Sewer & Drain Line Cleaning
Sewer Line Cleanout
Serving Portland OR & Vancouver WA
Your sewer main drain is a vital part of your home plumbing system. However, because it is underground, you may not know you have a clog until it’s too late — and sewer drain clogs can be serious. In fact, they may even be considered a plumbing emergency because they can pose health concerns. Fortunately, AAA Drain Cleaning of Portland OR provides quality sewer & drain line cleaning services to help prevent clogs and other issues from occurring.
The Importance of Sewer Line Cleanout
A sewer line cleanout is very important for your drainage system. If your main sewer line experiences a clog, sewage may begin to back up in your plumbing fixtures or in the ground. Sewage is composed of anything that goes down your drains. It contains a lot of bacteria and viruses. So in addition to being smelly, it also creates a health hazard to people, especially if it contaminates groundwater. There are several diseases linked to raw sewage including:
- Hepatitis A
- E. Coli
- And much more!
Is My Main Sewer Line Clogged?
Main sewer drains usually suffer clogs somewhere between your home and the street. And because backups begin at clogs then move up, your lowest drains will start experiencing symptoms first. Below are some common signs your main sewer line may be clogged.
- Several of your plumbing fixtures are clogged: your toilet is usually the first to show symptoms; it may start backing up. Other fixtures include your tub, shower, and washing machine.
- You’re experiencing slow draining
- Unpleasant odors are coming from your drains
- Your plumbing fixtures or drains are making odd sounds
What Do I Do if My Main Sewer Line is Clogged?
If you’ve noticed the signs and you do in fact have a clogged sewer line it’s important that you do not flush your toilets or run any water. Adding water to the drainage system will only make the problem worse. You should shut off the main water supply to your home, then contact a plumbing company like AAA Drain Cleaning. AAA draining has special equipment like video inspection and motorized augers. So I’ll be able to accurately pinpoint the clog and properly treat it, quickly and effectively.
Quality Sewer & Drain Line Cleaning
Properly working plumbing and draining is vital to you and your family. A clog can seriously disrupt your day. If your main sewer line is clogged, it’s important that you know whether you’re responsible for providing sewer & drain line cleaning or if the city is. So I recommend checking with the city before having it serviced. But act quickly, when sewer drains are clogged, sewage will start to back up throughout your plumbing fixtures. And sewage is filled with bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants that are hazardous to your health. Fortunately, AAA Drain Cleaning is here for you, providing quality sewer & drain line cleaning services sure to prevent any clogs and disruptions.
