1. Mold spots in your home
Mold growth thrives in humid, moist environments. Do you notice mold spots on the walls, ceilings, or floors? If so, the pipe system is likely leaking in those areas. It’s best to have skilled plumbers address this situation immediately. Mold is not only unsightly, but also poses a serious health threat to everyone living in the home.
2. Slow water drainage
Clogged drains are a common household issue. In most cases, you can resolve this matter with a drain cleaner or a plunger. Are you experiencing this problem on a regular basis? Does it happen simultaneously in the bathroom, kitchen, shower, toilets, and sinks?
If yes, you’re probably experiencing one of the following problems:
- Tree roots obstructing the pipeline
- Cracked, collapsed or broken sewer line
- Bellied, or sagging, sewer pipe
3. Sewer gas odor
Sewer lines are designed to be airtight. Because of this, there shouldn’t be a foul odor coming through the drains. Do you smell a gas-like stench inside and/or outside your home?
If so, the pipeline may be cracked. It’s also one of the signs of a broken sewer line.
