How to Remove Roots in Your Drainage System 

Trees are one of man’s natural beauty, however, if they are allocated near your property they can cause damage to your home. The roots of a tree happily grow underground and spread up to three times the height of the tree, unfortunately for homeowners, they like to navigate themselves towards drainage and pipes to feed off the water. 

Big and small trees may look beautiful surrounding a home and give the property privacy, but they can also generate problems for the property owner which can be expensive. The roots that search for water especially if it has been a dry season can spread to the sewer pipes. One problem trees growing near a home can cause is sewer damage that results in millions of dollars being spent each year by homeowners having their lawns unearthed and the sewer replaced or repaired and roots removed. 

When a person buys a property they rarely look at the trees near the home and think what damage they can cause, most people are also unaware that any damage caused by trees to their sewer pipes is the responsibility of the homeowner.

Although it is natural of trees and allow them to look as beautiful as they do, this is bad news for the homeowner who is forced to have the damaged caused by the roots repaired which can be expensive and problematic.
