SEWER INSPECTION AND REPAIR.
- Sewer Line Inspection. Our sewer lining process begins with a video inspection of your sewer line. Our technicians send a specialized camera through your existing sewer access point to gain a clear picture of the whole condition of your sewer line. Our video inspection pinpoints the precise points of repair by showing exactly what is wrong with your line and where the problems in your line lie. You’ll receive an online copy of your inspection video along with the complete report highlighting the problems and detailing our determination of the best approach to your sewer repair using the most appropriate methods we have available. All of this is provided to you to assist you with making the best decision possible for repairing your sewer line
- Cleaning of Sewer Line. On the day of your lining we will use a mechanical cutter and/or hydro-jetter to clean out all roots, scale buildup, broken pieces of pipe and other debris in order to return the pipe back to its original diameter.
- Pre-Sewer Lining Video Inspection and Liner Preparation. After cleaning your line, we will again send our camera into it to ensure all looks good and the pipe is ready to be lined. We will then accurately measure the length of liner necessary and cut the felt liner to this size. Once cut to the appropriate size, we saturate the felt liner with our liner material to prep it for installation.
- Installation of Liner. During installation, our technicians insert the prepped liner into your line. Once in position (inverted) the CIPP liner is inflated by air pressure, pressing the liner against the host pipe. Steam or hot water is then circulated within the newly applied liner to begin the curing process.
- Post Sewer Lining Video Inspection. Once the resins have cured, we remove the internal bladder, leaving only the newly lined pipe. Once the sewer repair is complete we send our camera into your line one last time to ensure that the liner was indeed installed successfully. Once confirmed, your sewer is once again ready for use.
We perform our lining process with as little disruption and service interruption to you as possible. The entire procedure is typically completed in one day so we’re in and out – and you’re only out of service for just the length of time it takes to line your sewer.
AIR DUCT TRENCHLESS CASTING AND DUCT LINING
The customer was experiencing heavy amounts of sand and dust blowing out of the air vents in their home. The underground air ducts in the home were heavily rusted with sand and debris coming in from the joints and cracks in the pipe. We restored the underground air ducts with our Trenchless Casting process which gives the deteriorated air ducts a strong structure. We then apply two applications of our rubberized Duct Armor material to completely seal the system.
In this video, Trenchless Innovations uses our Trenchless Casting Mortar process to rebuild and restructure rusted and deteriorated underground air ducts at a home in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. Trenchless Casting involves using cement mortar to restore the structural integrity back into severely deteriorated, broken and collapsed underground air ducts. In this case the connections, elbows, and plenum were severely rusted. Because of their condition, the pipes had to first be mortared to make them strong enough for lining with our innovative Duct Armor material. Although not used with every restoration project, Trenchless Casting provides additional strength to our air duct lining process for pipes that are in pretty serious disrepair. Once Trenchless Casting was completed, we lined the entire length of the ductwork with Duct Armor, creating brand-new, strong pipes guaranteed to last. Our lining process increased the home comfort of the homeowner by eliminating the health issues deteriorated ducts can create, leaving them with cleaner, healthier indoor air to breathe in their home.
SEWER REPAIR – ORLAND PARK, ILLINOIS
A property manager in Orland Park, Illinois called us because the sewer was repeatedly backing up into the first floor apartment of their rental unit. Our televising revealed that there was an offset and a hole in the cast iron pipe, creating a break in the line that was causing the backups.

The EPA estimates that indoor air can be up to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air. If you’re experiencing underground air duct problems or noticing ill health effects while in your home, your air ducts could be to blame. In this video, Trenchless Innovations uses our Trenchless Casting process to rebuild and restructure rusted and deteriorated underground air ducts at a home in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. Trenchless Casting involves using cement mortar to restore the structural integrity back into severely deteriorated, broken and collapsed underground air ducts.

We are applying our Trenchless Casting to the deteriorated underground air ducts in Palos Heights, Illinois. This process restores the structural integrity of the deteriorated air ducts. The customer was experiencing sand and debris blowing out of the air vents and there was a musty smell throughout the home. On our next visit, we will apply our first of two applications of Duct Armor product, sealing the underground air duct system.
UNDERGROUND AIR DUCT LINING
Water in ducts, sand, dirt, reduced airflow and unpleasant odors coming from vents are all common signs of deteriorated underground ductwork. Deteriorated air ducts allow contaminants such as dirt and debris, harmful radon gases or, if a home has transite piping, asbestos fibers into the indoor air. The underground air duct lining technology offered by Trenchless Innovations lines your ducts through the registers, completely coating them and restoring them to like-new condition. Trenchless Innovations is proud to use Duct Armor, a proprietary, environmentally-safe, water-based latex material, in our duct lining process that is safe for humans and pets and contains no harmful ingredients. Underground air duct lining provides many long-lasting benefits including complete restoration of old, deteriorated underground ducts, a quick and non-invasive process that eliminates the restoration work commonly found after system replacement using traditional repair methods and cleaner, healthier air in your home. Experience increased home comfort with underground duct lining so you and your family can breathe easier knowing your indoor air is clean, healthy and comfortable.
ABOVE GROUND DUCT ENCAPSULATION
Many above ground air ducts are covered with a fiberglass duct board liner for sound reduction and insulation purposes. Over time, this liner deteriorates, causing fiberglass fibers to break free and become airborne. In this video, we use a spray lining robot to safely encapsulate the fiberglass duct board, preventing fiberglass fibers from finding a way into the indoor air. As the operator pulls the robot back at a steady speed, the front nozzle spins steadily, ensuring all walls of the ducts are encapsulated. Our process is quick and non-intrusive, requiring only one application, and gets you back up and running in no time. The best part? Our encapsulation process improves indoor air quality in your home or business by preventing harmful particles from becoming airborne and entering the air you breathe.
TRENCHLESS CASTING FOR SEVERELY DETERIORATED DUCTS
If you’re experiencing problems with your underground ductwork, the experts at Trenchless Innovations can pinpoint exactly where they lie and what they are by using a small camera to record your underground ductwork. In some cases, we discover that the condition of underground air ducts are so severely deteriorated that there is no longer any structure left to them. In these cases, our trenchless casting method serves as a way to restore the structural integrity back into the ducts, thus, making them ideal for our air duct lining process. Although not used with every restoration project, trenchless casting provides additional strength to our lining process for pipes in pretty serious disrepair.
SEALING LEAKY ABOVE GROUND AIR DUCTS
Leaks and unsealed joints in your above ground ductwork allow dirt and debris to enter your indoor air. In this video, we seal leaky above ground air duct joints and connections by using a remote-controlled spray robot to do so. To begin the sealing process, a small, lightweight robot is positioned at the end of the duct. Using the robot, we can seal an entire system or just the joints and connections. Our sealing process promotes healthier air and increases the efficiency of overhead heating and air conditioning systems.
