a flood.
Don’t leave your business or rental properties at risk to damage from flooding. Regular cleaning of your property’s storm drain can prevent flooding and headaches down the line. Cleanings in Southwest Florida should occur yearly and be scheduled during the dry season while the water levels are relatively low.
Southwest Florida Storm Drains require specialized expertise.
When looking for a professional storm drain cleaner, look for a certified company with experience clearing Southwest Florida storm drains, such as Avis Plumbing & Air Conditioning.
Unlike other areas of the country, Southwest Florida experiences a unique complication when it comes to storm drain clogs – sand. Sand accumulates in the catch basin of the drain and becomes impossible to remove without the correct equipment. A Vac-Tron jetting system is the most efficient way to remove sand from drains with its use of highly pressurized water to remove clogs. This type of equipment is highly specialized for hard-to-remove clogs and provides a more economical option over other sand removal methods.
