Tree Root Problems

Invasive tree roots can cause expensive home plumbing problems

A great deal of damage caused to residential drainage systems can be attributed to invasive tree roots. Roots are naturally inclined to grow toward water sources—called hydrotropism—and flourish in moist areas. Over time, those tree roots can eventually compromise your pipes, which can lead not just to blockages but collapsed drains and all the other problems and expenses that can come with those issues.

When tree roots initially compromise a drain, it is imperative to deal with that problem as soon as possible. Unfortunately, clients who do not schedule regular drain cleaning are often unaware that the problem has been initiated. The roots will therefore continue to grow unchecked, which can quite quickly lead to the expensive complications mentioned earlier.

These specialists are available to homes and business alike and can deal with all manner of root intrusion. Our team performs high-pressure jetting and employs electromechanical techniques with specialised blades that can cut through the toughest organic matter.
