Reasons for scheduling sewer line maintenance

  • Reduce strain on home’s plumbing: Blocked drains can cause a plumbing system to work harder to clear out debris or obstructions. Taking care of the sewage system can lighten the strain whenever there is a blockage in the system, increasing the life span of the plumbing system as a whole.
  • Preventing major water damage: When a drain is severely clogged, it can increase the chances of a major problem. Those problems could include flooding inside the house or a sewage leak outside of the home. Major sewer problems can be costly as well. Maintaining sewer lines can be a leading way to prevent such issues.
  • Eliminate bad odors from sewage system: Bacteria and mold can build up in drains if they are not cleaned properly. In addition to a bad smell, some bacteria can create health hazards. Regularly cleaning drains can assist in combating this issue.
