4 Reasons You Could Have Sewage Damage To Your Commercial Property In New Castle, DE

There are several causes for sewer blockages which can lead to sewage water backup in your building, requiring immediate commercial sewage removal. While some are easy to prevent, others are hidden and hard to detect before you realize you may need commercial sewage removal. 

Structural Defects Can Cause Sewage Damage To A Commercial Property

Different structural defects can develop in a sewage system over time. Misaligned pipes, pipe collapses and cracks or holes in the line can lead to sewage overflow, requiring commercial sewage removal and reconstruction of sewer lines. 

City Sewer Backup Or Surge Can Cause Sewage Damage To A Commercial Property

If the backup occurs in a city sewage line, the wastewater will normally overflow out of the lowest possible opening. In some buildings, especially those with basements, the overflowing sewage wastewater may exit through the building’s lower drains and toilets.

Solid Flushes Can Cause Sewage Damage To A Commercial Property

The most common cause for commercial sewage removal is when sewage backs up from a blockage in the pipeline between the city main and your building. This is commonly caused by solid objects in the sewage system that does not naturally decompose.

Root Infiltration Can Cause Sewage Damage To A Commercial Property

Tree roots often cause sewage backups by entering the water pipeline at joints and spreading. As tree roots grow, they will often crack and break the sewage water pipes, creating additional structural defects.

Sewage Cleanup and Restoration

Water from sewer system backups should be considered very dangerous. The water is grossly unsanitary and may contain bacteria and viruses that could cause serious illness. Special training and equipment is necessary to safely clean this type of contamination.
