When Should Your Sewers Be Cleaned? 3 Signs To Let You Know

Posted on

Your sewers around and inside your home do a lot of work. They carry the waste from your home to the waste facility to be cleaned and separated. Without these sewer lines, there would be a massive waste problem all across the entire world. Your sewers should be monitored and maintained in order for them to work properly and perform the functions they were meant to perform. Part of this maintenance includes cleaning your sewer lines, which should be done by a professional plumber. There are signs that would indicate that your sewers are ready to be cleaned.  Read on for a few of these signs. 

1. Your Drains Are Gurgling

Your drains may gurgle when you attempt to flush the toilet, or you attempt to use other drains in your home. This may indicate a problem such as a clog in the sewer line down further in your sewer line. These drain lines need to be cleaned out in order to get rid of the clog. Without cleaning out the clog, it could worsen and could end up creating a backup of sewer waste in your home. The backup could be very messy and could create a big issue for you that will need to be cleaned up and could be even more costly. Get on top of the problem by paying attention to it and having your sewer lines cleaned.

2. Your Drains Smell

Your drains will have an odor to them from time to time, especially if something is clogged in it, or you've just used the drains for something foul. If they give off an odor all the time without having used the drains, it could be an issue that you need to take care of. The odors coming out of the drain may indicate a clog, or they could indicate some other issue, so your sewer lines need to be cleaned.

3. Your Drains Are Slow Draining

If your drains are slowly draining in your home, it may indicate an issue further out in the sewer line. You should have your drains cleaned out. The slow-moving drains will eventually catch up and could cause more of a problem for you. Those slow-moving drains can eventually become a backup in your home.

If you have any of these issues, you should have your drains cleaned out by a professional plumber. Call a sewer cleaning professional in your area today to inspect your sewer lines and to have them cleaned.
