Do you need a catch basin cleaning service? If you own real estate that has a catch basin or multiple catch basins on the premises the answer is yes. In essence, you are responsible for any catch basins that are located on your property.  Although they need to be maintained on a regular basis this is an area that many property owners fail to address. That’s because catch basins are not something that most people think about unless there is an issue. So what can happen if you fail to maintain them? Catch basin cleaning is needed because catch basins tend to get clogged up with dirt, sand, sticks, leaves, garbage, and other debris.

When they become clogged they cannot do their job, which is to distribute rainwater and snowmelt runoff. That can cause the rainwater and snowmelt runoff to flood the area where the catch basin is located. In that case, the water will flood your property. In severe cases the floodwater will enter into your home or building. In the most severe cases the floodwater will also enter into the street and your neighbors properties. Unless you have a comprehensive flood insurance policy in place you are responsible for any of the damages that the flood causes.

You should also be well aware of the fact that floodwater typically contains contaminates that negatively affect the environment. You may very well be on line the line for any environmental damage that the flood causes as well. That includes cleanup costs, which tend to be exorbitant. The bottom line is that if you fail to hire a reputable catch basin cleaning service as part of your regular property maintenance schedule you’re taking an unnecessary risk. If the flood causes damage to your property, your neighbors, the street, and or the environment you may be responsible from both a legal and financial standpoint.

That means you may end up going bankrupt if you don’t have tens of thousands of dollars available. The good news is that this can all be avoided by hiring a catch basin cleaning service in the spring and the fall or whenever the catch basins start showing signs of being clogged. If that happens you will begin to notice that the ground located near the catch basin is constantly wet. Another sign is when you start to notice that debris is blocking the grate.
