Sewage backups are a serious problem that can happen to any home, and they can cause extensive damage to the property and pose a serious health risk to its people. Sewage backups can occur for many reasons, including clogged pipes, heavy rains, basement flooding, etc. Regardless of the reason, immediate action in cleaning up these situations will prevent further damage.

Common Sewer Backup Problems - A Potentially Expensive Trouble

Many common sewage problems can occur in both residential and commercial settings. Some of the most common include:

Grease buildup in pipes, which can lead to clogs and backups

Grease buildup in pipes can be a significant problem, leading to clogs and backups. When grease accumulates in the drain line, it can restrict water flow and cause blockages. As the grease cools, it can also trap food particles and other debris, leading to clogs. You can try cleaning the pipes regularly and removing any grease buildup to prevent these problems. Lastly, do not throw away cooking oil and other solid waste into the kitchen drain.

If you're having trouble with the kitchen drain, you can try using a plunger or running hot water through the pipes to melt any accumulated grease. If you have a severe problem with grease buildup, you may need to call a plumber to have the pipes cleaned professionally.

Tree roots growing into and blocking pipes

Tree roots growing into and blocking pipes is a problem that can occur when trees are planted too close to the main sewer line. The tree's roots can grow into the sewer line and block it, causing sewage to back up into your home or business. This can be a very costly problem to fix, so it is essential to make sure that trees are not planted too close to sewer lines.

If you think that tree roots are in your sewer line, it is important to contact a professional to have the problem assessed and fixed as soon as possible. A professional plumber can do a sewer line cleaning for you and inspect the entire plumbing system to ensure there aren't any other problems. 

Sewer line cracks or broken sanitary sewers

Sanitary sewers that are cracked or broken can cause sewage to leak into your home or business, leading to potentially extensive damage to the property and posing a serious health risk to property owners. If you think that your sewer line may be cracked or broken, it is important to contact a professional to have the problem restore the problem right away.

Collapsed sewer lines

One of the most annoying things in your home is a collapsed sewer line. This can be a big problem because it is foul and smelly and can cause serious damage to your home due to the contaminated water that may be backing up.

Backed up septic

Backed-up septics can cause many problems, including overflowing sewage, contamination of drinking water, and damage to the property's foundation. It's crucial to address these problems as soon as there's a suspicion of the problem.

What to Do If You Have a Sewage Backup

If you have a sewage backup in your home or business, it is important to immediately clean up the mess and prevent any further damage. Here are a few tips on what to do if you have problems with your sewer lines:

  • Do not attempt to clean up sewer backups yourself. Wastewater can contain harmful bacteria and other pathogens that can cause serious illness. It is essential to leave the cleanup to professionals with the experience and training to safely and effectively clean up the mess.
  • Do not use your regular vacuum cleaner to try to clean up the mess. This can damage your vacuum cleaner and spread the sewage to other home or business areas.
  • Do not flush toilets or use any plumbing fixtures in your home or business until the sewage has been cleaned up. This can cause the sewage to spread and make the problem worse.
  • Do not turn on any fans or air conditioners in your home or business. This can spread the sewage and make the problem worse.
