We all know that trees grow roots and sometime they can get in the way of our sewer system, which ultimately can cause major headaches. Tree roots are nasty and the longer they sit in ones line the longer it takes to remove them. Major sewer root problems call for a camera inspection along side the cleaning process. Getting every strand of root is not the goal, but getting the problem areas are. Sewer lines are put together in sections which means that in every joint you can have root intrusion.
Don’t panic next time your sewer line backs up. Call the professionals ASAP and have the job done right. Drain cleaning needs to be done properly and with the right machinery. Our company see’s homeowners open up their own sewer lines with wimpy cables and blades. The rental machines don’t compare to what the professionals use. Time after time we have pulled out cables that homeowners have lost in their own sewer lines. Just like any other profession drain cleaning needs to be done the right way or major excavation costs will hit you unexpectedly.
Ken’s Sewer Service is here for your help.
