As trees get older, roots start to spread and often get tangled in sewer lines. That’s when the problem starts. As they spread, tree roots clog sewer lines and eventually create back-ups in the home. If you have older trees on your property, watch out for frequently clogged drains and foul smells in the home. Call L.D. Smith Plumbing if you think your sewer line might be clogged. We will send one of our expert plumbers to check it out. Contact us here.
