3 Signs You Need Sewer Drain Line Cleaning, Kalispell, Montana

Your sewer and septic system allows for the sanitizing and removal of wastewater in your home. Flushing certain items, shedding hair in the shower, and disposing of grease down the sink can all lead to clogs. To prevent this, a plumber must perform sewer drain line cleaning. It can be difficult to know just how often this service is required, however. To help, Flo-Rite Plumbing, a top plumbing company in Kalispell, MT, shares a few signs a cleaning is necessary.

Keep an eye out for the following red flags:

  • Strange Odors: Odd smells can accumulate in your home for a variety of reasons. However, if you have scrubbed every inch of the house and still can't shake the scent, it may be coming from your sewage line. See if the smells get stronger as you get closer to the drain. If so, you probably require professional line cleaning. 

  • sewer drain line cleaningGurgling Noises: If the buildup is bad enough, you may hear the water gurgle as it struggles to go down. Bubbling noises from your drains is a sign your system is clogged. Note the speed at which the water drains. A slow-to-drain bathtub that gurgles requires immediate sewer drain line cleaning. If blockage becomes too severe, you risk bursting the pipes.

  • Water Damage: Water damage is a persistent threat to your home. It can warp and ruin your wood floors, weaken your foundation, and facilitate mold growth. If your pipes or septic tank is leaking or overflowing, the excess water can make its way into your house. When you notice water spots or stains on your walls or floors, sewage buildup may be the issue.
