When to Consider a Sewer Camera Inspection

Whether you own a home, an office building or a business - sewer camera inspections are a vital component to maintaining a safe, welcoming place for residents, employees, or visitors.

Sewer Camera Inspection: When should I call for one? 

While we should all consider sewer camera inspections on a regular basis to ensure we are maintaining clean, healthy pipes - let's uncover some of the most common and important reasons property owners call for help. 

Recurring Sewer Backup

Yikes! What is that smell? A sewer backup is one of the most common and unpleasant incidents that has homeowners calling for help. Sewage backups happen when wastewater gets pushed back up a sink, toilet, or drain, which releases foul smells and dangerous contaminants into the area where it occurs. If this is a one-time incident, it could have been caused by various things. But if this continues, it is likely due to a blockage or break in your sewer line. 

Multiple Clogged Drains or Toilets 

A sewer camera inspection is needed if multiple sinks, showers, or toilets are clogged in your home. Widespread clogging almost always is the result of a major blockage in the main sewer line. 

Water Damage on Floors or Walls

Sewer lines are hidden beneath the floors and behind the walls.  When a leak occurs, water damage and mold will accumulate in those hard-to-reach areas. As soon as water or mold damage is detected, a sewer camera inspection should be completed to detect exactly where the problem is located. 

If any of these issues are present in your home or building, call a professional today for a sewer camera inspection. For optimal, healthy pipes - scheduling regular inspections will always be the best choice. The next time you require a plumber, be sure they come equipped with a sewer camera to inspect the pipes. Without an inspection, it is unknown if the issue is actually fixed or is likely to return.
