How to Deal With Tree Root Invasions in Your Sewer Line

Most pipe clogs and blockages usually have something to do with age and materials of the pipes and can be from poor maintenance of the sewer system and drain. However, there have been many instances where tree roots are the sole cause of it. The intrusions can be subtle and hard to detect at first. Then, they eventually get to the point where they can actually pierce the pipe and cause leaking. The experts at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Phoenix are available to provide professional drain cleaning in Scottsdale, AZ. Here’s our advice on how you can deal with these invasions:

Use Chemical

Salts, intrusion killers, and other chemicals can be of use to you if you notice the start of the growth in your pipes. Although these products are made for the purpose of eliminating the issue you should always consult a professional first to avoid causing more damage than you intend to. Call a professional for drain cleaning services if you need assistance in using these chemicals to clear them.

Get Professional Pipe Replacement

If your clogged drain has reached the point where your sink and toilet or other fixtures in your home are unusable, you should call a professional to get your pipes replaced. Mr. Rooter also offers a FREE Second Opinion inspection and quote. These will only continue to grow and overwhelm your pipes until they have pierced through them and other parts of the line.

Get Professional Cleaning

Calling a drain cleaning company is usually the most sound solution to invasive elements. Professionals are already equipped with the proper tools, materials, and knowledge needed to adequately handle the situation and prevent it from happening again.

You can also take advantage of this opportunity by getting preventative maintenance tips from the professionals, such as learning how you can spot signs of incoming intrusions before they disturb the line. Our hydro jetting services are an excellent solution to a variety of clogs and are effective against invasions until you are ready for that repair that is possibly needed.
