The Main Causes of Sewer Damage In Your Home

March 13, 2020

If you are connected to a sewer system, your water drains throughout a series of pipes that start to increase in size the closer they get towards the wastewater treatment plant. Drains in your home connect to a tube that moves used water towards a sewer in the street. This is known as your sewer line. And, just like all things, your sewer line will age, and you could experience the adverse side effects of that process. If you worry that your main sewer line is on the outs, several different causes could be to blame, and many clues that a disaster is likely. Here are the leading causes of sewer damage in your home. If you have any issues with your sewer line, call Hydro Clean Certified Restoration for expert help!


Sewer Line

Moving soil can cause some severe sewer damage. It can crack and break your sewer line if it is jostled around a bit too much, and the rupture could result in leaks, flooding, disgusting odors, and could even contaminate your water. This oversized pipe could even collapse if there is too much movement, or it starts to freeze during a particularly chilly winter.


Clogs start to occur when waste, grease, debris, food, and other foreign objects begin to make their way down through your drain and build up until nothing is able is able to pass through. Over time, these sewer clogs can cause weak points that will cause the pipe to burst with even the smallest amount of pressure. Thankfully, clogs are quite easy to avoid if you know everything that is not drain-friendly. Ask the experts from Hydro Clean on what not to send down your drains to prevent sewer damage.


Your sewer lines are probably made up of metal, so corrosion is virtually guaranteed to occur over time. This breakdown of the metal means that the pipe is much more susceptive to cracking, so you must keep a close eye on your line so it can be replaced or fixed before the real damage occurs.
