When Anthony Peto founded Sewer Cleaning Company, he started with one employee and a single truck. Now, less than two years later, the company has grown to five employees and three trucks, outfitted with leading-edge hydro-jet technology that can clear sewer lines efficiently and completely.

The growth, Anthony says, is due to referrals from satisfied clients—that and the company’s core values of transparency and “doing what you say you’re going to do.”

“If someone is having issues with their sewer, all they want is for someone to be straight with them,” Anthony

explains. “They don’t want you guessing and they don’t want you doing work that is not required. That’s why we start almost every job with a videoscoping.”

For almost two years now, Sewer Cleaning Company has offered a free sewer line videoscoping to Northeast Ohio homeowners, a service that has become extremely popular.

“Videoscoping is like a colonoscopy for your sewer line,” Anthony says. “It allows us—and the homeowner—to see exactly what the problem is so we can determine the best way to resolve it. Sometimes there’s a problem, sometimes there’s not. Sometimes there is an easy fix, sometimes it’s more complicated. But knowing for certain what the underlying problem is means we don’t have to guess or perform unnecessary services.”

April Showers Bring Sewer Problems
Springtime presents a dual problem for Northeast Ohio homeowners. Not only is the extra rainfall a challenge for partially clogged sewer lines, but tree roots become active and start searching for water by breaking into terracotta pipes.

“If your home was built before 1980, you probably have terracotta lines,” Anthony says. “Tree roots can work their way into the gaps between the pipe’s sections or through a pipe that might be cracked or partially collapsed. Our hydro-jet cutters can make quick work of stubborn tree roots.”

In addition to sewer lines, there are storm lines, footer drains and drain tiles that take water away from your foundation. These can crack or clog with debris, sending rainwater right into your basement. In fact, before you spend thousands on basement waterproofing, you can get peace of mind by spending a few hundred with Sewer Cleaning Company. “It might be a simple fix,” Anthony advises.

Advanced Equipment
Although Sewer Cleaning Company utilizes traditional snakes and cutter heads, they specialize in clearing lines with today’s leading-edge, high-pressure water jets designed to tackle different types of clogs, including brand new equipment added over the winter to increase capacity this spring. “When your toilet is gurgling, you don’t want to hear that you have to wait,” Anthony. “That’s why we have increased our capacity. We want to be available when our clients need us.”

The company’s water jet system can completely clear up to an 8-inch commercial sanitary line, a small, 1.25-inch vanity drain line, and your storm lines.

“Our hydro-jet technology flushes the entire pipe clean and doesn’t leave a debris field like a traditional snake. Plus, older terracotta pipes were installed in two-foot sections without smooth joints, so things like baby wipes and feminine hygiene products—which should never be put in a toilet—can become trapped.”

If tree roots have destroyed or collapsed your sewer line and it’s just too far gone, Sewer Cleaning Company can also handle the excavation to replace the line. They have all of the equipment needed—Bobcats, excavators, even drones—to replace your old sewer line professionally. “Excavation is a last resort,” he assures. “But if it has to be done, people are relieved that we have the experience, skill, and equipment to do it ourselves and do it right.”
