What Causes Sewage Backups?

Sewage backups in homes can occur due to various factors, often stemming from blockages or failures within the plumbing system. Common causes include clogged sewer lines caused by accumulated debris, grease buildup, or tree roots infiltrating underground pipes. Additionally, structural defects such as collapsed pipes or improper installation can contribute to sewage backups. Heavy rainfall or flooding may also overwhelm sewer systems, causing sewage to back up into homes through drains and toilets. Inadequate maintenance of plumbing fixtures and appliances can exacerbate the risk of backups. Understanding the potential causes of sewage backups is crucial for homeowners to take preventive measures and ensure the proper functioning of their plumbing systems.
