What Causes Sewage Backup?

A sewage backup is when wastewater doesn’t drain and returns to your home or business because of an obstruction or other issue. Sewage backups are often caused by:

  • Collapsed pipes: Your plumbing system is strong, but it doesn’t last forever. You may have galvanized steel or cast-iron pipes that deteriorate faster than today’s PVC materials if you have an older home.
  • Tree roots: When tree roots invade your pipes, it can create leaks or a blockage that causes sewage to come back up your drains or leak into your yard. Yearly sewer line inspections can help determine the state of your plumbing system for preventative maintenance.
  • Clogs: When you notice slow drains or clogs, you must solve these issues as soon as possible to stop sewage backups. Ignoring any plumbing problems can cause a blockage and let bacteria enter your home.

A sewage backup is messy. Don’t try DIY solutions to remove sewage and limit water damage. Any leftover bacteria or water can continue to deteriorate your home and put you at risk for bacterial illnesses. 

Preventing backups is the only way to avoid the need for an emergency sewage cleanup in Los Angeles. Here are a few tips to stop backups in your home or business:

  • Get yearly sewer line inspections
  • Avoid sending fat, oil, and food down your drains
  • Replace pipes before they collapse
  • Manage plumbing problems as they appear

Regular inspections allow you to notice pipes that need to be replaced before they collapse. It’s also important to avoid sending fat, oil, large chunks of food, or other unnecessary material down your drain, even if you have a garbage disposal.

How to Protect Yourself During a Sewage Backup

If sewage has begun to contaminate your home, it is important to protect yourself from the bacteria that can cause illness. If you can, turn the main water supply off and turn off electrical power to the area. Avoid walking through sewer water without protection, such as a facemask, gloves, and rubber boots. Ventilate the area by opening windows and notify your insurance company and sewer department.
