Sewage backup can occur any time, during dry or wet weather and its causes are:

- Tree roots tend to grow and damaged the pipes causing them to crack and break and disturb the flow of waste water and raw waste.
- Heavy rainfall and storm can cause flooding and sewer backup in basement through drain located there. After heavy rain, main city sewer lines can overburden connected sewer lines.
- Many people especially children use toilets as garbage bin to dispose of personal hygiene things and other objects down the toilets causing blockage.
- Grease, food particles, soap suds, hair and debris are the reasons of blockage in drain pipes of kitchen.
To avoid sewage backup, use toilets and sinks carefully by disposing of paper products properly and train children to avoid dropping foreign objects in flush. Do not pour greasy liquids down the drain.
Maintain and cut the tree roots occasionally to prevent their growth around pipe lines.
Maintain the proper functioning of your sump pump and keep checking it occasionally to avoid issues.
