Sewage systems in our home are something we often take for granted. Although it can appear like a complex maze of pipes and drains to those without an understanding of home plumbing, it is actually a simple, innovative solution with a basic construction.
Sewage treatment systems in your home are designed to take advantage of one basic thing: gravity. A series of vertical and sloped pipes guide waste through your drainage system. Waste and wastewater flows through the pipes and is then directed out of your home. For residential and commercial buildings on a municipal sewage system, your waste is sent to a treatment facility. For rural houses, waste is collected in a septic tank.
Flooding is often caused by heavy rainfall or melting snow; it can result in sewer backups in urban areas. This can cause a foul odour to radiate from your drains. If the situation is not addressed, it can lead to sewage backup into your home. Not only can this cause damage in your home, but it contains harmful bacteria that can make you, your family, and your pets become sick.
Often, people experiencing the signs of sewer backup ignore them until they are too late. To prevent your home from being damaged by sewage backup and flooding, it is crucial that you call a professional as soon as you suspect there is an issue. If you smell a foul odour or notice any kind of sewage backup, call a plumber right away.
