One of the worst things you can experience as a homeowner is a sewer backup. A sewer backup occurs when a blockage prevents wastewater from flowing through the sewer line that connects your home to the municipal sanitary sewers. The obstruction will cause your sewer lines and drain pipes to fill up until it eventually overflows.
Like water damage, sewage backups can cause cosmetic and structural damage to your home or business. Sewage is likely to contain mold, parasites, viruses, and bacteria that pose a significant health risk to human and pets as well.
