Did you know that when a clog develops in the sewer line of a commercial property that you own or manage it may very well cause nasty sewage to back up from the drains and into the building? If this happens, it can cause a great deal of damage to the items located within the building. It can also cause a great deal of damage to the ceilings, floors, and walls. On top of that, the cost to fix the problem can be incredibly expensive and time consuming. The good news is that this catastrophe can actually be prevented if you can identify the fact that you have a clogged sewer line in the first place.

In essence, when you can identify the clog in the sewer line you can have it fixed before the junk literally hits the fan. Since the sewer line is buried within the ceilings, floors, and walls within the building, and underground outside of the building, you cannot simply look at the pipes to see if there is a problem. However, there is a fairly easy way to tell if you have a clogged sewer line. If you or anyone else in the building notices that it is taking longer for water to drain down the sinks, and or the toilets are taking longer to flush, it is a strong indication that you have a clogged sewer line.

If the sinks and or toilets are making gurgling sounds it is another  indicator that you have a clogged sewer line. Last but certainly not least, if the sinks and or toilets have a funky smell, it is another good indicator that you have a clogged sewer line at your commercial building. As this point you may be curious as to what causes the clogged sewer line. Blockages in the pipeline can happen from the buildup of bathroom waste, and other items that are either flushed down the toilets or poured directly into the drains. These items can block the pipe immediately, or build up over time and eventually block the pipe.

A clogged sewer line can also be caused by the invasion of tree roots into the main sewer line. For example, trees and shrubs on the grounds are attracted to the sewer pipes because they provide a water source. Tiny roots will eventually enter into the sewer line through the joints and other weak spots within the pipes. Once they enter the sewer line, these tiny roots tend to grow quickly. Eventually they will clog the sewer line.
