Since your sewer lines are hidden from plain view, it can be difficult to judge when and if there’s a problem. In many cases, sewer cleanings are requested during times of emergency. At Curt & Jerry Sewer Service, we recommend you stay ahead of costly problems and learn the tell-tale signs of problems with your sewer system. 

Drain Cleaning Sewer Line Cleaning

As-Needed Basis

Typically, sewer lines can be cleaned on an as-needed basis. But a good preventative measure is to have your sewer lines inspected every 18-22 months. Sewer camera inspections allow our professionals to visually determine what potential issues may be inside your lines.

Older Homes

If your sewer line is older than 40 years old, it’s a good idea to request an inspection. Older steel pipes can build up sediment from years of corrosion and eventually cause leaks. Sewer cleaning maintenance now could save you from a big bill later.

Gurgling Noises

If you hear your drain making a gurgling or bubbling sound after using the sink or shower, then it is most likely the result of a blocked drain. This happens when air bubbles cannot travel through the pipe and end up getting expelled at the nearest vent. These strange sounds are a red-flag to get your drains cleaned.

Slow Drains

Slow drainage and/or water backup are tell-tale signs of needing your sewer line cleaned. It’s best practice to call our experts right away before sewage builds up and spills into your home, creating a costly cleanup. Having the problem diagnosed by our trained professionals with a video inspection is the best course of action for homeowners.
