When Should You Hire a Sewer Cleaning Service?
While you may want to simply have a sewer line cleaning service come for preemptive cleanings to avoid any major issues and minimize any potential property damage, most people will tend to reach out for the service when an issue arises. Some of the common sewer problems a sewer cleaning service deals with include:
- Grease blockages
- Clogged and blocked sewer lines
- Cutting intruding roots
- Removing build up of debris
- Frequent flooding from sewer backup
- Sewer odors
Sanitary Sewer Cleaning Process
Using our vacuum truck fleet, our primary method of storm drain cleaning is through high pressure water jets that can easily break up debris. Our Jet Vac services are designed for a number of difference uses and include high flow vacuum technology on top of the high pressure water jets. There are a number of benefits to the sanitary sewer cleaning process we use.
- Remove blockages
- Reduce potentially harmful bacteria growth
- Prevent soil erosion
- Prevent flooding
Hydro jetting is a method used by professionals to clean clogged or blocked sewer lines. A blast of high pressure water is sent into the sewer lines that is usually strong enough to remove any blockages or build ups.
Before moving forward with hydro jetting, a video inspection is typically performed in order to determine the cause of the sewer line problem, and where the blockage is happening within the pipe. If tree roots are a problem, the high pressure should cut through them. However, a snake may need to be used first to tear up heavy roots. Hydro jetting will not solve problems with broken pipes and could cause weakened areas to break. In addition, a video inspection can reduce the possibility of sewage back flushing into other areas.
How Much Does Sewer Cleaning Cost?
There is no fixed cost for sewer cleaning, and finding out how much a sewer cleaning job will cost requires diagnosing the extent of buildup within a sewer line. Typically, a sewer cleaning will include a video camera inspection of the inside of the pipes in order to provide an estimate of the cost. On top of the level of buildup, the size of a sewer line will also factor into the final cost of sewer cleaning services.
Is Sewer Cleaning a Homeowner’s Responsibility?
In New Jersey, sanitary sewer cleaning is the responsibility of the township for main sewer lines, but any pipes that are located on private property (meaning the pipes connecting the main line to your home fixture) are your responsibility as the homeowner.
