Your sewer line endures almost constant use, and repairs are usually inevitable. When you trust us to fix your sewer line, you can rest assured that the repairs will be completed accurately and efficiently. We even offer trenchless repairs whenever possible to minimize the impact to your Bellevue home or business.
What Causes Sewer Line Damage?
Our damp Washington climate means your pipes are surrounded by moisture inside and out. The damp environment can accelerate corrosion and rust that will eventually compromise the pipe. Wooded areas like ours also experience invasive tree roots that can work their way into your sewer line through a small crack or pinhole.
Aside from environmental factors, improper disposal of food waste, paper products, and other materials can cause a buildup in your system. A clog can add pressure to your system and lead to leaks, weakened joints, or other damage.
How to Identify Problems with Your Sewer Line
Some symptoms of a damaged sewer line are easy to ignore or brush off as a minor inconvenience. However, early detection of sewer line damage is critical for quick and easy repairs. Don’t ignore plumbing problems, and contact us right away if you experience:
- Water damage or puddles in and around your home or business
- Persistent clogs in one or more fixtures
- A strong sewage smell
- Especially lush patches in your yard
- Sudden problem with mold or mildew
It is important to let a professional fix your sewer line. Do-it-yourself repairs can cause even more damage to your system and pose a health risk to yourself and those around you.
Methods of Sewer Repair
After a thorough inspection of your sewer line, our skilled technician will recommend one of our reliable methods of repair.
Trenchless sewer repair is a modern technique that is minimally-invasive. We typically coat a flexible sleeve of material with epoxy resin to line the interior of your pipe. The lining is inserted into the pipe from a nearby access point and inflated to adhere it. The resin fills in areas of damage and cures within a few hours, resulting in an extremely durable and smooth surface that is resistant to future obstructions.
If trenchless repairs are not possible or extensive damage is present, traditional excavation repairs can also be performed. Excavation provides us with direct access to the affected pipe in order to make the appropriate repairs. We keep our work area as small as possible to reduce the impact to your property.
