Occationally during sewer cleaning, air pressure builds up in the sewer line causing water to splash out of toilets, sinks, and drains. Please take the following precautions to prevent water damage in your home:
- Close lids and cover toilet bowls when not in use.
- Insert drain plugs in all sinks and bathtubs when not in use.
- Remove all floor mats in bathrooms.
- Place an old towel around the base of toilets.
- Cover all basement floor drains.
Sewer cleaning on rare occasions may leave an odor in your home. If so, please run some water down all drains, sinks and bathtub drains, flush toilets, pour a pail of water down each basement floor drain and open your windows. After a short time the odor should disappear.
