An Issue with Your Sewer Should Be Taken Care Of Immediately
Are your drains flowing slowly? Or maybe there’s an unexplainable smell wafting through your home. If there’s a problem with their sewer line, chances are they’re aware of it long before you call a plumber. Why, then, do so many people put off calling a professional until it is too late?
Sewer repair may seem like a daunting task to handle, but avoiding it will only lead to further suffering down the line. An untreated sewer line failure could lead to sewage back-ups, foundation, damages, and much more. Avoid this and instead call a professional at the first sign of a sewer issue.
A Sewer Leak May Lead To More Damage In Your Home
You might be able to ignore the smell of sewage in your home(somehow) or constant clog in your drains, but doing so could lead to a series of troubles for your home.
Depending on the location of your line’s leak, you may be allowing errant moisture to enter your home’s walls. When wet, most home’s walls will begin to grow mold. This is practically unavoidable in walls that remain wet over time as mold spores lay dormant in most building materials used in houses. Once your home begins to grow mold, you may find that your family has trouble breathing as many molds release mycotoxins into the air.
If that wasn’t bad enough, the same leak that can cause your home to grow mold might also damage your home’s foundation. When the ground beneath your home becomes saturated with water, it is no longer able to sustain the weight of your home. As such, its foundation will begin to warp and crack, leading to problems in the rest of your home.
Avoid The Expense and Mess Of Back-ups
When your sewer line is no longer operating properly, your sewage must find someplace to go. Often, that place is right back where it came from. No one wants to deal with a sewage back up. Not only are they costly to clean up, but they’ll also still require more work to fix once they happen.
If you notice something wrong with your sewer line, then chances are there is sewage back up somewhere in your future. Why not tackle the problem before it begins to spray all over your bathroom walls? Calling a professional plumber at the first sign of trouble will save you time, money, and a big headache.
You Can’t Fix A Problem With Your Sewer Line By Yourself.
Pop quiz: Where is your sewer line located? Chances are you have no idea. Even if you think you know its approximate location, who has the time or energy to go digging holes to get at the problem? Plumbers do, that’s who. The average homeowner legally cannot work on their own sewer lines unless they receive the proper training and certification. More often than not, amateur plumbing only leads to more problems down the line.
If you have a problem with your sewer line, it isn’t about to disappear on its own. Someone needs to handle it, and it may as well be a professional.
