Sewer Line Repair & Replacement In Lorton, VA

If you notice substantial backup and believe your sewer lines may be clogged, it’s time to call McCarthy Home Services. Although there are many reasons you may have clogged sewer lines, trees are the number one cause for sewer line damage. With water continuously flowing through these underground pipelines, water vapor escapes through the pipe and into the surrounding soil. Tree roots are attracted to this water and will attempt to use it as a food source. The roots can crack and break the pipes, or even choke the pipes crushing them slowly to get their desired nutrients. Any cracks or holes in your sewer line need to be repaired quickly; otherwise, debris can flow in causing further blockage.

For over 20 years, we have helped Lorton, VA and the rest of Northern Virginia with plumbing services. As soon as you notice a change in the way your sewer lines drain, give McCarthy Services a call to set up an inspection. We will address the issues and figure out a personalized plan to have your water flowing appropriately again in no time.

Efficient In Sewer Line Repair

In addition to roots in sewer lines, objects that are flushed down the toilet or dropped down the sink can also cause clogged sewer lines and debris to accumulate. Extreme changes in temperature can cause sewer lines to crack, and sewer lines can break down simply because of age.

If your toilets and faucets are draining substantially slower, if you hear gurgling noises, or if you simply want a good sewer line cleaning, call McCarthy Services. We perform a video inspection of your sewer line to determine exactly what the problem is; therefore, we are extremely efficient in sewer line repair and sewer line replacement.

McCarthy Offers Trenchless & Trenching Sewer Line Repair

When you need sewer line repair or replacement, count on McCarthy Services to provide the best options for your home and your pipes. We offer both trenchless and trenching to efficiently, cleanly, and quickly get your water running again. After we deliver our initial assessment, we will be able to decide if you can go trenchless for your sewer line repair or replacement. While trenchless sewer line replacement costs more initially, it can save your backyard and landscaping from having to be torn out and replaced after we finish replacing or repairing your sewer line. Trenchless sewer line repairs, unfortunately, can’t be used if your pipes collapse entirely. You will also have to use trenched options if there are multiple curves and turns in your sewer line system.

How Do I Know If My Sewer Lines Need Replacing?

There are some instances where you will need to do a full or partial sewer line replacement. No worries though, because the experts at McCarthy Home Services can help by doing as little digging as possible to help cut the costs during your restoration of the yard. Below are some of the signs you may need to have your sewer lines replaced instead of repaired:

Old Piping: While pipes can last a long time, most averaging 50-100 years, they don’t last forever. If you don’t know when the last time they were serviced, consider the age of your home and when it was built. If your home is over 50 years old, replacement may be the right option for you.

Significant Trees: The bigger the tree, the larger the roots. Root systems are the largest reason for replacement because of the way they choke and bust through sewer lines looking for water.

Strange Sounds and Shaky Pipes: Do you hear noises after turning on your sinks or when your washing machine/dishwasher is in use? These sounds may be a sign of the pipes being clogged up and the longer it goes, the more likely a replacement is needed.

Recurring Issues: If you have taken care of your clog, but it keeps coming back every so often, you may have a more significant issue. Remember, it is best to not flush items like paper towels and feminine products down the drain. You also need to be careful with what fruits, veggies, and other foods you are placing down your garbage disposal.

Drains, Sinks, and Toilets Backed Up: If your system has been backed up or clogged for quite some time and you haven’t sought assistance for sewer line repairs, it may be too late. The damage is already done, and the professional team at McCarthy Services will have to replace them.
