No one likes the smell of sewage, but it isn’t just the stink you must worry about! Clogged or damaged sewer lines can not only cause damage to your property, but inhaling the vapors that produce the sewage smell can also damage your health.
If non-flushable items happen to get flushed down a toilet, they have the potential to build up and clog the sewer line. A sewer line clog can also result from broken pipes, or issues with the soil and/or tree roots.
If other appliances are also backing up with water, such as your shower, it may be a sign that your sewer line is clogged.
Here are a few signs of sewer clogs to look out for:
- Sewage smell
- Gurgling sounds from the toilet
- Water coming from other sources, such as a shower, or when using a washing machine
- New bright green patches of grass in the lawn
If you suspect you have a clogged sewer line, call John The Plumber as soon as possible. Ignoring this issue could be damaging to your home and health.
