Reading Time: 3 minutes

Believe it or not, a damaged or clogged sewer can be a common issue in local households. If small issues are left unchecked, you might end up with an expensive problem on your hands over time which will require sewer repair.

We highly recommend you call the experts in all things rooter, sewer and drains if you have any concerns about potential clogs or issues in your systems. With the experience, knowledge, and the right tools for the job, you’ll be thankful you called.

Although we recommend expert advice and on-site investigations whenever there may be room for concern, we have a few tips and signs for you to be aware of as you take care of your sewer lines to prevent any damage or need for repair.

If you know what to look out for, you’ll be sure to stop any problems before they become serious. Take a look at some of the points we mention below.

What Causes A Damaged Sewer?

There are many factors that can cause a clogged drain or sewer line and at Art Rooter, Sewer & Drain Cleaning, there is nothing that could possibly surprise us! Equipped with expert knowledge, years of experience, and staff who are well-versed in all the necessary responses to sewer line, drain or rooter needs, we are the best in the business.

The main things that can cause clogged sewer lines are:

  • Hair
  • Sanitary products that were flushed
  • Food
  • Paper products
  • Grease and soap buildup
  • Anything else that should not be flushed down the sewer line

5 Signs To Watch Out For

You will know when something isn’t right with your sewer line. For one, it might start smelling really bad! This is something you ultimately want to prevent if you can. However, take a look at some signs to watch out for:

  1. Your Toilet Bowl Water Level Changes

    If your toilet bowl fills up when you flush it, there might be something preventing a smooth and easy flush. This may just require a thorough drain cleaning, but it is better to be sure.

  2. There Is An Unusual Or “Sewer” Smell

    If your house starts to smell like sewer or there is a bad smell in general, it might be worth having a professional take a look at your drains. If your animals are attracted to the toilet, then it might mean something is wrong!

  3. The Lawn Is Soggy

    When you walk outside and you notice a smell or your lawn is starting to become a bit of a swamp, it’s time to consider looking into the health of your sewer lines and drain systems.

  4. Gurgling Noises Or Sounds Coming From The Toilet Or Pipes

    Those gurgling noises coming from the drain might not be entirely harmless. It’s best to check out any drains or sewer systems that might be making strange sounds.

  5. Water Bills Are Higher Than Usual

    If your water bills are higher than usual it could mean that there is a leak somewhere in your system. Where there is a leak, there might be damage.

Prevention Is Always Best

When it comes to looking after your drain and sewer systems, our best advice is to take the necessary precautions to avoid potential issues.

Part of a great prevention strategy is to ensure that you know exactly what you need to look out for, and also to be aware of some of the things you should not allow down your sewer lines. If you’re ever in doubt, it is best to call a professional who will know how to diagnose the issue correctly.
