Sewage Line Backup Services in Chicago
No homeowner likes to imagine the aftermath of a clogged sewer line in their home — but knowing who to call in case of a backup is the first step to getting it repaired and having your back to a clean, hygienic, and functional state as quickly as possible. ABC Plumbing, Sewer, Heating, Cooling, and Electric are the sewer and drain cleaning professionals to call when sewer trouble rears its head in Chicago.
What Causes a Clogged Sewer Line?
The most common cause of a clogged sewer drain line is a buildup of everyday materials and debris that go down the drain when they shouldn’t. Hair, wet wipes, grease, and more can combine with soap scum to create an impenetrable clog that requires professional attention.
Tree roots can grow beyond expectation and pierce your pipes, leaving you with a nonfunctional drain line that can clog more easily. Damage due to aging pipes has a similar effect, and you can even end up with a line backup due to heavy rain causing the overflow to Chicago’s city sewage lines.
Signs You Have a Sewer Line Backup
It can be hard to distinguish sewage line backups from other plumbing problems, but there are some key signs to look out for. The primary indicator is that multiple drains back up simultaneously, even if you’re not using them all at the moment. Toilets, showers, washing machines, and sinks may operate improperly and make strange sounds like gurgling. If you get a whiff of sewage from any of these fixtures, it’s time to call in the professionals.
