Sewer lines are a crucial part of your home's infrastructure. They're not just a drain for the toilet—they carry waste from your entire home to the city sewer system. That's why keeping them in good shape all year round is so important.
Sewer lines can get clogged up over time, and when they do, they can cause some serious problems. That's why you should have scheduled maintenance or have a professional crew who can inspect your system from time to time to ensure you have the smoothest flowing sewerage.

Causes of Sewer Line Damage
When your pipes are damaged, it can be dangerous. Water damage is not the only thing you have to worry about. A sewer backup can also cause health issues and spread disease. Here are some of the most common causes of sewer line damage:
Lack of regular maintenance: Drainage pipes need to be inspected regularly for leaking joints, cracks, and other defects that could cause them to fail over time. If this isn't done, you could end up with a clog that may send sewage into your basement or crawlspace.
Regular ground freezing and thawing: When water freezes in your pipes it expands and then breaks the pipe when it thaws out again—causing leaks or worse! This happens more often in areas with a lot of snowfall during the winter months, so keep an eye on what's going on under your house if this often happens where you live!
Aging pipes: As pipes age, they can become brittle, which means they're much more likely to break when pressure is put on them during use (like flushing away waste from your toilet). Replacing old pipes before they break down completely can save you from having huge repair bills down the road!
Tree roots growing into the pipes: If tree roots grow into your sewer line and cause it to collapse or break, this will cause sewage to flow up slowly through your drains. If you notice that there are trees near any part of your home's foundation, it's important that these trees are trimmed regularly by professionals so that they don't grow into any part of your home's structure.
Hair, grease, and oil buildup: Hair and oils from cooking can build up in your drain lines over time which can cause clogs as well as damage to other parts of your plumbing system.
