Houston Sewer Lines & Excavation Services

Importance of Sewer Lines Maintenance

The best response to a sewer line emergency is to avoid the problem altogether. Roto-Rooter offers regular sewer cleaning to Houston homes and businesses. Routine maintenance cleaning prevents clogs, sewer line backups, and costly repairs. A regular sewer cleaning schedule keeps grease and debris out of the pipeline and tree roots at bay, preventing them from growing, spreading, and further damaging pipe joints or voids. Sewer line issues can often be identified during regular cleanings. An experienced sewer and drain technician recognizes problems by the way the drain cleaning cable behaves inside the pipe. If a serious problem is suspected, he may suggest a video inspection of the pipeline that will allow you to see the condition of your sewer pipe displayed on a video screen as the camera snake travels through the pipeline. Addressing minor issues before they become serious problems is smart and cost-effective.
