The main sewer line in your home has a lot of work to handle. It is responsible for transporting the waste water from your showers, toilets, dishwashers, washing machines, and sinks away from your home. An older sewer line, or one that is being worn down by corrosion will clog more easily and will require professional cleaning to return it to its normal flow.

How Often Should I Clean My Sewer or Drain Lines?
We recommend cleaning your sewer and drain lines at least once every two to three years. During a routine cleaning, we can alert you to other potential problems, such as breaks in the line, blockages, or tree roots that have made their way into your piping.
Water back ups often bring sewage into your home, creating an unhealthy environment that is damp and susceptible to mold. This is why we recommend regular sewer and drain cleaning to keep your plumbing system running smoothly over time.
How Do You Clear Out Clogs?
A hydrojet is often used to clean out severely clogged sewer lines. The jet blasts high pressure water through your pipes to cut through the toughest debris. This is the most effective way of clearing out years’ worth of debris sticking to the walls of your pipeline.
Drain snaking or rooting is also an effective method of unclogging sewer and drain lines. These methods are great for breaking up blocks of debris, as well as tree roots. If you have older clay sewer pipes that are cracked, tree roots can find their way into your pipes from the tiniest crack and choke the normal flow within your pipes. Rooter services can help break up the tree roots inside your pipes.
Maintaining your sewer and drain lines on a regular basis will keep your plumbing system running smoothly and help you save on costly repairs.
