Compromised sewer pipes must be fixed at the first sign of problems to prevent catastrophic damage and the cost of repairs from skyrocketing. Bob Oates Sewer & Rooter advises property owners to get in touch with our team immediately for sewer repair in Tacoma, WA as soon as they notice a problem, no matter how small it might seem.

Postponing getting your sewer pipes checked out and thus delaying sewer repair services can result in the following repercussions.

Structural Damage

Beyond damaging personal belongings such as furniture and other valuables, leakage from affected pipes may also compromise the structural integrity of a property. The damage may impact the building’s foundation and weaken the beams supporting the structure. As such, failure to consider sewer pipe line repair on time could become a more costly and complicated affair.

Sewage Backups

Sewage backup occurs when wastewater from your home is not able to drain into the main sewer line, possibly due to an obstruction in the pipe line. When this happens, the sewage will have nowhere else to go but back and up out your drains. Sewage backups can be severe enough of a problem that they require a complete sewer line replacement.

Sanitation Issues

A harmless problem like slight leakage may build up into something bigger and greater if not solved promptly. When wastewater does not drain properly it becomes a sanitation problem, especially when it results in water pools, it poses a health risk to the habitants. These pools of water may also attract pests and unpleasant odors to the home and other sanitation issues. Always replace sewer line as prompt as possible to prevent this from ever happening.

In many instances, any symptom of a sewer pipe issue is always a manifestation of something more serious, as in the case of sewage backups as a result of a collapsed pipe. Whatever it is, it’s best to get in touch with a reputable sewer repair company right away.
