Protecting Our Waterways: How Staeppen Clean Prevents Sediment Pollution in Street Drains

As a responsible pressure washing company, Staeppen Clean understands the importance of protecting our environment. One crucial aspect of our work is preventing sediment pollution in street drains when pressure washing driveways. In this blog post, we'll explore why this is a critical issue and how Staeppen Clean takes proactive measures to safeguard our waterways.

Why is sediment pollution a concern?

Sediment pollution occurs when soil, dirt, and debris enter our waterways through storm drains, causing harm to aquatic ecosystems and human health. Sediment can:

• Cloud water, reducing sunlight and damaging aquatic habitats

• Carry harmful pollutants like heavy metals, pesticides, and bacteria

• Clog waterways, causing flooding and damage to infrastructure

• Impact drinking water quality and treatment costs
