Most people don’t spend much time thinking about their sewer lines — until they’re forced to. Unfortunately, many homeowners have to deal with backed-up sewer lines, forcing them out of their homes. A backed-up sewer line poses one of the worst plumbing problems because of the dangers they present to homeowners.
Backed-up sewer lines are a major health hazard to homeowners and residents. Sewage can spread illness, disease, and, in some cases, lead to death. Sewage is full of dangerous contaminants — including viruses and bacteria. Additionally, sewage can also contain toxic substances such as pesticides, fungi, residual pharmaceutical drugs, and more.
Some of the most common types of bacteria found in sewage include E. Coli, Salmonella, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, and more. If your sewer line bursts and you come in contact with any of these bacteria, you may become very ill.
