Sewage Inside Your Home
The stench of sewage inside your living space is more than most want to even think about, but it is a potential sign of a sewer line leak on your property. In some cases, the gases that are produced by the sewage can be dangerous, and there is always the possibility of bacteria and parasites in your home, but as long as you vacate the premises and let your plumber know what has happened, you should be able to avoid any health issues. Your plumber will arrive and take charge of the situation, checking the line, making any necessary repairs and arranging for cleanup.
Don’t Waste Time
Even if there aren’t any immediate health concerns, there will be long-term risks with the bacteria and other organisms present, so it is important to take quick action. You may end up needing a replacement of your sewer line if the damage is bad enough or the line itself is older and worn out. Waiting will only delay what needs to be done and increase the risk of problems.
