How do Rain Drains work?

It’s always a good idea to clean your Rain drains, but how do you know where to begin?

What Usually Clogs Rain Drains?

Storm drains often clog due to debris caused by excess rainwater that drags dirt and debris into your drain system. Clogs also come from grease and oil buildup, tree roots that fall into your drains, and animal waste from raccoons and rats that hide out in your sewers. In the fall, leaves travel far distances and will often fly into your storm drains and pile up, along with rocks and stones that are solid enough to block water flow.
