What can Lead to Sewer Repair Needs?

Monday, April 11th, 2016

When you think of the things around your home that may need repairs, you may first think of items such as your heating and cooling systems, with their many moving parts and electrical components. What you may not immediately think of is your sewer line, though. Just because your sewer line is not a complex piece of machinery, however, does not mean that it is invulnerable. Eventually, you may find yourself in need of sewer line repairs in Bloomington, IL. If and when you do, we recommend that you schedule service with the pros here on our staff.

What Can Cause Sewer Line Damages?

There are quite a few reasons why your sewer line may run into repair needs. First of all, it is possible for your sewer line to become so corroded that it will start to leak, and repairs or a replacement may be necessary. Shifts in the soil on your property could also lead to sewer line problems, as well as damages sustained during projects such as house remodels. Tree roots are another very common cause of sewer line damages, surprising as that may sound. Tree roots are very strong, and they are very determined when seeking out a water supply. If they find that supply in your sewer line, they can infiltrate the pipe and do considerable damage.

How Will I Know?

You may think that, because your sewer line is buried from view, there is no way in which you can recognize the need for sewer line repairs. This is far from true, though. If your sewer line is damaged, you may smell the foul odor of sewage in or around your property. You may also have patches of oddly thriving grass on your lawn, as the leak in the pipe fertilizes the grass above it. Frequent toilet backups or clogged drains may also indicate the need for sewer repairs.
