Three Signs You May Have Sewage Problems

10/17/2019 (Permalink)

Water damage does not just come from leaky pipes and intense storms. Lucky for you, there is any other potential hazard lurking in your plumbing-sewage cleaning. However, if you know what to look for, you can get it under control before any real damage occurs. 


Have you ever noticed toilets overflow while you are taking a shower? This is not just happenstance, it is indicative of a clog between the toilet and the sewer. This clog prevents the water in your shower from draining, so it backs up into the waste water lines. From these lines, the first available place to escape is usually your toilet. There are a few possible soutions:

  • use a specialized plumbing tool called a snake
  • Locate and clear your drain clean out
  • Call professional restoration services


Have you just taken a bath, but now the water will not drain from the tub? You may also see this backup happening in your kitchen sink. This means you probably have a clogged pipe-either somewhere in your waste water lines or directly below your drain. This may be as easy as clearing hair or debris from your drain, but in not, it would be best to get help as soon as possible. You will want to head this situation off before more overflow causes water damage to your bathroom or kitchen.


If your yard consistently smells like sewage and appears more damp than normal, you may have a larger sewage cleaning issue. If a sewage line has collapsed or your septic tank is overflowing, your yard may be filled with waste. You should not attempt to handle this situation yourself, as it can require difficult and delicate work. Make sure to call a professional service right away.

Issues with sewage cleaning can get kind of gross, but do not let that put you off from spotting and handling any problems that may arise. Remember, there are people out there that can fix it for you!
