Most people don’t want to think about cleaning their sewer, but like any other type of utility, it requires service from time to time.
Your drain line system is like a tree, and where all the fixtures are the leaves, the sewer is the trunk. It has the biggest job in the whole plumbing system, handling water, hair, grease, food particles, and other residue that travels through your sewer line.
Signs You Need Sewer Cleaning
Your home's sewer system isn't something you typically think about on a day to day basis. If you are ankle deep in water in your shower, it's probably a good sign that your main sewer line may be having some problems.
Below are 3 signs to look for in order to avoid a potential nightmare scenario:
- Slow Drains -
One of the number one signs that your sewer is in need of cleaning is if you notice that your drains are not properly draining. If your plumbing is draining slowly, it could be your sewer line is clogged and needs a cleanout.
- Bad Smells -
A toilet can sometimes smell odd. But, if you are noticing a smell of sewage coming from your toilet, you should have a plumber come and check that out. If you are smelling the odor of sewage, you may have a drain problem which would require our professional plumbers to help.
- Flooding Around Your Yard -
If you have a clog somewhere in your main sewer line, the water is unable to go down, so it will most likely find ways to pool around your lawn and yard. If you notice standing water on your lawn and it hasn't rained in a while or you haven't watered your yard for a day two, it's possible that something is wrong with your sewer drainage system.
“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.
Where Problems Start In Your Sewer
If the sewer line is blocked in any way, the water in it has nowhere to go except to the lowest opening in your plumbing system—usually somewhere in your basement like a shower, toilet, laundry sink, or floor drain. When it backs up, you know. This wastewater can be messy and smelly.
The good news is there is something that you can do to prevent this situation. It’s called preventive sewer line cleaning. Our Mamaroneck sewer cleaning team can provide you with sewer cleaning services to keep your drains working properly.

What Causes Sewer and Drain Clogs?
Sewer drain clogs occur when obstructions in a drain prevent it from doing its job. A clog can exist in a single drain, or it can be in the main sewer line.
If only a single toilet or sink is acting up, the clog is probably in that particular drain, and can usually be addressed locally.
On the other hand, if all such appliances are refusing to drain quickly, are making noises, or smell bad, then the clog exists in the mainline.
How Often Should Sewer Lines Be Cleaned?
Sewer lines should be cleaned regularly to keep them in good working condition and prevent clogs.
The frequency of cleaning depends on factors like the size of the sewer system, the number of people using it, and the environment.
Generally, it's recommended to clean sewer lines every 1 to 3 years. This regular maintenance helps remove debris, sediment, and potential blockages that can build up over time.
By keeping the sewer lines clean, you can avoid backups and costly repairs, ensuring that wastewater flows smoothly.
Wecan handle just about any drain clog there is. In the Wykagyl section of New Rochelle, for example, this picturesque neighborhood is renowned for its natural beauty which includes many large trees. This resident has a very aggressive growing tree in front of their home. The roots grow into the sewer line at such a rate that the mainline will clog every seven to eight months if not cleaned regularly. This particular basement has been beautifully finished, so it goes without saying that a sewer backup is particularly inconvenient. The good news that we clean the line on a bi-annual schedule, cutting out the tree roots before they can cause a messy sewer back up.
