Your sewer drain carries all of the waste water away from your home, and into the underground sewer mains. It is an essential component of the plumbing, and without it your house wouldn’t function very well.
Homeowners rarely have to think much about their sewer pipes, but if you end up with a clog or block in one of the secondary or main pipes then you will be in trouble, and in the worst case scenario sewage can come back into your pipes and flood your basement, in which case we you would need to call for emergency drain repair service.
The earlier you can catch the signs of a sewer drain clog, the better. Leave it too late and you will be more likely to experience damage such as sewage backup and other damage. Also, it is more likely that the sewer pipe will only need a simple repair rather than full replacement.
Let the plumbing of your home talk to you. If you notice that you have a clogged drain or toilet, strange gargling sounds that suggest plumbing problems, or the water will not drain from the sink or bath, then you may have a sewer drain clog.
If a secondary sewer pipe is clogged, then only one or some of your appliances will act funky. For example, you may empty your sink and find that the water gurgles into your bath, but your toilet might still flush fine. If your main sewer pipe is clogged, any waste water in your home may cause problems.
The most obvious sign of a sewer pipe clog is when waste water backflows into your basement. If you can help it, you don’t want to wait until this stage. Seek professional sewer drain cleaning services as soon as possible.
A sewer drain runs from your home, outside, and then joins the main lines of your town. It would require extreme excavation work to locate the source of a clog, but luckily we have the technology to do without this.
Using sophisticated CCTV camera inspection, we can take a look in your sewer pipes and locate the exact point of the problem. This allows us to apply the cleaning treatment to any and all affected pipes, while minimizing the costs of the job.
We then use a rooter, also known as a drain snaking, in order to remove any debris. The drain snake is a pipe like machine that is fed into your drains, and contains a rotary blade that can make short work of any obstacle that is in the way.
Only in extreme cases of sewer pipe damage do we have to replace and install a new section of pipe. In all cases where we can help it, we use camera inspections and drain snakes in order to clean your sewer drain, and restore your plumbing to its proper functioning.
We also provide other services that might be useful to you in the case of a clogged sewage drain. Our water damage recovery services can make sure any damage is resolved, and your basement can be restored to its pre-incident state if there has been any sewage backup. Contact us at any time to arrange a free consultation, or to benefit from the rapid response of our emergency services.
