You need to reach out to Next Level Pipe Lining about our sewer repair services in Charlotte, NC, if you have an obvious or suspected backup. Whether or not you're currently dealing with a sewer backup, you'll appreciate knowing what to do if you do have one. Below, we cover the basics of how to deal with sewer-related backups.
Identify a Source
Before any decisions about sewer line repair are made, the first step to take in dealing with sewer backups is to identify a source. Common culprits include:
- Accumulated debris
- Tree root intrusions
- Collapsed or damaged sewer lines
Decide on an Appropriate Solution
In some cases, sewer line replacement is the more cost-effective way to deal with sewer backups. Other times, however, you may just need a good, thorough drain cleaning. It may also be possible to restore a damaged sewer line that's affected by backups and blockages internally. This is done with a process known as sewer or pipe lining, which involves applying a new coating to the inside of the affected pipe. What this does is restore normal flow without the need to dig.
Mitigate Future Sewer Backups
After sewer pipe line repair or other steps have been taken to resolve issues with backups, there are ways to reduce your risk of dealing with future backups. Achieve this goal by:
- Watching how you use your drains
- Scheduling routine drain line cleanings
- Having sewer line inspections done periodically
