Bloomington, MN Sewer Cleaning

Call RooterWorks for Professional Minneapolis Sewer Cleaning

Since problems with your sewer line can potentially impact your entire plumbing system, it’s important to consult an experienced, knowledgeable plumbing company like RooterWorks to ensure that your sewer line is cleaned when necessary. Sewer cleaning is a key preventative measure that can spare your wallet from expensive repairs or a premature need for sewer replacement.

We strongly recommend that you call for sewer cleaning if you experience:

  • Chronic clogging
  • Frequent sewer backups
  • Unpleasant odors coming from drains
  • Flooding in your basement or yard
  • Slow drains throughout the home
  • You use one fixture and another fixture begins to overflow

Why Does My Sewer Line Keep Backing Up?

Does it seem like your home is constantly dealing with slow sink drains or backed up toilets? The issue probably isn't the drain itself, but a blockage or area of damage within your sewer line. Sewer line backups can largely be prevented by being mindful of what can and cannot go down your drains.

Home sewer line backups are commonly caused by the following:

  • Tree root intrusion. Believe it or not, tree roots are strong enough to break open sewer pipes in search of water. They can also wrap themselves around pipes and crush them.
  • Flushing trash down the toilet. Toilets are made to dispose of human waste and toilet paper - nothing else. Although "flushable" wipes are all the rage right now, they are the culprit behind many serious clogs and should actually never be flushed.
  • Putting the wrong things down the garbage disposal. It's called a "garbage" disposal, but you actually have to be careful about what you put into it. Always avoid putting fruit and vegetable peels, coffee grounds, egg shells, and large quantities of starchy foods like pasta and rice down your sink.
  • Grease and oil buildup. Never pour oil, grease, or fats down your drain - over time, they build up inside of your pipes and can cause a blockage. Instead, pour them into a jar and dispose of them in the trash.

Give us a call to schedule an assessment of your drain system. We can help you determine whether sewer cleaning can solve your drainage problems or if sewer repair or replacement is necessary.

How Often Should You Have Your Sewer Lines Cleaned?

Cleaning out the sewer line is not something that most people have at the forefront of their minds — after all, out of sight, out of mind. It doesn't get a lot of attention until the sewer line backs up, but by then the problem is much bigger than a cleaning or maintenance issue. To avoid a potential plumbing catastrophe, it's a good idea to have your sewer cleaned about every two years. However, if you're experiencing any of the warning signs listed above, make sure to call us sooner rather than later to schedule an inspection.
