Do You Need Sewer Cleaning? 3 Ways to Tell December 27, 2018

Do You Need Sewer Cleaning? 3 Ways to Tell, North Branford, Connecticut

You rely on your sewer line to carry all the waste from your home to the municipal sewer. If tree roots, pipe bends, or grease clogs interfere, you could find yourself with backed-up sewage and foul smells pervading your home. However, there are a few ways to catch this problem early. Watch for these signs, and you’ll know when you need to call an expert for sewer cleaning.

Watch for These 3 Indicators That You Need Sewer Cleaning

1. Simultaneously Clogged Fixtures

If you have a clogged bathtub or a slow-draining sink, the cause is probably a ball of hair or a jammed trap. However, if several fixtures throughout your home have backed up at the same time, your sewer line could be at fault. You’ll likely first notice these issues in toilets, bathtubs, and showers because their drains are closer to the ground than other fixtures.

2. Bad Odors

Decaying food and rotting grease in kitchen sink traps can create a stench, and sulfates in the water can also be to blame. However, if you notice a similar smell coming from multiple drains, the problem is likely due to backed-up sewage. Calling a professional for sewer cleaning will resolve this issue quickly.

3. Unusual Backups

Does your bathtub spit up water when you flush the toilet? Are you dealing with an overflowing toilet every time you run the washing machine? If so, you’re likely dealing with a clogged sewer drain. In the first issue, the toilet water can’t escape to the sewer, so it comes back up through the lowest drain. Similarly, as the washing machine tries to drain, it can push water up into the toilet, causing unpleasant overflowing.
