Why have your French drain cleaned?

  • To facilitate camera inspection: Regular cleaning of French drains helps eliminate obstructions and accumulations of debris, which facilitates camera inspections. Once the drains are clean, it is easier to identify potential problems such as cracks, encroaching roots, or structural damage.
  • To avoid blockages and associated damage: Cleaning French drains helps prevent blockages which can lead to significant damage. Blockages can cause water to back up, overflow and flood, which can damage foundations and walls.
  • To ensure the full capacity of your drain to perform its functions: French drains are designed to effectively evacuate water and prevent moisture problems. However, over time, deposits such as grease, limescale, rust, iron ocher deposits, sand or dirt can stick to the walls of the pipes, affecting their ability to function properly. Regular cleaning helps maintain the full capacity of your French drain.
  • Prevention of unpleasant odors: French drains can accumulate decomposing organic matter, which can lead to unpleasant odors. Regular cleaning helps eliminate these materials and prevent unwanted odors.
  • To prevent the perforations in your drain from blocking: French drains may have perforations that allow water to infiltrate. However, these perforations can become blocked with debris and buildup. Regular cleaning of French drains helps prevent these blockages and maintain good water flow.
