Understanding Storm Drain Maintenance, Cleaning, and Repair

Precipitation is an essential part of the water cycle, and without water, we wouldn't be here. Businesses and larger organizations in storm-prone areas like are less able to handle excessive precipitation. Those in urban areas have it even more difficult because, unlike rural areas, they're so densely filled with practically-impermeable surfaces.

Storm drains are made up of inlets, pipes, other channels, and structures that hold or facilitate the transfer of stormwater. Eventually, this water ends up in lakes, streams, rivers, oceans, and manmade waterways. Like all forms of infrastructure, storm drains need to be maintained. Without periodic storm drain maintenance in Cincinnati, OH, commercial enterprises inherently expose themselves to higher sudden costs, sometimes high enough to put businesses out of business.

Another common issue is a combination of practically-unavoidable natural debris blocking heavy rains from flowing through intake points and collecting in catch basins. In short, this creates a buildup of standing water. We go the extra mile to make sure our grates, channels, and catch basins need little maintenance to work as designed.
