Problems with your sewer line are always unpleasant and can cause a headache for homeowners. Circumstances can happen over time that cause your sewer drain to become blocked, and it’s important to recognize the signs that you may have an issue. Fortunately, Curt & Jerry Sewer Service specializes in drain and sewer cleaning to get your pipes flowing freely when you have a problem. Let’s discuss four signs that your sewer drain is blocked and needs to be cleaned out. 

Sewer Line Cleaning

1. Your Fixtures Are Draining Slowly

One of the first signs of a clogged sewer drain is right inside your house, and one that you won’t miss. If you notice that multiple fixtures are starting to drain slowly, you might have a problem. When you see standing or slow-draining water in multiple sink, bathtub, and shower drains, it’s time to call in an expert to investigate.

2. You Observe a Water Backup 

Slow-draining fixtures lead to the next sign that you have a sewer problem, and this is probably the most unpleasant of all. If you observe water from one fixture backing up into another, like toilet water inside your bathtub, you have a blockage in your sewer drain. You will need to act fast to avoid contamination.

3. You Smell Foul Odors in Your Drains

If you smell sewage in or around your house, this warrants a deeper look. All of the bad odors associated with waste should flow along with the waste, unhindered, through your drainage lines. If you can smell sewage, that continual flow has likely been blocked by something.

4. You See Wet Puddles in Your Yard

Have you noticed wet spots or mud puddles in your yard when it hasn’t even rained? This is a strong indicator that your sewer line is blocked or even broken, and the wastewater is seeping into your yard. Be sure and check around an influx of recent plant growth in your yard for these wet spots.
