Sewers and drains have been around for centuries in one form or another, and have allowed civilization to advance by giving clean, potable water along with sanitary waste transportation in
communities. A very important factor that many buildings in the country have in common today is that each of them have some form or pipes, drains and sewer lines. And although our drains are
absolutely imperative to keeping our families and employees comfortable and healthy, many people don't think about the role that drains play or how important regular drain cleaning really is.
Although there are probably types of drains which have gone several decades without being cleaned and still functioned adequately, the vast majority of drains and sewers have to be cleaned, jetted,
serviced and repaired on a semi-regular basis to be able to remain operational. Many years back, drain cleaning was much harder and time intensive than it is today. If an extreme clog or break
occurred in a drain a century ago, the thing a plumber could do was dig to expose the pipe. Today, because of modern drain cleaning technology, we are able to locate, identify and fix pipe problems
faster and, oftentimes, without digging at all.
Modern drain and sewer cleaning equipment includes television video and locating devices, drain snake augers and high-pressure water jetting. Video locating devices allow plumbers to identify
precisely what the problem inside a drain is, from tree root clogs to breakages, and locate where in actuality the repair needs to be made. Drain snake rooters use powerful rotating augers to cut
through tree roots and other clogging agents, and high-pressure drain jetting can literally blast grease and other obstructions out of a drain to get things flowing again.
While many homeowners and business owners would prefer to not think about their main sewer lines, the importance of cleaning and maintaining your drains on a typical basis can't be overstated.
Slow-running, leaking or clogged sewer lines and drains can result in severe and drain cleaning
expensive problems or even addressed in early
stages, especially in places like subterranean basements where flooding and water damage can occur.
