In order to keep your home’s plumbing system running smoothly, it’s important that you have a professional plumber perform maintenance on your main line sewer on a regular basis. While most homeowners don’t realize the importance of mainline sewer maintenance in Westchester County, routine maintenance of your main line sewer is one way you can help prevent sewer line backups. A clogged main line sewer can lead to drainage problems inside of your home, and eventually to the need for expensive mainline sewer replacement.
Here are a few problems that mainline sewer maintenance can help you avoid:
Tree roots: Even if you don’t have any trees in your yard, tree roots can still be a problem for your main sewer line. Large, old-growth trees can spread their roots out far and wide, invading the sewer lines in neighboring yards. Your WestchesterCounty plumber can check for tree roots in your main line sewer by doing a camera inspection, and remove any tree roots he or she finds before they become an issue.
Grease, paper, and sludge: Over time your main line sewer can become clogged by things you put down your drains like cooking grease and toilet paper. If left unchecked, this waste can eventually lead to a mainline sewer back up in your home. Regular maintenance to check for debris in your sewer line can help you avoid these types of clogs.
Broken and damaged pipes: Sewer pipes that are broken or damaged are one of the main causes of mainline backups. Rough surfaces inside of cracked pipes can catch debris, eventually causing a build up. Broken pipes can fail to allow sewage to leave your home and enter your municipal sewer system. Regular camera inspections can let you know right away if your main sewer line is damaged, allowing you time to fix the problem before more serious damage occurs.
