Roots grow toward water vapor or moisture. The root grows and enters the small cracks and joints, which may be present in your pipe. After a root enters a pipe, it divides hundreds of times to form a large mass of tender root ends. This root mass will accumulate a thick coating of grease which will collect on the root mass until a blockage occurs. When a blockage occurs Tree Root Removal becomes necessary.
What is done for emergency treatment of root blockages?
An emergency response to this type of sewer line blockage is to snake the line. Other methods can be used depending on your specific situation.

What will happen if I don’t do anything about roots in my sewer pipes?
