Emergency Sewer Cleaning vs. Preventative Sewer Cleaning

We have several customers tell us that their sewer only backs-up on major holidays. Or nights. Or weekends. While we understand they truly mean that it never happens when it’s convenient (not that it ever is wanted or easy), sewer back-ups happen 24/7/365. That is one of the reasons why Garvin’s is available all day every day without extra charges for “inconvenient” times for emergency sewer cleaning. It is also the reason why we encourage people to conduct an annual preventative sewer cleaning.

Don’t all sewer back-ups require emergency sewer cleaning?

Emergency sewer cleaning is absolutely the name of our game. Call us anytime and we have a technician out to you in a matter of hours. We know how important it is to get your sewer back in working order as soon as possible. Not being able to flush a toilet, run the washing machine, faucets or sinks can be extremely frustrating, and also unsanitary.

Allowing waste water to sit for long periods of time can cause damage that requires a restoration company to mitigate the damages. With homeowner’s insurance not covering sewer cleaning or a main line back-up, the responsibility is on you to handle it quickly, professionally, and cost-effectively.

Emergencies can happen when too much toilet paper is used, or when the wrong toilet paper is used over time and doesn’t break down in the line. Low flush toilets and appliances can fail to put waste through the line properly, leading to sewer back-ups. Lines that become offset or broken, can also create an emergency, as can construction or other types of debris that causes blockages that enter the line.

When can preventative sewer cleaning be done?

Preventative sewer cleaning isn’t a guarantee that a sewer back-ups won’t happen, but they reduce the chances. At Garvin’s we stand behind our work and offer up to 90 day guarantees that the line we clear won’t back up. Preventative maintenance makes sure the line is clear of debris. This debris, waste, and/or root growth can catch other debris, causing it to accumulate and not let water to pass, thus causing sewer back-ups.

Preventative mainline cleaning can be done as often as you want at a time that is convenient to your schedule. Most preventative sewer cleaning is done on an annual basis, or per the recommendation of your service technician once they determine the amount of root growth in the line. They may also recommend products that can be used or shouldn’t be used in order to keep the line clear until your next service.

Whether you are needing emergency sewer cleaning or would like to schedule preventative service, Garvin’s is here to answer your questions and your calls 24/7/365. Give us a call today at 303-571-5114.

7 Tips to Reduce Clogs in Your Low Flush Toilet

Recently, in our blog titled: Your Low Flush Toilet Isn’t Really Saving Water. Here’s why”, we talked about the scientific reasons why low flush toilets clog more often than their water guzzling counterparts. Knowing this reason, however, doesn’t make those endless fights with your low flush toilet any less frustrating. So, we decided to offer up 7 tips to help you reduce clogs in your low flush toilet.toilet clogs

Say No to Ultra

While you may really enjoy the extra fluffy ultra-style toilet papers, they absorb more water than regular ones. This, combined with the limited water the low flush toilet is producing, means more likely clogs. Super absorbent tissue plus limited water means it is absorbing and sitting, rather than moving through as it should. Change your toilet paper, reduce clogs.

Run More Water

If your entire home is full of water saving devices, and your sewer line hasn’t been adjusted to deal with the appropriate float level, you will actually have to waste water sometimes in order to keep the system moving. I know, ironic. Run an empty load of laundry, or run the hose into a floor drain to allow more water into the system to get the “float level” back up to push debris through the drain lines.

Force a Flush

Another way to get more water into your drain system is to force a large flush. To do this, you can fill a large bucket with water and pour it into the toilet. This will cause the toilet to manually flush and push the water through the stub and trap under it to clear it of any resting debris. NOTE: DON’T do this if you suspect a clog, as it could cause the toilet to overflow. Use a plunger instead.

Flush More

Again, flushing more often seems like it defeats the point of a low flush toilet, but remember, it is a design flaw only in homes where the sewer line wasn’t set up to manage lower water levels. Because most homes were built to last a very long time, retrofitting new water saving devices onto older drain systems is a norm. New homes built with sustainability and water conservation in mind will likely have less issues. So, flush more frequently to reduce clogs.

Don’t Allow Extras

Anything extra absorbent, heavy, or that doesn’t break down easily, will become a culprit for causing clogs. Either they themselves will create a blockage, or they will collect debris and build into a clog. The most common problem items are: wipes, tampons, and paper towels. Don’t let your guests or your family flush these items if you have a low flush toilet. Use the trash can with a lid instead.

