Did you know that catch basin cleaning goes a long way in avoiding floods? That is exactly why you need to have any catch basins that are located on your property cleaned on a regular basis. By regular basis we are referring to scheduling catch basin cleaning in the early spring and late fall. You should also schedule catch basin cleaning at anytime that the catch basins appear to be clogged or are not working properly. For example, catch basins tend to clog fairly easily when they are located in areas where there is a significant amount of downed tree branches and tree limbs.

If you notice that the catch basin grate is stuffed with tree branches, tree limbs, tree leaves, dirt, soil, sand, weeds, garbage, or anything else for that matter, contact a professional catch basin cleaning company immediately. You do not want to take the risk of the catch basin or catch basins on your property flooding. Floods can cause a significant amount of damage to your property including the inside of your home or building. Flooding can also cause a great deal of damage to your neighbors’ property including the inside of their homes and or buildings. If a flood originates on your property, you’re responsible for that flood from both a financial and legal standpoint.

That means your neighbors can sue you for damages if the flood causes any damage to their properties. Unless you have a separate flood insurance policy in place, which most property owners do not, you’ll need to pay for those damages out of pocket. Can you afford to pay for those damages out of pocket? In addition, your property insurance policy typically does not cover flood damage to your property. Once again, unless you have a separate flood insurance policy any damages to your own property that are caused by the flood will need to be paid for out of pocket.

Once again, can you afford that expense? Last but certainly not least; if the flood causes any type of damage or contamination to the environment, you will be responsible for that as well. That includes covering any cleanup related costs and paying for fines. We know that this stuff sounds terrible. However, there is some good news to share. You can easily avoid causing a flood and all of the negative aspects that go along with it by simply scheduling a catch basin cleaning wit a professional catch basin cleaning company.

That way you won’t cause a damaging flood, and you won’t need to lie awake in bed worrying about it.
