At SOS Drain and Sewer Service, we are happy to help our Minneapolis and St. Paul neighbors when they have plumbing problems.
Still, there are times that a homeowner should consider calling a drain professional even if there is not a major problem. The sewage system may seem fine, or there may be small clues can hint at a big problem down the road.
Here are a few situations when an inspection might be a great idea:
- if you hear gurgling sounds in sewer pipes
- if a faint sewer odor is coming into the home
- if there are shrubs within 10 feet of the main sewer line
- if there are trees within 20 feet of the main sewer line
- if the main sewer line is more than 20 years old
- if you recently purchased an older home
If you hear gurgling or smell sewer gas, there is a chance that roots or other materials have damaged the main sewer line. While there may not be any immediate trouble, it’s probably only a matter of time before the line fails. When it does, raw sewerage will enter your home and you will have a costly and time-consuming mess.
Perhaps everything is going well with your sewage system; it may just be a long time since a professional has inspected the main line. Wouldn’t you feel good knowing that a professional made a proper inspection? Taking care of potential issues before damage occurs can save thousands of dollars. Often, all that is needed is a drain cleaning of the main line. How much better you will feel knowing that the sewer line is in good working order!
