When your sewer backs up, you don’t want to wait long for a solution. Water damage, pests, and the dangers of exposure to waste all make sewer line issues a high priority — no matter how minor the problem might seem at the moment.
When you find yourself facing sewer problems, you can trust the team at Len The Plumber to deliver a solution you can count on with top-notch professionalism and customer care.
Causes of Sewer Backups
A number of problems can lead to issues with your sewer line and leave you in need of professional assistance.
Whether you’re facing a difficult clog affecting your entire home or major leakage due to a natural disaster, any sewer line problem warrants quick resolution.
Our team most commonly deals with problems stemming from:
- Clogs: Clogs are almost inevitable without drain cleaning, but you’ll end up seeing worse clogs earlier if your sewer line is old and corroded, you have hard water, or you put things down the sink or toilet that cling and accumulate.
- Tree root infiltrations: Sewer lines pass through your lawn out toward the street, which frequently means they run close to tree roots. Over time, a tree’s growing roots can break and infiltrate your line, causing leakage and slowing drainage.
- Damaged sewer lines: Any number of accidents can lead to damaged sewer lines, from driving a heavy vehicle over the wrong part of your lawn to soil erosion and shifting to using corrosive liquid plumbing products to try to clear a clog.
- Heavy rains and floods: Between increased hydrostatic pressure trying to force water and mud into your pipes and soil erosion trying to relocate them, intense weather frequently leads to sewer line trouble.
