Why is sewage damage in Chicago such a problem?


Well there is many reasons why Chicago floods.  When the Chicago Fire happened much of the city was destroyed. The city of Chicago was rebuilt and the current sewer system installed. Much of the sewer system has been unchanged since. That is a very old system under the city that requires constant maintenance and repair. Chicago used to be a very unsanitary place to live because of the constant flooding.  Chicago is now one of the best cities on earth.

Chicago is the city we love! We are all from Chicago and grew up Bears fans! Some of us like the Cubs and some of us like the Sox but we all want Cubs tickets! We were all Jordan fans when he was rocking the Bulls to six championships. Most of us have been cruising up and down LSD while working. Thankfully none of our jobs have come from Lake Michigan flooding the Field Museum or anything like that. Most of the sewage backup jobs we do are in Chicago, Illinois! That is definitely because Chicago is the third largest city in the country. Chicago has changed a lot over the years but you can tell we’ve been here awhile because we refer to the Willis Tower as the Sears Tower out of habit. Nothing sounds more like Chicago to me than seeing AC/DC at Wrigley Field except maybe seeing the Bears beating the Packers at Soldier Field! The city is so cool that Batman had to be filmed here. Ferris Bueller was made here as well. Chicago is a great place to make a movie. Transformers was made here as well! I loved the part on Lower Wacker drive.

The city of Chicago was once raised several feet to address a drainage problem. Chicago used to sit almost eye to eye with Lake Michigan, which caused significant drainage issues! Chicago was raised so living conditions could improve. Nobody wants a flooded basement for all sorts of reasons. Chicago still has drainage issues and we recommend talking to your plumber about flood prevention systems. The more people that get flood prevention installed into their home the greater chance your house will flood if you have no flood prevention. For your flood prevention needs I’d recommend The Plumbing Doctor.
