Call a Plumber if You Notice Signs of a Sewer Clog
Clogs are commonly caused by a gradual buildup of hair, dirt, grease, food, soap, sediment, or other foreign objects. Tree roots can also sneak through cracks in your pipes and cause obstructions.
Because there are so many reasons why drains and sewers can clog up, it is often impossible to know the cause of the issue without an inspection. However, knowing these common symptoms can help you know when to call a plumber and avoid bigger problems in the future:
- Your drain or toilet is making gurgling noises or burping sounds
- Slow-moving drains in one or more areas in your home
- Overflow or other water backups in your toilet, tub, or sink
- Sewage smell or other bad odors coming from your drains
