Florida Sewage Backup Cleanup & Restoration
A sewage blockage and backup can occur for several reasons, most of which are preventable. The most common cause is a storm drain clogged with leaves or other debris or someone flushing diapers down the toilet. Other reasons may include broken sewer lines, trees growing too close to the sewer lines, grease blocking the pipes and drains, food debris from the kitchen sinks and dishwashers, and fats (including cooking oil) lodged in pipes.
Overall, the primary cause of many blockages is improper disposal. To avoid it, put your garbage and other waste into your household trash can and not into the sewer line. Another common cause for blockages is when grease drips from a pan onto a pipe, making its way into the pipes. It will trap any foods washed down the sink and cause a blockage. To prevent this from happening, make sure you never wash food particles down the kitchen sink. As for the toilet, avoid attempting to flush diapers, pieces of clothing, or other waste that may block sewage pipelines.
Why Is Sewage Backup Dangerous?
Sewage backed up in your home is a potential risk to your health and property. People can be exposed to diseases spread through sewage, such as hepatitis and typhoid. Sewage contamination also results in a stench from stale gases, which can be unbearable or lethal for people inside the house.
Backups with untreated human waste pose a real threat to your health and the environment. In some cases, toilets are not properly maintained, and their flows get blocked or broken. When this happens, it causes the toilet bowl to back up with water and waste, which will overflow onto the floor and into your house. Sometimes, this causes sewage to seep under your home’s foundation as well.
In addition, no matter how much you clean after a backup or broken pipes, the smell of sewage will likely remain in your home for a long time. This is because not only do you need to get rid of all sewage to prevent further contamination of your household, but also you need to sanitize and deodorize everything exposed to or damaged by the backup.
