Tree roots growing into sewer lines are a common problem. Roots can crawl into tiny openings and expand in the sewer line causing damage to the pipes.
Additionally, homes built prior to 1972 are equipped with cast iron sanitary sewer pipes. This piping has an original life expectancy of 40 to 50 years. This piping corrodes due to age, causing leakage, blockages, backups and damage to the homes. The soil below a home’s floors and the walls become saturated with the contaminated sewer water, creating potentially hazardous conditions. It is not a question of “if” this piping will fail, but when.
Champia inspects these sewer lines by accessing the sewer lines through a clean out on the outside of the home. The time to find out about such problems is before buying the property!
The repairs required to replace the piping can be very expensive and require you to vacate your home. Identifying the condition at the early stages will allow you to plan and address the problem before your home is uninhabitable. Additionally, what many homeowners might not know is that the damage and repairs may be covered by their homeowner’s insurance.
A Sewer Camera Inspection includes a detailed report documenting the damages. Additionally, our free SewerGard warranty is extended from 90 days to 6 months if Champia performs a Sewer Camera Inspection.
