Signs You Need Main Line Cleaning

If you’re like most people, then you probably don’t think about your sewer line very often. That can make it challenging to identify potential problems before they lead to major malfunctions. To catch issues early, keep an eye out for these signs that your main line needs professional service:
  • Foul odors coming from your drains
  • Frequent clogs or water backups
  • Gurgling sounds coming from your pipes
  • Sudden spike in your water bill
  • Soggy grass above your sewer line

Tips for Maintaining Your Sewer Line

Every household will need to clean their main line regularly to eliminate buildup and ensure the pipes are in good condition. However, there are a few ways that you can keep your system in good shape between professional visits. Here are some of the most common sewer line problems and how you can avoid them:

  • Tree root invasions: Plant roots are one of the leading causes of main line clogs, leaks, and damage. While you can’t necessarily control the direction of root growth, you can reduce your risk by not landscaping near your main line.
  • Improperly flushed items: Sewer lines are not designed to handle large items such as paper towels, wet napkins, feminine hygiene products, and diapers. Accidentally flushing improper items puts you at risk of a major clog or backup, so keep an eye on what goes down the drain.
  • Fats, oils, and greases (FOG): FOG can wreak havoc on your pipes. Though these substances are liquid while warm, they will harden and congeal as they cool. If they make it down to your main line, they could block your pipes and lead to a massive blockage or backup.

Most households should have their sewer line cleaned at least once every 1-2 years. That said, you may need to invest in more frequent maintenance if your system is old or regularly dealing with a high volume of wastewater.

Professional sewer line cleaning generally costs between $200 and $600. If our technicians notice any damage that requires additional repairs or services, then we will provide you with a no-obligation quote outlining our recommendations.

Many homeowners are tempted to DIY their sewer main cleaning to save money. However, when it comes to your sewer system, cutting costs is almost never worth it. Not only is sewer cleaning a difficult job, but it also requires specialized equipment and knowledge. Poor workmanship could leave your pipes dirty or damaged, resulting in even bigger problems than before. For that reason, we always recommend investing in professional sewer cleaning from qualified technicians.

Professional sewer line cleaning typically takes 1-5 hours to complete. Problems such as clogs, tree root invasions, and damage can all increase the amount of time it takes for our experts to thoroughly inspect and clean your system.
