"He came out within a half hour of when I had called him on a Saturday. They were very good. I had paid $150 for 1 hour of weekend labor. They were very cooperative.

-Ann & Jon W.

"He diagnosed the problem, and gave me instructions on how to fix it. For example, he said the next day would be above freezing so there will be some thawing. He" showed me where the access pipe is so I saw that it was completely frozen. He said that I may have to plunge it when it defrosts, but that I didn't need him to come unless that was unsuccessful.

Do you know if your sewer lines are covered by homeowner's insurance? Repairs can cost thousands. Check your insurance policy to see if you're covered.

It’s almost painful to shell out hard-earned money for some home projects. Unlike adding a new deck or remodeling the kitchen, replacing a sump pump is hardly cause for a party.

Consult a professional sewer cleaning company that will discuss your options and tailor a maintenance program that is effective and affordable, says DiPalma. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Sally Z. of Grand Rapids, Mich.)

Having your sewer line cleaned is one of the most overlooked home maintenance tasks. One highly rated provider explains why it's so important and how it works.

Sewer Cleaning reviews in Portland


It did not go well, he tried to take a little snake and clean the pipe, he actually made it worse. He threw the sewer water out in my yard. They had me waiting for days, then finally told me they didn't do those types of jobs
- David R.

It went great, provider was prompt and communicated clearly when we ran into some collapsed pope that needed to be dug up. They came out when they said they would, did what they said they would, and performed first class work. I would use them again.
- John B.

I had a backed up sewer for the first time in my life. Quite gross! I called at 7:30 am. Receptionist was professional and said someone would call in the next 3 hours to come by. He called about 10:45, was at my house before 11;00 and finished before noon. The plumber was very nice, relaxed, cool. He sent out a large snake and cut some roots from my line. $134. Which seems a reasonable price. He didn't tell me about additional recommended services (aka - manipulating me into additional services.) I'm a single mom and I worry that predatorial repair guys will take advantage of me. Not this time. I'm very happy with this company.
- Kristin A.

I own a property down there but our daughter lives there and she coordinates most of the stuff going on down there. I do know that we have used them and it has been a positive relationship. They have been very helpful. My daughter is a college student and she has a crazy schedule. They have been easy for her to contact. They have been able to work around her schedule and get there when she needed them to, and they were very professional in dealings. They are a little expensive.
- Paul R.

My septic backed up into my basement back in December and I had my septic cleaning company jet out the blocked pipe. They came into the house to inspect the plumbing but obviously didn't do a good enough job as the blockage returned yesterday. This time I called

spotted problems right away. First, some of the plumbing wasn't braced properly and it settled over the years causing a back pitch. But the real culprit came when he opened the U-trap. The first side didn't show anything but when he opened the other side (unlike the previous contractor) he found a large deposit of hardened grout reside. I guess you can't wash grout covered buckets and tools in your laundry sink (or any residential sink for that matter). Lesson learned!!! It was definitely my fault and he could have made me pay dearly by replacing that whole section of plumbing, but he worked diligently to remove the grout and clear up the system, all the while instructing me on how to keep my system running more efficiently.

was friendly, knowledgeable, informative and great to work with. I wouldn't for a second hesitate on using him again in the future.
- Jeffrey H.

The service went okay. I am not sure they got the drain cleaned as well as I had hoped. The technician was personable and neat while working. It seemed he was not sure where to enter the sewer line at ground level and I could have had him clean the lines at another location. I feel like I only got the video inspection and I feel like they did not do any real work on the sewer lines.I had no problem scheduling the deal.

We called them for a frozen kitchen drain as they had advertised a low 100 cleaning charge + trip charge. The plumber came over within 2 hours of the call. The trip charge ended up being 40 and then we were told that we needed to up get a 420 dollar heated pressure water service to unclog the drain.
Off course we were upset since we told them the issue specifically over the phone. It was not the plumbers fault but we should have been advised of this cost over the phone.
It was cheaper to not have their $420 service and call RotoRooter who are not inexpensive in the first place.
A $140 waste of our time. If a few people read this and go elsewhere it will be worth it.
- Osborn D.

They're very good. They came out once and they tried to unclog it but they couldn't so we had to dig it up form the outside. They came back and finished the job. There was no problem with them coming back and finishing the job. There was no slack time or anything. They had nice employees.
