Does Your Lawn Have Sewer Line Problems?

Mar 1, 2008
Sometimes it can happen so unexpectedly, no matter how good we care for our yards, every house owner can be visited by sewage situations. This is for sure one kind of water damage you do not ever want to have. It is one of the dirtiest, most hazardous ordeals you could ever have the unfortunate pleasure of dealing with.

Sewage waste can come up in the best of yards if a sewage pipe suddenly burst, or comes apart at a seam due to sewage back up, a tree root, or because of the condition of an old line. If you have a large yard you might not see it immediately, but it probably will not be long until you smell it.

Sewage system repair and clean up could get somewhat expensive and the sooner it is dealt with the better. The first thing you must do is get in touch with your insurance company. They might send someone out or tell you what to do next. In almost all these situations you will find it necessary to engage someone experienced to fix the issue. For the moment, keep children and pets well away from the damaged section. Do not touch any of the contamination yourself. Sewage water is very hazardous and carries all kinds of health compromising bacteria and germs.

If you let a company fix the sewage problem in your yard, get estimates from at least a few well known sewer repair companies that have excellent service histories. Always be sure before you let someone do the job that both parties realize what the repair and clean up will involve, how much it is going to cost, and how long the job should take to be done. Get it in writing and it is not advisable give payment in full until the job has been finished to your satisfaction. Being licensed and insured is necessary for anyone you engage.

Repairing any damaged sewer lines is an essential part of the job, but the clean up of the extremely unsanitary waste is just as necessary. Be positive this area of the job is done and adheres to any local ordinances that might be in place concerning sewage clean up. If your sewage situation was caused by the city sewage system, they should be responsible for the repair.

Using a septic line cleaner that may be flushed down the toilet is a good precaution for build up in your sewer pipes, especially in older lines. These cleaning solutions are inexpensive and easy to use. They should be helpful to keep your sewer system clear of clogs.
