If you're in the process of closing on a new home purchase, congratulations! This is an exciting time for anyone. It's also one where checking on a few important home fixtures and systems is vital, and the main sewer line is one of the single most necessary in this area.
At My Buddy the Plumber, we're happy to provide a wide range of main sewer line services for our Provo clients, including sewer line cleaning, trenchless sewer line repair and many others. We've assisted many clients with these or related services during their home purchase situation -- why is the main sewer line so important, and why should you consider having yours inspected by a plumbing professional before completing your purchase? Here's a primer.
A home inspection is a standard part of most sales, but there are many such inspections where only surface-level information is provided to the buyer. This can be problematic if your home inspector doesn't notice any issues with your main sewer line, but it later develops a break or other serious issue. Your new home may become uninhabitable until the problem is resolved.
This is why having a licensed plumber complete a pre-purchase inspection is so critical in Provo and other areas. A plumbing professional's detailed understanding of problems related to the main sewer line can help your agent and lender negotiate with you on any necessary repairs, or make an informed decision about accepting your offer if no such steps seem necessary.
The main sewer line is one of the single home areas where preventive maintenance is most important, and that's because of the potential for serious property damage if it's breached. An issue that goes undetected for too long can lead to sewage backups, flooding and other problems.
However, if potential blockages or other issues are identified in time, it will be simple and inexpensive to clean and flush the lines, or make other repairs on the spot. If left alone longer, however, such issues can grow exponentially in terms of cost and inconvenience -- leading to potential legal expenses on top of property damage and more.
Best of all, if an issue is indeed discovered within your main sewer line by our plumbers, we can typically solve the problem on the spot. This is especially helpful if it's a minor issue like tree roots or grease buildup. And for larger problems that would require more extensive work, we can advise you on whether this should be done immediately or scheduled for later on -- with help from our Provo plumbers finding the solution that works best for your unique situation.
