Culvert Cleaning

Culvert Cleaning Services

Keeping culverts clean is important for the unimpeded flow of water past an obstacle or subterranean waterway. Culvert clearing is something we regularly carry out for homes and landowners.

A culvert is a solid pipe, usually made from reinforced concrete that channels excess water from fields, buildings, and roads to prevent flooding. As with any open pipework leaves, rubbish, mud, and debris, all gather in the run and cause the water to stop flowing rapidly. We jet the run with high-pressure water to clear build-up and keep the water flowing.

If you are maintaining a culvert on your land or property, get in touch to organise us coming out regularly to clean your culvert. If you have a blockage that needs to be cleared immediately, we’re here to help too.

Our Method for Culvert Cleaning

Our culvert cleaning services involve using high-powered jetting to break up the dirt. We then carefully and responsibly dispose of the waste. High-powered jets are one of the most effective ways to clean large areas quickly. The water will also flow downstream, re-joining the sewage system. A heavy-duty vacuum pump might be used in some cases to clear certain obstructions. These are great for stubborn blockages.

Culvert cleaning is vital for protection from flooding and the build-up of silt and sediment. Our team works hard and efficiently to get the culvert clean and clear.

The Advantages of Regular Culvert Cleaning

Storms and heavy rainfall can cause mud and debris to build up in culverts which block the system. This makes flooding much more likely, which can cause property damage. Regular culvert maintenance is important to its function, as this will avoid blockages occurring which can incur larger costs.

Our team of highly professional drain engineers carries out many culvert cleaning jobs throughout the year. This means we’re extremely experienced and always looking to improve our methods and become more efficient!

24/7 Callout

Our business is modelled around a 24/7 callout service, so whenever a blockage occurs at your culvert we can be there.

Prevention is best, so make sure your culvert is clear and clean with our culvert cleaning service.

What is a Culvert Drain?

A culvert drain is a large concrete tunnel constructed for water to flow through or under an obstruction. Its primary function is to carry water as a stream under a road or through a dirt mound. These are essential for our sewer systems; they prevent floods by removing excess water and keeping everything flowing.
