Simi Valley Tree Root Invasion Services

Solutions for Tree Root Invasion in Ventura County & Los Angeles County 

Although trees are an excellent source of shade and natural beauty, the large root systems they produce can be harmful. When roots become drawn to the water running through pipes, they wrap themselves with the lines. A whole mass of roots can burst through the thick wall of a sewer drain. To keep one’s plumbing network safe, it is a good idea to invest in Simi Valley tree root invasion services. Talk to American Drain Company for more detailed support.

How to Tell that Tree Roots Have Invaded the Pipes 

The most effective way of confirming a root invasion is by scheduling a professional camera inspection. Since roots are buried deep underground, it can be hard to tell when they are just developing into a problem until it’s too late. By looking closely for subtle signs, one can spot trouble brewing in advance. 

A few of the most common signs of a tree root invasion include: 

  • Sinks, showers, and toilets that are slow to drain 
  • Constant clogs in the drain or toilet, despite multiple repairs 
  • A bad smell of rotting sewage or organic matter from the drains 
  • Toilets and sinks that keep gurgling or backing up 
  • Suspiciously green patches on the lawn, especially if they are near a tree 
  • Sinkholes located all around the front or back yard

How to Prevent Tree Root Invasion in the Future

It is not enough to just stop a current tree root invasion. The goal should also be to forestall these issues in the future. The good news is that there are some highly effective methods for halting roots in their tracks.

A few of the most successful strategies for keeping roots at bay include:

  • Having a root barrier installed: By placing a trench of about two feet around the root zone of a tree, it is possible to keep new roots from infiltrating the pipes.
  • Scheduling regular sewer and drain inspections: Roots grow very quickly, especially if they are drawn to a steady water source. Camera inspections can reveal every detail in the pipes, including a tangled mess of roots.
  • Using hydro jetting: Drains and sewers need cleaning to get rid of debris. When organic material from trees and bushes washes down, this will block up the drains and sewers even more. Hydro jetting is a safe but powerful method of blasting out leaves, branches, and roots clogging the system.

Here at American Drain Company, we are dedicated to meeting the needs of our clients. We can help protect sewers, drains, and water lines from being damaged by invasive tree roots. 

What Dissolves Tree Roots in Sewer Lines?

There are several chemical and mechanical methods that can be used to dissolve tree roots in sewer lines.

  • Copper sulfate - can be poured into the sewer line and left to sit for several hours to kill the roots
  • Foaming root killer - contains a combination of herbicides and surfactants to kill the roots and prevent regrowth
  • Mechanical solutions - such as using a rooter or hydrojetting can be effective in cutting through the roots and removing them from the sewer line

It's important to note that prevention is key, and regular maintenance such as pruning nearby trees or installing root barriers can help prevent root growth in sewer lines.
