If you are thinking of moving to a new house or your sewers are giving you trouble, then it is time for a sewer inspection. Many house owners don’t understand the necessity of a sewer inspection. Many people will inspect the house, but the sewers are always ignored. Sewer inspection is important in any other house inspection and everyone should conduct a sewer inspection before buying a new house. After the sewer inspection, you may have to do some sewer drain repair work.

Why Conduct a Sewer Inspection?
There are many problems that can occur in a sewer line. One of the most common problems is tree roots growing into the sewer line. Roots will crawl through the small openings and expand throughout the pipes. These tree roots can cause serious damage to the sewer lines. Using chemicals can kill the tree roots, but if they are not removed completely, you may end up with a broken sewer pipe.
Sewers lines are generally very old and most of them will require some fixing sooner or later. Inspecting the sewer line before moving to a new house is the best idea to avoid any future problems.
Flooring for your Bathroom Remodeling
When choosing a new flooring during bath remodeling, you should think about 4 things:
How easily cleaned it is
There are many different types of flooring to choose from, but ceramic, stone, or marble tiles fit the above considerations best, for bathroom remodeling. If you choose tile, but think that it will be too cold, an option that may work for your bath remodel, is to install subfloor heating coils, which would keep these floors warm.
How to Do a Sewer Inspection
You can simply call a plumbing company to inspect your sewer lines. Ask them whether they are going to use a camera for the sewer inspection. Generally, the plumbers will attach a video camera to something and you will be able to see the video feed from the sewer line. You will get a clear picture of whether your sewer is clean or clogged. If the sewer is damaged, ask the plumbers what kind of materials should be used to replace that portion. It might cost you a little for the sewer inspection process, but compared to the cost of replacing the sewer, it is very small.
