Signs That Your Sewer & Drains Need to be Cleaned

Our Sewer & Drain Cleaning Process

Our sewer and drain cleaning experts use cutting edge techniques and custom built technologies to clear your drains and minimize any repair costs that might be necessary. We start by visiting your commercial or residential property and provide you with a free, no-obligation diagnosis, a service recommendation, and a quote to fix the issue. Once the quote is approved, we will first open the clogged line, then, if possible, conduct a thorough video inspection of your system to determine the underlying cause of the issue and address other potential recommendations that might be necessary to fix or prevent problems from happening in the future.

Sewer & Drain Cleaning Solutions

Aging or deteriorating drain lines, broken pipes, foreign objects, grease build-up, and roots in sewer lines can cause tough recurring clogs and prevent your sewer or drain from working properly. No matter the cause of your backup, Rapid Flush offers a solution for every commercial and residential sewer or drain problem.

Drain Inspecting & Locating

When the state, condition, and location of your commercial or residential property’s sewer and drain pipes are unknown, Rapid Flush can provide a variety of video inspection and utility locating and mapping services. This process precisely identifies the core issue needing to be fixed, its exact location, and the best approach to take in solving it before breaking ground, so you can save thousands of dollars.

Drain & Sewer Cleaning

Pipes naturally accumulate build-up that can cause drain and sewer lines to slow or clog over time. Most often, stoppages are caused by tree roots, grease, hair, “flushable wipes.” and sanitary wipes. Most often, stoppages are caused by tree roots, grease, hair, “flushable wipes.” and sanitary wipes. On occasion, you may even find foreign objects such as sticks, leaves, construction materials, cement, rags, toys, etc. in your pipes. From plugged sewers and kitchen sinks to bathroom and washer drains, using our specialty, custom-made machines and high-pressure water jets, we can open any drain! 

Root Control

Tree roots seek out moisture and nutrients in sewer lines, which contributes to roots being a major cause of sewer and drain stoppages. If you’re experiencing blockages due to tree roots, Rapid Flush can safely and effectively remove the roots from your sewer or septic line and apply the Vaporooter herbicide which is used by over 2,300 municipalities throughout the U.S to control roots in community sewers — for good!

Grease Annihilation

Especially helpful for commercial property owners, our Grease Annihilation Program effectively eliminates grease, oil, soap, and fat build-up from your drain lines with a high-pressure water jet and a potent mixture of bacteria and enzymes. Our advanced processes keep your drains clean and running smoothly, eliminating the potential for clogs to reoccur.

FAQs About Sewer & Drain Services

Sewer lines and drains can become clogged for several reasons. Aging drain lines, broken pipes, natural material accumulation — like hair in shower drains — foreign objects such as rags or toys, grease build-up, and tree roots are all causes of drain blockages. Our team of sewer and drain experts routinely open drains that other companies can’t and are able to remove even the most stubborn clogs.
Sometimes, at-home remedies are not enough to unclog drains or sewers and can even cause more damage to your pipes. That’s where our team of experts comes in. We will precisely diagnose your problem, perform video inspections of your drain to identify the cause and location of the issue, and make recommendations that will restore flow to your systems and keep your drains running smoothly for years to come.
As our reviews will attest, Rapid Flush offers some of the most reasonable and competitive rates in the industry. Prices for drain and sewer cleaning vary widely depending on the design of your drainage system, its accessibility, where your drain or sewer is located, what is causing the problem, and the machines and processes it requires to fix.
Because of each system’s complexity, it is impossible to offer an accurate quote over the phone, site-unseen. Beware of this when receiving a quote over the phone — some companies may offer a low estimate to entice an appointment but increase prices drastically once on location. However, our professional technicians provide a free on-site diagnosis and price quote with no obligation before any work is done. Only after we receive your approval on the quote provided, will we begin the service.
If unforeseen circumstances or pivots cause changes to the quotes that we have provided to you, our team will notify you immediately, update you with a revised quote, and proceed only with your approval. Rest assured that we are committed to providing the best value for services in the sewer and drain cleaning industry!
Our team of experts will clean any commercial or residential sewer and drain line including, but not limited to, sewer lines, septic tanks, kitchen sink drains, bathroom sink drains, floor drains, bathtub drains, clogged toilets, washer standpipes, vent lines, sump pump lines, garbage disposals, swimming pool lines, drain field lines, and more! If you have any questions about a drain line you need to clean, contact our team to schedule a free consultation.

New or healthy drains that are not experiencing problems need no preventative service. Lines with a history of backups caused by roots, grease, or low spots in a line, on the other hand, may benefit from having preventative maintenance cleanings to avoid emergency service calls. This can save money and time, and prevent clean-ups. The cost or frequency of such a service will vary with each situation. If you notice signs that your drains are slow or may be clogged, such as being unable to flush, backups, odd odors, and noises coming from your lines, it’s probably time to get your sewer or drains cleaned.
