Main Sewer Line Tree Roots

We can’t stress en enough that tree roots grow in sewer lines and they should be cleaned out before a backed up line occurs.

Main sewer lines have tree roots that grow all year round and cutting them out is just like taking your car in for an oil change or getting yourself a haircut. Just because you don’t see an issue doesn’t mean it’s not happening and not causing a major problem. Drain and sewer cleaning should be thought about and scheduled just like anything else you plan in life.

Sump Pump Motor & Basket

You may think nothing of your sump pump but what does it really mean?

Most houses need and have a sump pump in their homes. The reason is so water doesn’t get into your home. Low spots in homes tend to have annoying standing water siting their. Sometimes in the laundry room and sometimes in a nice carpeted family area which either way can get really old, quick.

Simply put what does a sump pump do? What is their main function?

Sump pumps remove water from underneath your house before it raises up and gets into your home. Which means if the pump motor doesn’t work during a major flooding storm you could end up flooding your house.

Every spring test your sump pump system or hire a company to come out and help. It’s better to pay a service call then to re-do your entire basement due to flooding.

Severe Thunderstorms = Heavy Rains

Make sure after every heavy rain storm you check your basement floor making sure it’s dry. Heavy rains can cause backed up sewer line and a tremendous mess. Make sure your sump pump is running and pumping water if you have one in your home. Don’t assume your plumbing systems is just working. Things break down all the time in life when you least expect it to. Debris from a storm that is thrown into the sewer and large amounts of water can also cause major back-ups and flooding in your home.
