Sewer problems can be messy and take a lot of time to complete. Or at least, that was the way it used to be before trenchless technologies burst onto the scene. With trenchless technology in place, sewer repairs take far less time to complete and are much more efficient and clean. The reasons for these stark distinctions are quite simple, as trenchless methods eliminate the need for excessive digging. The underground pipe remains underground, and a camera is inserted to view what the condition of that pipe is from the inside. Being able to see a pipe from the inside assists in assessing the condition of the pipe as well as locating any problem that are developing in that pipe.
Drains should be cleaned on a regular basis in order to prevent clogs. For most circumstances, once a year is a good estimate of how often drains should be cleaned. However, in commercial settings, you may need to have your drains cleaned more frequently due to the increased use. If you notice a problem with your draining system, you should also call immediately to have it fixed. A clogged drain can cause slow drainage, or may even cause standing water that will not drain at all. Sewage, wastewater, and other waste materials may then back up the pipes and flood the property through any drains. This may expose the entire house or building to harmful bacteria, mold, and diseases, causing a health hazard and possible sickness.
