What Causes Sewer Backups?

Sewer backups can be caused by any number of things, including:

  • Clogs: A clogged sewer line will prevent wastewater from flowing to the local sewer system, causing sewage to back up into your home. These clogs can be caused by anything from toilet paper and hair to foreign objects.
  • Tree root infiltration: Tree roots grow into cracked or vulnerable sewer lines, creating a blockage and causing a sewage backup.
  • Damaged sewer lines: When sewer lines are sagging, cracked, broken, or misaligned, clogs can easily occur. These problems are most likely to happen as sewer lines age.
  • Heavy rains and floods: City sewage lines can be inundated with water when it rains. When these lines simply can’t take in more water, sewage can start backing up in homes.

For sewage backups caused by any problems at the main underground sewer pipe, which typically is located beyond the homeowner’s property boundaries, the City will be responsible for handling the repairs.

In all other cases, however, it’s usually the homeowner’s responsibility to fix sewer line problems and backups. The good news is that homeowners insurance may cover damage caused by a sewer line backup.

No matter what’s causing your sewer backup, we’re ready to help! Call (800) 950-4619(800) 950-4619 now for emergency service!

How to Prevent Sewer Line Backups at Falls Church, VA Homes

No homeowner ever wants to deal with a sewer backup. To minimize the risk of sewer line clogs and backups, follow these prevention tips:

  • Properly dispose of waste: Make sure paper products, debris, and foreign objects don’t enter your drains.
  • Replace your old sewer lines before they fail: Sewer lines that are more than 25 years old or that are clay, cast iron, or Orangeburg are highly susceptible to failing. Replacing these types of sewer lines now, before a sewer break, can save you a lot of money and headaches in the future.
  • Install a backwater valve: This backflow prevention device can stop outbound water from flowing back into a home.
  • Properly maintain your plumbing system: Routine drain cleaning can prevent clogs, and other plumbing maintenance services can catch minor issues before they snowball and lead to a sewer backup.
