If you want to reduce your need for a professional sewer cleaner, there are a few things you can do. First, you want to be wary of "flushable wipes." Although they may be considered "flushable" and just as good as toilet paper, they are actually one of the leading causes of sewer clogs. Independent tests say that the wipes do not disintegrate easily or quickly and can be a cause of back-ups within the sewer system. To avoid costly repairs, avoid flushing any type of wipe "flushable" or not, down the toilet!
You can also prevent sewer backup by being careful in your kitchen! It may be tempting to dump your grease, fats or oils from cooking down the drain, but don't! It's important to prevent these from going down the drain if you want to avoid costly sewer cleaning bills. They can collect in your plumbing and lead to sewage problems as a result. Take it from us, and always pour oils and fats into non-recyclable containers and dispose of them in the trash.
