Tree Roots

There are a few different things that can cause a sewer backup. One of the most common is when tree roots grow into and block the sewer line. This can happen when there are cracks or breaks in the line, allowing roots to enter.

Grease Build Up

Another common cause is a build-up of grease, hair, and other debris in the sewer line. This can happen over time as people use the sink and shower, and it can eventually cause a blockage.


Excess Rainwater

Excess rainwater can also cause a sewer backup. This is because the rainwater can overwhelm the sewage system, causing it to back up into homes and businesses.


Ways to Prevent Sewer Backup

There are a few different ways to prevent a sewer backup. One is to have your sewer line checked regularly for any cracks or breaks. You can also have a professional clean your sewer line every so often to remove any build-up of debris. You can also help prevent backups by being careful about what goes down your drains. Avoid putting grease, hair, and other debris down the drain, and only flush toilet paper. If you are having problems with your sewer line, call a professional to come and take a look.
