Household sewer backup can occur in any area of the line, from the drain to the pipes located deep inside the sewer line. Taking preventative measures is always a wise course of action if you want to avoid the need for serious repairs. However, it helps to understand how sewage backups occur. Below are some common reasons for such problems.

Tree Roots

Even though most sewer lines are manufactured from ABS hard plastic or PVC, the coupling joints sometimes weaken over time. This allows the roots of trees to make their way into the line in a quest for water. Once waste is transported through the pipes, blockage occurs around the invading root. For this reason, you should never plant anything with deep roots near underground lines.

Grease

It is never a good idea to pour hot animal fat down the drain. This is because as the grease cools it adheres to the inside of the pipe walls. Once this has occurred, new particles traveling through the drain become attached to the grease, leading to a major blockage.

Overuse of Bathroom Tissue

You can easily cause a drain clog by using too much toilet tissue at one time. The point where the toilet bowl bends around the flange area is particularly susceptible to clogs, and this is the area in which bathroom tissue particles have a tendency to build up, especially in older systems.

Foreign Objects

It is easy to accidentally flush small foreign objects, such as hairpins or toy cars, down a commode. When such objects meet a bend in the line, waste particles will coagulate around them, which can result in a serious sewer drain clog. If you have small children, always use toilet lid locks and keep bathroom doors shut if adult supervision is not available at all times.

Unfortunately, sewage backup can occur despite your best efforts to avoid such problems. If this happens, you should immediately call a professional contractor who can handle sewage removal and cleanup. Never try to handle a sewer backup on your own, as this could lead to costly mistakes and added expense. Instead, place such tasks in the hands of qualified experts who can quickly and efficiently solve the problem.
