If you need preventive maintenance, repairs or routine servicing, contact our team to get your drain cleaning started. We will schedule a convenient appointment time that works for you. Our licensed plumber will show up when your appointment time arrives to begin working on your drains.


Your drain cleaning begins with a detailed video inspection using a camera that gets into the pipe and lets us see everything that’s happening up close. Once we get a precise map of the pipe and its trouble spots, we can get in with our Hydroscrub® process. During your drain cleaning, one of our technicians will tackle your drain cleaning needs with our advanced HydroScrub® jetting services before running hot water through your pipes to disintegrate any debris or blockages. Our plumbers will use a drain snake to clear your drain of any obstructions.

After completing the initial drain cleaning service, talk to your plumber about setting up a regular maintenance schedule for your home. Annual maintenance inspections help ensure everything is working properly. Additionally, they can catch issues early before they turn into expensive emergencies. We will check your drains and other plumbing components during maintenance for potential problems.

What to Do Until the Plumber Arrives

If you're experiencing a plumbing emergency, contact us for quick service. While our 24/7 emergency services will get a plumber to you as soon as possible, there are steps you can take to reduce the damage while you wait. Taking all necessary precautions helps protect your home and its residents and sets you up for a potential insurance claim. Once you have spotted a plumbing emergency and called Mr. Rooter, you should take action to reduce safety issues.

Here are five things you can do while waiting for your plumber to arrive:

  1. Remove excess water: Use towels or a mop to remove excess water in your home, as water can ruin drywall and flooring and cause mold to develop.
  2. Take photos and videos: Quickly take a video or snap some photos, as this evidence may help with an insurance claim and help the plumber do their job.
  3. Turn off the electricity: Turn off your water heater and other appliances that may come into contact with water to prevent damage to your water heater tank.
  4. Shut off the water supply: Turn off your home's main water supply near your water meter or shut off the valve for the clogged or leaking fixture.
  5. Drain liquid from lines: The residual liquid will remain in your pipes even after the water supply is shut off. Go outside and turn on all fixtures to thoroughly purge water from the system, which may help with insurance claims.
