Say Goodbye to Plumbing Headaches!

We’ve all dealt with the headache of a clogged drain or a backup in a toilet, tub, or floor drain. These plumbing problems seem to occur at the most inopportune of times and are extremely disruptive to homes and businesses. At Miller’s Services, we offer 24/7 emergency services to ensure that these problems can be taken care of in a timely manner and cause as little inconvenience as possible. From kitchen and bathroom drains to floor drains and water lines, we offer drain cleaning services, maintenance, and repair in all residential applications. We’re equipped with state-of-the-art technology and tools to offer a variety of effective drain cleaning services.

It is always a good idea to schedule drain cleaning services as soon as you notice a slow drain or a minor issue before a major clog or backup occurs. However, in the event you are faced with an emergency clog, our highly trained team members will be able to respond quickly and efficiently, offering solutions for your home or business while ensuring the safety and comfort of everyone involved.

Commercial trade services are available to local businesses. Please call our office to discuss your business needs.

Our Drain Cleaning Services

Machine Drain Cleaning & Power Snaking

For the very stubborn clogs, sometimes it’s necessary to bring in the “big guns.” We use high-tech machinery to clean drains and remediate clogs. Our motorized drain snakes are capable of easily navigating multiple bends inside your pipes to get rid of the gunk.

Hand Snaking

Hand snaking is another way to remove a clog that is not so deep it requires motorized machinery, but it requires a steady hand and the right touch. With an auger (otherwise known as a snake), we’re able to get in and clear up the obstruction in no time.

Root Cutting and Removal

Tree roots can cause all sorts of problems with plumbing and septic systems. We own the playbook on how to identify the problem and develop the perfect course of action for removing the interruption.

High Pressure Jetting

One method of cleaning and clearing sewer and drain lines is by using high pressured water to flush through the system. The high-speed streams of water cut through the materials and corrosion. This method can be hazardous and unsafe if used by untrained professionals. Fortunately, our team is well-trained in this procedure and can make sure everything is done by the book.

Sewer & Drain Line Cameras

There’s no length we won’t go to in order to diagnose your issues and to bring your systems to their maximum health. From time to time, it’s necessary to employ high-tech solutions. One of those solutions is to use a specialized camera that will traverse through your drains or pipes so that we can actually see the exact cause of the clog or corruption.

Locating of Bellies in Lines, Collapsed Areas, and Broken or Loose Fittings 

A sewer line “belly” is a low area where the pipe has lost positive slope going to its destination. Time, wear, and tear can also cause collapses in lines, which will inevitably cause interruptions in service. Broken and loose fittings are another link in the chain and an important one at that. We’ve seen it all, and we have the expertise to handle any problem with your sewage or septic equipment.

Drain & Sewer Line Repairs and Replacements

Some signs that you may need to make repairs or replacements to your drain or sewer lines are:

  • A bubbling or gurgling sound coming from your toilet
  • Slow flowing drains
  • The smell of rotting food (not sewage) near kitchen drains

If you have a broken sewer main, you may experience the following:

  • A noticeable backup of sewage in the toilet or basement or persistent clogging of drains.
  • Higher than normal water/sewer bills can indicate damaged seals at pipe joints, causing excess water to spill from the system.
  • A powerful sulfur smell (like rotten eggs) indicates a buildup of sulfide gas from long-standing and decomposing waste.
  • Excessive water or sewage in one location within the yard or around the home may indicate an excessive amount of tree roots that have penetrated the pipes.

If you notice any of these issues, do not delay. Call us immediately so we can rectify the issues at hand.

Cleanout Installations

A cleanout is a tee installed in a drainline that enables a drain cable access to clean out stoppage in a drain. Similar to other components discussed on this page, the installation of a cleanout should be entrusted to skilled and certified experts.

Count on Miller’s Services to keep your drains in prime condition.

BioOne Application in Drain Lines in Conjunction with Drain Cleaning

BioOne’s stable performance-ready formulation of live vegetative cultures and its pre-measured cap makes using BioOne easy for residential drain lines and septic systems. When used in conjunction with manual drain cleaning, the active microbes colonize in the drain line and eat the gook and slime the cable leaves behind.
