What to do after a water backup occurs in your home

If you compare the frustrations of a flooded basement with those of a backed-up sewer, the sewer would probably win—by a nose!

Backups can occur for various reasons: pipe blockages, damaged sewer lines (especially in old homes), tree roots breaking into pipes…the list goes on.

Dealing with a backed-up sewer is not a pleasant task, given the stench and the matter that is potentially hazardous to your health. Sewage is comprised of both organic and inorganic matter, a mixture of water, human waste, mineral salts and garbage that can leak into the home when there is a problem with the underground plumbing designated to carry wastewater away.
