A sewer backup is the last thing you want in your home or business. Not only is it a huge mess, but it can also be a health hazard too. Pipe Surgeons should be your first call when a sewer overflow happens. We will dispatch someone right away to mitigate damage to your property and fix the source of the problem.
What Causes Sewer Line Problems?
A sewer overflow happens when the line is obstructed. Any combination of tree roots, excess paper products, or food waste can block the flow of water and end up causing your toilet or other fixture to overflow. Some warning signs of sewer line blockage include:
- Slow draining fixtures
- Multiple fixtures backing up at once
- Foul smell or strange sounds coming from your drains
- Wet spots in your yard
If your drains exhibit early signs of an obstruction, contact a professional before it becomes a plumbing emergency. We can unclog your drain and perform any necessary repairs to prevent an overflow from happening.
Sewer Line Repair & Replacement
If water starts backing up in one of your fixtures, try to turn off the water and then call us right away. Upon arrival, our skilled technician will find the source of the problem and get to work fixing your sewer line.
Drain cleaning is often needed to clear stubborn obstructions. We use hydro jetting, a modern form of drain cleaning that uses a pressurized stream of water to break down tree roots, mineral buildup, and other foreign materials without damaging your pipes.
Particularly when tree root invasion has occurred, you will likely need some form of pipe repair. Getting rid of the roots will still leave behind damaged sections of pipe. We offer cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining which restores the inside of your pipe using epoxy resin and a sleeve of durable material.
When extensive damage cannot be repaired with pipe lining, we also perform pipe replacement. We use trenchless methods of repair and replacement whenever possible to reduce the impact to your property and perform repairs in a fraction of the time.

Preventing Future Sewer Problems
Some sewer damage is unavoidable due to the natural wear and tear of your pipes over time. However, preventing misuse of your pipes will cut down on unnecessary damage and reduce the frequency of clogs. Do not use your drains to dispose of paper products, cleaning products, food scraps, grease, or other foreign substances down your drains. Lastly, incorporate preventive maintenance for your plumbing. Drain cleaning is a cost-effective way to alleviate clogs and mineral buildup.
No one wants to deal with a sewage overflow. It’s dirty, messy, and just plain inconvenient. Let Pipe Surgeons handle your sewer backup with simple and efficient trenchless repairs. Our technicians will restore your pipes and help you set up a maintenance plan to reduce the likelihood of a future occurrence.
