What a Storm Drain Does and Why It's Important

Storm drains are those metal grates commonly seen on street curbs or sides. You may also have this type of drain on your property if there's a need to manage runoff in certain areas. It's an important exterior drain because it prevents flooding and damage to your landscape by diverting flow from rainwater and melted snow. Let our team address your storm drain issues in:

Why Storm Drain Cleaning and Maintenance Matter

Storm drain maintenance and cleaning are important because Spokane averages about 17-18 inches of rain per year plus nearly 5 inches of annual snow. When any type of water makes it into storm drains, regular cleaning and maintenance ensure it will be properly directed away from paved or landscaped surfaces.

What Are the Signs of Drain Problems?

It's hard not to notice a drain that's overflowing or backing up or ones that are completely clogged. Still, there are some more subtle indications suggesting it's best to give our drain cleaning company a call. These include:

  • Clogged inlets or outlets

  • Blocked storm drain covers

  • Clogged or overloaded pipes

  • Build-up or debris within the storm drain system

  • Tree root obstructions
