Sewage Backup and/or Blockages

If flushing the toilet in one bathroom is causing water to back up in another room in your home, there is a good chance you have a problem with your sewer line. Blockages and clogs can be diverting water and forcing an alternate route due to a clog.

Sewer backup is a definite red flag you have a clogged sewer line. A sewer repair contractor can use a sewer camera to diagnose the problem.

You Smell Foul Sewage Odors

Foul sewage odors are a sure sign something is amiss. Sewers are built to be airtight to keep smells and other things trapped inside. Cracks, holes, and leaks will expose sewage and thus leave you with an awful smell.

In general, smelling sewage will not make you sick. However, exposure to raw sewage can make you very ill. If you encounter raw sewage, contact a plumbing professional immediately.

Slow Internal Plumbing Drains

If you are wondering why a toilet keeps getting backed up or why a particular sink is draining slowly, it could be a blockage forming within your sewer line. If left untreated, blockages can result in cracks and significant sewer problems.

If you have tried a drain unblocker or sewer snake without success, contact a plumbing professional. Over-the-counter methods can include harsh chemicals, which can damage pipes and expedite sewer problems with older plumbing hardware.

Cracks in Your Sewer Line Can Cultivate Mold

When cracks in your sewer line leak water into the walls, it can cause mold growth. Bathrooms are especially vulnerable due to increased humidity.

If you find mold growing on your ceilings or walls, the source could be from the sewer line. Even if you do not see mold but there is an odor of mold, it could be a damaged sewage pipe. It’s best to find out if you need professional sewer line repair before further damage is done to your walls or ceilings.
