What Causes Sewer Backups?

Especially as sewer lines age, sewer backups can become more problematic as the system sags, cracks, and crumbles over time. In Baltimore, 68% of homes were built before 1949, meaning you could have a dangerously old sewer line on your hands if it hasn’t been replaced in recent years. In addition to age, the following are some additional causes of sewer backups that could be the source of your plumbing problems:

  • Clogs: Clogged sewer lines prevent your wastewater from flowing into your local sewer system, causing it to back up into your home instead. These clogs can be caused by many different materials, including toilet paper, hair, grease, food items, and more.
  • Tree root infiltration: Aging sewer lines are much more susceptible to having a tree root infiltrate them, creating large blockages that lead to sewage backup in your Baltimore home.
  • Damaged sewer lines: Even if your sewer line isn’t old, it may still sag, crack, break, or become misaligned. When this happens, clogs can easily occur, making sewage backup into your home more likely.
  • Heavy rains & floods: Here in Baltimore, we experience more than 3 feet of rainfall per year. City sewage lines can become inundated with water, causing sewage to back up into your home.

If the main source of your sewer backup is caused by the main underground sewer pipe, the city will be responsible for any necessary repairs. However, in all other instances, it’s the homeowner’s responsibility to fix sewer line problems and backups. If you have water and sewer backup coverage through your homeowners’ insurance policy, your provider may cover the cost of repair and replacement of damaged property.

Regardless of the root cause of your sewer backup, Len The Plumber is here to help! Contact us to schedule emergency sewer backup repair services in Baltimore today.

How to Prevent Sewer Line Backups in Baltimore

While it’s important to know who to call when a sewer line backup occurs in your Baltimore home, it’s equally important to know how to avoid it in the first place. The following are just a few tips that homeowners can follow that will help them avoid catastrophic sewage backup in their homes:

  • Proper waste disposal: Ensure paper products, debris, and foreign objects never enter your drains.
  • Replace sewer lines: Sewer lines older than 25 years or made from clay, cast iron, or Orangeburg are highly susceptible to failure. Be sure to schedule sewer line replacement service if you suspect your line may be dangerously old or poorly constructed.
  • Install backwater valves: This backflow prevention device helps stop outbound water from coming back into your home.
  • Plumbing system maintenance: Routine drain cleaning and other plumbing maintenance can help keep clogs at bay and catch minor problems before they escalate into more serious issues.

If you still experience sewer backup after following these preventative measures, Len The Plumber is here to help. Contact us at 800-950-4619 to schedule sewer backup repair services today!
