Drain Inspection Services
Your home or business’ sanitary and storm sewers function in different ways, and require alternative methods of care. Not all storm drains are located outside the home, and knowing how to treat each drain type can result in saving yourself a lot of hassle (not to mention a flattened wallet). If you’re located in North Carolina and are experiencing trouble with your drain or sewer system, don’t hesitate - call Next Level today! Our team of highly-trained professionals are ready to tackle your next project, and will have your drains as good as new in no time!
Being proactive with your storm drains: at-home care
A big part of keeping your drains flowing involves actions taken at home, well before your Next Level engineer is called. Below are several things you can do to keep your sewer systems clean and your home and environment healthy:
- Never pour paints, solvents, cleaners, or other harsh chemical products into your drains. These can be disposed of at your local county household hazardous waste collection site.
- Collect and recycle motor oil properly.
- Minimize the use of pest- and herbicides. Even if not poured directly into drains, chemical runoff occurs when rain washes the poison from your yard into a storm drain.
- Repair any leaks or drips from your vehicle in a timely fashion.
- Keep storm sewer drains free of debris such as grass clippings, twigs, garden trimmings, or other yard waste.
- Never use the drain as a disposal site.
Most experts suggest ordering a drain inspection and cleaning on an annual basis as another great way to forestall serious, expensive repairs.
What does a drain inspection do, anyway?
An inspection of your drains - whether sanitary or storm sewers - sounds deceptively simple. In fact, the process is straightforward: a small, high-definition camera is threaded into your pipe at an access point, during which time it delivers a clear picture of the state of your pipes, the nature of your damage, and its location. This procedure is a vast improvement over the traditional method of using an educated guess to deduce where and what the problem was - and digging up long lengths of pipe at a time! A drain inspection drastically cuts the amount of time needed for your job, reduces mess, and slashes costs.
Our drain inspections are “trenchless” - meaning they don’t need to have a long trench created in your basement, backyard, or parking lot to reach pipes. All of our procedures ensure that your existing pipe stays in the ground while being repaired or replaced, cutting down on post-job clean-up, hidden job costs (such as new landscaping or freshly poured concrete), and making our procedures more environmentally friendly.
