Drain cleaning boston

Homeowners and home buyers should take heed of the house’s pipes and sewer system before making any major decisions. Of all the different structures of the house, the sewage system is one of the most used — as well as vulnerable. Over time, rust, clogs, dents, leaks, and general damage can severely undermine the pipes, putting any attempts to sell a house in jeopardy. Home buyers would be hard-pressed to consider a home with a faulty sewage system.

Drain repair is simply a must for any home intended to be sold off. And even if it’s not, having a damaged sewage system is — to put it lightly — undesirable. In general, pipes older than 40 years are prime candidates for replacement, or at least inspection. Pipes older than that are susceptible to serious damage and wear. If left un-repaired, they can cause damage to other parts of the house. Or even stop working altogether.

Nobody wants that.

Then again, no one wants to tear up their front or backyards (sometimes both) in they can help it. Traditional methods of sewage pipe repair often require digging large trenches in the lawn in order to reach the pipes. The work is heavy, long, and often leads to further restoration work needed to fix the lawn. Even when homeowners do need drain repair services, some are hesitant to hire a service like that.

That is why trenchless pipe repair is so invaluable for homeowners who want a functioning sewage system but want to keep their lawns intact. Trenchless sewer repair, as the name suggests, does not dig large trenches. Instead, repair crews dig two modest holes in the lawn: one to lead the new pipes through and one to receive them at the other end. This method can draw a pipe through the existing pipe; that way, the old pipes do not have to be physically removed. Just replaced.

Though trenchless drain repair has been around for about 15 years, only a few homeowners have heard about it until now. One Angie’s List poll, for example, found that 78% of the respondents had never heard of “no-dig” sewage repair. Thankfully, today the practice of trenchless pipe lining is in full swing.
