Help! My Basement Just Flooded

Call Sewer Cleaning Company to make sure your sewers are working properly so you don't come home to this one day.

Signs of Sewer Backups 

• Several drains are clogged - drain very slowly or are backing up 
• Your drains smell bad, especially when you run water in other rooms 
• Water gurgles in the sink when you flush the toilet or use the shower 
• Your yard is soggy or smelly 

Possible Causes for Sewer Backups 

• Clogged Sewer Lines 

• Tree Roots Growing in Sewer Lines 

• Cracked or Collapsed Sewer Lines 

• Gutters, Downspouts, and Sump Pumps routed into sewers 

• Problems with City Sewers 


Tips for Preventing a Sewer Backup 

• Avoid putting so-called “flushable” bathroom wipes in the toilet 

• Never flush disposable diapers or hygiene products down the toilet 

• Use a hair catcher in showers and bathtubs 

• Never hook up gutters or downspouts to sanitary sewers 

• Install floating backflow drain plugs in open floor drains 

• Have your sewer line cleared every 3–5 years to remove clogs and build-up 

• Have your sewer line inspected every 6–10 years to check for cracks and wear 

• Never pour fats, oils, celery or coffee grounds down the drain, even if you have a garbage disposal 

• If you have had several sewage backups before, you may want to install either a backwater valve or an overhead sewer system
