Recommendations to Avoid or Mitigate Damage from A Sewer Backup

  • Review homeowner’s insurance policy to verify coverage for sewer backups
  • Don’t plant deep rooted trees over or immediately adjacent to sewer service pipes
  • Do not wash grease, fats or oils from food preparation down the drain. Deposit these materials in the trash.
  • Periodically have your sewer service pipe video inspected by a reputable firm and clean the pipe when necessary.
