Tree Root Destroys Pipe and Causes Water Damage in Pembroke Pines Home?

4/9/2024 (Permalink)

A tree root has grown in and around a plumbing pipe. We restore water damage 24 hours a day in Broward County.

Our local Pembroke Pines and West Miramar teams are trusted leaders in water damage restoration services. Tree roots can significantly threaten underground plumbing pipes, because as trees grow, their roots naturally seek out sources of moisture, including underground pipes carrying water. Here are some examples of how tree roots can damage plumbing pipes:

Root Penetration: Tree roots can extend long distances underground and exert significant pressure on surrounding objects, including pipes. When roots encounter a crack or gap in a pipe joint, they can infiltrate the pipe in search of water. Once inside, the roots continue to grow and expand, gradually obstructing the water flow and causing further damage to the pipe.

Pipe Blockage: As tree roots grow inside the pipe, they can create blockages that restrict or completely block the water flow. This can lead to backups and overflows within the plumbing system, causing water to back up into sinks, toilets, or floor drains in the home.

Pipe Collapse: In severe cases, tree roots can cause enough damage to a pipe to result in partial or complete collapse. When a pipe collapses, water flow is completely obstructed, leading to significant water damage inside the home. The collapsed pipe may also require extensive repairs or replacement, adding to the cost and inconvenience for homeowners.
