How to Deal With a Blocked Sewer Line

A blocked sewer line is one of the worst nightmares of many homeowners. It can breed costly issues, from backups to potential structural damage. Unfortunately, it occurs when you least expect it and may prompt an untimely sewer line replacement.

When your sewer line gets severely clogged, it’s essential to take proactive steps to avoid further damage to your home. C. Lee Services is on standby for emergency sewer line repair in Cuyahoga Falls, CA. Before anything else, follow these tips:

Turn Off the Water Supply

Shutting off the water supply is the most important step when dealing with a blocked sewer installation. It will prevent further water from going down the clogged drain and worsen the backup. To turn off the water, find the main water valve, which usually comes with a large handle, lever, or wheel. In most cases, it is installed near the water meter or near a corner of your home outside. Be sure it’s entirely closed off.

Contact a Professional

Next, call for sewer repair services. Most sewer line blockages are caused by tree roots, fractured pipes, and other problems that DIY fixes can’t solve. Furthermore, tackling the problem alone will only put your safety at risk. Having a professional from C. Lee Services assess your plumbing system will help ensure the issue is addressed and won’t recur again. We will also provide tips and advice on how to prevent this problem in the future.

Clean the Backed-up Wastewater

If a backup occurs, wear protective gear and clean the mess as soon as possible. You can also leave this job to your plumber if the backup is severe. When possible, turn off the electricity supply to the affected room, especially if the flood is getting close to electrical outlets.

A blocked sewer line is a serious problem that requires immediate attention. Seeking sewer pipe line repair or replacement is necessary to keep your home safe and structurally sound. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
