Did you know that a clogged sewer line might be causing your plumbing issues? Here’s a telltale sign. If the toilets in your building are having trouble flushing than it may very well be due to a clogged sewer line. Another sign is if the drains in the sinks, showers, and tubs in your building are making a gurgling sound or the water doesn’t drain down quickly when people turn on the faucets. Perhaps the most obvious signs that you have a clogged sewer line is when you, your employees, and or your tenants can smell raw sewage inside the building.

So, what should you do if any of these signs are happening at your property? First and foremost, contact us immediately for emergency service. Next, inform everyone that works or lives in the building to stop flushing the toilets, and to stop using the sinks, showers, or tubs until further notice. Obviously, you don’t want to panic everyone, so you may want to add the fact that the issue is being taken care of and all will be back up and running within a few hours. We will send out a technician right away. He or she will determine exactly what the problem is.

If the sewer line is clogged, the technician will flush out the sewer pipes. That way, you’ll have the plumbing system back up and running in no time at all. If the sewer line is broken, the technician will pinpoint the exact location of the break. That way, you can have it fixed in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible. So, what are the typical causes of a clogged sewer line? First and foremost, sometimes people flush things down the toilet or pour things down the drain that they’re not supposed to. There are great deals of items that cause clogs.

For examples, if you own or manage a residential building than children will often flush their plush toys down the toilet. In addition, your tenants may be pouring grease down the drain. Both of these things cause the sewer line to clog up. Another culprit is paper products. The only paper that’s supposed to be flushed down the toilet is toilet paper. Everything else, especially paper towels and baby wipes tend to cause clogs in the sewer line. Feminine products cause a great deal of damage as well.

Your best bet is to inform your employees and or tenants that they can cause a great deal of problems if they flush items down the toilet or pour things down the drains that they’re not supposed to.
