Natural disasters, broken pipes, spring floods, or sewage backup are all common causes of flooding in your home or business. However, of all the different scenarios of flooding, a sewage backup is probably the worst. From the nasty smell and water damage to the bacteria and health risks that comes with sewage backup, this problem is quite difficult to tackle and definitely not a do-it-yourself situation. If you have experienced such a disaster and need professional water damage restoration services, ServiceMaster Cleaning and Restoration Services in Cleveland, Ohio is here to help.
Most often a sewage backup is caused by a buildup in toilets and drains with items that should not have been flushed or put down the drain in the first place. It is imperative to be careful of items such as feminine hygiene products, sanitary wipes, paper towels, plastic hygiene products such as Band-Aids, and grease or oil. To prevent sewage backup, it’s important to never put these items down kitchen sinks, drains, or flush them down the toilet. Plastic hygiene items such as Band-Aids, in particular, are not biodegradable and will stick to your pipes, causing a sewage backup. Additionally, pads and tampons clog and backup sewage systems as do paper towels and sanitary wipes. If you’re curious about what items in your home are flushable, products such as wipes typically advertise on the box whether they are flush-friendly or not.
