What causes a clogged drain or sewer

The most common cause of sewer and drain blockages is simple buildup, typically from dirt, hair, grease, debris, and mineral deposits. Older pipes over time can corrode, crack, and misalign, allowing access for tree roots and other objects to enter into the lines also.

We use professional drain cleaning cable machines for all soft stoppages. We also have hydro-jetters for those instances when a cable just won’t do. A hydro-jetter uses high-pressured water to remove tree roots, rust, debris and calcified build-up along sewer and drainpipe walls and can drastically improve the condition of your drainage system.

You may need professional drain cleaning if:

  • Water is draining slowly
  • Bad smell is coming from drains
  • Water is backing up
  • Multiple and persistent clogs occur
  • Toilets often need plunging
