While floods are probably best known for causing extensive water damage to homes and businesses, they can also cause sewage from sanitary sewer lines to back up into houses through drain pipes. These backups not only cause damage that is difficult and expensive to repair, but also create health hazards.
A few causes of sewer backups:
- Blockage due to Tree Roots
- Blockage of a Sanitary Main Line
- Water in a basement
These are only a couple reasons that a sewer back up could occur. However, a sewer backup can lead to disease, destruction of your valuables, damage to your house or business, and can even result in electrical malfunctions. Prompt cleanup of the affected property can help minimize the inconvenience and prevent mold and further damage.
