One of the most neglected forms of home and building maintenance in Southfield is a regular cleaning of its drainage system. Whether it's a simple storm drain cleaning and flow test, or the cleaning of a sewer lateral and larger wastewater system, the best way to prevent damage to your pipes as well as clogs is through a yearly cleaning.

The most common form of drain cleaning at Mr. Rooter Detroit is called hydro jetting. Imagine a power washing hose used to wash the exterior of a building or a sidewalk washing the interior of your pipes clear of any debris settled within the pipe. Furthermore, this process removes the gunk that has built up along the walls of your pipes over the years, restoring the flow of water to the same volume as when they were first installed. The fact that this process only requires simple water as opposed to any other chemical solutions also ensures it is environmentally friendly and safe for your pipes and the environment.

Trenchless Drain Repair

It's a good idea to perform a task like hydro jetting regularly because it extends the lifetime of your pipes. The buildup on the interior walls of a pipe causes corrosion, damage, and blockages that can eventually cause your pipes to burst. Once a pipe has burst, a drain cleaning can no longer fix your issues. A regular drain cleaning will also reveal any trouble spots when there is time to treat them, before they lead to a pipe failure, and a potential backflow of wastewater into your home or business.

It's also absolutely crucial to get drains inspected with a robotic camera inserted into the pipeline after every cleaning. This will allow a trained technician to view the interior of your pipes and take note of any issues found along the way. This is the surest way to ensure the health of your pipes over time, as any troublespots can be identified and treated before they lead to an expensive fix.

If a camera inspection reveals a major issue with your drainage system, have no fear: a fix will not require large scale excavation and expensive replacement. Mr. Rooter Detroit offers trenchless drain repair services with our pipe lining technology. Simply put, we can build a new pipe within your existing failed or leaking one through the insertion of an epoxy impregnated pipe liner. This liner allows us to coat your existing pipe in a plastic solution that hardens to form a safe and secure pipe within your old one with a minimal loss of diameter, saving you the time and expense of an excavation.
