“I had a problem with a clogged drain that the usual Do It Yourself approach would not resolve. TJ showed up on time, quickly diagnosed the problem, and cleared the drain pipe. Communications from the Get Go were top notch and professional, and TJ was easy to work with making sure we understood the how the job would be done. We are very picky about contractors we use and TJ has more than earned a spot on out list of people we would work with again as well as recommend to friends.”Bob F.
Causes of a Clogged Sewer Line
Depending on the type of service your property provides, your sewer system could become clogged for a myriad of reasons. The simple act of pouring a drain cleaning solution into the sewer line may not always be the best solution. In fact, doing so may further clog the drain! If your commercial property’s sewer line has become clogged, reach out to our Westchester County technicians as soon as you can.
Common causes of a clogged sewer line include:
- Tree roots: If there are any trees close to the sewer line on your property, you run the risk of the roots growing into your pipes.
- Food waste: Food preparation is paramount to every restaurant. If your employees are disposing of grease or other food byproducts by pouring them down the drain, your system could become clogged.
- Bathroom waste: Inorganic bathroom waste can be a major cause of commercial sewer line problems. For example, flushing feminine products down the toilet can cause a clog.
- Sagging sewer line: A sewer line uses gravity to move water from your property to the municipal sewer. The line is sloped to ensure the movement of water from one area to the next. Over time the soil surrounding the line can shift, causing the piping to shift as well, which could negatively affect the flow of wastewater.
