Have you gone to flush your toilet and realized that the pressure of the water is weak & it takes quite a while for it to flush? Maybe you’ve smelt an odd odor coming from either the sink or the toilet recently? If you’re experiencing one of the two things mentioned above (or both!), chances are you’re dealing with a leaking or clogged draining system!
If you are dealing with these problems there is no need to panic, as repairs will usually solve this issue completely. If a drainage system stays broken for too long, however, you could be doing more harm than good. It is best you get this issue solved ASAP, and you will need to undergo an excavation to allow proper water flow & drainage. Below, we here at Mondo EX would like to explain some of the main indicators that usually suggest you are in need of excavation drainage.
Another problem that affects your drainage system caused by mother nature? You guessed it — tree roots are a common but silent killer when it comes to messing with the overall function of a drainage system. If you think of drain blockage, this may in fact be the main perpetrator. The more roots absorb water to keep the tree alive, the more the drainage system involved can be affected and not work properly. Usually there can be either a cracking or complete dislodge of water pipes.
If there are cracks in and around your drainage system, it is important that you get them addressed immediately. This is because cracks in your drainage pipes are usually early signs of an eventual collapse of your entire system. Most people will want to avoid a complete collapse, as the damage becomes much more severe and screws with your drainage system even more than it did beforehand. There is a term to describe this type of problem and it is commonly known as concrete cancer: the rusting of steel reinforcements because of water exposure. When you complete an excavation, this issue can be solved properly.
A Collapsed System
Whether caused by man or by mother nature, damages to an entire drainage system that causes it to collapse can be quite messy. The most common causes for this type of drainage issue are usually along the lines of earthquakes and root ingression. When it is a problem that is made by man himself, it is almost always due to bad preparation/implementation of construction plans. Regardless of the reasoning, however, the only way to fix this collapse in the system is by hiring a company to professionally and effectively implement a complete excavation of the space involved.
