What You Should Know...to Help Mitigate a Sewer Backup

Do not dispose of paper towels, diapers and feminine hygiene products in your residential sewer line. These products do not deteriorate quickly like bathroom tissue and should be disposed of in your household garbage.

Avoid pouring cooking oil and grease down the sewer drain. There is a common misconception that it is okay to wash grease down the drain with hot water. In fact, the hot water will help to carry the grease down the drain, but quickly cools off as it flows into the sewer drain. When it does, it can solidify and clog the drain resulting in a sewer backup.

Review your residential insurance policy or contact your agent to determine if your policy covers damages due to sewer backups and/or water damage. In many cases this additional coverage can be purchased at a minimal cost to cover your home in the event of a sewer back up incident.
