Emergency Sewer Backup Service Oakville
Let’s cut to it: sewage backups are downright disgusting – but they’re also dangerous.
That’s a huge health hazard seeping through your drains and into your basement or bathrooms.
Sewage poses a significant sanitary risk, and the longer you leave it alone, the worse it gets, so it’s best to act fast when you’re facing a sewer line backup.
Letting sewage leak into your home also means risking even more expensive repairs, plus damage to any possessions you’ve got in the basement: sewer backups can ruin those boxes of family photos, fast.
It’s not just a little water.
