Who is the first person that you contact when there is a sewage backup at your home or business? Most residential and commercial property owners would call in a plumber that can arrive at the scene quickly in order to work on the problem. As the plumbing truck pulls up you begin to experience a bunch of mixed feelings. At first you are relieved that the problem will be taken care of. However that is quickly replaced with a feeling of fear as the realization sets in that this could be an extremely expense situation. So much for that vacation you were planning. Next you begin to rationalize. If the plumber can at least temporarily patch the problem maybe you won’t have to deal with this again for a long time and you can still take that vacation. When the plumber informs you that there is a temporary fix but it will not work for the long term all you can think about is if the toilets flush and sewage does not continue to back up into the property than all is good with the world. Lastly, anger sets in as you are stuck cleaning up the nasty mess.
Unfortunately for most property owners in this situation it will not be the last time that you go through this roller coaster of emotions. Temporary patches are just a short-term answer to an ongoing problem. It is always better to tackle this unpleasant circumstance head on and have it fixed on a more permanent basis. That is unless you enjoy cleaning up raw sewage, and having your property in an upside down state every few months. Fortunately, sewer line repair and replacement in Germantown, Maryland does not need to be the all-encompassing hassle that you have been dreading.
What is Trenchless Sewer Line Repair and Replacement?
In the not too distant past when sewer pipes needed to be either fixed or replaced the plumbing contractor had no choice but to excavate a long trench in order to expose the sewer line. Thanks to modern technology this outdated approach is no longer necessary. Instead of excavating a humongous trench the plumbing contractor only needs to make one or two small access points in order to reach the sewer line. From the access point(s) the entire job is performed using high-tech equipment. The trenchless process is significantly less expensive because the cost of excavation is completely eliminated. Property owners are also able to save money on the repair itself due to the reduced labor involved. It can take as little as one day to complete the job from start to finish.
What are the Benefits of Trenchless Sewer Repair and Replacement?
The certainly are multiple reasons for property owners to choose trenchless sewer repair and replacement. Obviously saving a lot of money is at the top of the list. Landscaping is close behind. Property owners no longer need to worry about plumbing contractors digging up their yard, or destroying the driveway or parking lot. Convenience is also a major factor. The plumbing contractor must turn of the water when they are repairing or replacing the sewer line. It is extremely difficult to operate a house or commercial building without running water. You cannot use any of the toilets, or water faucets until the repair or replacement is complete. While the trenchless process takes a day or two at the most, the excavation method can take upwards of multiple weeks.
