Clogged Sewer Lines – Just like your pipes, sewer lines can become clogged which causes sewage backups in your home or business that can cause severe damage and unbearable smells.
Flooding – After a heavy rain, sewer lines can become overwhelmed with water, which can result in sewer water backing up into your property. We have seen this happen throughout Southeastern Michigan.
Broken or Collapsed Sewer Lines – If your Detroit area home is older, your sewer backup could be caused by old pipes wearing down. This can cause cracks, leaks, or a collapse.
Blockages Caused by Tree Roots – While less common, your home’s exterior piping might be set too close to a tree or shrub. If so, the roots may grow towards the pipes and eventually break through small cracks in the sewer line, causing extensive damage.
