Catch basin cleaning is very important, especially in the spring time when storms can cause big floods in and around the Chicago area.

Catch basins often become full of dirt, leaves, and other debris. Once the catch basin becomes clogged, water can no longer enter the drainage system and instead causes flooding. During the spring rainy season we deal with a lot of catch basin maintenance. Catch basins eventually need cleaning for all drainage systems to remove any debris and small particles that may clog the system.

Catch basins are also called storm drain or curb drain inlets.

When your catch basin is clogged, you need professional help of a 24 hour plumbing company that specializes in catch basin cleaning to unclog it.  Neglecting to do that will higher the risk of your house flooding when storms rush through your area.

How are catch basins cleaned

Catch basin cleaning involves the removal of rubbish and other dregs that have accumulated in the sump. Usually this is done with the use of a catch basin cleaner attached to a vactor truck or a clamshell bucket. While the catch basin is being cleaned additional maintenance work is also performed as needed such as repair of the catch basin’s brickwork, its trap or hood, cover or frame.
