Issues with your sewer lines are extremely problematic for any homeowner, and are best checked straight away in order to prevent further costly damages from occurring. Often times, it may be tricky for a homeowner to know whether or not they need sewer repair or maintenance. This is why sewer inspections are so critical. Although problems with your sewer lines may be difficult to spot immediately, there are a few things that you can look out for that can help to determine whether or not you should get something further inspected.
We may recommend a sewer inspection if you notice:
Slower drains: Have you noticed your drains running slower than usual? That shouldn't be happening, and it is usually an indication of sewer blockage that could quickly lead to sewer backup - something that you want to avoid. There are a number of factors that could be causing this blockage, including but not limited to the intrusion of tree roots or sewer cracks.
Clogged drains: You will typically be able to tell whether or not your home's drains are clogged by the speed of your drains, as mentioned above. Clogged drains are extremely problematic, and could even cause potential sewer leaks that can lead to unpleasant indoor mold. If you notice any sings of clogged drains in your home, contact us for a sewer inspection. While we're at it, we will be able to tell you all current problems with your drains, big or small. The sooner you get an inspection, the more you will be able to prevent potentially costly damages from happening. We also offer plumbing maintenance including hydro jetting to keep pipes clear and clean.
Foul odors in or around your home: If you notice a sewer gas odor in your home, please call a professional straight away. You should never smell sewer odors in your house, and if you do, it means that there is a crack in your sanitary sewer lines. Sewer gas odors can be extremely unpleasant and detrimental to your health.
Lush or dead patches in your lawn: Lush or dead patches in your lawn can be very unfortunate, especially if you as a homeowner spend time taking care of your lawn. If you notice any indentation or dead patches, it could mean that you have a cracked sewer line that is causing your lawn's soil to dissipate.
Backflow: Backflow in your toilet or sinks is a sign of clogged drains, and could potentially lead to worse problems if not taken care of as soon as possible. As mentioned previously, there are a number of reasons why your home's drains are clogged. An expert will be able to pinpoint the problem through a professional sewer camera inspection. Without the necessary equipment, it can be difficult to really spot what is causing the problem in the first place.
Indoor mold: If you notice mold in any areas inside your home, such as on your ceiling, it is typically a sign that you have had a sewer issue for quite some time and should get it checked right away. Home mold is usually an indication of a leak in your sewer lines. Not only does this create unpleasant mold that can be detrimental for yours and your family's health, but if left unnoticed, it could lead to serious damages that could cost you a great amount of money. Lookout for any signs of mold in order to avoid further damage from happening inside your home.
