Home of the annual Lilac Festival, Lombard in DuPage County, Illinois is a village with a population of 43,395. But sometimes, even a sweet smelling festival can’t prevent messy problems from arising in residents’ homes – problems such as a backed up sewer.
When you basement gets wet, you might blame it on the rain or the melting snow, which is normal. But then the basement gets flooded in the middle of a hot day, what then? If your basement floods suddenly without the help of precipitation, maybe your sewer is backed up, causing the flood.
A backed up sewer happens when your drain pipes become clogged with debris. This causes water to escape, not through its regular route, but through where it came. But clogged pipes due to debris are not the only reason. Sometimes tree roots play a part when it starts to grow into pipes, causing blockage, or if the pipes collapse or get broken due to age.
