Sewer cleaning is the process of removing built-up debris, leaves, grease, grit, sand, plastic bags, rags and obstructions such as tree roots from the sewer system. Sewers collect wastewater from laterals connected to homes, offices and industries, which carry different types of wastewater.
Improperly closed or missing manhole covers can also allow surface debris to enter the sewer pipeline. This wastewater has to travel to the sewage treatment plant for treatment before disposal.
To keep the sewer line in working condition and efficiently taking away wastewater, it is necessary to keep the sewer free from obstructions that can prevent optimum flow conditions in the pipes. Improper flow can lead to problems over time such as severely clogged pipes, corrosion, backups, overflows, and unpleasant odors.
