We know your drains are clogged! You are hearing gurgling noises, smell foul odors in basements, bathrooms, kitchens, or laundry areas, and toilets, showers, or sinks and experiencing issues like backups, and overflows. Assuming you have gone thru all your home remedies this means you now need a drain cleaning service!



Drain Cleaning


All drain pipes are conected underneath your house through a network and with a ventialtion pipe.  The first step in drain cleaning is to identify if the clog or blockage is underneath or in your sewer line.  Our Plumber will use an augur or a plumbing snake. A majority of the time this helps to clear the clog and push it out of the way. Assuming it does'nt, the next logical step is to check for problems in your sewer line


Sewer System & Cleaning


Your waste drains into the local sewer system. It is a lateral line that connects to the street sewer system. Are these pipes healthy? how old? type? or damaged? Was there a hard freeze recently leading to cracks? The smallest cracks or leaks in your underground pipes can attract tree root growth. Once inside your pipes tree roots quickly grow larger, obstructing water flow and causing pipe damage. In this case we use a procedure called sewer Jetting (also called Hyrdro-Jetting). Hydro-Jetting is a process using a hydro-jet stream of water, strong enough to clear out any debris in its path (see description and image below). Also we use a video camera to see where the blockage lies and what kind of blockage it is. 


Sanitary Vs Drain Sewer


How your pipes are connected? connecting gutters, downspouts, and sump pumps to storm sewers is okay, but connecting them to your sanitary sewer line is risky. A significant amount of water can flow through gutters and sump pumps during heavy rainfalls or as snow melts. Sanitary sewers are intended to remove a much lower volume of wastewater from your house. Connecting stormwater to your sanitary sewers increases the chances of a backup.


Clogged drains and blocked pipes may start as minor issues but can quickly escalate into major problems.  We have seen sewer backup cause severe damage to a house that they had to relocate and spend significant money out of pocket or thru insurance.
