You may or may not know this, but a clogged sewer line can backup into your property. That is perhaps one of the most disgusting things that can happen to a property owner. It means that raw sewage and wastewater escapes out of the toilets and the drains in the sinks, showers, and tubs and enters into the property. Just image how bad it would be if raw sewage and wastewater covered your floors, walls, and ceilings? That is obviously a worst-case scenario. However, it can happen if your sewer line is clogged and you fail to have it taken care of.

The good news is that before it happens you will start to notice that there is a problem within the sewer line. So what are some signs that you have a clogged sewer line? First and foremost, if the toilets do not flush properly it’s a tell tale sign that you have a clogged sewer line. In essence, if you need to use a plunger on a frequent basis because the toilet is slow to flush or simply won’t flush you have an issue that goes well beyond plunging the toilet. Another tell tale sign that you have a clogged sewer line is if the drains in your sinks, showers or tubs start to drain slowly or are not draining at all.

This holds especially true if you have been pouring a liquid drain cleaner down the drains and it’s still not making any difference. Yet another sign that you have a clogged sewer line at your property is if you start to smell raw sewage coming from the toilets or drains in your sinks, showers, and tubs. Last but certainly not least; you may start to see puddles of wastewater and raw sewage forming in your basement or your yard or grounds. So what should you do if you notice any of these signs? Contact us immediately.

We will schedule a time for a technician to come to your property in order to determine if you have a clogged sewer line. Often times the clog can be easily removed and the toilets, sinks, showers, and tubs will start working correctly. However, a clogged sewer line may also mean that the sewer pipe is broken and needs to be repaired. If the sewer pipe is damaged to the point of no return, it will need to be replaced. Even if the sewer line needs to be repaired or even replaced, it’s a lot better to discover that before raw sewage and wastewater backs up into your property.
