Drains should be cleaned on a regular schedule depending upon the trees within 100 feet of the drain line. Tree roots can travel 100 feet seeking water and roots will burst into a clay pipe or find a union in other pipes where they can enter and form a clog by literally growing in the drain line. The result is a total blockage will eventually form and the sewer will backup into the house or into the restaurant. There are other pictures you would rather see.
A plumbing company will detect root growth by running a TV camera through the line until the camera sees the clog. This camera can also see grease and debris that is clinging to the walls of the sewer line. Although this problem may not be as serious as tree roots, it is nonetheless going to block the line eventually or restrict the line.
Older homes have clay pipes which over time will crack and breakup forming a blockage that traps debris in the sewer line. The sections of the pipe that are damaged can be replaced without digging up the yard. An experienced plumber can insert a new drain line or replace a section of the line.
