  • Scaling

  • Tree roots

  • Blockages from improper usage


Having regular sewer and drain cleaning services performed on your home or commercial building removes obstructions and keeps your lines clear year-round. Not only does regular maintenance prevent blockages and help you avoid major disruptions, but it also improves the health of your drain lines and increases the life of your entire plumbing system.


If you have a sudden plumbing problem, we are available 24/hours to get you scheduled for emergency service ASAP. Our professional technicians can quickly assess the problem and deliver quality service. Whether it’s a hand sink, toilet, or main line, we come in fully stocked trucks prepared with everything we need to clean your sewer line the first time.


With our self-leveling HD camera inspection, we will be able to determine the cause of the clog and provide you with a descriptive report. We will then recommend which drain cleaning method is necessary to clear your sewer and drain line effectively.


We perform the following sewer and drain cleaning techniques:

Sewer Cabling

Sewer cabling (popularly known as drain snaking or rooter service) involves running a long, flexible cable through your sewer line. With this tried-and-true cleaning method, the technician drives the cable through the drain until the cutter reaches the clog. Then they rotate the cable to grab and break through the clog, collecting the bigger bits. The cable is then carefully removed from the drain and the clog material is disposed of. We use various sized cables to fit in and clear all types of drains.

Hydro Jetting

Hydro jetting involves sending a controlled stream of high-pressure water into the plumbing system, usually through the cleanout opening. Hydro jetting is often used in routine maintenance but some sewer lines or especially stubborn clogs that cannot be cleared by a traditional drain snake cable may need this cleaning method performed instead. 


A hydro jetter has a large tank of water, a high-pressure hose with a high-strength nozzle, and a machine that pressurizes the water in the hose. The pressurized water is sprayed out of the nozzle into the cleanout opening and travels through your plumbing system, without damaging the integrity of your pipes. The water works upstream clearing debris, buildup, and even tree roots, which then flow down the clean drainage path.


If your pipes have been penetrated by tree roots, they might require repair or replacement. If they go unfixed, you will likely experience repeated clogs and backups due to more tree roots breaking through the cracks in your pipes.


Residential Sewer Cleanout

The bathroom is arguably one of the most used rooms in a home, and having a non-functioning toilet, sink, shower, or bathtub can certainly disrupt your family’s daily life. The kitchen is likely just as important to your family, so if the kitchen sink stops working as it should, it can also cause major issues. When all of the drains in your home seem to be having problems, the clog is likely in the main sewer line. If your home’s plumbing system is suffering from a clogged sewer or drain, our team can handle all of your drain cleaning needs, even the most stubborn clogs!


Signs you may need your home’s sewer line or drain cleaned include:


  • Your sink, shower, or bathtub is draining too slowly

  • Your sink, shower, or bathtub is filled with standing water/not draining at all

  • Your sink, shower, or bathtub is covered with a dirty residue

  • You run one sink in your home and a different sink fills with dirty water

  • Your toilet water will not go down when you flush


Commercial Drain and Sewer Cleaning

If you own or operate a restaurant, commercial kitchen, food processing facility, or other similar business, you understand the importance of having a clear, well-functioning plumbing system. When fats, oils, and grease (FOG) are washed down sinks or floor drains, they can quickly build up in pipes, resulting in clogs, poor drainage, and sewer backups. These issues can ultimately lead to expensive damage and repairs, as well as having to shut down operations. Regular grease trap maintenance will help prevent FOG buildup in sewer lines, but clogs can still happen. Your business’ public restrooms can also be a potential problem area when toys or other foreign objects get flushed down the toilet and cause a blockage or backup. Clogs in a sink drain, floor drain, kitchen drain, toilet pipe, or sewer line should be resolved immediately.


Our professional, high-quality sewer and drain cleaning services are performed with the least amount of disruption possible and can help keep your business healthy and operating productively!


How to Prevent Drain Clogs

In addition to using drain covers in your shower and kitchen sink, many clogs can be prevented by keeping the following out of your home or commercial building’s plumbing system:


  • Thick paper

  • Paper towels

  • Flushable wipes

  • Personal care products

  • Cotton balls

  • Toys and small objects

  • Coffee grounds

  • Eggshells

  • Grease and cooking oil

  • Powdered products that act like glue
