Lombard, a village in Illinois, has a population of about 43,000 and was named after Chicago banker and real estate developer, Josiah Lombard. It’s the home of the annual Lilac Festival and Parade every May. Lombard gives off an air of sweet-smelling success. But the sweet smells can be ruined by a backed up sewer if one is not careful.
A backed up sewer can be a messy, and often times, smelly affair. It can be caused by a number of things, from debris blockage, busted pipes, or even roots of trees growing into pipes. No matter the reason, one must be extra vigilant in keeping their sewer pipes from backing up, to spare you the headache of basement floods.
Solutions and Sewer Backup Prevention
When you experience basement floods during rainstorms, and it comes up from the pipes, it’s likely you have a backed up sewer line. First things first, if this happens, do not touch or walk on the water. Turn off all power first to avoid electrocution.

It will prevent floods from backed up sewers. Virtually undetectable, these systems ensure that no matter how hard the rain is pouring, your basement won’t get flooded by backed up sewer lines.
