Preventing Sewer Problems in Your Roanoke Home

clogged drain pipe

Nobody wants to face sewer problems in their Roanoke home. What goes down the drain should stay down. Sometimes, though, it doesn’t, and it’s time to call a licensed plumber.

The most obvious sign of a sewer line problem is sewage backing up into the home through the toilet or sink drains. That’s pretty gross. Dealing with these problems can be a smelly, nasty, and dirty job, but your friends at Southern Trust are more than happy to help out in an emergency.

Sewer Trouble Signs

There are many potential causes for residential sewer problems. The sewer line could be obstructed. Someone in your household might have been flushing wipes — even so-called flushable ones —or sanitary products. The lines could be clogged with grease or other debris, or tree roots could have infiltrated them.

Although a problem might not be obvious at first, Roanoke homeowners should be on the lookout for these signs of sewer trouble:

  • Slow drains: If water in your bathroom or kitchen is draining slowly, it could be a sign that the line is beginning to clog.
  • Yucky smells: Foul smells originating in your drains can mean that sewage is not adequately draining from your home.
  • Lawn clues: If sewer lines outside the home are leaking, you might spot especially thick patches of grass or the soil might be squishy.
