What is Tree Root Invasion?

As trees grow taller, their root system grows wider and thicker in search of water. Since roots are attracted by water, even the smallest leak in your system can cause them to invade. Roots will enter through the smallest of cracks and continue to grow as they find more water. Soon, the crack will grow larger as the roots do, ultimately causing your pipes to be filled with tree roots. When unnoticed, the crack will grow to keep growing bigger until the roots create a serious issue with blockages, separated the pipes, and pipes that have collapsed completely.

Protect Your Bloomington Pipes

To prevent tree root invasion, it’s important to take the following steps to protect your pipes. If you have a tree that’s caused problems or you suspect it will have the tree professional removed and schedule regular sewer camera inspection once a year. Regular inspections will help you catch minor problems in the system and take care of them before they become major issues.
