7 Signs to Call a Sewer Drain Cleaning Service Now

NexGen 7 Signs to Call a Sewer Drain Cleaning Service Now

When there’s a drainage problem, it may be deeper than you think. A clogged sewer drain can cause wastewater to back up and overflow from any plumbing fixture. Fortunately, NexGen provides a sewer drain cleaning service to resolve or prevent messy, hazardous, or damaging situations. But you must know when to call so we can get there in time. 

Here are seven signs you need a sewer drain cleaned now:

1. Multiple Fixtures Aren’t Working

A common sign of a clogged sewer drain is when more than one toilet clogs up. Toilets provide the most direct path to the sewer system. Thus, they’re the most reliable indicators of a sewer problem. Also, since shower and bathtub drains are lower than, for example, sinks, they’re more likely to be affected by clogged sewer lines.

2. Your Drains Are Slowing Up

If several drains are gradually getting slower, or the problem starts in one drain and spreads to others, it’s time to call a sewer drain cleaning service. As your main sewer line blocks off, water will take longer to go down. The sooner you call a professional, the more likely you can avoid a complete blockage or backup.

3. Drain Clogs Occur Frequently

The occasional kitchen or bathroom drain clog isn’t something to panic about. It’s usually easy to fix. But if you find yourself using plungers and drain cleaners more frequently, a sewer line clog or other problem may be the cause.

4. Plumbing Fixtures Are Acting Strangely

A clogged sewer drain can cause a tub or shower drain to overflow when you flush the toilet. The water from the toilet can’t drain, so it’ll back up at the lowest point. Or, the toilet may overflow when you run the washing machine. Another indication of trouble is when water in the toilet starts bubbling when you use the bathroom sink. It means air is trapped in the plumbing system, most likely due to a clogged sewer drain.

5. There’s a Pungent Odor In Your Home

Stronger and more persistent odors than usual from your toilet mean your sewer line needs to be serviced, especially if these smells are also emanating from your sink or shower drain. Exposure to sewer gas can cause eye irritation, coughing, and difficulty breathing. It can also lead to headaches, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, and trouble concentrating. Even a small amount of sewer gas can be hazardous. High levels can be fatal; if methane is present, sewer gas can also be explosive. Call for help!

6. Your Yard Is Soggy or Flooded

A wet yard isn’t usually a concern after it rains. But if there are wet spots during dry weather and all these spots align with the path of your sewer pipe, suspect a leak and call a plumber. A leak is possible whether there are sewage odors or not.

7. Water or Waste Back Up from the Clean-Out

Check the main line clean-out if you suspect a sewer line clog. Water should not flow to the top or spill out when you open the cap. If it has reached the top or you can see standing water inside, call a professional to address the clog.

Not only did his team deliver promptly and on time, they were friendly and left with a professional install of my new A/C unit. I can’t mention the AWESOME price I got, but needless to say they can beat any deal, and will give you the fastest 1st-rate service available.

Yesterday I had NexGen install a new furnace and a/c system to replace my 30-year-old system. Their representative Jeff met with me the day before to go over the system that would work best for my home, and presented me with a price I couldn’t turn down. Incidentally, NexGen’s price was over $3,000 cheaper than all other competitors.

My call was promptly returned by Jeff and an appointment was scheduled for the next day. Jeff presented an offer that I couldn’t refuse! A crew was available that day and came, saw and conquered. I had A/C that evening at a very fair price. Highly recommend NexGen.
