- As mentioned, an unusual amount of rain above the threshold of what the sewers are able to handle.
- Improper disposal of goods in the toilet, garbage disposal or drains.
- A buildup of tree roots in the drain lines;
- Or, worst case scenario, a collapsed, broken or otherwise damaged sewer line.
How to Prevent Sewer BackupsFirst of all, familiarize yourself with some of the signs of a sewer drain backup. Having that knowledge means you can react quickly, or even before things go wrong. Even still, it’s always better to be proactive rather than finding yourself in a situation where you’re forced to be reactive. One way to ensure that your home is in good shape to prevent a sewer line backup is through a video camera inspection. Having a video camera inspection ensures that potential causes for concern are addressed before the issue rears its ugly head, and any underlying issues are dealt with in a swift and stress-free manner. Our camera equipment acts like “eyes in the drain line,” so to speak, showing you exactly the scope and detail of any possible issues. It will tell us if there are portions of your drain line that have been compromised by tree roots, which will make the problem even worse, if unchecked. For a limited time, you can even get a coupon for a video camera inspection of your plumbing.

Drain Cleaning – Fantastic experience We contacted DrainWorks to inspect our sewer drains and investigate the cause for the backup. Within a couple of days they had a service guy come out and take a look. They took the time to explain everything that was wrong and make many different suggestions on how to correct the situation. They did a fantastic job, very clean, knowledgeable and did the job on time and on budget. Would definitely recommend drain works to all my family and friends. – David in Woodbridge
Sewer Backup I had a sewer backup and i called Drainworks and the Representative i spoke to was great very knowledgeable and very efficient. He got a technician to come check out my drain asap. Now, Matthew the technician, was very efficient himself. He knew exactly what the problem was and confirmed it by putting a camera into to the sewer and ofcourse it was tree roots growing in the sewer which was causing the backup and blocking the water from flowing thru. Well ofcourse then Matthew snacked the drain and then all was well. So at this point am very happy with the service that Drainworks provided me with and will definitely recommend them to anyone. – Janicen, Brampton
