Sewage Backup Prevention Tips Offered to Mid-Atlantic Residents
Date:11/12/2013

Mount Laurel, New Jersey (PRWEB) November 12, 2013

In a case study published in November of 2013 by Alabaster Reporter’s Neal Wagner entitled, “Alabaster releases tips to prevent sewer system damage,” it is revealed that many residents are experiencing irreparable sewage damage that could have been avoided by following a few simple rules. Sewer water causes thousands of dollars of property damage as well as severe illness and even death.

SI Restoration, a leading expert with over twenty years of experience in helping their community with sewage backup cases, urges Mid-Atlantic residents to take heed of Alabaster’s advice. While events like flooding, burst mains and pipes, and toilet seepage are hard to predict, sewage backup can be easily avoided if residents take certain precautions with their everyday habits.

Adding on to their recent publication, which covers the main causes of sewage damage, SI Restoration’s Sewage Backup Prevention Tips are proven to save home and business owners thousands of dollars in mitigation and repair costs while keeping everyone healthy. Unlike items affected by typical water damage, raw sewage destroys any and everything it touches.

The most common causes of sewage backup may seem the least likely. Cooking oils, fats, and grease poured into drains can actually cause catastrophic backups in sewage lines and mains. These fatty substances solidify over time, making it impossible for sewage to drain to local plants. Residents are urged to allow these fatty materials to solidify in washable cups or dishes before being disposed of in the garbage.

Littering is also a very common reason for sewage main backups. Many citizens of the Mid-Atlantic Region throw garbage into local storm drains. Drains can also backup if litter haphazardly tossed on the streets makes its way underground. While littering can also affect drinking water supplies and local lakes and streams, it is arguably most detrimental to the sewage system.

Finally, common cleaners and chemicals should never be poured down the drain. According to Alabaster Reporter, chemicals poured into the sewage system can cause violent reactions. These reactions include release of toxic gases and corrosion of pipes and mains. Mr. Wagner also reports that chemicals can make their way through sewage treatment plant filters and into local streams, lakes, and drinking water.

While sewage damage services may seem to exceed a family’s or a business’ budget, proper mitigation and treatment must be completed to ensure the safety of those exposed to the dangerous pathogens contained in raw sewage. Even though this type of damage requires prompt response, property owners should investigate residential and commercial water damage specialists before allowing contractors to complete remediation as the health and safety of everyone involved depends on it.
