The Truth About Tree Roots
Tree roots are sneaky. And your home’s plumbing system is perfect growing conditions because roots can gather water and nutrients from waste that flows from your bathroom and kitchen. There aren’t many signs to let you know that you need root cutting services, but some signs may include:
- Foul odors rising from drains inside or outside of the home.
- Unexplained clogs or backed up drains with slow or low drainage.
- Unexplained wet spots or standing water in your yards.
- Bright green and random growths of grass around your property.
Typically, when you notice signs from root infestation, it has gotten to the point where the roots are growing and causing leaks in your pipes. Most of the time, leaks are easy fixes, but those roots have to first be cut and pulled to prevent further growth.
Discovering problems with your home’s plumbing system begins and ends with inspections. For more information about root cutting pipe repair service, call WAECO Drain & Sewer at 206-637-0965. You can schedule an appointment that meshes well with your routine!
