Damaging floors, walls, furniture, appliances, electrical systems, and other home possessions, sewage back ups can be a serious problem. Making it even worse are the costs associated with such destruction, which often aren’t covered by average homeowners insurance policies without the addition of a specific rider.
Even with complete financial coverage, a sewage backup is something better to avoid. Not only does it create a stinky, awful mess, but also increases risk of exposing you and your family to harmful bacteria and disease should sewage water make its way into your home.
Topping the list of worst plumbing problems, sewer backup can lead to large leaks or burst pipes resulting in a contaminated situation that can make you and your family sick. The most common reported illness associated with oral exposure to polluted sewer water is gastroenteritis, or more commonly referred to as a stomach bug or stomach flu, with symptoms of vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach cramps.
Organisms, including E.Coli, salmonella, giardia, and cryptosporidium, are commonly found in sewer water, which can become harmful and lead to illness when humans come in direct contact with them. Contact can occur when wiping your face with contaminated hands or gloves, splash back entering the mouth or skin via a cut or scrape, and by hand-to-mouth touching when eating or smoking.
Sewage backups happen for all kinds of reason: blockages caused by foreign objects and tree roots, flooding, structural defects, and sewage line issues. While some backups may be out of your control, taking preventive steps can only help.
