Homeowners deal with all types of random smells inside their homes, but the worst is a sewer smell! A professional plumber can use a sewer jetter to clean sewer lines and perform other sewer plumbing needs. Estes Services offers plumbing services to residents in and around Atlanta, Georgia.
Sewage Smells and Diseases
If sewage is backing up into your home or on your property, that may bring three types of contaminants that cause diseases:
- Bacteria can cause salmonellosis, diarrhea, trachoma, shigellosis, and melioidosis
- Viruses such as gastroenteritis and hepatitis A can be found in sewage
- Parasites that are found in sewage can cause dwarf tapeworm infection, threadworm infection, hookworm infection, strongyloidiasis, and giardiasis
Sewer Cleaning Service
The importance of sewer lines to every home is the removal of waste and water to prevent unsanitary and hazardous backups into homes. These pipes can become blocked and may even burst. With a proper sewer cleaning service, a plumber can check for any tree roots that may have punctured or bent a sewer line. Clogs may form in sewer plumbing lines from hygiene items, grease, wet wipes and other items that are flushed and build up over time. During a sewer cleaning service, a sewer jetter uses high-pressure water to clear obstructions and clean sewer lines.
Cleaning sewer lines with a sewer jetter isn’t the only service a plumber can perform to help smells in your home. Typical plumbing services include:
- Service on residential and commercial water heaters
- Leak repairs on indoor plumbing and sewer plumbing
- Installing and repairing plumbing fixtures, such as toilets, bathtubs, showers, kitchen sinks, bathroom sinks, bidets and terminal valves
- Installation and inspection of home water filtration systems
- Perform whole house plumbing inspections annually
- Indoor drain cleaning
