Slow Drainage

When you’re experiencing drainage problems in just one plumbing fixture, then it’s likely just a simple clog that can be easily resolved via professional drain cleaning methods.

But when several of your property’s fixtures are experiencing slow drainage, then it’s a clear warning sign that your blockage is originating deep within your plumbing system. These types of deep plumbing blockages will typically be found in main sewer lines.

Gassy/Foul Odors

When your home or business’ sewer line has become broken, your nose is going to give you a clear heads up. It’s important to remember that you should never be smelling any kind of foul odors coming from your property’s drains, which is why this is such a serious warning sign.

It’s possible that you could be smelling toxic gases coming from your sewer system that are slowly but surely coming into your living space, so this is something that must be addressed as quickly as possible!

Mildew/Mold Development

There could be many causes for mold development throughout your property, but it’s very possible that your mildew problems are the result of sewage backup or water that’s seeping from a damaged sewer line.

Mold can end up causing all sorts of health issues and is also very expensive to fully eradicate, so it’s the type of warning sign that needs to be taken seriously before matters get worse!

Critters & Crawlers

If you’re suddenly beginning to notice an increasing amount of rodents and bugs throughout your property, then it could possibly mean that you have a damaged or broken sewer line.

Rodents will often live in sewer systems, but they can also squeeze through tiny cracks and end up inside your house as well. Insects and other bus will often begin breeding in cracked drainpipes when there’s stagnant water as well, which can very quickly lead to a multitude of insects and bugs throughout your property.
