Sewage backup and clogged drains are a major frustration that can also wreak havoc on your home’s plumbing system; one common cause of this issue is tree root infiltration.
Roots are tough and can creep through the soil and enter your leaking or moist pipes through even the smallest crack. They can grow relentlessly from there until they’re completely blocking the pipe.
Some signs of tree root infiltration include soggy spots in your yard, foul-smelling odors near your toilet or on other parts of your property, or slow drains. Fortunately, tree root infiltration can be prevented.
