Understanding the root causes behind sewage problems is pivotal in mitigating their impact. Familiarizing yourself with these triggers can empower you to take preventative measures. Here are the prevailing reasons behind sewer backup occurrences in commercial establishments:

  1. Compromised pipe integrity or misaligned connections and joints in the plumbing system
  2. Intrusion of tree roots into pipes and plumbing infrastructure
  3. Accumulation of grease and inappropriate flushing practices within the building
  4. Neglected cleaning and maintenance, especially in high-traffic commercial environments where vigilant upkeep is paramount
  5. Settlement of soil in and around the building, exerting pressure on the plumbing and sewer system