Conduct Preventative Cleanings

Scheduling a regular preventative maintenance sewer or drain cleaning can help reduce clogs by pushing additional debris through the line. Consider a cleaning every 6 months. Ask for discounts for regular service to keep your system from backing up due to clogs that keep building.

Keep a Plunger Handy

Whether you have a low flush toilet or not, we always recommend having a plunger in every bathroom. This will help prevent embarrassing guest issues, especially when they haven’t followed the above rules. A plunger should be designed to fit your toilet and create enough pressure to push through any clog.

Your Low Flush Toilet Isn’t Really Saving Water. Here’s why.

If you have a low flush toilet, whether at home or at work, you probably are frustrated by how often it seems to clog or cause back-ups. And there is actually a scientific reason why. I have two visual examples to help you understand. The first, I call The Drip.

The Drip

low flush toilet clog

Items needed: A straw with a wrapper and a glass of water.

Get a straw from a commercial establishment- the ones with a paper wrapper. Remove the paper wrapper and form it into a ball and set it on the table. Fill the straw with water, keeping your finger over one end to hold it in place. Hold the straw over the wrapper and let the water drip onto the wrapper. The paper wad will become wet, but likely won’t move.

Refill the straw with water and instead of letting it drip, let all the water go at once. The paper wad will likely move from the place it was sitting.

In this example, the wad of paper represents toilet paper in your sewer line. The dripping water represents a low flush toilet. The amount of water is just too low to move the paper. When the straw is fully emptied, then the paper is able to move. This brings us to metaphor two: The Ocean.

The Ocean

sewer float line

(c) National Geographic

Have you ever been to the ocean and watched the waves sneak up the shore? The water ebbs and flows. Have you noticed how the tide carries debris and deposits it on the sand? The items float in the water and then catch on the sand and are left behind. This is also true in your sewer line. When you flush your toilet, the debris rides the water down the drain and are deposited at the end of the tide.

Your sewer system is built somewhat like an ocean. It is made to allow water to flow out of your house using a “float level”. In a 2” pipe, the water carries out all the debris. It then opens into a 3” pipe and then a 4” pipe. This thins the water level, allowing debris to settle. Most residential sewer lines run from the house about 70-110’ out of your house to the main city sewer lines.

However, in a low flush toilet, this “tide” may only deposit the debris 20 feet out. This can cause serious problems because that deposit can now catch other debris and build up in the line, rather than being pushed through to the city sewer main. Sewer lines are designed for 5 gallon tanks, so with the new water conserving toilets and sinks, less water is going into the drain system. In most cases that means half the water is entering, but the outside sewer line wasn’t adjusted to allow for a proper float level. And, that is why your low flush toilet clogs or causes back-ups.

The great irony here is that in order to clear your line, you need a ton of water. But, we also have a few other tips you can implement to help you prevent your low flush toilet from clogging, in the blog titled: 7 Tips to Reduce Clogs in Your Low Flush Toilet.

Time To Respond To Some More of Our Sewer Cleaning Reviews

 

Garvin's Sewer Service can use a sewer snake like no one else!Every so often we like to respond to some of our customer comments regarding our sewer cleaning, rooter service, drain cleaning, and sewer camera services. Today we have a few people from along the front range who told us about their experience with Garvin’s.

Garvin’s…came out because I had moved into a new home. There was a clogged tub. They got in there and got it unplugged. All was good. I had worked with Garvin’s Sewer Service before on a rental property. I thought they were reliable.

— Ted K.

Thanks for giving us the positive review, Ted. Nobody likes dealing with a clogged tub when they move into a new home, because it’s pretty obvious what’s down there: hair that is slowly degrading over years until it stops the free flow of water. When this happens, you’re suddenly sitting a tub that won’t let our your water and might just allow some of what’s disintegrating back up into your tub. Eww! It’s bad enough if it’s your own hair, but when it’s someone else’s it’s the worst. Call Garvin’s and we’ll get to your drain cleaning right away.

I called Garvin’s Sewer Service because there was a sewer back-up in one of my rental properties. They got out there as immediate as possible and took care of it. The tenant was ecstatic about that. That’s not the only time they’ve helped me out. I use them for my rentals but also personally. They are always prompt and courteous, and the communicate very well.”

— Steve S.

