Parking Ramp Drain Cleaning Drain Cleaning For Your Ramp

Parking Ramp Drain Cleaning

Winters in Minnesota can be downright brutal. Cold temps and heavy snowfall lead to slippery roads and treacherous driving conditions. To combat these conditions the Department of Transportation and other municipalities spread large amounts of salt and sand on Minnesota roadways. When driving in such conditions, vehicles accumulate large amounts of wet snow around wheel wells and tire rims. the snow contains large amounts of sand and salt.  Where does all this sand and salt end up? In your parking lot drains and sand traps.


Parking ramp drain cleaning on annual basis, is crucial to the life of your parking lot drains and sand traps. If neglected, the salt can break down cast iron pipes causing the pipe to rot from within. Rotten pipes can lead to costly floods or repairs to vehicles within the ramp. The Sand trap can also deteriorate from salt deposits. Sand traps will start leaking if not pumped frequently enough. Not only will you need to replace the tank, you will be stuck with expensive clean-up costs.  Pumping your sand trap at a minimum of once per year will prolong the life of the tank and prevent costly Hazmat clean ups.

All left over waste is pushed from the top of the ramp to the bottom. after jetting, all waste is pumped out of the tank. All liquid waste is disposed of at Met Council. The sand is disposed of at a local landfill. Low clearance ramps are no problem for Drain King Inc. Vac trailer. This trailer can access sand traps in almost every “low clearance ramp”.
