Tree roots are gorgeous and important to the health of the tree. However, they are also invasive when they reach out next to your Covina pipes. They want food and water and will keep stretching and pushing until they find it. If they happen to find both of those in your pipes (and they will), then they will continue to grow and take over your pipes. If you believe you have an issue with tree roots, Drain Doctor Covina can help.
Signs You Have Roots in Your Covina Pipes
The easiest way to know for sure if you happen to have any tree roots in your sewer pipes is to have us come out and perform a sewer camera inspection on your pipes. This way, we can see exactly what condition your pipes are in and if there are any issues clogging your pipes. However, you can also tell something is off by having slow drains, frequent clogs, and sudden growth in your trees over the most recent year or two. Each of these signs points to something clogging up your pipe, and if you happen to have a large tree on your Covina property, it could very well be the culprit.
How We Get Rid of Those Roots
There are two effective methods of removing tree roots from pipes. The first involves us taking an auger and pushing it through your pipes. The metal blades cut up the roots and they then go down into the sewer. The other option is using hydro jetting. This is when we cut up the roots using pressurized water. This method is safer for most pipes but equally as effective as the auger.
