A sewer system backup or leakage can be a nightmare to deal with as a homeowner. Depending on the issue’s intensity, you may have to move out of your home to allow for repairs and to avoid the inconvenience during the said sewer repair in Bellevue, WA. However, if the problem isn’t serious, it’s possible for you to stay in the property while the replacement project is underway.

Weighing Your Options

To determine if moving out is necessary while we carry out a sewer line replacement, you must first evaluate what your priorities are. If the logistics of a temporary relocation is far more inconvenient than the actual process of repairs and replacement itself, it might be better to stay put.

However, if you have an elderly or little children in your household who are a bit more sensitive to dust, odors, and the general chaos of sewer repair services, a relocation just might be the ideal choice. That’s because, during this period, you won’t be in a position to use running water until we are done with the repairs.

Besides, sewer pipe line repair services are often a messy affair, and the unpleasant odor won’t give you and your family peace of mind.

If you’ve decided that moving out is the better course of action, we recommend staying with a friend, neighbor, or relative while we replace sewer line in your home. This way, you don’t have to worry about board and lodging fees. Rest assured that the work will not be dragged on longer than it should be.

Our plumber will evaluate the condition of your sewer line system and give you an estimate of the period needed to complete repairs. We will also provide you with an estimated cost of the sewer pipe line replacement.
