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
