The words plumbing emergency aren’t ones any homeowner wants to hear. They usually conjure up images of water flooding throughout a house, causing furniture to float on currents like flotsam after a ship has accidentally run aground. Most emergency plumbing issues you’ll run into won’t be so drastic, but they’ll still feel urgent.
You have a great ally for your emergency plumbing needs: Reliance Plumbing Sewer & Drainage. We have 24/7 emergency service available. We know how serious major plumbing mishaps can be and how much our customers need us as soon as possible!
We’re going to take a look at the most common causes that will cause you to call us for fast plumbing repair, any time of the day or night.
Having clogged and slow drains in your home is an annoyance. Sometimes you can clear out a clogged drain with a simple plunger or drain auger. With more serious stoppages you’ll need the help of professional plumbers.
A clogged sewer line is a different matter. The sewer line transports all the wastewater from your home out to the municipal sewer system. If this underground pipe develops blockage, it will eventually cause all the drains and toilets in your home to back up and even spill sewage into your living space. Thankfully, professional plumbers like us can handle the sewer cleaning or sewer line repair in Des Plaines necessary to fix the problem.
Below we’ll look at the most common causes of sewer line blockages. This will help you know what to look for as well as some ways to prevent problems.
Nobody wants their home to smell like sewage or anything else rotten. It’s frustrating when you keep your home clean and tidy, but then you begin to notice unpleasant odors wafting from your drains.
