While storm drains are designed to handle the rainfall volume that a thunderstorm, hurricane, or monsoon can bring about, these utilities still need to be inspected and prepared so they can properly do what they are meant to do. Atlantic Pipe Services, with our expertise in sewer pipe inspection and other related services, shares a few tips on how to best prepare storm drains for the rainy season.

Inspect Drains Beforehand

As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. In this case, it’s infinitely better to routinely schedule a storm pipe inspection in Orlando, FL than to end up with damage that could have been avoided. Not that inspections are a substitute for actual repairs, but regular check-ins done by your trusted pipe inspection expert go a long way in preparing your storm drains for the onslaught of downpour.

When we carry out storm drain maintenance visits, we typically look for signs of wear and tear and loose connections so that we can help you make an informed decision about what kinds of repairs would be necessary.

Do A Little Cleaning

One of the most effective ways to stormproof your storm drains is to make sure there are no obstructions around them, like leaves and other debris, that can hinder their rainfall-catching functionalities. You can do your part by dealing with what you can easily take care of, like raking the leaves. However, take in one step further by getting in touch with an actual professional that has access to advanced technology such as laser profiling so that the entire utility system is thoroughly cleaned and primed.
