There are a number of causes that can lead to sewage backup. While many people think of clogs being the cause for sewage backup, that isn’t always the case. Sewage & septic backups are caused when the systems clog or overflow causing raw sewage to run from the sanitary sewer lines back into your home or business through the drain pipes. These issues can be caused by:
Simple Clogs: Flushing grease, fat, foreign objects, paper that isn’t sewage & septic safe or large quantities of organic material down your garbage disposal can lead to a clog & sewage or septic backup.
Broken Sewer/Septic Lines: If there is a break in the sewage or septic line, or if they have collapsed it can cause sewage to backing up into your home.
Tree Roots: When tree roots grow through your sewage or septic lines, it can create a clog in your line that leads to raw sewage backing up into your home.
Flooding: Major storms and floods can lead to an excess of water flooding back up into your sewage and drain lines causing sewage to back up.
Structure Defects: If your sewage system or septic system has defects when they are built, this can cause cracks and collapses over time.
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. Sewage backup can happen to anyone and can be caused by any number of simple things.
