What Causes Sewage Backups?
There are a variety of reasons why your sewage can back up into your sinks, tubs, and floors. No matter the reason for the backup, our expert team has the solution.
Blockages are often caused by:
- Soil settlement
- Misaligned joints
- Root infiltration
- Pipe collapses
- Grease buildup
- Items flushed down a drain
The most common causes of sewage backups include clogged pipes, tree root intrusion, broken or collapsed sewer lines, and sewer main blockages. Clogged pipes are the most common cause of sewage backups, and they can be caused by the buildup of soap, grease, and other debris. Tree roots can enter into sewer lines and cause blockages, which can lead to a sewage backup. Broken or collapsed sewer lines can also result in a blockage and cause sewage to back up in your home. Lastly, a sewer main blockage can occur when the main sewer line is blocked by debris, such as leaves, dirt, or even concrete.
Remember, the water may look clear, but germs are invisible. Make sure the job is done right, as well as cleaned and disinfected appropriately, with the experts from ServiceMaster Restore.
Can you get sick from breathing in sewage?
Yes, it is possible to get sick from breathing in sewage. Sewage can contain bacteria and viruses that can cause a variety of illnesses ranging from mild to serious. Inhalation of sewage can cause a variety of respiratory illnesses including bronchitis, pneumonia and sinus infections. In extreme cases, it can even lead to death.
