Many people have felt what its like to be up a figurative creek without a paddle. You can get this feeling from several situations, but one emergency that can leave people wondering what to do next is a backed up sewer line. Let’s imagine, for an instant, that it’s the middle of the week. You and your family are watching television in the evening. You get up to go to the bathroom, and when you get close, you feel wet carpet under your feet. The closer you get, the soggier the mess becomes. When you arrive at the bathroom, you open the door and realize that the toilet is overflowing. The handle was stuck, and so it was continually running.
There are myriad ways that sewer lines can become clogged. Plant root growth, flushed toys, and paper towels are just a few culprits, to name a few. Sadly, a backed up sewer line is a gift that keeps on giving. The water that comes back up into your home can be laden with harmful and foul-smelling bacteria. Not only is this water harmful to you and your family, but it can also damage your home. The longer the soggy mess stands in your home, the more the wood absorbs it. If the problem is not handled correctly, then behind your walls and under your carpet, mold can begin to grow. Not only is mold a health hazard, but if left unchecked, it can weaken the structural integrity of your home.
After a nightmarish sewer situation, you may find yourself wondering what to do. Trying to tackle a mess like this may seem overwhelming without the proper tools and equipment. Just throwing towels on it may not be the best idea. As stated before, between the bacteria and the potential for mold damage, the unseen things can be worse than anything else.
