You never know what's underground
When your sewer infrastructure is damaged, you need more than a plumber who will simply unclog a pipe, you need a sewer repair contractor with the knowledge and equipment to carefully dig up and replace the pipes and do it within city or county guidelines.
The most common issues with clogged pipes is root infiltration to clay and concrete pipes. We also see plenty of failing Orangeberg pipe that simply, reaches a point of collapse. A damaged pipe can allow sewage to leach into the ground, contaminating the ground and soil around the fault, which is obviously not a very good thing to have - especially if you have a garden nearby.
