Even the most conscientious homeowner will encounter certain plumbing issues. Whether it is an adventurous toddler sending a toy down the commode or natural grime buildup in your pipes, some things are difficult to avoid. Every homeowner will experience one plumbing issue or another from time to time.
Sewer Lines Penetrated by Tree Roots: Invasive tree roots are one of the largest problems any homeowner will face. They commonly afflict sewer lines and are able to seek out the tiniest bit of moisture in the ground. Even a small leak can lead to a root problem, which is why it is important to have a plumber inspect your system on a biennial basis.
Grime Buildup in Drains: Grime builds naturally within the walls of your pipes, especially near the kitchen and bath drains. This can consist of oils and bacteria that are further compounded by cooking grease, soap, and shampoo. This grime can cause odors that are difficult to remove and can pervade into a room.
Human-Caused Blockages throughout the Home: Further adding to home plumbing issues are regular habits. As mentioned above, it is easy to add to natural bacterial film with soap residue and grease. Mechanical clogs result from the accumulation of hair or vegetable debris in drains. An excess of bathroom tissue can clog a toilet, or catch upon tree roots and create a blockage of your sewer line.
Many issues can be avoided with regular maintenance, but eventually, it is likely you will need a plumber’s assistance to clear tough clogs or address invasive roots.
