If you are experiencing slow drains, wastewater backups, or any type of flooding from the drains back into your home, it is a good idea to call for a drain inspection to make sure you don’t have roots growing into your pipes. The damage from sewer backup can be incredibly hazardous to your household, and the danger posed by tree roots is just as serious. If there is any sign of a root invasion, you should contact a professional drain cleaning company to inspect your lines.

Rooter services aim to eradicate the problems caused by roots before serious damage can be done to your plumbing system and home. A blocked drain will be problematic enough for your home. However, a blocked drain caused by roots could mean the sewer line is blocked, which will make drain problems more catastrophic if it is not remedied. Tree roots are living and growing, meaning they will feed off the moisture from the drain and could cause the pipe to burst. Rooter services can immediately locate and solve the issue of root invasion in your pipes by removing the tree roots and then repairing or replacing the damaged pipe so that you are left with a clean drain pipe that will be free of roots and clogs.

An inspection of the roots can be beneficial because it can identify any significant problems before they grow out of control. Regular rooter service can also keep the water in your pipes flowing without interruption.

What You’ll Avoid with Drain and Rooter Maintenance

Drain clogs are one of the first things to avoid with regular rooter checkups. There can be numerous causes of slow drains, such as the gradual buildup of hair, grease, soap scum, and food particles that can stick to the pipe walls over time. Some basic maintenance steps to prevent this include putting strainers over drains and keeping paper products and food out of the drains. However, clogs do build up naturally over time, which is why it is essential to have regular drain cleaning and inspection to make sure everything is running as it should.

High water pressure can be a big problem for your pipes because it can create too much force to damage them. It will also increase water bills since more water is being used than necessary. There could be various signs of this, like leaking faucets, pipes banging, and running toilets. A pressure regulator is a good way to prevent this problem, since that can reduce the pressure to a safer level if the water is coming in too strongly.

Strange smells can occur with significant mold and debris buildup within the pipes. Cleaning out your drains and garbage disposal on a regular basis can help prevent this issue and ensure food residue or mold is not sitting stagnant within the drain. A baking soda and vinegar solution followed by boiling water is a great DIY method for this.

Damage to the house can result if leaky pipes and fixtures are left unchecked. Leaking plumbing pipes and utilities can lead to water damage to the walls, floors, and ceilings of your home. If severe enough, this could lead to the structure sagging or even collapsing. Regular inspections are important to catch any leaks before they get worse, and if you do suspect you leak, you should act immediately.

Damaged pipes can lead to leaks and damage to your home. If the weather is cold enough and the pipes are not properly insulated, they can be prone to freezing and bursting. Frozen or burst pipes can disrupt the water supply and lead to severe leaking and water damage. Having pipes insulated and regularly inspected can help you stay ahead of any potential pipe damage.
Other plumbing issues can include discolored water, inadequate water pressure, or slow-moving drains. All of these problems can be caused by clogs in the pipes, which could be caused by root invasion. It is important to conduct regular DIY drain maintenance yourself, like flushing out the drains with water and using the baking soda and vinegar solution, as well as have inspections done by professional plumbers to ensure that there are no problems with your plumbing that will cause extreme problems down the line.
