Who Do You Call When You Have a Clogged Drain?Posted by Brian Wood in Blog, on March 1, 2017
As a homeowner, you’re proud of your home and what it represents. At the same time, as all homeowners discover sooner or later, all repairs and emergencies are also your responsibility. Drains will clog, dishwashers will overflow, and tree roots will tangle with the underground pipes and sewers, causing leaks and even structural damage. A reliable plumbing and rooter service can help you deal with all of these problems, many even before they actually get started.
Emergencies and repairs
Most people only ever see the rooter service in an emergency situation, when they find that they have clogged toilets or a dishwasher that’s flooding the kitchen. Quite often, trying to fix the problem yourself only makes it worse.
A local clogged drain service that responds to emergency calls can feel like a lifesaver. That’s why rooter service techs are used to getting a warn welcome wherever they go. Kitchens, bathrooms and even basements are surprisingly important to the overall functioning of a house, as many people discover the hard way.
Drain cleaning and inspections
Especially for older houses, preemptive drain cleaning and repairs can help to prevent future problems. Drain repair and replacement technology has come a long way, and it’s no longer necessary to dig up the entire basement and yard just to get at the problem. Rooter services can even install new drains with minimal digging.
Rooter services use new technology like video inspections and hydro water jetting to identify problems and clear clogs. This is much simpler and less messy than the old ways of handling drain inspections and repairs. The new methods can make it much easier to keep your drains clean and leak free. Your local rooter service offers many such services, including:
-Residential and commercial drain cleaning
-Septic system rejuvenation
-Clogged sinks and toilets
-Showers and floor drains
-Sewer line repair and installation
-Electric pipe inspection
-Tree root damage
In short, they can handle almost any problem that you can imagine, and many that you can’t.
Sewer replacement without digging
For older houses, sewer systems may need to be replaced. Even if there aren’t any visible problems, you may notice puddles of water forming in the basement or yard. These are indications that the sewers may be leaking. Not only is this water a health hazard for you and your family, it weakens the foundations of your house.
If it does turn out that the sewer system needs to be replaced, you’ll be glad to learn that it can now be done with a minimum of digging and disruption. The new lines are just installed inside the old pipes, and cured in place. This is much quicker than the older method as well, and there very little mess and debris to clean up.
Drains and sewer systems play an essential role in making a house habitable. Finding a reliable rooter service can make your job as a homeowner much easier.
