Signs You Need Sewer Cleaning

A home’s sewer system is both vital and often neglected by homeowners. The sewer line is responsible for transporting waste from your home to the city sewer main, or to the septic tank if one is being used. One of the most important ways to maintain your home’s sewer system is to have it cleaned on a regular basis. Read on to find out more about some of the signs that your sewer line needs to be cleaned.

Bad Smells

One of the signs that your sewer line is in need of cleaning is bad smells coming up through the drains. Now, if it’s just coming out of one drain it’s possible that you just need to schedule drain cleaning services. If the horrible smells are coming out of multiple drains in the home, however, it means that there’s a problem somewhere deeper in the sewer system.

Frequent Backups

Sewer clogs don’t happen all at once. They form slowly, as waste builds up on the walls of the sewer line. This restricts the flow of waste through the sewer line, resulting in more frequent backups in the home’s plumbing systems. If your toilet or any other plumbing systems seem to be having more frequent backups than usual, call a professional and have them look at your sewer line.

It’s Been a While

Even if you haven’t had any obvious symptoms that indicate a problem with your sewer line, it’s a good idea to have it cleaned out every couple of years. This helps to prevent problems from arising in the future, and to keep your sewer system running more smoothly.
