Sewer Pipe Drain Cleaning & Descaling
Sewer Pipe Cleaning & Descaling
Pipelining Technologies offers sewer line cleaning and descaling by utilizing mechanical (dry) and/or non-mechanical (hydro) means. Mechanical cleaning includes equipment that is specifically designed to protect your pipes while eliminating the scale and fat/oil/grease buildup inside your lines. This type of cleaning and descaling restores pipes to their near original diameter, eliminates hang-ups, and thereby usually increases flow.
Mechanical cleaning is required prior to pipe lining rehabilitation. It prepares the pipes for optimal usage and allows for a smooth, consistent lining application. Not all drainage lines require pipe lining. Many customers are happy to learn that their immediate issues are resolved from mechanical and/or non-mechanical cleaning. A comprehensive video inspection serves to document the pipes’ conditions.
Yes, You Should Be Cleaning Your Pipes
Plumbing professionals recommend that in any home, residential building, or business, it is a good idea to get your drains examined and cleaned once every two years. But if you notice a problem, for example, your shower water drains slowly, or there is a smell coming from your drain, you may have a clog that should be dealt with sooner rather than later.
Leading signs of blockages:
- Slow draining of water
- Backup in shower/tub
- Odor/sewer gas smell
- Backups in toilets
Sewer pipe cleaning and descaling is a sound investment for the longevity of your pipelines. Proper maintenance can prolong the life of your pipes.
Health Dangers of Sewage Backups
Reminder – Avoid personal contact with sewage. Contact with raw sewage can be potentially dangerous to your health. Bacteria carrying diseases from Gastroenteritis to Hepatitis A are found in sewage and should be avoided.
Augusta University Infectious Disease Chief Dr. Jose Vazquez has said, “…at least 10 million people are exposed to raw sewage and out of those at least 10 percent get infected and frequently get hospitalized.”
If you encounter a sewage backup on your property, either indoors or outdoors, call a licensed plumber to take care of the emergency situation. They receive additional vaccinations and wear personal protective equipment (PPE) while using specialized equipment designed to eliminate blockages.
Get An Inside View
Once the backup is cleared and the sewage is resolved, it is time to begin a long-term plan to correct your sewer pipe problem. A diagnostic video inspection is the best way to see what is happening inside your system.
If your pipes are in relatively good condition, a total cleaning and descaling may allow for additional years of usage. The hydro and dry cleaning techniques can restore the pipes’ to near full diameter while removing significant buildup, scaling, and create a smoother route for drainage. Most customers find that flow is increased after cleaning.
Add Cleaning & Descaling to Your Maintenance
A proactive approach to maintenance should include your sewer and rainwater drainage systems. Schedule a total home cleaning every two years to get the most out of your pipes.
Let's Get Started
Book Your Video Inspection
Our process starts with an in-depth assessment of your existing pipes. We use advanced technology to capture detailed measurements and conditions of your property’s pipes and build a streamlined plan to repair any damaged sections.

3-Steps to Trenchless Pipe Lining
We begin all pipe lining projects with a detailed forensic study of the existing pipe system by means of a HD video camera inspection. A digital copy of the video is yours to keep.
Sewer Pipe Cleaning
The sewer system is cleaned using hydro (water) jetting and/or a mechanical cleaning process that removes scale, buildup, debris, blockages and restores flow in the existing pipes.
Lining & Reinstatement
Your cleaned pipes are lined with an epoxy saturated tube (liner). The tube hardens and the new structural line becomes stronger than PVC. Robotic equipment is used to reopen branch lines.
We provide trenchless sewer repair throughout much of South Florida. Don’t see your specific area? Give us a call; it’s likely that we can help.
