Sewer damage can unleash havoc in your home. The good news is that it does not have to be this way, especially if you are knowledgeable about the signs that can tell you when sewer repair in Tacoma, WA is necessary. Below are the signs to look for before you call for sewer repair services.

Toilet Backups

These kinds of backups indicate that your sewer line is damaged. A sewer backup can be caused by cracks in the sewer lines or major blockages. A toilet that’s backing up is difficult to ignore, and it’s important to schedule a sewer pipe line repair immediately. Do not try to fix the problem on your own as this can often lead to further damage.

Unpleasant Odors

The smell of sewage is an unmistakable smell, so when the stench reaches your nose, it is likely that your pipes are due for sewer repair services. This smell is often caused by the build-up of methane gas and can be dangerous if inhaled for an extended period of time.

Gurgling Noises

If you hear unusual gurgling noises in your drains, there is likely a problem with your sewer line. This noise is often caused by the build-up of waste that can’t flow properly and can be a sign of a severe issue. If unusual noises coming from your drains and pipes are keeping you up at night or disrupting your daily routine, we can replace sewer line.

Lush Patches of Lawn

Having a thriving lawn is something to celebrate, but not when only a certain patch is lush. This can actually mean that your sewer line has broken or collapsed and you’d need a sewer line replacement.

If you are currently experiencing these issues, Bob Oates Sewer & Rooter can help. Contact us today so we can assess how to address your sewer concerns.
