Does your business or residential property feature a trench drain? Also known as a channel drain and line drain, this special type of floor drain is characterized by a long and narrow body through which water drains.
Unfortunately, though, it’s not uncommon for mud, dirt and debris to accumulate inside the trench drain lines leading to the separator. When this occurs, the separator may shoot out high-pressure water, creating a serious mess. Having your trench drain professionally cleaned eliminates this problem while restoring the drain back to its original working order.
Can I Clean My Own Trench Drain?
Depending on how the trench drain is used, you may be able to clean it yourself. Keep it mind that a complete cleaning job requires the appropriate equipment, which many people do not have. Furthermore, cleaning a trench train is an ongoing process; otherwise, it will become clogged again. If you don’t have the equipment or time necessary to clean your own trench drain, you should hire a professional.
It’s also worth noting that cleaning a tench drain can be hazardous, especially if the person cleaning the train isn’t familiar with the process. A professional cleaning company will take extra precautions to ensure the safety of both workers and the environment.
Safety comes in the way of our technicians ensuring that they are safe, as well as them ensuring the safety of the environment. It is important to make sure certain types of waste do not find their way into the ecosystem.
