Signs Your Storm and Sanitary Sewer Lines Require Cleaning

You might not be able to detect that your storm and sanitary sewer lines need cleaning. These components of your property's plumbing and drainage system often send you signs to indicate trouble. These include:

Regular Clogging:

Clogging in your drains once in a while is normal. If clogging occurs regularly and in multiple drains, the chances are that there might be an issue with your sanitary sewer line.


Regular backups in your drains after tasks such as flushing your toilet are a clear indicator of the need for a sanitary sewer line clean.

Foul Odours:

If foul odours are coming from the drains on your property, you should schedule a sanitary sewer line cleaning as soon as possible.

Water In The Yard:

If your yard has puddles of water in it, or it feels 'spongy,' the probability of a sanitary sewer or storm line issue is high.

Tips for Cleaning Your Sewer Drain

The following are some tips for cleaning your sewer drain:

  • Firstly, check for backflow of water in the mechanical room drain pipe and the basement area, since these are often the first areas affected by the backup when clogs occur in the main sewage pipe.

  • Stop any water supply coming into your commercial property, especially from places producing large volumes like washers, bathrooms, etc.

  • To prevent the primary sewer backup, avoid flushing items like baby wipes, dental floss, paper towels, and sanitary napkins. All these objects can become trapped in tree roots or sag, causing a blockage in your main sewer line.
