Chicagoland root removal: What You Should Know
We know that a good tree can be almost like a pet. It’s a nice addition, a good companion, to a yard or street; but it’s also important that your pipes still work, regardless of what your natural neighbor gets up to. This is why Parks’ Plumbing & Sewer takes care to, if possible, keep the tree in as good a health as possible, while restoring your pipes to a functional condition.
Signs of a root blockage
Sometimes, drains just run slow. Other times, there can be a clog or block right near the mouth of the drain. Issues can even come from further down the pipes, and roots growing through the drain can definitely be one of the sources of those issues.
Like any clogging problem, one of the beginning signs of an issue can be strange odors coming from your toilet or sink/shower drains. Roots blocking the pipes can be a home for a lot of bacteria and other contaminants. This often causes musty, pungent odors to waft up through the drains.
The final outcome from tree root blockage could be sewage or drain water—it depends on what pipes they’ve snaked themselves into—overflow and flooding, usually in your basement and sometimes in your yard. When this happens, no matter what, a professional plumber is usually going to be needed to get the situation back under control.
