There’s no better time to get scared than during Halloween. This spooky season is complete with ghosts, goblins, ghouls, and other haunted happenings in your neighborhood. But perhaps one of the scariest things of all can come at any time of the year.

Sewer breakdowns are frightening any time they happen. While you’re busy preparing for the eerie evening of Halloween, roots are growing in your sewer and your drains are getting slower with each passing night. There are tell-tale signs your sewers might need repaired, so it’s important to look at these problems around your home.

Spooky Smell

If you can smell sewage anywhere in or around your home, then you probably have a sewer problem. It could be as simple as a dried-out drain releasing sewer gas, or it could be as serious as a sewer leak that needs to be repaired.

Noises in the Night

If your drains are slow and make a gurgling sound, it could indicate a problem with sewer blockages due to debris or tree roots. If your system is backed up with wastewater, it could be a more monstrous issue. One way to know is to have a mine line camera inspection done by a licensed plumber. A skilled sewer expert can show you right away where the demons are in your sewer system.
