Are you having issues with a slow drain in your kitchen sink or bathtub? Is your toilet making all sorts of gurgling noises each time you flush? These are all signs that your sewer line may be in desperate need of some cleaning. There are times you can prevent clogged sewer lines in your home but, unfortunately, there are also situations that you have no control over. Curt & Jerry Sewer Service has cleaned out sewer lines in homes across Carmel. Keep these factors in mind the next time you’re home is experiencing sewer line problems.

4 Common Places a Home Sewer Line Can Become Clogged

1. Kitchen Drain

Pouring grease or oil down the kitchen drain a few times may not seem like a big deal but, over time, it can cause major damage. Once cooled down, the grease solidifies and sticks to the inside of the pipes. Instead of pouring the oil down the kitchen drain, use a jar or can to store the used oil. Once it’s full, simply place it in the garbage bin.

2. Toilet

Flushing debris that is not meant to go through your home’s septic system down the toilet can lead to all sorts of sewer line issues. It may not cause a clog right away, but it can lead to a massive obstruction over time. The following items should be thrown away and never tossed down the toilet:

  • Feminine products
  • Paper towels
  • Facial tissue
  • And other similar debris

3. Bathroom Drains

We’ve all experienced that slow, annoying bathtub drain or clogged bathroom sink. Again, this doesn’t usually happen overnight but is due to months, maybe even years, of becoming plugged and overloaded with debris, including:

  • Hair
  • Toothpaste
  • Haircare products
  • Makeup 
  • Skincare products

4. Sewer Pipes

Clogs don’t come only from within your home. They may arise from a situation that is completely out of your control. Tree roots can infiltrate the pipes buried in your yard, causing broken and damaged pipes. A backed-up sewer line could have originated from a clog that was started by the previous homeowners. Sewer line problems truly can originate from a number of issues.
