[03/20/20]   To Our Valued Customers,
In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, we know that you are experiencing unprecedented challenges. Roto-Rooter is committed to remaining open so that we can continue to support our customers.

We are aware of the severity of this national disruption and are trying to be as compassionate and flexible as possible, especially concerning our customers’ welfare. We are thankful that our resources allow us to sustain our normal business operations while keeping our employees safe.

With countless families staying home we want to remind everyone that paper towels and most disposable wipes are not meant to be flushed. Flushable baby wipes and regular wipes been proven to take longer to break down when compared with traditional toilet paper. As they make their way down the pipes, rather than breaking down quickly, they start clogs that lead to blockages and cause serious damage. However, we understand accidents do happen. If your toilets or pipes do become clogged, please give us a call. We are here to help

As always, we will continue to focus on serving our valued clients, and are grateful for your trust and business.

Slow floor drain? Check out all the junk Roto-Rooter just pulled out of this restaurant kitchen drain in St. Louis. It's important to keep drain covers screwed down tight so these items can't be easily swept into floor drains.



Today is Employee Appreciation Day so we want to express our sincere appreciation to all the dedicated employees working for Roto-Rooter, coast-to-coast and around the world. Thank you! You are the best in the industry!

This is what your sewer pipe looks like when tree roots work their way into the pipe through joints and cracks. Eventually, the roots will stop sewage from flowing out and cause it to back up into your home. Roto-Rooter cuts away the roots and keeps the pipe flowing.
