Sewer Contractor Tips
How to Clean Up After a Sewage Backup
A sewage backup can be a headache for many homeowners and their families. In many cases, a sewage backup may cause sewage from a central system to enter one's home. In these situations, a home may be contaminated with sewage from other homes, industrial environments and other undesirable places. It's important to wear a respirator when cleaning up after a sewage backup. In addition, it's a good idea to place a window fan in a bathroom that has experienced sewage backup. It's essential to clean with plenty of hot water and antibacterial cleaners. For the best answers and services, contact A.R.C.E. Plumbing and Sewer today for more information!
How to Get Rid of Sewer Smell Coming Up From Drains
A sewage smell can be a headache for many homeowners and their families. While a sewage smell isn't harmful, it may indicate that some fixtures in a home aren't installed correctly. Most modern drains are built with a horseshoe bend. As water travels down the drain, it goes around this bend. Gravity will hold water in a horseshoe bend at all times. Since the bend is full of water, air from a sewage system can't travel into one's home. It can be challenging to install a drain with a horseshoe bend. Contact A.R.C.E.

How to Maintain Your Sewer Pump
A broken sewer pump can be a headache for many homeowners and their families. While a sewer pump will require little maintenance, there are several important things one must do to avoid problems. Most homes use a sewer pump for bathrooms and kitchens in a basement. The sewer pump will help move sewage to an exterior septic tank or municipal sewer system. It's important to avoid flushing anything down a basement toilet that could clog a pump. This includes paper, tinfoil, metal and grease. In addition, it's a good idea to use RV toilet tissue in a basement bathroom. Contact A.R.C.E. Plumbing and Sewer today for more information!
