It is very essential that a storm drain should be working properly at full efficiency all the time. In the event of a storm, if the drain is cannot channel the accumulated water in a proper manner, it might pose some problems. The water may stagnate resulting in a flood leading to the damage of the building. The damage, mostly affecting its structure might cost you heavily. Hence the drain has to clear the water from time to time. For this to happen, one has to ensure that the drain remains clean always.
The process of cleaning the drain does not pose an uphill task. You might need a pair of gloves along with the cleaning agent. The use of the cleaning agent depends on the matter that is clogged in the drain. The gloves are there to provide adequate protection from the cleaning compound which will have certain chemical substances in them. The gloves will also protect your hands from the matter that is clogged. The storm drain cover can be lifted up using a screwdriver with flat blade. Once the drain cover is pulled up, you will be able to see the drain for yourself.
Once the drain is exposed, one can clean for oneself. You can remove the debris or the gunk that is clogged in the drain with your hands itself. The gloves are there to give your hands the required protection. It is needless to mention to throw away the matter in a safe and sustainable manner. The drain can be made clean with the scrub brush. It will be a good idea to cover the brush with the cleaner with which you clean the toilet bowl. Go deep into the drain, along the sides. Scrub as far as possible. Try to reach as much as your hands will let you go.
Once you have properly scrubbed the drain and its insides, rinse with a full bucket of water. Rinse thoroughly so that the force of water will actually carry away whatever that has been loosened up while you were scrubbing. Once you have washed it thoroughly, replace the cover. This is all what it takes to clean a storm drain.
