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.
