I just wanted to pass along a quick note of sincere gratitude for your guys helping my mom with her basement yesterday. When I stopped by there last night ... after work, Keith and Eddie were in the process of loading a dumpster with boxes and bags that were in her basement. She got water in her basement from the recent torrential rains, and they could not have been nicer fellas. They were helping her work within her insurance coverage limit and wanted to remove as much damaged materials as they could, and fill the dumpster to its capacity, in order to try to save her money. Just the fact that they were doing that told me that you guys run a stand up organization with integrity. They were also very helpful in explaining the cleanup process with a sort of military-grade hydrogen peroxide process. I very much appreciate them helping my mom out. I also had a clog in a drain in the last year and had a very positive experience with that, with the guy who came out giving me an extra 5-10 minutes to give me a ballpark figure on adding a shower to my bathtub. Great work, and thank you again!

I wanted to take the time to provide positive feedback for a problem I had. After a miscommunication, the manager called me personally and rectified the situation. I cannot say ... enough nice things about how he handled it. He treated me more than fairly, and for that, I really truly appreciate it. I will definitely recommend this company after my experience. Thank you!

Great service. Service Tech Dustin was on-time and very easy to work with. He was honest with his assessment and did not try to embellish the bill. The ... service was beyond what we expected and the bill was less than anticipated. We will call you again for future needs.

In all my years as a homeowner I've dealt with a wide variety of companies and service technicians and the service I've gotten from Roto-Rooter has always been head and ... shoulders above the rest. I especially want to thank my service tech Conner Hunt, he did a fantastic job representing the company. He was very helpful, friendly and fixed my issue and offered suggestions on how to avoid this in the future. I'll definitely be coming back as long as you hire people like Conner!

We had a severe kitchen clog. We were fortunate to get Roto Rooter service man Rome. His attitiude and communication were excellent. He diagnosed and repaired an extensive problem and ... gave good advice for future use. I have been a home owner for 25 years and have never had a more pleasant and professional service technician than Rome. I'd call them up and ask for his help if needed.

Monday morning, Feb. 21, our sewer line backed up. In the basement we had a stinking puddle. We first contacted the last sewer place to service us, but they couldn't ... work us in till that Friday. Then we called you, and we had Joe at our house in a couple of hours. He snaked out the line, got it draining properly, and more than that provided a thorough explanation of what had happened-- rots were growing into the line-- and the steps we could take in future, starting with sending a camera down there. All in all, he was thoroughly professional and terrifically helpful. Thanks very much; next time we'll certainly call you first.

Backstory: Deep clog 6' down the line, toilet already off by previous handyman unable to fix. In calling Roto-Rooter, both the gal who fielded my call and the service tech, ... Kyle, were amazing! The gal fielding my call (I wish I knew her name), made sure to have someone out the same day to fix the clog so we could hopefully use the toilet again. I very much felt she cared about our situation. Kyle worked his magic quickly and cleanly including reinstalling the toilet and upgrading the supply line and bolts. He was DELIGHTFUL. I can't rave enough about him. Thank you so much, Roto-Rooter, for coming to our rescue yesterday! Gratefully, Carmen & John

I meant to say Conner came over to our house, I by mistake on my earlier review said Cory. Conner came over with another young man and did a ... great job of fixing our slow drain in the bathtub, and checked the other one and made sure it was all cleaned out. They both were very nice. Conner has done drain cleaning at our house before.

Cory came over with a helper. We had a slow bathtub drain. Cory cleaned out the trap, ran the rotor rooter down the drain a ways to make sure ... it was clear. Then after he was done, ran the water to make sure it was draining the way it should. He also checked our other bathtub drain and did the same thing. He and his helper were very nice.

Conner and Andy were so amazing! Before calling Roto-Rooter, I had my regular plumber come out twice within a 2 month span to unclog my sewer drain and both times, ... water came up out of my floor drain within a few days and continued to do so for awhile until just last week when it turned into sewage backup - and a lot of it. Bleh! I was done with my regular plumber, so I decided to call the experts - Roto-Rooter - and they were quick to help me out - even on their 24-hour line since the backup happened in the middle of the night. They gave me great service, assured me that things my plumber said needed to be replaced didn't actually need to be replaced, explained everything to me in easy terms, showed me what my lines look like, and very quickly fixed the issue once it was found. They were very slow to add on extra work if it wasn't necessary, and consulted their higher ups just to be sure. I can't tell you how much I appreciated that - the fact that they made sure I was taken care of the right way and weren't trying to get more money out of me. I would recommend these guys any day! Thank you so much, Conner and Andy!

Mike Boyd was great! My sewer line was draining slowly, and like most home repair problems, I feared the worst (breakage, roots, sagging, etc.). Mike came out with ... a camera and quickly diagnosed the problem. He cleared the sludge in my drain and worked with my warranty company to get a jetting scheduled. He even gave me tips on how to keep my drain clean on my own! Mike is a p-r-o in every sense of the word!
