Sewage Backup Prevention Measures
We can handle any type of sewage-related situation that we encounter, but we are also regularly contacted by people simply looking for advice on how to prevent a sewage crisis altogether.
The first step in overcoming a sewage disaster is understanding what it is. Sewage is considered a category three water because it is filled with harmful bacteria and toxins that can affect your health upon contact.
“We get calls every day from people who just want to protect their home from sewage exposure,” Dan says. Along with protecting your home, we also go to great lengths to protect the health of everyone in the building.
“This is why we have generated a long list of things that people can do to keep their homes high, dry, and free of category three water.”
- Never place anything into the plumbing system that it was not designed to handle. This includes some piles of paper or items that claim to be biodegradable after use.
- Have a plumbing professional inspect your system for areas of wear and tear that may become a problem if put under pressure.
- Make sure that if your home has had any recent additions that your septic field is still capable of handling the increased influx of activity.
- If you do take on a sewage backup, don’t let it linger for too long without professional attention. This can lead to mold growth at a rapid pace and this can be harmful to your health and that of your loved ones too.
“This is by no means a complete and total list, so if anyone has questions about their situation that haven’t been addressed here, they should immediately call us for help,” Dan says.

Improper Hookup for Mobile Home Causes Sewage Backup
Much of the work that we take on is from systems that are overwhelmed and can’t function properly, but every once in a while they get called out to a project with a home that has had work done improperly which then caused a backup to occur.
“We got a project recently where we went to a mobile home that had standard hookups which were not properly secured,” Dan says, “This is the first thing we noticed, and so after properly attaching the line, we went about cleaning up the property of all the sewage backup damages.”
We got straight to work helping the home back to normal after the incident and this involved suctioning up category three water that had been accumulating for quite some time and had formed an Earth-like crust which took extra care to eliminate.
“We really had to bring in the best tools and techniques for this project because the damages had been going on for a long time before anyone noticed,” Co-owner Kathy says. “But that’s just what we do for our clients because we really care about them and their homes.”
If your home or business has recently experienced a pipe burst, backflow valve failure, toilet overflow or any other means of sewage-related concern, then don’t wait until to grows mold before contacting our sewage backup Lehigh Valley experts to have it taken care of properly!
