Spring Growth And Sewage Backups
Spring is famous for growth. The once bare trees grow leaves, flowers sprout from the ground and bloom, shrubs come back to life and need a trimming. It’s truly a beautiful time of year that most of us enjoy (maybe not those that suffer from allergies). However, it’s also the time of year when the roots from these plants (mostly trees) grow into our pipes. This is often the cause of sewage backup in our homes. Toilets, tubs, and utility sinks are common exit points. Here are some other things that can cause this to happen:
When sewers and/or pumps are too small, they can cause a toilet backup or the backup or a tub or utility sink. More causes include: broken, cracked, blocked pipes, and faulty equipment. Severe weather can also cause sewage backup when sewage systems take on too much water too fast. Another natural cause is shifting soil that causes wear and tear to a pip causing it to crack or collapse. Human error is also a culprit. Improper installation of pipes can cause backups, too.
If you do encounter a sewage backup, you will need to contact a water damage restoration company immediately. Stay away from the water as it likely carries bacteria, parasites, and fungi that can be harmful to your health. A professional water damage cleanup and restoration team will suit up and extract the harmful waters, clean and dry the area for you. Calling an expert water damage restoration team will ensure the hazard is taken care of properly.
