Houston, Texas (PRWEB) July 11, 2014
Tree roots tend to grow long and strong, consequently keeping the tree firmly in its place. However, this does not usually bode well for sewer pipes. Since sewer pipes transport water, nutrients, and oxygen, which are essential for trees' growth, roots can actually grow into them, and this causes extensive damage to the pipes. Thus, Southern Plumbing Services, LLC, which has been providing plumbing services in the Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown metro area for the past decade, recently announced that it was introducing sewer replacement services for plumbing systems damaged by tree roots.
This new service from Southern Plumbing is particularly crucial because of the health dangers damaged sewer lines pose. Integrated into plumbing systems for sanitary reasons, sewages transport human waste, food preparation, and laundry, among other sources, to a collection point for treatment or disposal. Ruptured lines, however, disrupt that flow, or can even cause it to flood or spill close to the earth's surface. In addition to the stench, sewage carries several pathogenic organisms that can cause or transmit diseases.
When such a problem occurs, Southern Plumbing can arrive at the designated location to conduct the much needed repair as soon as possible. The company also removes the tree roots that caused the damage. If the client does not wish to stick with the old lines or the professionals from the company determine that they are unrepairable, they can replace them with brand new ones. Southern Plumbing technicians are available 24 hours a day to attend to sewer line repairs and sewer replacements.
South Plumbing Services recommends that people who plant trees do so at 10 feet away from sewer lines. This distance ensures that roots do not grow far enough to cause damage to the lines.
