As wonderful as it is, spring sometimes brings its share of inconveniences. Indeed, Mother Nature is afflicting us with its hazards, the extent of which we do not know, of course. One thing is certain, however, melting snow causes a surplus of water that the saturated ground cannot absorb. There is therefore a risk of flooding, from which sewer backflow occurs. Find out how to prevent and counter this near-natural phenomenon of potentially huge proportions.
In addition to soil saturation caused by spring snowmelt, a sewage backup can be caused by the accumulation of organic substances, tree roots, non-biodegradable waste such as wipes, diapers, feminine hygiene products, cooking oil and grease.
The first sign of a sewage backup is undoubtedly the foul-smelling odour that escapes from drains and accumulates in the house. Then, you should be on the lookout for water backflows through drains in the house, for example at the kitchen sink. Gurgling from drains, such as the shower, can be a sign of sewer backup, as can sinks or tubs that empty slowly.
Of course, in case of a sewage backup, do not wait before acting. Contact Pure Plomberie experts immediately and they will come to your home as soon as possible. In the meantime, avoid using your facilities and turn off the water. Once the specialist is on site, he will assess the problem, then clear and clean the affected equipment or pipes.
