Heavy Rain Causes Sewer Backup
Many people are not aware that a heavy rain storm can cause a sewer backup. This homeowner in Fruitport, MI experienced just that. If you have a drainfield in your yard, it is important to keep that area as dry as possible. Direct runoff water away from the drainfield and keep your gutters free of debris. If the drainfield becomes overly saturated after a heavy storm, try to reduce the amount of water that goes down your drains. That water will be unable to drain properly and can easily result in a sewer backup into your home. If you experience a sewer backup, we are Here to Help!
