    How Often Should You Clean Your Septic Tank?

    Did you know that sewage and wastewater contain harmful toxins and micro-organisms? Without proper treatment, these can pollute underground water sources leading to infections and poisoning.

    Why Hydrovac is the Right Choice for You

    Hydrovac or hydro excavation refers to the process of removing soil from an area using pressurized water. The water is injected into the ground through a hose to liquefy the soil. An air conveyance system or a vacuum is then used to transfer the wet soil to a debris storage tank. This is a non-destructive and precise method to locate any underground utilities.

    Drain Cleaning - A Way to Prevent Basement Flooding

    The drainage system in your house plays an important role in maintaining cleanliness and hygiene. It can be bad for your health and convenience when contaminants accumulate and clog the pipes. Keeping them thoroughly clean is tricky, as they are out of sight. Blocked drains cause water to flow in the reverse direction. Since the overflowing water will first flow to the lowest points in buildings, basements

    get flooded. It usually happens when the main plumbing line, which channels wastewater from washrooms or appliances, is blocked. If only one isolated area is clogged, only the related appliances will face a problem. In such situations, hire experienced professionals from Canessco Services Inc. for quality drain cleaning services, and better drain water management.
