A blocked sewer line can often be the result of roots or debris in the line, which can be easily be cleared by GSM’s experienced drain cleaning technicians. However, sometimes the problem is worse and the sewer line or sewer lateral that runs from your house to the municipal sewer main is too badly deteriorated to simply clear. While the symptoms of a deteriorated sewer lateral are similar to a clogged line, GSM sewer line technicians can identify the extent of the damage and recommend a course of action to get your sewer back in service.
