Drain Cleaning Special

What is Sewer Cleaning?

Sewer cleaning is the process of unclogging your main sewer line. The main sewer line is the part of your plumbing system that takes all the water from the drains and send it out of your house and into the sewer that your city treats. Sewer lines are bigger than your normal drains, but they usually have three reasons to require sewer cleaning:

  • First, they can accumulate debris, waste, or grease you may have flushed or poured down the drain.
  • Secondly, this may start with grease buildup from a pouring waste down the kitchen sink.
  • Third, could be from tree roots. These roots are getting into the joints looking for water and nutrients. This is typically known as a rooter service.
