Your home’s sewer and drain lines are vulnerable to anything you toss into them. While the water pressure found in most homes will flush away all your dirty business with no issues, over time your sewer and drain lines can become clogged with fats, grease, hair, food particles, and anything else you toss into your drains and not properly into a trash can.
When clogs and backups get to be too much for your system, your whole house can be at risk of overflow and backups. You will need sewer and drain cleaning to avoid this mess.
Sewer and drain cleaning is the process of inspecting sewer and drains for clogs, damage, and leaks, and cleaning out those issues for a healthy sewer and drain system. Sewer and drain cleaning is a must if you think your system may be backing up or have leaks, and Blue River can help.

Sewer Line Problems & Repair
It’s helpful to be able to see the problem to get the problem fixed. We utilize a camera and video device to crawl deep into your plumbing lines to find the issue. With camera inspection, you can avoid guesswork, incomplete cleanings, and cameras lower the cost of the cleaning job overall.
We also take this time to examine the pipes of your system and check for corrosion, leaks, and other damage. If we’re down there with the camera, we might as well check everything out.
Once the problem (or problems) are found and isolated, the cleaning can begin. A variety of techniques are utilized to clear and clean the problem area depending on the type of issue and the kind of plumbing, but for the most part, we use mechanical removal methods (auger) as well as high-pressure steam cleaning. These will take care of the issue with minimal damage to the existing plumbing or the local environment.
You don’t have to have an active clog to have your lines cleaned either. Cleaning can be both a reactive measure and a proactive measure to keep lines from clogging in the first place. Cleaning can also help extend the life of existing sewer and drain lines.
If you have clogs, backups, or think your sewer or drain lines need help, get us out there before it turns into an important issue. We can take care of the problem with expertise and experience, and all at a fair price to you.
