Expert Tips for Yard Drain Maintenance

yard drain

You might not pay them much attention, but having well-maintained yard drains can be a huge help when it comes to keeping your home or lawn looking its best. Yard drains do your property an excellent service by routing rainwater, melting snow, and other types of runoff away from your home’s foundation.

We at A.M. Plumbing & Rooter are always ready to provide top-quality drain cleaning in San Marcos, CA, but it will also be our pleasure to offer the following tips to ensure your yard drains run smoothly all year round:

Keep the area around the drain clear of debris

Leaves, twigs, branches, and other materials can block the opening and prevent water from draining properly. Always keep the surrounding area free from clutter so your yard drain can efficiently serve its purpose.

Check the grade and condition of the soil around your drains

The ground should be graded in such a way that it slopes away from your house. This will allow water to flow toward the drain instead of getting trapped at its base. You should also inspect your landscape for dips or bulges that can pool water and cause flooding or other drainage problems.

Clean out the drain periodically

To prevent a clogged drain, you should use a hose to clear away any debris or build-up every few months. Or better yet, leave this to a certified professional, as they can utilize techniques like hydro jetting to get the job done correctly.

When in need of exceptional yet affordable drain cleaning services, whether for inside or outside drains in your home, A.M. Plumbing & Rooter is the professional team you can always rely on. Contact us or fill out our online form today to schedule a consultation.
