The first step in root removal is to locate your problem area, occasionally blockages occur within the home, but most root related problems occur in between your house out to the city line.  To locate the problem area we use a specialized camera that is sent down the drain from the nearest clean out.  When the blockage has been found with the camera, a locator is used above ground to pinpoint directly where the blockage is, as well as the path that the snake (aka drain snake or sewer snake) will take on route to the blockage. We can help you identify the source of clogged drains with our techniques.

Tree roots like to make their way into your clay sewer drains, through cracks and joints (and apply pressure on clay pipes cracking them).  Techniques such as product applications (like RootX) to your drains can help prevent root growth but are only tentative measures in deterrence. 

Snaking a drain may be way to clear it of debris and removing the clay piping, but it is not a permanent solution. You may ask how do I clear tree roots in drains?
