Fallen Leaves & Sewer Clogs

It seems unfair, doesn’t it? You take great care of your home’s plumbing only to find out you have a sewer clog. It’s not your fault; blame Mother Nature.

Once they fall, all those beautiful leaves have to go somewhere. Oftentimes, they end up in gutters, wreaking havoc on sewer lines. They collect in pipes where they eventually can clog, causing sewage backups in homes and businesses.

While you can’t control falling leaves, there are certain things you can do to prevent them from clogging sewer lines:

  1. Maintain your property. Perform lawn maintenance regularly throughout the fall. Raking and bagging leaves that fall on your property will help keep them out of the street and in gutters.
  2. Avoid raking leaves into the street. Most towns try their best to keep up with leaves and other debris in the street. However, they can’t keep roads clear 100 percent of the time.
