French drain maintenance


The French drain plays an essential role in the protection of your home. It prevents, among other things, the infiltration of water, humidity and mold. To increase the efficiency of its performance and preserve its lifespan, it is recommended to inspect and clean the French drain on a regular basis, at least once a year.

French drain cleaning is a task that must be performed annually, especially when the drain is in a soil where you notice the presence of iron ochre.

When properly maintained, your drain will do its job without causing a problem. However, if they are not cleaned well, your French drains will not function properly and will gradually lose their effectiveness, which will increase the risk of water damage and can generate significant costs.

With Quebec winters, it is absolutely necessary to carry out this step to preserve your property foundations.

Several external factors can cause a blockage in your drainage system, which will require you to call on one of our experts for a French drain cleaning. Among the common causes:

  • Accumulation of materials of all kinds, such as sand, earth or other, which can significantly reduce the life of your drain.
  • Roots from trees and other vegetation increase the deterioration of your drain as they multiply and cause more concern. Eventually, a blockage or even a breakage will occur.
  • The type of soil can greatly influence the function of your drain. Clay or sandy soils have the opposite effect on drainage capacity. It is therefore necessary to know the type of soil where the drain is installed in order to compensate for the different weather conditions.
