Prevent a Sewer Backup in Your Lombard Home and Save Thousands in Repair Fees

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.

Pain in the Drain: Holidays Can Be Rough on Your Plumbing

Pain in the Drain: Holidays Can Be Rough on Your Plumbing

This time of year can certainly be a festive time for many homeowners, but they can also be a tough time for your sewer lines. The incorrect disposal of cooking grease, overuse of garbage disposals and added disposal of paper waste from guests are frequent culprits of pipe-clogging sewer problems. If you don’t catch a blockage in time, your household plumbing items will become inoperable and, even worse, raw sewage can back up through toilets, tubs and sinks into your home. Here are three tip to help avoid trouble in your home this holiday season:

1. Do not pour oil down a drain. Baking, frying and roasting can result in beautiful holiday dinners, but also leaves behind lots of excess cooking oils, grease and fats. Instead of pouring them down a drain, put them into a garbage bag or into a sealed container before disposing in the trash. Be careful, even small amounts of grease in a drain can cause a problem. You could also ask your municipalities if they have any collection services for large amounts of used cooking oils.
