Drain Cleaning Frequenty Asked Questions
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions some of our customers ask us.
How do I know if my Main Sewer Line is clogged?
A early warning sign of your main drain becomming clogged would be slow or bubbling drains. When you flush a toilet, if your drain bubbles, you may have a clog somewhere in the main. Because all of the lines tie into your house, the lowest drain typically backs up first. This will be a laundry line or a set tub you have in the basement. If you don't have either of these, and your lowest drain is your tub or a sink, then you would have sewerage and waste water coming from these drains.

What usually clogs a sewer line?
There could be several reasons on why your sewer line is clogged. Broken pipes, debris, wipes, or even tree roots could be a potential cause of the problem. Roots are extremely common , and even new houses connect to old pipes which may have preexisting issues. The best thing to do when you have a clog, is to give us a call. We can not only clear the drain, but we also offer Video Inspections as well.

I have "X" Drain Cleaner i bought from the store. Would this work?
We NEVER recommend any kind of drain chemical. Drain Cleaning chemicals are harsh on the pipes, and if they sit inside the pipes long enough it will ruin them.

As a homeowner, is there anything i can do to prevent future backups?
YES! Preventive Maintenance is not only for business, but for homeowners too. If you have roots in your main sewer line, a yearly maintenance is needed. Roots will grow back, and keeping that line clear with a PM is the ONLY way to keep the drains flowing.
If you have additional questions that aren't listed here in the frequently asked questions, you can always email us. However, all emergency calls or jobs should be called in for prompt service.
