What is Tree Root Invasion and how does it Damage Your Pipes?

Home » What is Tree Root Invasion and how does it Damage Your Pipes?

When residential and commercial customers think about pipe damage, they often envision stubborn clogs, gritty buildup, and destructive corrosion. What they don’t think about is tree root invasion. In the Pacific Northwest, tree roots can cause extensive deterioration to underground water lines and sewer pipes. Fortunately, Apollo Plumbing Service, Inc. has leading solutions to remove invasive tree roots and restore functionality to Portland area pipes.

How Tree Roots Cause Damage to Portland, Oregon Pipes

Tree roots are attracted to water, so if your pipes are leaking even the smallest amounts of fluid into the soil, tree roots will grow toward it. As the roots grow, they can aggressively invade your pipes and drains. The roots can break apart pipe joints, create cracks, and cause other invasive damage. That damage can cause leaks, low water pressure, unexpectedly high water bills, and other issues for your home or office. Left unrepaired, a small plumbing issue can quickly escalate into a major and time-consuming problem.
