Signs Your Property Needs Sewer Cleaning

by | Jun 28, 2018 | Business

What sort of plumbing and draining system does your home use? Most urban and many suburban properties have public water and sewer supplies. This is a preferred system for many because it means no worries about a water well or a septic system, and no high replacement or repair costs either. However, being on public utilities does not mean a zero maintenance lifestyle. According to one expert, “While it’s true that a sewer connection tends to be easier to maintain than a sump pump, clogs can still occur and the results can be disastrous if ignored.” That is why you must know how to read the signs that a sewer cleaning is required for your home or property.

The Warning Signs

It can be difficult to know when a sewer cleaning is necessary, and many people mistake the most common red flags as typical plumbing issues. Let’s take a look at three of the biggest warning signs:

  • Drains and toilets that gurgle – It is not all that natural for your toilets or drains to make loud gurgling sounds. If this is accompanied by very slow drains and/or frequent clogging, it is probably a good idea to consider sewer cleaning. If that noise comes from plumbing that has not been recently used (i.e. the toilet that hasn’t been flushed for hours suddenly gurgles), it is important to get everything checked immediately.
  • Someone has been flushing improper items – You may not have known that a member of the household was using the toilet like a trash can and flushing anything from feminine hygiene products to facial wipes. These often cannot make it past the sewer lines and lead to slow, but steady clogs. It can often mean that a full cleaning is required to eliminate the problem.
  • Floor drains are seeming to fail – If you notice that your washing machine overflows and that the floor drains meant to help prevent problems when that particular issue strikes are also not draining…it’s time for a sewer cleaning.
