When it rains, it pours. We all know this doesn’t just apply to rainstorms. When it comes to your property, it also refers to the downpour of problems caused by excess water—from disastrous flooding to contaminated water to erosion and more.
Luckily, you can count on storm drains to stop this from happening. From heavy rainfall to melting snow, storm drains channel surplus water into grates. From there, the water is redirected to a stream, lake or other nearby body of water. This, in turn, keeps extra water where it should be: away from your home, driveway, yard, parking lot and property.
However, rain or shine, it’s crucial you keep this drainage system flowing in the right direction. Well, our team at Ray The Plumber can help. From clearing a major blockage to performing a routine cleaning, our storm drain cleaning services will wash away your excess H2O worries—for good.
Water isn’t the only thing that flows through a storm drain’s grates. Mud, sticks, garbage and other objects do, too. Because of this, while your storm drain is handling your excess water, another potential storm is brewing—a clog.
A clogged storm drain is a messy affair. It floods streets, causes extensive property damage and poses severe health hazards. But, you can avoid this catastrophe by keeping an eye on your storm drain’s performance.
If your storm drain isn’t keeping up with the flow of water or the surrounding area begins to flood, it’s clear your storm drain needs some TLC right away.

Stop debris from clogging your storm drain by clearing away fallen leaves, cleaning up any trash and trimming your trees of dead branches. Here’s a good rule of thumb: If water can carry it, you should move it or throw it out.
