3 Signs You Need Midlothian Sewer Repair

Posted on: March 12, 2016

If there’s one problem you don’t want to deal with, it’s a damaged sewer—and that’s why the team of Master Plumbers at Dial One Johnson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning offers top-rated Midlothian sewer repair.

Signs You Need Midlothian Sewer Repair

One of the unfortunate truths about sewer problems is that it can take a while before you notice them—and then when you do notice them, the problem has often already become very unpleasant. Here are three signs you need sewer repair:

  1. A foul odor coming from the drains: This means the wastewater isn’t draining away, so the nasty smell of stagnant wastewater finds its way out of the sewer system and into your home.
  2. Water pooling in your yard or driveway: This is a sign that the water can’t drain away and is being forced to the surface.
  3. An increase in the amount of vermin around the house: Insects are attracted to the wastewater, and as a result, mice and rats are attracted to the insects to feed off them.

Clearly, all of these scenarios are nasty enough when they occur by themselves. When the three occur at the same time, it’s not just unpleasant; it’s actually unhealthy. If you’re exposed to sewage, you can be exposed to a bunch of harmful bacteria and viruses, including salmonella, e.coli, typhoid and even hepatitis A. Think about it: the notion of sluicing wastewater away from where people live goes back millennia—the ancient Egyptians had sewers, as did the ancient Greeks and Romans. A working sewage system is critical to maintaining public health.
