Surviving a Sewage Back Up

If you experience a sewage back up, the problem is more than just an inconvenience. It's disgusting and a health hazard. Sewage contains bacteria, viruses and other germs that can cause disease and illnesses and make a contaminated house uninhabitable. 

A sewage back up can result from a clog, normally in the main sewer line. Tree roots that have grown into your sewer lines causing holes and blockages can also cause a back up. Collapsed sewer lines, especially in homes and buildings built with cast iron pipes. Finally, heavy rain and flooding can cause sewage from sanitary lines to back up into your property.
