A leak in your home’s sewer pipe requires immediate sewer line repair to avoid extensive and costly damage to your property. When you notice a sign of a leak on your home, be sure to contact Next Level Pipe Lining right away. We’ll perform an initial inspection to determine the location of the leak and then proceed with the repair. Here are some things you can do to prepare your home for this process:
1. Remove obstructions
To make sewer repair services in Gastonia, NC more efficient, you will first have to remove any obstructions in the area. These can include cars, toys, and outdoor furniture. The repair experts will require space to work so it’s advisable to remove extra materials at least one day before.
2. Do a little re-landscaping
When compared to complete pipe replacement, sewer pipe line repair is less invasive. However, it still requires a little digging. Unless you are getting trenchless repairs, you need to do some re-landscaping after the job is done.
3. Prepare to stay without running water
When doing sewer line replacement or extensive sewer repair, your home will have no running water. The time taken to complete the repairs varies depending on the severity of the damage. Some repairs can be finished in a few hours while others take days to complete. To avoid inconveniences, you should consider booking a hotel or staying with a friend or relative until the job gets done.
4. Consider removing trees
If you have any trees around your sewer line, a technician may suggest removing them before sewer line repair begins. You will also benefit from this, as tree roots are attracted to the moisture found in your pipes, which can cause clogs and leaks in the future.
