Question Mark Icon

Whose responsibility is it if my sewer

backs-up ?

Your responsibility with the sewer system starts at your property line and includes all plumbing and drainage lines in your home or workplace.

Question Mark Icon

What must I do if my sewer backs-up ?

If you are facing a sewer back-up then it is crucial that you refrain from using water in your home until help arrives. It's also essential that you keep children and pets away from the affected area due to potential hazards to health.

Question Mark Icon

Can I fix my clogged sink or toilet myself with a plunger ?

Yes, sometimes small blockages can be cleared with a plunger. However, if the problem keeps re-occurring then a larger issue is not being dealt with. Hiring a professional plumber to perform drain cleaning services will give you peace of mind because your problem will be addressed for the long-term.

Question Mark Icon

Should I use chemical drain cleaning

products ?

While some may be tempted to turn to chemical drain cleaning products, these are not recommended. They can corrode metal pipes, damage plastic ones, and they have a terrible impact on the environment !

Question Mark Icon

My drain just smells bad. Do I really need it cleaned ?

Yes. Sewer gases don't smell very pleasant, but more importantly, they are very unhealthy to inhale. If you have unpleasant sewer odours infiltrating your home, have your sewer lines augered to prevent harmful exposure to your family.

Question Mark Icon

How do I know if I need a professional drain cleaner ?

If you cannot plunge the drain and if the water sits in a sink or toilet for a number of hours with gravity still not doing its job, it's time to call a professional.

We will arrive with the right tools and the expertise to alleviate your problem and get things draining as they should.
