Floor Drain Clogged

Floor Drain Clogged

Older drains that were cast iron have build up of scale and other deposits as to newer drains get clogged for several other reasons. Newer floor drains get clogged from us living in our homes and enjoying running water to shower, wash clothes and clean dishes. Water that we use goes into and down our pipes into our basements and then out the main line were it eventually ends up in the city sewer.

Floor drains get clogged from hard water build up, food, grease, lint and many other products that we use in our homes on a daily basis. If you have a perfect sewer system and water flows properly you won’t back up as much but should also clean your drains once a year. Just like our cars go in couple times a year for an oil change our drains need their own type of oil change as well.

Got Roots?

Weather your a new or veteran home owner tree roots like below should never be in your sewer line.

This is what our company pulls out of clients sewer lines everyday

Tree roots are poison for your sewer system and you want to hire a professional company to get rid of whatever roots are in your sewer line (depending on the current condition of your line). Cleaning a line is the first step but to determine the condition of the sewer line a camera will have to be put through your line. A camera will show if more cleaning is needed or if you’ll need to set up a repair or in another words excavation. It’s better to know what your up against before, instead of it being a surprise later on at the most inconvenient time. Digging a sewer line isn’t cheap and during the winter months due the frost line it’s even more.

Ken’s Sewer Service has been cleaning sewer line for over 40 years and has an experienced crew with combined knowledge of over 100 years experience. We have different plumbing issues thrown at us each and every day some the same and some not.

Sewer cleaning seems like to you can hire just anyone but good luck with that. Having an experienced technician will not only save you money but will give you future advice and lead you in the right direction. All homes have older, aging sewer lines and repairs from time to time is necessary. Our job is to prolong excavation as long as possible.

New homes that are built don’t always have a new sewer system going from the house to the street. Don’t assume just because it’s a new house it’s a new sewer system. Check the permit records. To go even one step further just because you have a new sewer line doesn’t mean you can neglect cleaning it. It’s just the opposite, since you have a new sewer line this is thee time to take care of it before it does age and break. It’s not hard to clog a sewer line. All is takes is a bad bend or low spot that collects lots of debris or debris that hardens to the walls of the sewer pipe.

If your looking for advice and a good company that’s been around and plans on staying around call Ken’s Sewer Service today!

We look forward to hearing from you.

Stop putting ANY chemicals down your drains

Time after time again we tell clients and future customers to stop putting any sort of chemical products down any of their drain lines. Most the time it just ends badly and ends up costing the owner of the property more money. Yesterday we received a service call that the homeowner said they poured two bottles of chemicals down their kitchen sink drain and the line didn’t open. Then they had a friend come over and try helping them out and he didn’t accomplish anything further. All they did was make their expense higher and our time harder.

We ended up unclogging their drain and repairing sections of pipe. Which meant on this job opening up walls and ceilings.
