Am I in Need of Sewer Cleaning Services?

When you think of the cleaning that you need to get done around your home, we’re guessing that cleaning out your sewer line is not on that list, nor should it be. Sewer cleaning in Bloomington, IL is the type of job that only a professional plumber can handle. Not only do we have the tools and equipment that we need in order to thoroughly and effectively clean your sewer line for you, but we also have the training and skills necessary to use those tools and that equipment properly. You just need to recognize that your sewer line needs cleaning, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Does My Sewer Need to Be Cleaned?

Determining if your sewer needs to be cleaned out can be a bit tricky. After all, it’s not as though you can simply peer into your sewer line in order to determine if it needs to be cleaned–not that you’d want to do so even if you could, of course. However, there are many different warning signs that may alert you to the need for drain cleaning.

You just have to know what it is that you are looking for. If, for instance, your toilet is frequently backing up, or leaves anything behind when you flush it, your sewer line may need to be cleaned out. The same is true of slow-moving or clogged drains. It may be a shallow clog in the drain line, but if all of your drains are acting up, and issue in the sewer line is more likely. Also, take note of foul odors emanating from your drains or toilet. If you smell any, cleaning your sewer line out may be required to get rid of them.

How Does it Work?

We don’t believe in guesswork around here, which is why we utilize a sewer camera for sewer line inspections. If we find a clog, or if your sewer line is covered with buildup on its surfaces, we can move forward with cleaning it out. While clearing a clog with an auger may be possible, nothing really beats the benefits of hydro-jetting your sewer line to truly clean and scour its sides.
