Sewer system backups have several common causes, including:

  • aging sewer systems giving out;
  • combined stormwater and raw sewage plumbing systems becoming overloaded by rain and flooding back into basements;
  • tree roots in search of moisture cutting into pipes;
  • temperature fluctuations causing pipes to crack and burst.

When the sewer system backs up into your house, it can cause unpleasant odors and messes. Sometimes, a backup happens without warning after a major flood. Other times, there are subtle warning signs like sewage odors; backups in your toilet or sink or tub drains, gurgling sounds from your drain; and water accumulating around the drain on your basement floor.
