Sewer Line Cleaning

Sewer line cleaning is an important business. Most homes need their sewer lines cleaned occasionally to prevent build-up and backups. Many factors can contribute to clogging your sewer lines. Some things should not be done DIY and are better left to qualified professionals. Sewer line cleaning is best left to professionals. One major concern with Clogs in sewer lines, they can be much more hazardous as the clogs can cause backups in wastewater filled with bacteria.

With sewer line cleaning technicians will use high-powered tools like an auger or hydro jetting which uses high-pressure water to clear sewer lines.

Signs You Need Sewer Line Cleaning

Homeowners may notice a variety of signs if there is a problem. Signs you have an issue could be your toilet is not flushing properly or your toilet is making gurgling noises. Another sign could be your drains in areas such as a bathtub or sink are slow to drain. If you smell a foul odor coming from your drains or your yard that is also a sign that there is a problem.

A friendly reminder to prevent future sewer line issues, avoid flushing facial cleansing cloths, feminine hygiene products, or thick paper towels. You want to avoid any other items not intended for flushing down the toilet to prevent backups.

How Long Does Sewer Cleaning Take?

Depending on the circumstance, some drains become clear rather quickly. In other situations, it could take a qualified team of professionals several hours to clear the drain and resolve the issue. If there is damage to the sewer lines, if a tree root has crushed or cracked the sewer line, the damaged pipe will need to be replaced and will take longer to complete.

When is the Best Time of Year to Get it Done?

You can have your sewer line cleaned any time of year. We typically recommend the procedure in the fall after the spring and summer storms and before the holiday season. It’s best to have sewer line cleaning complete every 18 to 22 months. Depending on your property and septic system, you may need more frequent cleanings. It’s also important to consider that the hydrojetter will not work in freezing temperatures, so other methods may be required during that time of year.
