Sewage and Water Damage

4/3/2020 (Permalink)

Many people prepare for basement flooding, leaky windows, fire and more, but what about sewage back up? Sewage back up can cause much more damage to your property than meets the eye.  Flooding is one on the most common causes of sewage back up, however there are numerous other causes as well. Broken or collapsed sewer lines, overgrowth of tree roots into lines, and clogs can cause sewage back up as well. It is important to refrain from flushing foreign objects and pouring grease or oil down your drain.
