Don’t Wait for Emergencies: When to Call Professionals for Sewer and Drain Cleaning

It can be tempting to try to tackle drain and sewer problems yourself, but calling a professional is always the best choice. At Rapid Flush, we provide top-quality sewer and drain cleaning services to keep your lines open and working well. Here’s what you need to know about when to call us, how we treat clogs and backups, and how to prevent future issues.

Signs You Need Professional Help

There are several common signs that your sewer or drain needs professional attention. Look out for these symptoms:

  • Toilet won’t flush
  • Drains are backed up and flooding your home
  • Drains emit musty or sewer-like smells
  • Strange noises, such as gurgling or squeaking, come from your drains
  • Drains take a long time to empty after use
  • Plumbing leaks or standing water in your toilet or drains

If you’re experiencing any of these issues, don’t hesitate to contact us for a free inspection.

Our Sewer & Drain Treatments

While at-home remedies might work for minor clogs, it’s best to call in the professionals for more serious issues. At Rapid Flush, we use high-pressure water jets to clean and scour any pipe, ensuring that your drains are clean and flowing. We’ll provide you with a free quote and inspect your drains’ integrity before we begin any work.

How to Prevent Future Drain Issues

To avoid costly sewer and drain problems, regular maintenance is key. Here’s what you can do:

What to Do

If you’re a new homeowner, call us for a deep clean of your drains – you don’t know what went into those drains before you moved in! We also recommend that you have our sewer and drain experts inspect and clean your lines twice a year. To keep your drains healthy, consider using our unique BioPro SRS Powder, which adds bacterial enzymes to your pipes. 

What NOT to Do

To maintain the integrity of your drains, avoid flushing or sending rags, oil, grease, baby wipes, and feminine hygiene products down the drain. Also, steer clear of chemical drain openers, which can damage your pipes and equipment. If you’ve used these chemicals, be sure to let your drain technician know so they can proceed with treatment in the safest way possible.

Don’t wait for an emergency to call in the professionals. Contact us today for a free inspection and quote. With Rapid Flush, your drains will be back to normal in no time.
