Heavy Rain Can Cause Sewer Backups!
Did you know Heavy Rains can cause Sewer Backups in your Home or Business?
Storms bring Heavy Rains and Heavy Rains can bring Floods. Floods are known for causing extensive Water Damage to Homes and Businesses. Even if the Flooding Area is away from your Property it can possibly cause a Sewage Backup inside your Home or Place of Business.
When the Public Drain System becomes over burdened with water and exceeds it's boundaries the Combined Sewer System becomes Overwhelmed and starts to stop the flow of water which then causes Water and Sewage to Reverse it's Flow of Direction. When this happens the Sewage and Water starts to Backup in Toilets, Sinks, Showers, Bathtubs and Floor Drains. That Sewage and Water will spread beyond it's limits inside Homes and Businesses.
If this Happens to you during a Heavy Rain Storm it is best to call a Professional Water Restoration Company, because if not Cleaned and Mitigated Properly that Sewage Backup can create a Health Hazard in your Home or Place of Business.
