Red Flags of Tree Root Intrusion in Your Pipes

Tree roots in drain and sewer lines can be dangerous for your home. They are destructive and attract unwanted guests like insects and rodents. They often go unnoticed until the damage is done and costly fixes are needed.

The good news is that you can watch for red flags indicating tree roots in your pipeline. The following are signs it’s time to call C. Lee Services for preemptive sewer line repair in Akron, OH.

Slow Drains

If your sink or tub takes longer than it should drain, it could be due to a clog caused by tree roots. Tree roots can penetrate through the cracks and gaps on your pipes and expand inside, creating blockages. This is especially true in older pipes made of clay or cast iron. When multiple drains in your home are slow-moving, seek sewer repair services as soon as possible.

Gurgling Sounds

If you hear gurgling sounds from your drains when you turn on the faucet, tree root intrusion might be the culprit. The sound is caused by air bubbles trapped in root-filled pipes. Tree roots penetrate pipes to absorb water and nutrients. At the same time, they break pipes, allowing air inside. You may need a sewer line replacement to remove the damaged pipes.

Unpleasant Odors

When tree roots start growing through your pipes, they can cause bacteria buildup. These bacteria produce foul-smelling gases like methane. If you notice an unpleasant odor coming from your drains or toilets, you might have an issue with tree root intrusion. Have a professional inspect your pipes to see if sewer pipe line repair is in order.

Tree roots can intrude your sewer lines and cause several problems. If you notice any of these warning signs, it's time to call C. Lee Services for efficient, prompt repairs. You can also rely on us for sewer installation and maintenance. Contact us today to book an appointment.
