10 Signs Your Business Needs a Sewer Line Repair

It is extremely important to seek out a sewer line repair service at the first sign of trouble. More often than not, the cause of sewer problems is a damaged sewer line. There are several indicators of a damaged sewer line businesses need to keep an eye out for. Here are 10 signs a business may need to consider emergency sewer line repair. Please note that the only way to be 100% sure about what’s going on with your sewer line is to call a sewerologist to get an inspection done. 

Sewage Backups and Blockages

This is usually caused by something blocking the line, but if there is a backup whenever there is flushing or when the sink and tub drain, then the problem is likely the sewer line.

Unmistakable Sewer Gas Odor

Smelling gas inside or directly around the building is a prime indicator of a crack in the sewer line. Sanitary and properly functioning lines are air tight, and the lines would permit odor.

Developing Mold Problems

Since mold needs a humidity level of at least 55 percent, then a cracked sewer line behind a wall sets the perfect condition for mold to begin growing.

Slow Drainage

A slow drain is the precursor to a backup. Since blockages are a sign of a damaged line, then slow drains are too, especially if both persist after line cleanings. It is important to call for information on drain cleaning services if you are experiencing problems.

Unusual, Lush Green Patches on the Lawn

A damaged line at a point under the yard will cause leaked sewage to fertilize the patches of grass above it, so be watching for unusually vibrant patches lawn.

Indentation Under Pavers or in the Lawn

An indication this is happening is when the law dips or indents over the line.
