Every home and office building is made up of a network of pipes that carry water in and out of the structure. However, the vast majority of the time it is the pipes that carry waste water out of the building that cause the most problems if they are not maintained properly. It is very important to have your sewage or septic system inspected by a professional plumbing technician on a regular basis to ensure that it functions well and does not develop expensive repair problems later on. In addition, it is wise to have professional Sewer Cleaning once or twice a year for the following very important reasons.

Keep Water Flowing Freely

One of the most important reasons for cleaning your sewer often is that it helps to keep water flowing freely through your plumbing network. Clear and clean pipes allow waste water to travel quickly through pipes and out through drains to septic tanks or public sewage lines. However, over time various elements build up on sewer walls such as grease, dirt and other things that clog the lines and slow or completely stop the flow of water. Cleaning sewer lines on a regular basis keeps water flowing properly and dramatically reduces the chance of problems such as back-flow or flooding damage.

Eliminate Foul Drain Odors

Another important reason for cleaning out sewer drains relates to the impact doing so has on the way the sewer and drainage system smells. The substances contained in waste water typically attract bacteria and mold when they adhere to the walls of drain pipes and sewage lines. The action of bacteria on old grease, oils, food, hair and other materials that go down into drains leads to very foul odors that can waft up through open drains and make life unpleasant for everyone inside the building. Cleaning sewer lines thoroughly and on a consistent basis removes the buildup that causes this problem and leaves your system odor free.

These are a few of the most important reasons to utilize professional Sewer Cleaning in your home or office building.
