Sewer & Drain Cleaning

Sewer Cleaning

Your sewer line is the pipe that carries all of the waste from your house to the main sewer. All of the drains in your house are connected to it. Soap scum, fat, grease, and other items can build up in your pipes causing full or partial blockage, which will slow or completely stop the flow. Tree roots are another common problem, as they can grow into pipes in search of moisture. A sure sign that you have a sewer problem is if all of the drains in the house are affected. Signs your sewer may need cleaning include…

  • Bad Smells coming out of the drains
  • Multiple drains are slow or clogged
  • Water backups up in other drains when using fixtures
  • The water backing up is dark
  • Flooding in the yard
  • Gurgling noises coming from pipes or drains
  • Sewer clean out is flooded

Any of these symptoms shouldnt be ignored. The problem could escalate over time and lead to far greater damage. If you notice any of these signs, call a licensed professional right away.

Drain Cleaning

A clogged drain is the most common plumbing issue. Whatever goes down your drain has a chance of getting stuck and causing a clog. Food, oil, hair, and flushable wipes are some of the biggest offenders. When debris builds up or gets stuck in your pipes, it can lead to bad smells as well as eventual clogs.

The most effective thing you can do for your septic health is to only put human waste, water, and toilet paper down the drain. As soon as you notice a drain flowing slowly or not at all, call a plumber to come inspect and resolve it for you. Trying to fix it yourself, beyond using a plunger, could result in further, unintentional damage.

Here are some common questions that are often asked about drains and sewer maintenance:
Can I fix a clogged drain myself?
Some people give chemical drain cleaners a try but it is not recommended. Drain cleaners can pose a danger to the health of you and your family, the strong chemicals can potentially damage your pipes, and often, they do not solve the problem long term.

A professional will most likely be using motorized drain augers and hydro-jetters, which are very expensive and require special training to use safely. Sewer lines are buried deep and often special equipment is needed to access, repair, and clean them. There are many ways that plumbing issues can be made worse with DIY repairs. If a plunger doesn’t cut it, you should call in a pro.

Should I schedule a drain cleaning annually?
It is recommended that you schedule regular yearly service to clean and check your drains. Regular maintenance is a great way to reduce the risk of large build ups and damages. It is especially recommended if your house is older than 1980 or you experience a high number of clogs (
How often should sewer lines be cleaned?
Sewer lines should be checked and cleaned every 18-22 months, or sooner if you are experiencing any of the signs of a sewer clog described above. If you are a business owner it is especially important to have regular cleaning of your sewer lines to clear early blockages. For places with higher drain disposal rates such as restaurants and hotels, it is extremely important.
If the sewer line is damaged, who’s responsible for fixing it?
Most cities require the homeowner to be responsible for the sewer lines running under the house and property that connect to the sewer main. Most insurance policies do not cover the cost of repairs, but some may include damage from water back up. Check with your provider to be sure.
