Tips for Preventing Drain and Sewer Issues

Drain and sewer systems really are not all that complicated, though they do require professional installation and servicing. While certain environmental factors may lead to issues with your drain and sewer system, we’ve found that simple user error is often to blame for such problems as well. By taking a few simple steps, you can great reduce the risk of encountering drain and sewer issues. Use drain guards when doing the dishes, for instance, and remember to clean your whiskers out of the sink after shaving, rather than flushing them down the drain. Also, remember that not everything can go down your garbage disposal. Keep liquid fats and grease out of your drains, as they will congeal and lead to clogs once they’ve cooled.

Signs of Trouble with Your Drain and Sewer System

The mistake that many homeowners make in dealing with their drain and sewer system is simply ignoring what are fairly obvious signs of trouble. If you are running into frequently clogged or slow–moving drains, for instance, don’t just stand around waiting for the tub to clear or pour harsh chemicals in the drain. Hire a professional to resolve the problem. You can avoid further complications in doing so. If you smell the familiar and unpleasant odor of sewage in your home or on your property, or you notice that a certain patch of your lawn is looking a bit extra–fertilized, make sure that you have a professional plumber investigate matters. Your sewer line may be compromised. When in doubt, dial our number to have the situation professionally assessed.

Drain Cleaning

Your first inclination upon discovering a backed up or slow–moving drain may be to run out to the local hardware store in order to pick up a chemical cleaner. We strongly urge you to reconsider doing so. Instead, hire a professional on our staff thoroughly clean your drains for outstanding results.

Drain Repair

When your drains are damaged, you quickly realize just how dependent upon them you truly are.