We deal with rental properties a lot, because landlords and managers realize that we’ll be there quickly. If your property becomes known as one with a lot of problems that aren’t solved right away, the word will get around and you won’t have as many tenants knocking on your door looking to rent. Steve, you mention that your client was ecstatic about us being there so fast, and it makes sense. After all, no tenant wants to see anything sticking around after they flush. We’re happy to get out there and perform sewer cleaning and rooter service for your tenant, because we know if your tenant is happy, you will be too.

We had contact with Brian, Matt and Eric who did the repair in a prompt professional and competent manner. We are very happy with the whole Garvin’s experience and will no doubt recommend your services just like we got our recommendation to your organization.”

— Tom, Denver

Thanks, Tom! You bring up an excellent point about “word of mouth.” Someone you knew had a good experience with us. Now it’s possible that it was a fellow business owner, or perhaps it was your mother. The fact is, small clients can lead to big clients, as it’s pretty obvious from the number of Garvin’s employees you encountered that your project was fairly large. And now you’ll pass our good name along and we’ll get even more business. It never hurts to be an honest business that does good work.

I spoke to my neighbor after I saw your van in front of their house. He said that he used you last year on my recommendation, but got a $40 coupon from your competitor and called them first. He asked about cleaning out the main line and some additional line, and tried to get a quote on the phone. The guy quoted above $200 for the main line and said he would need to examine the other lines before quoting them once he came out. He kept asking how much it would be and the guy kept changing the price and asking “how much are you looking to pay?” He got tired of it and called Garvin’s. The rep quoted the basic price for the main line and each additional line. He got them all done for less than the other guy quoted with the “coupon”. Great work!

— JD., Greenwood Village

Hey, look at that, more word of mouth from our sewer service clients! It’s like it’s important or something! We’re certainly glad that your neighbor was happy with the price and the sewer cleaning, and glad that you talked to him. People are happy with us, and that’s why it pays to be fair every time.

Thanks to everyone who wrote in. We’re happy to be approaching our eighth decade of serving the Denver area with premium sewer cleaning and rooter service. For those of you without our magnet on your refrigerator, you can contact us here.

 

 

 

Why Go With Gavin’s For 24/7 Sewer Drain Cleaning?

 

dreamstime_26568In today’s world, it’s pretty standard that companies that offer emergency services, such as urgent sewer cleaning, are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As soon as the first company offers it (which was probably Garvin’s, as long as we’ve been around in Denver), every company needs to jump on so that it’s not left behind in the 24/7 game.

So while 24/7 service is pretty common, Garvin’s offers something that isn’t as common: no surcharges for nights, weekends or holidays when you need drain and sewer cleaning. Why? We’ll, here’s the breakdown.

Nights

We know very well that many houses go unused for most of the day, as people are at work and at school. That means that the most likely time that people need emergency sewer drain cleaning is at night. Why charge our neighbors extra just because they’re home and actually use their plumbing?

Weekends

People are home quite a lot on weekends, so they’re using their plumbing more. That means it’s more likely a clog will happen on weekends. Plus, people who can’t be home to meet us for sewer cleaning during the week want a time on the weekends. There’s really no reason to charge them extra just because it’s convenient to them!

Holidays

Even if a company offers no surcharge on nights, and even if they offer no surcharge on weekends, you won’t find many that won’t charge you extra on holidays. And that’s odd to us, because helping someone on a holiday just makes sense. Garvin’s realizes that people often have people over during holidays, so why add an extra charge when they’re already under enough pressure?

We’re not interested in fleecing you for all of your money. We’re glad to have your business, because we know you’ll be back next time too. Give Garvin’s a call — day or night, weekend or holiday — and we’ll help you.

 

 

 

Breaking Down The Declaration Of Service For Our Drain and Sewer Cleaning Customers

 

Drain cleaning is a Garvin's specialty.At Garvin’s Sewer Service, we believe in being as upfront about everything as much as possible. For instance, we tell you that we’re not going to charge you extra on weekends, we give you direct quotes on how much something should cost, and are going to be honest with you regarding what your home needs, whether you need simply drain cleaning, extensive sewer cleaning, or if you’ll need to contact someone for sewer replacement. We’re also not going to send down the sewer camera (an added charge) unless it’s absolutely necessary.

Because we think it’s important to be upfront with our customers, we have a Declaration of Service that we’d like to talk about. It’s our way of telling you that you’re getting the best from Garvin’s every time. There are five basic parts:

  • When your serviceman arrives, he will be wearing a Garvin’s uniform with a Garvin’s logo patch and a name patch or badge.

