The main sewer drain coming from your house may be under attack and you might not even know it until it’s too late. Lurking just below your lawn’s pristine surface may be a network of creeping, insidious fibrous roots. Left unchecked these roots can wreak havoc by infiltrating drain pipes and causing blockages. These roots begin to grow when the weather changes from cold to warm and vice versa. As the spring season ushers in warmer temperatures, now is the time to tackle that root problem.
Here at Franklin Plumbing & Drain Cleaning, we utilize a hydrojetter with a root-cutting head. This enables us to control the root growth inside the pipe. We then coat the inside of the sewer line with a chemical that causes the root to wither and die when it touches it. This service needs to be done every 8-9 months to keep the roots at bay; there is usually a 3-4 month window when the roots are dormant.
So, if you want to keep your main drain pipe free from obstruction that can potentially cause messy and unhealthy backups in your home, give Franklin a call today. We can determine if you have a root problem and what needs to be done to remedy it.
