The last two weeks during the heavy melting and rain storm we got hundreds of calls from clients who had flooded basements and clogged drain lines. We have never seen such a panic before. We know that if you don’t need to spend money then why do so. What homeowners need to understand, is that drain cleaning maintenance is no different then getting a haircut or having an oil change on your car. It just needs to be scheduled, unless your drain clogs up before hand. Our clients that had the worst flooding in their homes and commercial buildings were the ones that did not schedule maintenance on their drain lines before the heavy melting.
Main sewer lines are the service to the city main line that carries everything we put down our drains. If these drains have any issues (and most do) then a major back-up can happen when you least expect it. The average property damage we saw in the last couple weeks was well over four thousand dollars.
It still is not to late to schedule service on one of the following:
- Main sewer line cleaning
- Floor drain and trap cleaning
- Laundry tub cleaning
- Sump pump tests
- Camera sewer line inspections
Spring has arrived and just started which normally means heavy rain fall is coming. Keep in mind just because your property did not get affected by the melting the last couple weeks this does not mean that you will not be affected coming up. All it takes is one discharge some evening of your water softener to flood and ruin your basement. Check your basement daily and be the best home owner you can be.

Nasty, Right? Read below and let’s stop this from happening to your property.
Let’s start off and state that tree roots are not an obsession but they are important to get rid of each and every year. It’s our job as the industry to advise homeowners especially newer younger first time homeowners, that cleaning the main sewer line is just as important as getting the oil changed in your car. Without oil or very low amounts of oil, your car will not run and even worse off may need major repairs. Same like tree-root growth inside ones sewer system that we can’t visually see. In life when things aren’t seen their forgotten about entirely. In every sewer line weather new or old roots will find there way inside your line. Tree roots will wiggle and squeeze their way inside the tiniest of cracks and seams to find their water source. Once they obstruct the sewer system and get in the potential in growth is comparable to a weed in your garden. Cutting out tree roots each year is the same as getting your oil checked. Roots will destroy and break your sewer system pipe so keep up on your yearly maintenance and call us today!
Are you water gambling?
This phrase “water gambling” came to me in my sleep. I had a dream that I was wasting water from my bathroom sink faucet and that I received a bill that was out of this world. Everyone gambles their money in their own way. But what I don’t understand is why waste your money and our natural resources and on a simple fix?
It boggles my mind that when an individual has a plumbing problem they either act quickly to resolve it or they wait until they can’t stand it anymore (which at that point ends up costing more).
Plumbing issues in general don’t get better then only get worse. Ask yourself do we “humans” get better? The answer is sadly no. Sinks, toilets, bathtubs, faucets, sump pump, water heaters and softeners, and all drain lines break and need repair and some point. Individuals that try and tackle a plumbing or drain cleaning problem normally end up making the issue worse off. When your car breaks down you fix it, when your garage door doesn’t open anymore you fix it, when your refrigerator stops running you replace it, and when you have a pain that irritates you to know end you see a doctor. We receive several calls everyday from clients that have tried to repair there issue and they ended up just costing them more money.
If you want to go gamble for fun that’s fine but don’t “water gamble” your money away cause it goes fast.
