Always hire a trained plumbing professional to handle sewer backup issues and repairs.
A sewer backup is very inconvenient to any home or business owner, as it will end up disrupting your routine and is a pretty major plumbing issue to deal with. When this happens, bear in mind that you will be dealing directly with raw sewage. You should always ensure you hire a trained and licensed plumbing professional in this case.
We handle sewer backup issues and repairs for residential and commercial properties in Lakeland, Plant City, Davenport, Winter Haven, and other areas of Florida's Polk County, eastern Hillsborough County, and southeastern Pasco County.
What to Do When You Have a Sewer Backup
No matter how big or small the sewer backup in your property may be, the first thing you should do is place a call to an emergency plumber that is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. When you have a backup, you should never attempt to come into contact with raw sewage, as it carries many different types of harmful bacteria that can cause illnesses or skin irritation.
An emergency plumbing company like True Plumbers can arrive quickly to help fix the issue and stop raw sewage from invading your home or business.
Reasons Your Sewer May Be Backed Up
Sewers can back up for many reasons, so if it happens, do not automatically assume that it was your fault or someone else's fault. Foreign objects being flushed can cause a problem, but we often see other causes of sewer backups such as:
- Broken pipes
- Tree roots growing into the pipes
- Excessive rain
- Blocked pipes
- Defects in structure
- A clog in the city's sewer line
- Gutters that are routed to a sewer line
Ways to Prevent a Sewer from Backing Up
While you can't prevent some of the reasons for sewer backup problems, there are ways to be proactive inside your own home or business. Make sure that you never flush things down the toilet unless they are human waste or toilet paper. Additionally, keep your kitchen sink drains free of cooking grease, coffee grounds, and excess food.
Have someone evaluate your gutters to see where the water is draining to ensure it's kept away from your sewer pipes, as they are not equipped to handle that much water flow. You can also have a plumbing company inspect or clear your sewer lines every few years to keep the pipes flowing freely.
