This Drain is a REAL Pain!

No one in the Elgin area ever wants a clogged drain in their home or business. It virtually shuts down that room when it happens. You may need Elgin’s drain cleaning experts. Sometimes nature is the culprit. You can’t always avoid tree roots from “rooting” their way into the drainage system causing it to slow down to a crawl. There are some things that you CAN avoid.

Here is a partial list –

1.  Be careful how much human and pet hair is going down that drain.

2.  Soap scum accumulates over time.

3.  Food that is dumped down the drain.

4.  Baby wipes and diapers (seniors…ignore this one)

5.  Dreaded kitty litter…we know you know better!
