One of the biggest nightmares you might face as a business owner is flooding on your property. Clogged storm drains make this backup more likely to happen, leading to real problems in your property. If you operate out of Indianapolis and are worried about the state your storm drain might be in, reach out to our team at NuFlow Indy and let our professional and skilled team have a look.

Understanding Your Storm Drain Pipes

Storm drains should be inspected routinely to ensure there are no blockages or obstructions slowing down the flow of water. Along with clearing blockages, you also need to make sure your pipes are strong and in functional condition. Storm water drains can get choked up with mud, garbage bags, debris, and other types of particulate buildup. Plus, it’s inevitable for storm drain pipes to corrode over time, and when the cracks begin to form water starts leaking into the ground. That is when the danger of flooding begins to appear.

The Benefits of Storm Drain Repair and Cleaning

Proactively implementing storm drain cleaning and repairs before flooding actually occurs offers numerous long-term benefits and can alleviate considerable future headaches. Along with the prevention of future property damage due to flooding, some additional benefits include:

  • Saving money – Proactive storm drain cleanings will provide various cost savings such as eliminating the need for emergency repairs, mitigating property damage, and minimizing costly disruptions to daily operations.
  • Increasing property value – Storm drainage systems that are well-maintained help contribute to the overall functionality and aesthetics of a property, increasing the appeal to buyers.
  • Enhancing safety – Functional storm water drains reduce the risk of accidents such as vehicle collisions caused by flooded roadways and slips and falls by pedestrians.
  • Mitigating health risks – Repairing storm drain pipes reduces the accumulation of standing water that can often contain harmful bacteria and pollutants.
  • Complying with regulations – Conducting repairs on storm drains ensures compliance with local regulations and various environmental standards. This can help prevent future fines or penalties.
  • Protecting the environment – Proper storm drain repair helps prevent pollutants and debris from entering waterways, which preserves the overall water quality and protects various ecosystems from contamination.

Trenchless Storm Drain Repair at NuFlow Indy

At NuFlow Indy, we have an experienced team of experts who can accurately inspect your sewer using our camera inspection techniques and assess what state your pipes are in. Using our trenchless storm drain repair technology means we won’t need to dig through your property to carry out inspections or repair work.

How Our Storm Drain Lining Process Works

Through a small access point in your storm drain line, we can create a strong coating inside your existing storm drain pipe by passing an epoxy-coated lining through it. The lining will inflate, and the epoxy material will be cured in place and hardened. This new hard coating will create a pipe within your old existing pipe, sealing it from any cracks and breakages.

Our procedure ensures that your storm drain is completely safe from any damage and corrosion. The new storm drain pipe will allow the water to pass through without any obstacles or delays.

Additionally, our trenchless storm drain repair saves on an array of costs via reduced cleanup and less time needed to complete the process, and it also provides a long-term solution, which saves money on future repairs.