We understand how awkward it can be opening the door to someone you’ve never met before. If you’ve called for sewer cleaning, you may already be in “frazzled emergency mode,” and we want you to know exactly who you’re opening the door for.

We make sure all of our service agents wear a Garvin’s Sewer Service uniform with a name badge. This provides you with two pieces of information: first, it ensures that the person is actually from a licensed sewer cleaning company. Second, you can rest assured that the technician who has arrived has the entirety of Garvin’s training. In other words, we’re not sending third-party businesses to your door. We’re sending Garvin’s best.

  • Your serviceman will introduce himself and ask you about the problem(s) you are experiencing.

The introduction is important. If you missed the nametag the serviceman is wearing, it’s a good auditory reminder so that you can make reference to him later (especially if you’re writing us a thankful testimonial!)

It’s also important that our serviceman talk to your about your problems. Though you might have talked to one of our representatives on the phone, details can get lost the more times the information is relayed. Tell them exactly what’s happening, and please be completely honest about what happened just before the problem and if you’ve tried to fix it yourself.

  • You may ask for him to come in through an alternate entrance and/or to wear protective foot coverings.

Our service technicians are clean, but we understand if you just got new carpet if you’d like us to come in through the garage. We always have protective foot coverings at the ready if you’d like us to wear those. We’re always out to make you feel comfortable in your own home and to protect your home as well.

  • After your serviceman evaluates the problem, he will return to his truck for the needed equipment.

There will probably be a few trips in and out to the Garvin’s truck for equipment, parts, paperwork, or to contact the home office. Feel free to say”hi” to us as we’re in and out, but we’ll also understand if you want to be doing your own thing while we’re taking care of your drain cleaning or sewer cleaning.

  • Your serviceman will use protective mats and, as needed, a protective cover on his machine(s) to keep your areas as clean as possible. Sometimes the access to the problem may require the technician to take his machine apart.

Let’s be honest: we’re a drain and sewer cleaning service. That means we’re the experts at getting rid of stuff that you wish was already gone. Rooter service will be physically touching the blockage with its spinning blades, but we’ve also got the cleaning process of the equipment down to a science. We’ll put down as much protective matting and covers as necessary so that the surrounding areas aren’t contaminated. We know that cleanliness in sewer drain cleaning is something that people recognize, and will always go out of our way to protect your home.

We take our Declaration of Service seriously, because we think of our customers along the front range as our neighbors. Want to see our amazing customer service (and sewer cleaners) in action? Contact Garvin’s Sewer Service, because we’re ready to show you what we’ve got.

 

 

 

Can You Do Without Plumbing and Sewer Cleaning?

 

dreamstime_xxl_2013267Okay, so let’s say that you wake up tomorrow and there’s a leprechaun sitting at the foot of your bed. And he has nothing to do with Lucky Charms.

Now, we’ll pause for a moment to let you imagine that. (We’ll also stop to let you wonder why someone would ever start a blog about sewer cleaning in that fashion.)

Okay, so he’s sitting there and he says “You stole my gold, so I’m going to take away all of your utilities! Electric, water, heat, cable, internet, phone! All gone, hee hee hee.”

But you tell him “wait a second, I never stole your gold!”

He chews on his tiny leprechaun pipe and says “You know what, maybe it wasn’t you. But I’m still a jerk, so I’m going to steal all of your utilities save one! Choose which one you will keep!”

So you’re thinking “I’d really like to drop kick this little twitwad, but there’s a good chance that he’ll put a curse on me or something.” So maybe the thing to do is play his game. So you ask him if you can think for a few minutes, and while he watches The Price Is Right, you go over your options.

 

Electricity

How can you deal without electricity? The TV won’t work, you won’t be able to to use the coffeemaker or your lights!

On the other hand, TV isn’t really all that important. You can grab coffee on the way to work. It’s April, and the days are getting longer so that you won’t need candles until after 8pm. Yeah, you can probably go without electricity for a while.

 

Heat

The fact is, neither of these is going to work without electricity. So you definitely shouldn’t choose to keep your gas. Also, it being April and all, you’re going to be okay for quite a few months until winter comes.

 

Cable

Seriously, when did this become a utility?! It’s not, people! You should get rid of this one on your own without the leprechaun’s help!

