The heavy rains spring brings is damaging enough if it leads to in-home flooding, but add a sewage backup and the problem goes from bad to worse. Instead of water in your home, you now have waste water, which equates to a smelly, dirty mess, with the added disadvantage of potential health hazards for you and your family.
When weather is dry, a sewer backup is most often caused by clogged pipes. That clogging is typically due to a blockage, such as flushed-toilet items that don’t easily break down, tree roots encroaching on pipes, fats, oils, or grease discarded down drains, or settling soil that collapses pipes making areas impassable.
When the weather is wet, a sewer overflow can occur when large amounts of rainfall and water from melting snow become too much for the property drainage system to handle. If water levels rise above your drainage system, you could end up with bacteria-ridden waste water back flowing into your home
