Sewer backup odors can be irritating and harmful, which is why sewer water removal and cleanup are critical. Items that have come in contact with sewage will need to be cleaned and disinfected with bleach, soap, and water. On the other hand, toys, apparel, and other polluted items should be discarded or washed, and disinfected properly. When cleaning your home, it is critical that you wear protective gloves, a mask, and other clothing to ensure that you do not come in direct contact with any pollutants.

There are numerous reasons why your home’s sewer system has backed up. However, here are some of the most common causes we have recorded throughout our years in business:

  • Blockages in municipal sewer lines
  • Tree roots that have grown into sewer lines to create blockages
  • Gutters and downspout blockages after periods of heavy rainfall
  • Homes that do not have sump pumps installed
  • Homeowners who are not mindful of what they flush down the drain, which then causes backups
  • Sump pumps and downspouts that have not been adequately routed from the home

As you can see, there are several reasons why you may be experiencing sewer backup. Therefore, if this is something you are currently experiencing in your home, we encourage you to reach out to the professional plumbing team at Oosterveld Heating for assistance! Our team is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and does not charge extra fees for services executed after hours, on weekends, or on holidays.

If every drain in your home is clogged, it is vital that you contact a professional plumber immediately. While waiting for a plumber to arrive, do not turn on any faucets or flush any toilets to prevent further backup from occurring.

Ask us about sump pumps for home protection.

A sump pump helps protect your home from flooding at its lowest point (i.e., basement).

It safely removes excess water that builds up after an event such as an excess rainfall, which has many financial and health benefits for homeowners:

  • Protect your home from water damage
  • Prevent basement floods
  • Sewage backup protection
  • Reduce health hazards such as mold and mildew
  • Decrease humidity in your home

Ask a Oosterveld Heating Home Comfort Advisor about sump pumps for your home plumbing needs today.

What Homeowners Say About Us

I was very impressed with Oosterveld Heating and AC and would definitely recommend them. Phil came right away and provided an excellent quote for the combination boiler hot water tank for my 1948 home with radiators. The install team was excellent and did not leave a mess behind. I am very pleased with the system and how efficiently it runs. The girls in the office are very friendly and followed up after the install to make sure I was a satisfied customer.”​
