When you experience problems with drains or toilets in your home, it is likely that a lateral line is blocked. This causes a back-up and sometimes leads to overflow inside and/or outside the home and a good indication that you may need sewer line drain cleaning . The most common causes of line blockage are hardened grease, calcification, tree root intrusion, aging lines, or broken pipes.

Sewers back-up in homes over 700,000 times a year in North America, costing homeowners millions of dollars in damage to their homes and landscaping. In addition to the expense and inconvenience of sewer backup, it creates health risks in the home such as contamination from mold and harmful bacteria.

Identify the Blockage by Sewer Camera

We will run a camera through lateral lines (e.g., kitchen, laundry) and sewer main lines. From here, our plumber will be able to evaluate your needs and recommend the best solution for your specific problem.

Clean the Sewer Pipes

Once the problem and solution are identified, cleaning can begin. Midstate plumbers will clean out all roots and descale any calcite, etc. in order to return the pipe back to its original functioning diameter. They will either jet the lines or use pneumatic tools.
