This damage may save up the sewer lines, but the whole process also tears up the beautiful trees and landscaping of the lawn.

Landscaping is a time taking and costly process; this is why many homeowners go ahead with the trenchless sewer repair.
A sewer inspection is needed to find out the real problem, and for that reason, the Albany, NY home inspector will examine the sewer line with a special camera. This camera is long and flexible that is inserted into the pipe through a drain. This process helps the Albany, NY home inspector to see the length of the sewer and the amount of damage. After the first session of inspection, the sewer pipe is then inspected from the deepest point. This shallow point usually exists outside or in the basement of the house. The Albany, NY home inspection experts flushed out these pipes with a hydro-jetter, and clean all the debris with a mechanical plumbing snake.
