The most common reason for sewer backup is an obstruction in between the pipes of your home and the city sewer pipes. This problem can happen over time from build of thing such as hair, grease and other natural things to travel through the pipes. Yet other obstructions are more blatant such as a child flushing something down the toilet that shouldn’t be. Your pipes can be more susceptible to pipe blockage if the water pressure of your home is low because there is less force pushing objects from your home to the sewers. This is why it is important to make sure your toilets and faucets are being used appropriately.

Not only is sewage backup disgusting to smell and look at, but it also carries a lot of harmful bacteria and disease.

If you are dealing with a backed up pipe be sure to call a water restoration team immediately to return the contaminated wasteland back into your comfortable home.
