What is Sewer Cleaning?
Sewer cleaning involves the cleaning of sewer lines and the sewage system of houses, businesses and public facilities. The work is done by a professional and licensed plumber. Sewer cleaning involves the use of mechanical devices and chemical solutions to clean the inside of the sewer pipes. This is done to prevent aging pipes from getting clogged and to prevent damage to the pipes as a result of a build-up of fat, grease, and other waste.
When Should a Sewer Be Cleaned?
You should clean your sewer if it is giving indications of being clogged. The most common of these indications are slow drains or clogged drains. Other indications of clogging might be a smell from the drain or from the toilet. Sometimes it can be difficult to tell if the clogging is at the main line or is in the drain itself, so it is best to call a plumber any time you are in doubt.
We recommend homeowners have their sewers professionally cleaned at least once a year.
How to Prevent Costly Sewer Repairs?
Only flush the 3Ps – pee, poo and paper (toilet paper). Even products marketed as ‘flushable’ can harm the sewer system. Flushing anything other than the 3Ps can damage your home’s sewer system and result in costly repairs. It can also damage the city’s sewer system by clogging pipes with materials that don’t belong and result in crews having to clean or repair it more frequently.
Avoid making these mistakes:
- Pouring grease down your sink or toilets
- Do not pour oil or fats down your drains
- Do not flush feminine hygiene products down your toilets
