ROOT INTRUSION

People in Maryland love big, old trees that seem like they could tell a thousand stories. Unfortunately, those trees that we love so much also love our pipes. the pipes coming from our homes carry water and other nutrients, and the roots of those trees are attracted to vapors coming from any cracks or loose fittings, no matter how small. The root than digs itself into the gap and grows inside the pipe, causing havoc with your plumbing system.

Know the Signs
The first sign of root intrusion is slow draining throughout the house. You may also hear gurgling coming from any of your toilets, sinks and drains. If the root is allowed to continue growing, then it can cause the entire pipe to be blocked, and then potentially to collapse completely. Needless to say, this can be an expensive and aggravating issue to fix.
