Sewer back-ups happen when the main sewer line gets clogged, just like drain pipes can clog. Routine maintenance of your sewer system can help prevent clogging, but home/business owners can also help by not flushing items such as napkins, diapers or other miscellaneous waste down toilets and being careful with what is put down a garbage disposal. Tree roots can also be the culprit in clogging sewer lines – even from a tree in a neighbor’s yard!
Broken or collapsed sewer lines can also be the cause of your sewage back-up. Most importantly, do not try to unclog your sewer with harmful chemicals, which may actually do more harm than good!
