All property damage caused by a natural disaster is unfortunate. However, out of all the possible ways a residential or commercial property can become damaged, sewage damage is probably the most unfortunate — and disgusting — way. When sewage water overflows into a home,  it becomes a serious issue that should not be taken lightly. In addition to being messy and smelly, raw sewage contains harmful bacteria, viruses, and germs — all of which create a hazardous environment. Exposure to raw sewage without the proper equipment and clothing could lead to serious illnesses. When sewage backups occur, it is vital that the mess is cleaned up as soon as possible to avoid further damage to the property and eliminate the health risk.

When sewage is backed up, many people will try to cleanup the mess and damages themselves. With the risk of being exposed to harmful viruses and bacteria and causing further damages to the property, sewage cleanup should be handled by trained professionals.

What Causes Sewer Backups in South Carolina

There are many ways a sewage backup can happen. Unfortunately, they often come completely unexpected and can cause a huge mess and inconvenience. What’s worse is that after a backup occurs, unless you are able to find the cause it is challenging to prevent another sewer  backup from happening again. Be on the lookout for these common causes of sewer overflows and backups.

Blocked or Clogged Sewer Lines

Clogged sewer pipes and drains are often a common cause of residential and commercial sewage backups. Sewer line clogs often happen due to a buildup of solid material in the sewer pipe that connects to the municipal sewer line. Flushing improper items, such as fats and oils, large amounts of bath tissue, food waste, and other materials can eventually lead to a blocked or clogged sewer line, resulting in a sewage backup.

Flooding or Heavy Rainfall

Sewage systems have a limited capacity for the amount of water they can contain. When flooding or heavy rainfall takes place, it can be hard for a sewer system to keep up with the amounts of water. If rainfall or flooding continues for an extended period of time it can cause a system to exceed its capacity, pushing excess water down sewer lines. If you are at the unlucky end of a sewer line, flooding and heavy rainfall could cause a sewage backup.

Broken or Collapsed Sewage Lines

When sewer lines are broken, damaged or collapsed they can end up causing a lot of issues, especially sewage backups. While old age is the most common reason why sewage lines collapse or break, insufficient ground support under pipes, ground movement, and faulty materials all can lead to big problems that often require costly repair or replacement.

Tree Roots

Even if there are not any trees near a sewer line, roots for nearby trees can extend and penetrate the pipes. Once roots are able to penetrate a sewer line, the roots often will grow within the pipes and can create a clog. Once this happens, the only solution to fix the problem is to cut away the roots and then repair or replace the sewer pipe. In addition, tree roots can cause pipes to crack, bend, or collapse.
