The rainy season in Seattle seems to last all year. While the moisture brings growth and cool weather, it can be destructive on your pipelining system if you are not prepared. Clogged pipes, backups, and water flow problems are all common issues after significant rainfall. Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to prepare your Seattle pipelining system for rainy weather.
Check Seattle Gutters and Downspouts
A common reason for clogs and backups in the rainy season is due to blocked gutters. Debris such as dirt and twigs can easily create clogs that get in the way of your pipes draining properly. When these clogs occur, rainwater will become backed up and can cause external and internal damage to your building or home. Prior to a storm, it is a good idea to check any drainage system on your property and remove debris that may prevent water from draining correctly.
Get a Proper Inspection
With any change of season, it is a good idea to get a professional inspection. Trenchless Pipe Repairs offers modern technology to give you a detailed inspection in a minimally invasive way. The cameras we use allow us to inspect your pipelines from the inside, pinpointing any causes for concern.
Fix Any Leaks
Small holes and cracks in your pipelines can become much worse due to heavy rainfall, and moisture increases the likelihood of your pipes being affected by tree root intrusions. Once a tree root begins to grow in the crack of a pipe, it will not only cause the hole to grow, but can also cause serious clogs.
