Your sewer system is designed to function as unobtrusively as possible, which often leads to it being neglected when it comes to professional services. Sewer systems require maintenance just as often as any other system, however. If you don’t have your sewer system cleaned often enough, you are setting yourself up for a whole range of problems in the future. Let’s take a look at some of the signs that you need to have your sewer system cleaned out.

Frequent Backups

The occasional drain clog is bound to happen every now and then. However, if you are experiencing frequent drain clogs then the problem is likely located further down in your sewer system. You probably have at least a partial clog in the sewer system, which is affecting the drains in the house. This is especially likely if you are experiencing clogs throughout the house.

Bad Smells

As waste builds up in the sewer line, gases will become trapped in the home. This will cause them to travel back up through the pipes and out of the drains. If you have bad smells coming out of the drains in your home, it is possible that you need drain cleaning.

It’s Been a Year

Even if you haven’t noticed any other signs that you need drain cleaning, it’s a good idea to schedule it at least once a year. This will make sure that you don’t have any sewer problems sneak up on you. If it’s been at least a year since you’ve last had your sewer system cleaned out, you should call and schedule it today.
