Rooting Services

If you’re like many homeowners, you’re probably very careful of what you put down the drains. You probably already know that things like grease, fats, and oils can get stuck and solidify within your pipes and cause major blockages. But even the most fastidious people sometimes find their sewer lines clogged, no matter how much attention they pay to what’s going into the sink!

The main culprit here is something you can’t easily control at all: tree roots! Tree roots are drawn to the warmth, water, and nutrients flowing through your pipes, and they extend little tendrils into any cracks they can find. Eventually, these little tendrils can start to expand, trapping things like food particles, toilet paper, and more. They can even get so bad that they split open your drains completely!

Don’t let tree roots take over your drains—call R.V. Carey’s for rooting services today at 301-424-8899 or click here!

Our Tree Root Removal Process

At R.V. Carey’s, our mission is to make plumbing service as painless for you as possible. We start our tree root removal process with a video camera inspection that will show us exactly where the tree roots have gotten into your pipes and how much damage they’ve caused.

Once we’ve figured out the extent of the tree root invasion, we start by using a drain snaking auger that slices through the roots and gets water flowing again, or a high-pressure hydro jetting system to blow away the roots with water. Depending on how extensive the damage is, we may also recommend trenchless pipe repair to prevent the problem from recurring.

If you’ve got a major blockage in your drain in Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, DC and you think tree roots may be to blame, don’t wait—call R.V. Carey’s for rooting services today at 301-424-8899or click here!

“I want to communicate to RV Carey’s that in me you have a very happy customer. You did a beautiful job installing my new boiler. The crew started working at 7 a.m. and did not leave my house until they made sure that everything was in working order and well adjusted, all trash was removed and all my questions were answered. And that was at 7:30 p.m.” – Michael

We charge based on time and materials. Why? First, no two plumbing jobs are the same. Even a seemingly simple leak repair can vastly differ from another leak repair! Since a job may take longer for one person than another, a flat fee may lead you to overpay for your service. Next, we feel we can provide a better service by encouraging our technicians to work carefully instead of rushing between jobs. By charging time and materials, we’re able to ensure that you get the highest quality of service possible while still sticking to your budget.
