Affordable Plumbing and Heat can inspect your sewer lines first to locate the source of any back-ups or clogs that may be causing a slow drain or a sewage back-up on your property. You may not even know you need to have your sewer line regularly cleaned or inspected.
Signs That Your Drain Lines Need To Be Cleaned By Professionals
Here are some signs that may mean your sewer line needs to be inspected and cleaned:
- Slow drains in more than one of your sinks, toilets, tubs, or showers
- Backups or clogs that appear when in one part of your home when the water is being used at another part.
- Foul smells that cannot be located
Affordable Plumbing and Heat can provide emergency sewer and drain cleaning services if a clog or back-up is preventing you from using the water or plumbing fixtures in your home. First we can inspect the line using our videoscope technology. This allows us to pinpoint the source of the clog. A sewer scope is beneficial because once we see what is causing the backup we can make the necessary steps to clean out the sewer.
Many times the culprit of a sewer backup is tree roots. This is especially true if you live in an older home. Roots and shrubs will naturally look for any water source. To keep this from happening, routine maintenance is a good idea to help prevent any problems before it leads to an even bigger issue.

If you are experiencing these types of problems you likely need to have your sewer line or drain inspected and cleaned using a Hydrojet. Or perhaps the problem is more serious and requires sewer pipe repair or excavation.
Affordable Plumbing and Heat has experienced plumbers and technicians that can take care of these types of problems. Do not attempt this type of work on your own we have all the equipment, tools and expertise to make sure the job is done right the first time. Our video camera technology allows us to pinpoint the clog right at the source. If we determine that the drain can be cleared with our hydrojet equipment we will take care of it.
Hydro Jetting is a process that cleans sewer lines quickly and efficiently utilizing high-velocity water pressure. Powerful streams of high-pressure water, emitting from the forward and reverse jets in the nozzle, propel the hose through the line. As the nozzle and hose turn, debris such as scale, silt, sand, and grease is blasted free and washed away.

The Benefits of Hydro Jetting

Removes dangerous blocks The power of the pressurized water can even clear out tree roots and other serious blocks when necessary.
Preventative Drain Line Maintenance & Care In Denver Homes
There are various ways to help avoid a sewer backup that homeowners can take as preventative maintenance outside of standard drain cleaning sessions, including:
Install a catch-all One major reason drains clog up — especially bathroom sinks, bathtubs, and showers — is because of hair. A catch-all helps prevent the hair from going down the drains.
Only flush toilet paper down toilets Avoid things such as paper towels, wipes, and feminine hygiene products.
Keep the kitchen sink clean Do not put things such as cooking oil or coffee grounds down the kitchen sink. Cooking oil sticks to the pipes, clogging the drains, and it could lead to a bigger issue.
Regular sewer and drain cleaning is an important preventative maintenance step that every homeowner, business owner, and property manager should perform to ensure that sewer line back-ups and clogs do not cause you an unnecessary headache.
Maybe your shower starts to gurgle and overflow when your flush the toilet. It is quite likely that you have a clog in your sewer line that is not allowing the water to escape into the sewer line. If this is the case the water will find an escape elsewhere and this is when sewer back-ups can occur.
