- Maintaining your drains means your main sewer line is less likely to burst and leak.
- You will end up saving money on repairs, replacements, and cleaning fees if sewage backs up into your home. If your sewer line breaks and floods your yard, this is typically a considerable expense and contaminates your soil.

- You won’t have to worry about the bacteria and other nasty things that travel in sewage being in your home. Your family’s health isn’t at risk.
- If you have your drains cleaned regularly, it is much easier to catch plumbing problems in your home. Finding issues as soon as possible will help you save money on repairs.
- Clean drains allow the outside of your home to be safer. You won’t have to worry about your drainage system clogging as much and causing a mess that people must walk through. Standing water also gives insects a place to breed and causes your landscape to erode!
Clogged Drain Repair
If you have a clogged drain in your shower, toilet, or sink that you can’t plunge, we have the tools to fix it quickly. We determine the type of repair based on the location of the clog. We can assess the situation as soon as we show up and repair the drain to get your plumbing working again!
Signs of a Clogged Drain
- A slow drain means that you usually have a clog somewhere in your secondary or primary pipes. If there isn’t a total clog or more significant clog, then the slow drain may just be caused by buildup along the walls of the pipes. Having your drain cleaned helps you avoid the need to have your pipe repaired when a clog gets too big, and the pipe starts to leak or bursts!
- If you have a total clog, then water won’t move at all. Your whole home likely has a plumbing problem, meaning your main sewer line is clogged. If the problem is isolated and the plumbing in the rest of your home is still working great, we can push the clog through the secondary pipe and fix any damage it caused before we leave.
- If you have water backing up into your drains, then this is an indicator that you have a drain that is working toward a total clog. To make sure that your pipes aren’t in danger of weakening, have repairs done right away.
- Sewage backing up into your home is a major concern and requires emergency plumbing services. Having raw sewage in your home creates a hazard for anyone that remains in your house before repairs and clean-up procedures.
