Last year’s Colorado floods caused huge stress for the people in cities like Boulder. In The Denver Channel, Jaclyn Allen and Anica Padilla cited the main problems that arose during and in the aftermath of the flooding.

Blockage and debris congestion was not the only concern, as the unsanitary environment threatened the quality of life. Sewage water rose above the ground, penetrating basements and bringing a stench that kept residents from getting clean air outside.

The culprit, as city spokeswoman Sarah Huntley explained, was the blockage in the system. Getting them unclogged became top priority following the flooding.

Increased precipitation is not the only element to blame here. Blockage can be caused by anyone or anything and can happen anytime anywhere; your home included. When you throw paper products or even cooked fat and oil in the sink or toilet, blockage is likely to occur. The Denver sewer system, as with other sewer systems, is usually designed to process human waste and toilet tissue flowing through them. The oil, for instance, can form a thick layer around the pipes and prevents sewage from flowing as it should.

Waste water, as a result, cannot leave your home and may bring more inconvenience. Imagine if rain comes and causes additional strain to your blocked drain and sewers. Your lovely Denver home, as well as your area, can easily turn into the dark sewer.

If you find a blocked drain or sewer at home, don’t hesitate to call experts to clear it up for you before it gets worse. Expert drain cleaning in Denver is a craft dedicated companies like Freedom Plumbing offer to address homes’ blockage issues and prevent area flooding.
