Clogged Drains

If you have a clogged sink or toilet, don't grab for the chemicals until you know what's down there. We're assuming you probably wouldn't want to douse your child's favorite action figure or Grandma's wedding ring in chemicals. Our licensed plumbers have had more than their fair share of surprises.

Our plumbers will use a snake tool to get inside the drain and pull out the clog. Sometimes it's just a clump of hair. Other times it's something more important. Take advantage of our drain cleaning service to be on the safe side. If the plumbing snake doesn't work, we can flush the drain so the clog dislodges.

Sewer Backups

A clogged drain could be the least of your problems. If all the drains in your home are clogged, turn off the water supply to your home and call our emergency plumbers as soon as possible. Many homeowners notice a foul odor coming from clogged drains right before they have a sewer backup. Fortunately, our plumbers can flush the sewer line so water can flow freely again.

If the clog was caused by opportunistic tree roots, you may need sewer line repair to fix cracked pipes. Depending on how many trees are on your property, you may want to just plan on scheduling sewer drain cleaning as needed. Our drain cleaning service can give you peace of mind that you're doing everything you can to protect residential plumbing.