 

Internet

The internet is nice. It provides entertainment and allows people to work from home. It also helps in shopping and builds our economy. But without the electricity, your modem is dead even if you have a laptop. At least you can use your…

 

Phone

Your phone will help you get to the internet, and you can recharge it in the car or at the office. You can also read all of the blogs we’ve written about drain cleaning, sewer cleaning, and rooter service.

And technically a cell phone is not a home utility, so maybe the leprechaun will forget about this one. Anyways, would you really choose your phone over…

 

Water and Plumbing

C’mon, you knew this blog was heading here. Plumbing is obviously the most important utility you have. It brings you fresh water so that you can brush your teeth, lets you shower so that you don’t offend your co-workers, and sends your morning business down the toilet. You can do the dishes, and since your washer doesn’t work without electricity you can still hand wash a few choice items. Fresh water allows you to drink without getting sick or resorting to soda, and you know that plumbing and sewer service is what helps to keep you healthy and well.

 

Everybody Seen The Leprechaun, Say “Hey!”

So, you tell the leprechaun that you’ve made your decision. He tells you to wait until after the Showcase Showdown, and he yells at the contestant to spin again on 65 cents. You suggest that they stick, and he gives you a dirty look.

A few minutes later he asks what your decision is. You tell him that fresh water coming in and old water going out is more important that any other utility. And much like at the end of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, he says “You have chosen…wisely.” At which point he vanishes in a puff of smoke. You get to keep everything!

You smile and walk into the bathroom, opening up your drawer. Ah, good, his gold is still there. You should probably be more careful the next time you steal a pot of gold; after all, you don’t want to lose your plumbing and sewer service!

 

 

 

Would You Like To Be A Plumber Or A Sewer Drain Cleaning Service Expert?

dreamstime_xxl_31295984Did you know that there’s a serious shortage of plumbers in our country? There’s more and more plumbing work due to a growing population in America, while there are fewer and fewer plumbers to do those jobs.

It’s Never Not Needed!

Okay, forgive the double negative, but plumbing and drain cleaning services will never not be needed. In other words, people are always (always!) going to need fresh water coming into their homes, and always (ALWAYS!) going to require that their wastewater is taken as far away from them as possible.

It’s Doesn’t Require Tons of Schooling!

If you’re interested in becoming a plumber, you’ll need to follow four basic steps: have your high school diploma or GED, get vocational training, complete an apprenticeship program, and then get licensed. Considering that a four-year college student tends to wrack up $25,000-$50,000 in debt, becoming a plumber makes a lot more sense when you realize you’ll be spending less for schooling, starting work earlier in your life, and probably making more money!

It Can’t Be Outsourced!

So many (too many) jobs in our country are being outsourced, whether they’re informational or manufacturing. But no one will ever be able to outsource plumbing and rooter service!

Nationwide Opportunities!

Where do you want to live? Well, we have to admit that Denver is a pretty amazing place, and we’ve been serving it with sewer cleaning for over 75 years. But if you want or need to move away from the area for some reason, you won’t any problems finding a job. There are plumbing and sewer service opportunities all across the country. Basically, anywhere in the country you see a house or business is going to need sewer cleaning eventually.

It Can’t Be Replaced!

Can a computer take care of your sewer cleaning? Can a robot install your plumbing? We’re certainly a long way away from that! The fact is, rooter service has gotten more technological over the years, since we’re using sewer scopes more and more. But the fact is that someone will always be needed to bring the machines to your house and make sure that they’re taking care of your sewer drain properly.

And all of that adds up to…

It’s Good Money!

It’s basic supply and demand…there’s more and more work for fewer and fewer plumbers. Plumbers are always going to be needed, and people are happy to spend money when it means that their house will be in order and that their wastewater will go away. Garvin’s Sewer Service will never fleece a customer, and at the same time we’re always sure to pay our service agents a fair salary.

All in all, plumbing and sewer service is a good job that fewer and fewer people are interested in. We don’t know why, because it’s an interesting job and provides an incredible service to individuals and society as a whole. Think you have what it takes to join the best team in town? Contact Garvin’s today!

 

 

 

What Affects Sewer Line Replacement Costs?

