What Causes Sewage Backups in North Carolina?

Sewage backup can be caused by a variety of factors. What’s worse, sometimes sewage backups are huge and often completely unexpected. The truth is, sewage backups can happen to anyone. And, unless you are able to properly identify the cause of a backup, it is difficult to fix the problem and prevent it from happening again. Let take a look at some of the most common causes of a sewage backup or overflow.

Clogged Sewer Line

One of the most common causes of commercial and residential sewage backups is clogged sewer pipes. Clogs typically occur due to a buildup of solid material in the sewer pipe that runs from the property out to the municipal sewer line. Fats and oils, food waste, toilet paper, and other materials improperly flushed down the drain can all lead to sewer backups. Most sewer clogs can be prevented with regular maintenance and proper use of the drains.

Tree Root Infiltration

Tree roots often cause issues for sewer lines. As trees grow, their roots can penetrate a sewer line. Once the roots are able to penetrate the pipes, the roots will often grow within the pipes often creating a massive blockage. Once this happens, the only solution to fix the problem is to cut away the roots and then repair or replace the sewer pipe.

Damaged or Collapsed Sewage Line

When sewer lines are damaged, broken, or collapsed they can end up causing a lot of issues for homeowners. Whether it’s due to old age, faulty material, earth movement, or insufficient ground support under the pipes, all of these issues will likely lead to big problems for the sewer line. When sewer pipes are damaged or collapsed, they need to be replaced or repaired.

Heavy Rainfall of Flooding

Because sewage systems only have a limited capacity, flooding or heavy rainfall — especially for a long period of time — can lead to major problems. If rainfall or flooding causes a sewer line to exceed its capacity, the excess water may eventually find its way to your sewer line. As unfortunate and unlucky as this is, it is a serious issue that often leads to a sewage backup.
