Common causes of a sewage backup

Most sewage backups often occur from a blockage in the sanitary sewer line, where wastewater may enter your home throughout the floor drains and other plumbing lines within the building. Some causes of sewage backups are preventable, while others aren’t evident until the backup occurs. Here are some of the main causes:

  • Solid flushes: A blockage in the waste line between a plumbing fixture and the main septic drain line is often referred to as a “solid flush.” This problem typically occurs when a large or inappropriate object is flushed down the toilet, such as food fat and cotton buds, creating a blockage somewhere in the waste line.  
  • Structural damage: When a waste pipe develops a crack, detaches from an adjacent pipe section, or is crushed because of building settlement - sewage backup can occur. 
  • Root blockage: The main drain line that connects the home to a septic tank or municipal sewer can be susceptible to clogging from tree roots. The roots grow naturally toward a moisture source and typically enter the sewer line through pipe joints.
  • Sewer backup or surge: If a blockage occurs in a city sewage line, wastewater usually overflows at the lowest opening, which can be a sink or toilet in a home’s basement or lower level.

Sewage damage & safety

Rest assured that Professional Carpet Systems & Professional Restoration Systems has the necessary equipment to thoroughly clean, dry, and restore your property. Sewage damage disasters require trained professionals to prevent additional damage and expenses. Safety is a high concern when dealing with a sewage disaster. Here are a few tips to remember:

  • DO stay out of the affected area.
  • DO treat all bodily fluids as if they are contaminated.
  • DO call emergency personnel if the situation is life-threatening.
  • DO NOT attempt cleanup of any kind.
  • DO NOT touch our handle items that might be contaminated.
  • DO NOT stay in the contaminated property if you have respiratory problems, are under the age of 2 or over the age of 60, if you are pregnant, or if you have a weak immune system.

After you've done all this, you should contact your insurance agent or adjuster to inform them of the loss and let them know that you have already hired a professional sewage damage and drying firm to take care of the sewage damage situation.  We will work directly with your insurance company and take care of all of the paperwork necessary to move your claim along swiftly.

Our sewage removal process

Our number one goal is to have you absolutely thrilled with the work that our company performs.

  1. A clean-cut and uniformed restoration specialist will come to your door. They will walk you through the damaged areas and let you know our first stage of attack.
  2. Our specialist will then begin the sewage remediation process to remove sewage waste. Extraction is a crucial part of the pre-drying process, the more sewage water that is removed in the beginning, the faster we will be able to get your home dry and safe again.
  3. We will proceed with restoring your home to pre-loss condition, including detecting any structural damage and eliminating mold or other pathogens that can hide in unseen places.
  4. We provide a packet of information to review with you so you have a full understanding of the process. There will also be various forms that we will need to complete together.
  5. We will be documenting your home and the damage caused by the sewage loss throughout the process. It is very important to thoroughly document your entire home, so you can expect our Restoration Specialist to ask to see areas of your home that were not directly affected by the sewage damage. We do this to ensure that secondary damage has not occurred. This is completely for your protection. We want to make sure that when we leave your home is totally safe.
  6. When our work is complete you will get a full copy of the report for your records.
  7. Last, but not least, you can expect to be thoroughly satisfied at the conclusion of your loss. If at any time during the process, you feel that you are not completely satisfied or you have some questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