 

sewer repair_ctaWe talked in our last blog about the different options you might have when you need sewer line replacement. If you can’t take advantage of a less invasive service such as sewer bursting or sewer lining, you might need sewer line replacement. Of course, the first step to finding out if you need sewer line replacement is to get a third-party opinion to verify that you need a replacement in the first place. Garvin’s will send down the sewer camera to give you our professional opinion so that you have the best options available to you.

Now you might wonder why Garvin’s Sewer Service is spending so much time talking about sewer line replacement, when what we really focus on is drain cleaning and sewer cleaning. Well, what it comes down to is our interest in the community; you’re our neighbors, and we don’t want you having to pay $15,000 when a $500 fix will do. We also don’t want your yard to go through a catastrophic event if it doesn’t need to. On top of that, we’re interested in helping our colleagues in the sewer line replacement business keep their industry’s good name as clean as possible, because less than reputable sewer line replacement companies have fooled too many people into getting new sewer lines they didn’t need.

Who You Go With: We recently replaced a door handle on one of our vans. The first bid came in at $268 dollars. It seemed a little steep, so we decided to try someone else. That one came in at $220. We could have stopped there, but we tried one more place. $110. We went with this last one, and because of some work they had originally bid for didn’t need to be done, the total bill was $96.

Now these were all reputable body shops in the area, according to internet research and Angie’s List. But different companies have different needs, suppliers, rent costs, and attitudes about how they want to be perceived in the community.

All this to say you might get wildly varying bids from sewer replacement companies. Check around, make sure they’re reputable, ask us…you might be surprised at the difference in bids.

Distance From the Street: If you live in a modern neighborhood, there’s a good chance that you have a small front yard and that the amount of sewer line you’re responsible for from your house to the public sewer line is a fairly short distance. If this isn’t the case and the distance is greater there’s a good chance you’ll end up paying more. A longer distance means more pipe, more trenching, and more time removing the old pipe.

Tree removal: In the unfortunate instance that you need a tree removed, you’ll incur that cost as well. It might be a service offered by the sewer replacement company or it might be something you’ll need to contact a landscaping company about. And speaking of a landscape company…

Lawn Repair: Sewer line replacement destroys your lawn, from the trenching and from the treads of the trencher itself compacting your dirt. Some people are content to just throw some grass seed on top of the trenching line, while others will want to match the grass color and texture exactly. Settling of the trenching line might give you a low spot, or a high spot might need to be flattened.

But the Biggest Determiner of Price Is…: whether you need sewer replacement at all! We’ll reiterate it: it’s important to get a third-party’s sewer camera down there to help you determine the best course of action. That’s where Garvin’s Sewer Service comes in.

Getting your sewer line replaced is a huge operation. But when it’s over you may never need sewer cleaning again. In fact, because the PVC and ABS pipe used today will last right next to forever, it’s (almost) certain you won’t need to have pipe replaced again (barring the biggest earthquake Colorado’s ever seen.)

We hope you don’t need a full sewer line replacement. If you think you do, give Garvin’s a call and our sewer scope can help you decide on our best option.

 

How Rooter Service Heals Your Home

 

dreamstime_9956210Have you ever thought about how your home resembles your body? You furnace system is the lungs, your electrical system is the veins, and the drain and sewer systems are the…well, heck that really does work, doesn’t it, because the sewer system is the waste system.

So, when your body’s waste system isn’t working as you’d like, when stuff just isn’t moving through the way you’d like it to, what do you do? Well, strangely there are a lot of correlations between your digestive system and your sewer system.

Don’t put the bad stuff in in the first place: What’s the best way to keep your digestive system healthy? Don’t put the bad stuff in. Don’t eat too much cheese. Don’t let the meat just sit there.

When it comes to your sewer system, keep the stuff out that clogs it up. Don’t put oil into it, don’t send the grease down in the first place.

Clean it out: If your bowels aren’t working quite right, maybe you need to clean them out a little. Perhaps you should eat more fiber, keep more fruits and vegetables in your refrigerator.

The best way to prevent problems with your sewer system is to invest in a little drain cleaning service. By taking care of your drains and getting regular cleaning, you’re less likely to need sewer service.

And if it gets too serious…: Sometimes you need a deep cleaning, to start everything from scratch. With you body you might take a laxative to make sure everything is out of the way.

When it comes to sewer service, rooter service is the way to go. It resets your sewer drains so that everything is moving smoothly again.

You always want to keep your sewer pipes as clean as possible to make sure that the blackwater goes into the public system as easily as possible. Give Garvin’s a call, we can always help!
