The Hidden Culprit – Sewer Backups and Clogged Drains Let’s begin with an alarming fact: Sewer backups and clogged drains are among the most common plumbing issues homeowners face. Whether it’s a sudden basement flood or a sink that refuses to drain properly, these issues can disrupt your daily life faster than you can say “plunger.”

Did you know? According to a recent study by  Forbes Home, sewer backups and clogs account for a significant portion of plumbing-related incidents in households across the country.

The Problem with Neglecting your sewer system and drains can lead to more significant problems down the line. As debris accumulates, tree roots infiltrate sewer lines, and gunk builds up in your drains, it creates the perfect breeding ground for unpleasant odors, mold, and even pests. Ignoring these issues now might mean dealing with a full-blown plumbing catastrophe later.   

 Neglecting your plumbing can result in costly repairs and health hazards. Don’t wait until it’s too late!  

 The Gunk That Lurks Below Ever wondered what lurks beneath the surface of your sewer lines and drains? We’re talking about debris, tree roots, grease, soap scum, hair, food particles, and more! Over time, these substances can transform your once-efficient plumbing into a sluggish, backup-prone mess.

Expert tip: Regular drain cleaning can be your plumbing’s best friend, ensuring water flows smoothly and preventing costly blockages.

Sewage Backup in St. Louis

Sewage backups occur when sewage, dirty water, or a combination of the two rise from a toilet, sink, or drain. Usually, this results from blockage of the sewer pipe, preventing waste or dirty water from flowing unobstructed. The result? A mess that The Flood Team is trained, certified, and thoroughly equipped to address. As it quickly spreads, sewage can contaminate and destroy flooring, walls, and other household and personal items. Not only does it create a strong odor, but the presence of bacteria, viruses, mold, and parasites can lead to health hazards too. Even a few hours of standing sewage can be dangerous to people and pets. The Flood Team will work to rapidly eliminate exposure to potentially harmful pathogens and minimize damage with our fast response. Call us so we can get started right away. 

 Our team is ready to step into cleanup and restoration action, which a water mitigation specialist should always handle.
