Sewer Cleaning Near Phoenix

The sewer line isn’t a part of your plumbing system that you think about often, and most of the time you won’t have to worry about it performing its important job of removing the collected wastewater from your home to the municipal sewer main in the street. However, sewer lines can start to develop build-up, eventually leading to serious issues that can include the sewer system backing up and allowing wastewater to flood into the basement or the foundations of your home.

To prevent problems from a blocked or inefficient sewer system, schedule sewer cleaning in Phoenix, AZ with professional plumbers. Call The Trusted Plumber and talk to our drain and sewer specialists to arrange for this important service today.

Signs You Need to Clean Your Sewer

The sewer line that serves your home lies in a trench under your property where you cannot see it. You will have to look for warning signs that the space in the sewer line is narrowing or even blocked so you know to call a sewer cleaner.

  • Multiple Slow and Backed–Up Drains: When a single drain in your home becomes clogged or slow, it usually means a problem in the drainpipe. But if you notice slow draining or clogs in the sinks of more than one room in the house, the issue likely runs deeper—down into the sewer line itself. Do not hesitate when something like this occurs: call for sewer cleaning from professionals.
  • Drainage at the Sewer Clean Out: Homes built after the late ‘70s will have a sewer clean out, a pipe with a rubber cap that permits sewer line access for cleaning. The clean out for your home is probably located at the side of the house among the foliage. (You can ask a plumber to help you find it.) If you unscrew the cap and find wastewater standing in the line, it means the sewer line is starting to back up and needs cleaning.
  • Sewer Odors in the House: As the sewer line narrows due to build–up, sewer gas will start to back up into your home through the drains, pushing up through the water in the p–trap. Should this start to happen, it will not be long before actual sewage starts to back up, so have cleaning done as soon as possible.

How Professionals Handle Sewer Cleaning

You can’t clean out your home’s sewer system yourself (and, be honest, you don’t want to). You have to summon the services of professionals with the right tools to do the job. Rooters are the most common piece of equipment used for the job, able to punch through thick clogs to restore the flow through the line. But one of the best methods used is the hydro–jetter. This device pressurized hot water blasted out through nozzles to thoroughly cleanse the particles that build up along the sewer walls with scouring action. Hydro–jetting can achieve the same cleaning power as rooters without posing any risk to damaging the pipe.
